Don’t ever let someone mistreat you. It doesn’t matter how much you love them. It doesn’t matter if you love them enough to sacrifice your life for their well-being. Because, guess what, you are not helping them by being their punching bag. No matter what they say, they DON’T NEED YOU. If someone has a controlling, manipulative, or abusive personality, what they need is NOT a victim. They need to change, and that will never happen if you keep letting them get away with it. And maybe they never will change. That’s their choice, and you have no power over it. Maybe they’ll always have a problem. But if you really care about them, you won’t let yourself BE their problem. And if they really care about you, they won’t treat you like one.
