It’s the feeling of wanting to fix someone. You want to save them. More than anything, you want it to be different this time. You want your prince charming. You want your happy ending.
So you try with everything in you to salvage this relationship. You quickly run back to the person who broke you, time and time again. You genuinely make yourself believe things are going to be different this time. They have changed. They are going to better. They are finally going to meet you in the middle and start putting in more effort.
“You can't keep dancing with the devil and wonder why you’re still in hell.”
They haven’t changed. Things aren’t going to better. You are still going to end up hurt, broken and crying yourself to sleep, again. This is the person that they are. This is who you two are together. They are toxic. They bring out a very dark and unhappy person in you.
This isn’t going to change.
Not today, not tomorrow and not in a couple of years. The longer you stay in this is the further away you are from moving on and getting past this. The more times you go back to them, the more time you waste when you could have been working on moving on.
The hardest thing to wrap our heads around is that sometimes love isn’t enough. Love isn’t enough to save this person and it’s not enough to fix the broken relationship either.
So you have no choice but to let go.
You’re only shot at moving forward, healing and having any shot at having a healthy relationship is to leave this person far behind you.
It’s gonna hurt like hell. It won’t be easy, but it’s better this way.
