Love, Heartbreak

Guys Who Make You Question Yourself Are Not Worth Your Damn Time

We've all been with that one person who always made us feel guilty. 

No matter what the fight was about or who was right or wrong, we somehow always ended up accepting the blame and apologizing. Sometimes we truly felt like we deserved it, and other times we just wanted the arguing to end, and we knew that was the quickest way. 

This specific kind of manipulation is hard to spot when you're in deep (and don't really want to breakup with the person).

If you've been with someone like this for awhile, you've probably started doubting your own sense of right and wrong. It's like you don't know what to believe anymore. 

Being that unsure of yourself is a sign of a bad, toxic relationship. And you need to get away, immediately. 


A person who makes you feel constantly guilty is not a person who has your best interests. And staying in a relationship with them will do nothing but hold you back and keep you feeling sad and unsure. 

These kinds of people need control to feel happy. They need to feel like you're at a place where you need them, making it hard for you to leave.

If you're confident in your values and your decisions, this person will do everything they can to tear that shit down. 

On paper, breaking up with a person like this seems like a no-brainer, but it's a lot more difficult to get away from in real life. Especially if you've been together a long time and are a big part of each other's lives. 

But nobody deserves to feel guilty all the time or to constantly be questioning themselves. That's no way to live. 


So if you've got a million and one alarms going off in your head right now, listen to them and break it off. 

Take control of your life and your happiness out of the hands of another person and back into your own. 

Because nobody should have that power but you.
