You know that little pain of rejection you feel that drives you to work harder? That’s a human seeking validation! A person will put up with things that aren’t right for the sake of “love” or acceptance. But not only women do this! Man’s ego thrives on praise and adoration! As humans, we tend to block out any bad emotion and only gravitate to what makes us feel good. That is the perfect recipe to land yourself in a toxic relationship.
This person had no significant role in my life, but dare I say I started missing them, occasionally wondering if I’d done something wrong, pondering if they were just busier, while coming to terms with the fact I just wasn’t a priority anymore.
