Some men can be so toxic to your health. They don't want to love you properly, but they don't want to let you go either.
The more you give the less they appreciate, and the minute you've had enough and decide to walk away is when they are ready to love u and treat you right.
So you give them a chance in the hopes they've changed only to realise it was all fake. You find the strength to walk away once more and here he comes again proclaiming his love for you and you give in, AGAIN. A man showing anger and persistence to get you back once you try to break it of isn't proof of love; its a knee jerk reaction.
A man kissing your ass or making flaccid attempts to be nicer for two weeks isn't proof that he's trying, its proof that he knows you well enough to know how to defuse you long enough to hook you once again. Take away a toy, a little boy cries.
Take away a relationship of convenience, a man cries. Just because he cries doesn't mean you give him what he wants. Stop listening to what your man keeps promising and start watching what his actions actually keep telling you.
A lot of we women don't know what its like to be loved by a real man. We know lust, we know joy, we know passion and we know the fear of abandonment. Lets stop chasing our idea of what love should be and recognise what love IS. Love isn't promising to act right after he gets caught messing up time and time again.
Love is him acting right from the start because he doesn't want to mess up. Love isn't telling our grown man he needs to change so he can keep us; love is a grown man changing on his own because he cant imagine life without his woman
A beautiful weekend to you all..
