Love is the condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own. That means that you cannot make someone else happy if you’re not happy yourself. If you know you need to break off a relationship, but you just don’t want to ‘start over’, you may wanna reconsider that decision. A person will only do what you allow them to. They can only get your attention if you give it to them. Not only can holding onto dead weight be draining, it can also distort your vision of what a healthy relationship is. Never stay in a toxic relationship just because you have ‘history.’ Remember history repeats itself. Learn to love from a distance.
