We don't ever want to be treated like sh*t; we want to have partners who are good for us, and we want to have healthy relationships. Soon, all of your friends hate the guy you're dating and you're constantly complaining about him. Once you're in a relationship, it isn't easy to just let go and walk away. The entire human population just doesn't know him like I do.10. This person has trapped you in his web, and your infatuation makes you want to hold on with all your might. He might have bad manners, but he wasn't raised like I was.11. I don’t want to hang out when he’s around because I can’t stand to watch how he treats her and I don’t want to have conversations with her about it anymore because she keeps putting up with it and there’s not much more I can say to her about it.She deserves so much better, but how do I get her to see that and leave this jerk?
It's like you're wearing assh*le goggles, and only you can't see what a nightmare your boyfriend is. Eventually, you'll have too much of his abuse and constant bullsh*t, and you'll dump him out onto the cold, hard street. But for now, here are 47 lies every girl tells herself when she's dating an assh*le.
Dear Alisa, My best friend’s boyfriend is a total douchebag!
He treats her horribly and he is verbally and emotionally abusive to her, she totally knows this, but is so in love with him that she won’t leave him.
The most loving thing we can do for anyone is to just be present with them during their struggles, not trying to change anything or get them to see our perspective, but to be right next to them with an open and empathetic heart.
Holding space for them is the most powerful thing we can do to support their growth and finding their own desire for change, eliminating any judgement that arises in you regarding it.
