This afternoon, as I’m perusing Facebook looking for great content to repost, I come across an article from Bolde.com titled “I Finally Figured Out Why So Many Toxic Men Were Drawn To Me”.
I wasn’t a fan of the profanity, but the points were spot on!
1. I WAS TOO NICE.
2. I GAVE THE BENEFIT OF THE DOUBT.
3. I WAS THEIR HOPE OF CHANGE.
4. I WAS A FIXER.
5. I AM TOO EMPATHETIC.
6. I HAD GIVEN UP ON LOVE.
7. I DIDN’T HAVE HEALTHY BOUNDARIES.
8. I WAS A GOOD LISTENER.
9. I WAS TOO LAID-BACK AND EASYGOING.
10. I DIDN’T VALUE MYSELF.
11. I STAYED IN SITUATIONS LONGER THAN NECESSARY.
I won’t take time going through the details, but I will say that this article speaks to my mindset in my late teens – early twenties! EVERY LAST POINT! I don’t know what’s wilder — the fact that there is someone out here who could put a “name” to my mindset, or the fact that someone just described my little dating life to a tee — either way, this is good!
