It’s important that we all know ourselves well enough to know what are deal breakers for us–and what we consider workable behavior is, because treating deal breaker behavior like it’s workable behavior is how (and one of the main reasons as to why) people stay in abusive relationships. There is a difference between commitment and codependency. It’s okay (and healthy) to not be dragged through hell by another person’s behavior, and to get yourself to both a physical and emotional place where you can stay safe and sane.
What are your deal breakers? …And what are your deal makers?

My goal is to educate, empower, and inspire other abuse victims in understanding more about what happened to them (and how to prevent it from happening again), as well as how to go on and rebuild an amazing life.
Even though I have had a lot of "in the trenches" experience with highly manipulative people of all kinds, I consider myself to be a student of Narcissism, mindset, motivation, healing, and life in general, and am by no means an expert on any of these topics.
It's for these reasons, that when you are reading my information that I encourage you to hold to what helps, and let the rest go.
