When a toxic person can no longer control you, they will try to control how others see you. The misinformation will feel unfair, but stay above it, trusting that other people will eventually see the truth, just like you did.
And I'm done trying. there won't be a relationship and frankly I don't care to have one. I have tried and you have continually shown your true self. When one gets pushed to their limit it is not a good thing.
