I remember feeling like this ... When we are in toxic, dysfunctional, and abusive environments ... we lose ourselves, our freedom, and our inner peace. If you lose you in order to stay in the relationship, it's not worth it.
Never underestimate the importance of having a person in your life who can make you smile. l I never take for granted the fact that you are part of my life AND that you can always make me smile. Love you!
