Fabulous article!! So many truths.
I’m the one who prefers to leave rather than stay in and unhealthy relationship. I’ve finally discovered it’s better to be alone than to put up with a man who makes me feel “less than". Ain’t got time for that anymore. I raised my kids mostly by myself for this reason, and he turned out pretty good, despite not having a father on the premises for most of his growing-up years.
Peace of mind is better any day than the drama of a crappy, unhappy relationship.
