There comes a time when a person gets tired of accepting substandard treatment. There is a point when they finally come to terms with what is wrong, or what had been missing and they move on. Like actually move on.
To those who have treated the above referenced people poorly, don’t expect forgiveness to come as easily as it once did. Love and trust is earned. It isn’t something you are entitled to. There’s a reason the saying the straw that broke the camel’s back is so popular. It’s true. Even the strongest can only take so much. Once you’ve dealt the last straw… A bandaid won’t fix that camel’s broken back.
Let’s just be real. If you plan on trying to fix something that is so badly broken, leave the bandaid at home and bring a surgical team with you. Even that might be a losing battle so be prepared.
