There’s so much pressure to “see the good” in people that we are learning to slowly distrust ourselves. We press past our own instincts because we have been told it’s the “right” thing to do, even when it continues to cause pain + keeps us stuck.
Yes, we need to look for others strengths, but this doesn’t mean we ignore everything else. Like the parts that need healing. The areas that cause harm. The experiences that are denied + buried + lied about.
Friend, give yourself permission to love someone fully, even if that means taking some space + time away. You don’t have to bear the entire burden of making any relationship work.
