Anyone that knows me well knows that I didn't have the healthiest relationship with my ex girlfriend. I was in a very bad place and crumbled under the pressure of it all. I still carry the scars of that relationship to this day. I don't like giving up on people or walking away, I hand out second chances like it's candy on Halloween. I struggle with attachment issues and push good people away because it makes me feel safe. Ultimately, it means I often attract the wrong sort and waste my time on them.
But there was one amazing lesson that my ex did teach me: don't waste your time on someone who won't give you a second of theirs.
