It may be our perfections that attract one another. But it’s our imperfections that decide whether we stay together or not."
I come to realize sometimes its not the person I am madly infatuated with but merely the idea of it - the idea of us together. I become so absorbed that I perpetually create these illusional scenarios inside my head and fully worship this fantasy as something more important than myself, my values, my needs and everything else in my life. I created this sick dynamic where I feel almost difficulty in breathing oxygen because there is no other options or solutions of a way out - that it has to be this particular partner no matter what.

Sometimes the only thing that can make a relationship successful is ending it at the appropriate time, before it becomes too damaging. Despite the wonderful beginning or sweet memories in between, its crucial not only to recognize where the relationship has evolve and unravel, but mostly importantly accept for what it has become and not trying a damn thing to change or reverse the current situation. In turn, this willingness to do so will allow both to establish the necessary boundaries to help ourselves and our partner grow together.
