Day Who Knows: alcohol and love toxicity.

Alcohol and love can be toxic.

When a person says, (but their actions say):

I love you (as long as I’m pleased with you),
I am affectionate and want you to feel loved (as long as I don’t feel slighted in any way or need to punish you for something I feel you’ve done wrong),
Facts are real and static (as long as they suit my narrative),
I apologize (but wont change my behavior),

This is not love.
This is manipulation.

Know the difference.

Sometimes, your love is not enough. You cant love them enough to make them change, even if they want to. They must do the hard work themselves.

It is a fool’s errand to be broken and try to fix yourself AND another broken individual. Sometimes you just have to be selfish and say “enough.”

Loving others is vital to your health, happiness and mental well-being.

Loving others at your own expense is a recipe for constant longing, sadness, and low self worth,

Know the difference.

I'm a professional, a mom, an entrepreneur, unrepentant bibliophile, and a lover of all things in nature. Oh yeah, and I may have an unhealthy relationship with alcohol...
