Guilt is something that eats at me from the inside out. When an abuser knows your weaknesses, they'll play on it so to be sure they destroy the parts of you that they are intimidated by! Flip 'em the ol' bird and flick it off like a booger!
❤️ Don't ever feel bad for making a decision about your own life that upsets other people. You are not responsible for their happiness. You're responsible for your own happiness. Anyone who wants you to live in misery for their happiness should not be in your life to begin with ☀️
Stand strong, avoid the games, don't fall for the guilt trips. She may try to be a master manipulator but you are stronger than that, plus once you decided that you are no longer interested in wasting any more time on such a crappy relationship the bullshit ceased to be affective any more. (and that's such a good thing!)
