Just wondering if anyone see's this issue in themselves
The last two relationships I've had lasted through bad behavior and I didn't leave until my family was insulted or it affected them. NO matter I was allowing myself to be taken for granted (and realized it, but denied it), but when my children or grandchildren were disregarded or not treated well, that was when my brain kicked in and said enough.
I wonder why I didn't leave before that happened? Why would I take bad behavior, and only act when it was spilling over to my family? This latest time, no one in my family had to experience it - what occurred was only known to me.
