Q: Allana, I can not seem to escape this cycle of a toxic relationship that I’m in. We break up, he calls, I go running back. We break up, I call, he comes running back. We can’t see to quit each other but we are terrible together. We fight, mostly words, but I did slap him once. We are just so wrong for each but in the moments we are together, it feels right.
