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. We just can’t walk away – how do I finally walk away?
A: From the time we are children, we have a tendency to associate love with an unhealthy dynamic. Whether it was from a mother, father, sibling, or someone significant – we evolve that characteristic into a necessary trait when we are looking for our beloved as adults.
