some good advice that's hit you hard?
This is from experience: No matter what you do for someone out of love, if all you keep saying is their sorry or that they're going to change, but their actions don't speak louder than their words, then SHUT them off immediately! They don't appreciate anything you do for them, and their priority will always be themselves, and that's not love. You'll never make that person love you, no matter what they yell you! A narcissist is a narcissist! The lies will never end, and sooner or later, they will completely break you down, simply because they are abusing the love you gave to them. If their priority isn't putting you first, you were never first to begin with! If a person truly loves you, they will do whatever it takes to keep you by their side. True love fights through it all and comes out on top stronger! The users and abusers quit and lie their way through to the next episode.
