Being in an abusive relationship of any kind, especially where you have a dependency on the abuser for one reason or another, leaves you in a tough spot.
Can you leave and still be okay, or are you so dependent that leaving will put you in a worse situation? This is a tough position to be in, so what do you do? I talk about this in segment 1.
For segment 2, sometimes you reach the limits of practicality and have to explore deeper, alternative forms of emotional or physical pain control. You may even step into things a bit outside your belief system. After all, once you open your mind to being open to anything, opportunities present themselves.
During the close of the show, I ask the question about when someone desperately wants you back, is it a good decision to take them back?
“You complete me” is sometimes laughed about as a quote from a movie, but some take it seriously and believe they actually do need someone to complete them. Is that healthy? Maybe not so much.
