  • When you dread seeing, speaking, thinking of that person. When the only emotion you feel toward them is apathy, misery or hate. When you have tried what you could to salvage it and know it wasn't enough.

    Or the first time they lay a hand on you or verbally abuse you.

  • When any of those things you are clinging to make you less than what you are. When walking away from them makes you more than what you have been with them.
