You need to be willing to live every day of your life with the I don’t need Halloween I’m a witch all year shirt, that the person who you love so unconditionally so deeply, so intensely, is not capable of loving you, respecting you, or caring for you at all, not even with all of their expectations being met. You need to be willing to accept the fact that the harder you try to please them, the more they despise you. You should be willing to have your bank account emptied, your home foreclosed on and your car repossessed, resulting in you sleeping on the street, while they are sleeping in someone else’s warm comfortable bed.
