WHY DO WE RETURN TO TOXIC RELATIONSHIPS?
We are lonely and we fear that we won't be able to find anyone
We don't want to lose the investment we did for the relationship for years
We don't want to give up on the "romantized" idea of the relationship
We don't feel like coming out of a routine, even though if it's with a toxic person
We feel empathetic and responsible for their pain
We don't believe that we can do better
