O/T - Question about toxic relationships
Okay, over time I have finally come to realize that I myself am in a toxic relationship with my DH. This is hard to admit because I love him and I wanted things to work but I'm starting to realize that I don't think it will. I actually have a few questions:
1) Can people really change if they have some narc traits? Are they capable of changing?
2) How can you leave someone that doesn't want to leave? I mean I know you just do it but are there any tips on how to make it less dramatic and painful?
3) Does counseling even work for marriages? Is it worth it? If I'm the one that is ready to call it quits should I even bother with counseling first?
Any advise/experience is appreciated. The good the bad the ugly. I'll take it...and I know that I am not perfect either but I am tired of living this way. It is exhausting.
