People who say they love you then play with your emotions out of spite never loved you.
I went through a rather difficult time a few years back when friends who claimed to love me did some very mean things to me.
It took a while for me to figure out it wasn’t that I was gullible. It was that they were angry that the control they had on me had been severed by my actions. I changed the status quo and they didn’t like it.
People who hurt others intentionally are broken humans who want others to hurt with them. Loved doesn’t work that way.
Remove yourself from their reach. Don’t allow them to hurt you.
