I can relate...

This is a quote from Eat Pray Love . I FEEL this quote to the core of my very soul, it is me! Or perhaps it used to be me. I'd like to say I've learned my lesson and I'm living for me now. I hope I am... but I suspect this is still very much me. Hmm.

"If I love you, I will carry for you all your pain, I will assume for you all your debts (in every definition of the word), I will protect you from your own insecurity, I will project upon you all sorts of good qualities that you have never actually cultivated in yourself and I will buy Christmas presents for your entire family. I will give you the sun and the rain, and if they are not available, I will give you a sun check and a rain check. I will give you all this and more, until I get so exhausted and depleted that the only way I can recover my energy is by becoming infatuated with someone else."
Elizabeth Gilbert
