When you fall in love, nothing else matters. Judgement and logic disappear, as if they were never there to begin with. Some people get lucky and wind up with someone who truly loves them and whom they do not need judgement and logic with. The rest of us, however, are not that lucky; we fall in love with people who use us instead of value us. People who, while telling us how special we are and how much they love us, are whispering the same sweet nothings into the ears of so many others. But when you fall in love, none of this matters. It is not what they do or what they have done. It is the fact that they know how to treat you and talk to you; they know how to make you believe that they truly love you and that you really need them. Toxic or not.
