Do not allow him to consume you, it is the consumption that will kill your soul, that will destroy your self respect, that will take you when you are not looking. Sometimes love attacks you in ways you least expect it, and the person who said that love is not a destructive thing lied to you; love can be a terribly destructive thing, only if you let it. If he does not call, go to sleep. If he does not message you, put your phone away and have a good day anyway. If he tries to teach you a lesson through the silent treatment, ignore him completely. Do not allow him to take your attention completely away from anything that was in your life before him, whether it is family, your friends, and the things that you love. Do not allow anyone to emotionally manipulate you in any way, shape, or form. Recognize the signs. Someone who loves you will make mistakes, but they will respect you. They will always respect you. If he plays with your feelings constantly walk away from him. If he act like your body is his entitlement when you are not ready, walk away from him. If he forbids you from doing anything you love, walk away from him. If he tries to suggest he should always be the most important thing in your life, walk away from him. I cannot stress them enough, you live for yourself first. He is a secondary character in the story of your life. Do not allow him to turn you into a secondary character in your own book.
