I finally realized exactly what it is I enjoy doing. I want to help people not be mentally or emotionally dependent on others. Eventually, physically too. I’m working on that. I’ve been there. I’m healing from that. Not fun. Especially, when that person you’re dependent on is toxic. And not just in romantic relationships. Relationships with family, friends, co-workers, bosses, etc. I want to help people rely on themselves. To listen to their intuition. Not be antisocial, but not NEED others to function. My behavior was dependent on how others behaved. If they weren’t giving me love, I changed the way I behaved so that I would be loved instead of being myself. So I was being controlled. I let go of my power. I see that with a lot of people. We don’t say or do things because maybe someone might not love us anymore. And that is not freedom. When we don’t NEED others for love, we can be free. And we can also let go of toxic people in our lives.
