Avoid Disappointment and Frustration in Relationship
Many years ago, I dated an alcoholic. I did not recognize the condition in the beginning, but over time it became clear as the incidents of intoxication began to add up. After each occurrence there was an apology, a request for forgiveness, and a promise it would not happen again. No matter how much I wanted the drinking to stop, it did not. No matter how much I prayed for follow-through on the endless promises to seek help, there was none. For too long I chose to believe what was promised, rather than accept the repeated negative actions as proof of what was actually true.
Over time I got so fed up with the lies, dishonesty, irresponsibility and projection of blame onto others I ended the relationship. I set a boundary against continuing to support negative, abusive and destructive behavior. I chose to remain true to the honorable values I hold dear rather than continue to enable someone with unresolved deep personal issues to mistreat me.
