Why it’s so easy to get sucked into a toxic, abusive relationship

That charming person you fall in love with could be a narcissist, a sociopath, or even a psychopath, or they might just have traits and not even be fully diagnosable.

They can appear to be very seductive and charming and superficial in the beginning when everything seems wonderful. You think you've met prince charming and all of a sudden you realise, you know, later on down the road, I always like to say, it's not prince charming. It's prince harming or the prince you fell in love with is harming, as you realise, you're being controlled, you're being manipulated, you're being gas lit……..

Why we continue to accept this behaviour, and why we continue to do so.
