Is it masochistic... or a coping mechanism?
It's when you grow attached to the very people who are abusing you, and I think I've got a bad case of it.
I am finding myself becoming attached to the same folks who have, in the past, been very mean to me at work.
Does it mean they're wearing me down? Does it mean they're becoming nicer? Does it mean I'm a sucker?
How have I come to accept (and even become fond of) the same people who make me cry?
