"Strain is when he goes behind your back, lies to your face, and harbours feelings he shouldn't be harbouring.
Strain is also when you have done the same ....and continue to do so cause you have seen all this forecoming.
Don't just say things because its a routine.
Don't say things that you don't mean.
Most importantly, don't continue on if your heart has already flown away to another nest.
Think about it. Just let go and stop dragging. Most XXs are not floats to XYs. Most XXs will not hesitate to sink you as well."
the truth's pretty brutal.
