Love brings out the best in us. But watch out, because it can unleash the martyr in you too.
As Valentine’s Day rolls in, couples are readying plans to celebrate. Meanwhile, singles are still joining the fun because you can spend it with friends or family too! As for all the martyrs out there, why not try loving yourself this year!
You are brave for fighting for love. But ask yourself, is it worth the suffering? If these songs are right, then maybe it is time to walk away.
