Life provides turning points of many kinds, but the most powerful of all may be character-revealing moments.

I think this article is great if you are dating or in a relationship with someone who actually wants to participate and cares. But in my case I was with a liar and a thief for a year. I saw red flags and ignored them. So best thing to do for me was yes change myself, as in get out of that relationship. But to be candid the other person was completely oblivious to taking any responsibility. They were also just loving to play the victim in everything. So instead of continually feeding this persona and thinking I could actually get anything meaningful from the relarionship, I did focus on myself and why did I attract such a nut job. It was painful to accept my own responsibility but trust me, I have vowed to never let this happen again. When seeing red flags, I believe it's best to honor my truth and respond with a sense of dignity what I want out of my life. And if it's not in alignment with a healthy relationship I want, then let it go. Stop making excuses and move on. Especially because a liar trait doesn't change. They are not honoring themselves so why would they have any decency to honor the relationship? RUN.
