I tried to move her down a path that would be beneficial to her without making assumptions about what was best for her.I didn’t suffer in my helping her: no part of my life was neglected.However, it was clear to me that Malissa had self-destructive tendencies that stemmed from low self-esteem and a general lack of self-worth.

It’s an affliction where you have the need to rescue others, specifically your romantic partner.According to this book, you suffer from white knight syndrome if “you care for their partners at the expense of your own needs, encounter abusive or self-destructive behavior in their partners, or try to control and make decisions for their partners.” Now, I am not a controlling person. I never did that when I was dealing with Malissa (you know, the one that got away). Rather, I tried to help her make decisions that were right for her.
After a heavy night of drinking he confessed that he was scared to get into another relationship because he associates them with pain and feeling trapped. It dawned on me that he probably had one foot out the door the entire time.
