I am just here to thank @Shila Dave mam for helping my friend out from her toxic relationship! I was so afraid that she was going into depression, but thankfully she is a like a new person now. Of course she;s not ready to get into another relationship yet, but I am sure she will get there. Guys, therapies do work. Please do not hesitate to reach out if you feel a situation is causing you too much hurt. God bless you Shila mam
