I don’t know that I have the answer to that. I do know this though, even though you didn’t really ask it — your best plan of action is to keep working on being the best you that you can be, because first of all, that’s the only person you have any control over, and second of all, a wounded, out-of-touch-with-authentic self you is going to attract the same and that’s not who you want to be involved with. I’ve seen it time and again that as I have grown and healed it has made space for the people around me to do so also.

Wishing you all the best,
