Florence Nightingale syndrome

i’ve realised why i’ve been in so many destructive relationships.

i call it ‘florence nightingale syndrome’. I don’t know if that’s a real term i picked up somewhere without realising it, but it makes sense.

it’s when you flock to people you know have problems, in the hope of ‘foxing’ them because you don’t want to deal with your own problems. they enable you to feel as if you’re correcting problems because you don’t want to deal with your own issues.
