When we lead ourselves to believe our illusions, we can find ourselves trapped in an unrealistic perception of life. These illusions are attempts to distract ourselves from the reality that we are not satisfied with life.

We have all at one point or another have been the person to sabotage a relationship, or on the receiving end of it–and we know that it doesn 't feel good.
