Stop saying something is wrong with your “picker” because you keep ending up with the wrong person. Focus on your “Thrower”!

However, when you don’t have boundaries, you are like a mansion that is beautiful and grand but do not have windows, doors, security or a gate. So anybody can get in and take advantage of you. People that you interact with will walk up to you (the mansion)...
