Sheila was already so used to not being put first that when she began to look down on herself, she didn’t know. Everyday she felt like she was not good enough and that was Jake’s fault.
She was a helper and so she did everything for him, she was the perfect girlfriend but she never saw the fact that he was just using her because she convinced herself she loved him dearly.
They were together for three years and in that time, she became a shadow of herself and the sad part was that she didn’t even know it.
Luckily for her, along came Michael the carefree fun-loving guy that she could barely stand at first, but for some weird reason, he dragged her into his world and then she woke up.
She broke things off with Jake after she became herself again and let him know that she wasn’t going to manage a relationship anymore, it was all or nothing going forward and he just couldn’t fathom it.
