I cannot understand why my cousin has such a tough time in the area of relationships...and it's just not romantic! Please help me understand so I can relate to her better. I feel like I'm just barking at her and that's not really right. I try to be supportive but I feel the anger bubbling up inside of me and I want to punch the person who is hurting her in the face.
She thinks everyone and every situation has hope. It appears to me that even though a person has hurt her she is willing to push that aside and continue to hope they will change. I don't know if she really believes what some of these guys tell her or if she is just trying to keep hope alive. I can see the bastard coming from a mile away-I tell her not to get involved but she never listens. She'll tell me that he is really sincere this time, no no it's going to be different and it never is. I know she wants a lifelong relationship and there's nothing wrong with that...but the men that she comes across see her as a mark and they take advantage of her every time. She has a heart of gold and it really makes me mad (at her and the offending person) to see her get taken advantage in the manner in which she does.
I don't know if this an ISFJ thing, but I figured I would start here.
Please help me understand things from her point of view...
