“Every time you’re with another woman, you abandon you,” Vanzant told Maxiell on the episode that aired last week. “And every time you tell another lie, you abandon you. And every time you take a drink to stuff the pain down, you abandon you. This wasn’t about sex. This was about punishment.”
I'm not sure what "you abandon you" means in this context. The close definition in the dictionary for abandon I got is:
- verb If you abandon yourself to an emotion, you think about it a lot and feel it strongly, especially when other people might think you are wrong to do so.
But I'm still not clear how it can fit for the context.
What does it truly mean here?
