2. They stop paying attention to what has always been important. This can include being with their children. People who once cared about helping animals will forget to feed them or might kick them for example.
3. They don’t listen. And when you point this out, you are always the one with the problem.
4. They simply can’t see that they they are doing or are about to do isn’t going to end well.
