The singer is talking about her own life. This track is actually about Cyrus being emotionally entangled in a toxic relationship. She says falling in love with this person, she still lacks the ability to move on. She just can’t seem to quit the romance and move forward with her life. This is due to her being afraid of change. So despite obviously being with someone whose words and actions are negatively affecting her self-esteem, she continues the relationship. And the intimation isn’t so much that she is doing so for love. In fact while trying to convince her partner that they should separate, she convinced him with the idea of being able to find someone that loves him better than she does.
