At least once in your lifetime, you will find yourself in a couple of unhealthy relationships that you just seem to can’t let go of. As the days drag on, although you can’t take it any longer, you just can’t seem to take that first step. Maybe because, you’re still hoping that everything will still change. Or you can’t bear hurt the feelings of your lover. Whatever it is that is holding you back from getting out it, unhealthy relationships will only cause more emotional damage if not ended soon.
Unhealthy relationships can come in different forms. Most of the time it involves some form of abuse. If you think that your partner is physically or emotionally abusing you, by all means, get out of that relationship as fast as you can. If one partner is hindering the other from growing, then the relationship just isn’t healthy for both of them anymore. And once the relationship becomes unhealthy, conflict will surely arise.
Ending an unhealthy relationship starts with a conscious decision of actually ending it. You have to be determined to let it go so that you wouldn’t have to think twice about it anymore. Many people find it hard to break up with someone because they think that eventually the situation will get better again. Nothing good will come out of the procrastination. It will just hurt more.
Ending a relationship can be a difficult undertaking but it doesn’t have to be traumatic on anyone. As long as you have a clear understanding of what you want your future to be, an unhealthy relationship is the last place you would want yourself to be in.
