People stay in unhealthy relationships because they found a way to love what’s not good for them.–Melvin Davis
You have received signs after signs, red flags after red flags that you’re relationship cannot and will not work, yet you to stay in it out of convenience to have familiar “intimacy” on call, and because you don’t want to go through the breakup process, you will eventually find a way to love what’s unhealthy for you. You’re lowering your standards here and your self-worth. But not only that, you giving away time you cannot get back and you’re stopping the person who really meant to be in your life. Desire to be with someone who will respect and love you unconditionally. Don’t desire what’s dysfunctional.
As you continue on in this relationship that brings you discomfort while you’re in that persons presence, and sigh deeply when they depart, ask yourself is he or she really worth it and is your worth value enough to walk away.
Don’t think you’re doing right by staying with person out of fear of ruining their world. Do what’s right for the sake of you. It’s time to stop talking to family and friends about your issues. It’s time to listen to the love you have yourself telling you to leave.
