Do You Stay When You Should Leave?

4 years ago

bad relationship I'm willing to bet that most women have been in this type of situation at some point in their life.  The scenario of knowing you no longer belong in a relationship with that person, yet not being able to make the decision to leave.  I will admit, it's happen to me several times.  I've known many women who have experienced this as well.  The reasons are many: been together too long, staying for the children, not financially stable enough to leave, don't want to be alone, change is scary, too much effort to move out, can't face actually telling him, it will upset the whole family, what will your friends think... and the list goes on.  The unfortunate thing is, once you know that you don't belong in it, you can't fool yourself deep down inside.  You end up caving yourself in because YOU KNOW that it's no longer right.  All those reasons are just excuses not to face the situation and move on.  There is always a solution to the problem, you just have to be willing to do it!  Your integrity to yourself is more important than anything else BECAUSE as long as you don't think its' right, it doesn't matter what anyone else thinks (they don't have to live in your head!)  You're the one that has to deal with the thoughts and feelings every day that you know you need to make a decision and make a move.  Until you do that, your life will remain in limbo and that's enough to drive anyone nuts!  Plus it affects every area of your life and puts a big huge stop to your goals because you are up and down and all over the place in your mind.  That means harder to focus, more emotional, uncertain, etc.  That's why you need to push yourself, to make the right decision for yourself, which contributes to the best you, which contributes to improved areas in your life, which leads you to achieving your goals and becoming happier than you were before!
