People stay in bad relationships, fearing they can never find anyone else that will love and support them.
This is a common fear, but it is a false fear.
Remember that there was a time when your boyfriend was actually not in your life.
I know, it’s hard for this to come across your mind at this difficult time, but you mustn’t forget that there was a world you used to live in that didn’t have your boyfriend in it.
Remember that time?
Well, you were fine then.
You were as vivacious and unique as you were when you met him.
In other words, you were your unique self and you had good relationships with friends, colleagues and family.
You remain this person with or without your boyfriend.
True, you are upset at first.
You miss him, doubting the reasons why you decided to break up with him.
Your personality as unique as it is, shines through again.
Guess what happens when that occurs?
Someone else takes notice.
They do so just like your boyfriend did when he first met you.
The point here is that being worried that you won’t find someone else is just pointless and without warrant.
Your boyfriend is not the only one in the world who sees your dynamic personality and is open to it.
When you tell yourself that you can’t find anyone else, it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.
This is the danger of thinking in this way.
It really narrows your mindset and debilitates your sense of self-esteem.
This is how so many people stay in bad relationships that lead to a breakup anyway.
They stayed in it for too long.
By the time they have gotten out of it and the relationship is over, they are a shell of who they once were.
That dynamic personality has been extinguished.
They feel used up and betrayed.
You don’t want to be this person.
In fact, you deserve better.
When you are unhappy with your boyfriend and this has not improved regardless of how hard you have tried, it is time to end your relationship with your boyfriend.
The longer you prolong it, the harder it is to get out of.
You waste precious time working on a relationship that has no future and is mentally destructive.
I know that it is hard to make such a bold move.
Contemplate your mental state of being and your future.
Do you want to be happy?
I am sure the answer is yes.
Has your boyfriend been making you happy?
Have you tried to make this relationship work to no avail?
A yes signifies you are justified in leaving this relationship.
Recognize that your boyfriend is perfectly happy with the current state of affairs.
He tells you that he loves you from time to time.
You take this as a reason to stay.
A partner who is complacent with the relationship when you aren’t, has you losing out.
