Admit that you aren’t strong enough to leave. Admit that you’re willing to put up with interesting situations, and incessant discussions of the same thing without resolution.
You’re not alone.
It’s hard to end a relationship, even if it’s not working. You’ve put in all this work and you expected some sort of a payoff. A committment, a spouse, maybe just a drawer in the bedroom for your things…something. So now, you feel a little bit like you should stay and see this thing through, right? Make sure that it’s run it’s course–you owe it that (or rather you think that you do). But again, you are not alone.
I cannot say it enough. We are not supposed to have bad relationships. We are supposed to be able to avoid people who are not in the same place we are (I call the places, “Carnal, Communal or Committal”) and we are supposed to have the strength to let go of the people who show themselves unworthy of us. Now when I say unworthy, it makes sound as if it has to be a big deal. But the truth is, it doesn’t have to be a big deal. In fact, if we would pay more attention to the little things in our relationships, we might be able to avoid the big heartbreaking thing that ultimately ends this relationship, and shatters your faith in love, the opposite sex, and the ability to ever give that much to anyone else ever again.
Did someone say, “things?”
How do you assess the little things? Well, you can go through the painstaking process of talking to your friends, family and even the Twitterverse, or you can just get my book.
There’s a book about this?
Yes, and I wrote it. I wrote it to help you stop wasting your time with people that are going to break your heart and ruin your life (if only for a moment). And, guess what, I didn’t just include ONE little thing…there are TWELVE little things in this book, plus a chapter on how to end it–if that is what you decide you need to do.
You will be strong enough in no time! I promise!
Guess what I called it?
The Book of Bye! (Seriously…that’s what it is, so why not just call it that).
Look, I know the reason why you can’t say bye, and you know the reason (or reasons) why you can’t say bye. And no matter what the exact reason is, this is one moment that you can take to figure out what you need to do.
…and I will be right beside you.
