Why sometimes we’re inclined to stay in an unhealthy relationship for too long?

Updated: Jan 11, 2019



‘Why sometimes we’re inclined to stay in an unhealthy relationship for too long.’

It can be you’ve become accustomed to a lack of love, care & attention, but you’re willing to wait and live in hope, which, in turn can make you try even harder to please, or make you feel more de-valued and unhappy! For some, they’re ready to accept more than 50% of the blame for an unhealthy relationship, often because their partner tells them this is the case and they believe it..... but that’s a whole new post (have I talked to you about narcissists?) Sometimes the fear of abandonment is too scary so you singularly graft doubly hard to stop the relationship dissolving. Maybe your self-esteem is low and you genuinely believe you’re not meant to be happy? For some, they’re more in touch with a dream of how it could be rather than face the reality of their situation. And finally.... some people are simply just not attracted to a loving, gentle, caring partner, preferring instead the uncertainty of a dangerous and unpredictable one. (If that’s you, I probably can’t help you, but if you’re any of the others then book in to see me! ) Signing off peeps... M x
