I have always viewed dating as a prerequisite to marriage. So, when I was in a relationship, I found it very hard to leave, after deciding it wasn’t something that I wanted for the rest of my life. I’m sure many people have been in the same boat. You don’t know how to end it, so you stick around and eventually start cheating. Somehow, the cheating, though very messy, makes it easier for you to leave, and then you make your escape.
I went through that same pattern several times throughout my life, until I met that one guy. He liked me so much that I felt obligated to give him a shot. From day one it was a mistake. He was so into the idea of finally being with me, but he wasn’t paying any attention to me. After a series of terrible experiences, and one trip to the hospital, I broke it off. I didn’t need another man to ease the breakup. I didn’t need a friend to tell me that he was no good for me. I got the message loud and clear. If I stayed, I would forever be miserable and maybe even end up dead.
If you are in an abusive relationship, whether it is physical, verbal, mental/emotional, etc. I encourage you to GET OUT NOW! You are worth more and you deserve more. Love yourself enough to understand that there is someone waiting to sweep you off your feet and show you what real love is.
When I left, I wrote a song about moving on and getting what I really wanted in a man. Listen to the song below, and let me know what you think.
Have you ever been with the absolute wrong guy? What made you give him a chance?
