Hello everyone and welcome to today’s edition of Elcrema Sunday Love Special. Today’s topic would focus on unhealthy relationships and when to leave such a relationship.
Drama and Shawn would share their opinions.
It’s hard to exactly tell another person when to walk out on a sour relationship, because we all differ in character and personality, as well as the limits that we are willing to go. What would seem unbearable to one person may only be very tolerable to another, so it’s a bit difficult to come out and outrightly decide for a person when they should quit a sour relationship. However, I can only speak for myself and from my position.
As much as we all want to have stability and enjoy some longevity in our relationships, it’s not okay to stay in one when it’s clearly not healthy for you. What do I mean by that? If you’re in a relationship with a person who’s an incorrigible cheat, the best thing to do is walk out on it, and that’s because the longer you stay in it, the more you suffer— note that I mentioned ‘incorrigible.’ Before you slam one with that title, they would have to be a chronic cheat, meaning that they would have broken your heart time and again. In that instance, it’s not safe to be with them. Violence and disrespect of any sort are other reasons I deem big enough to walk out of any relationship, because they take away your happiness and self-worth, and that completely goes against the purpose of having a relationship in the first place.
So, for me, it’s all about happiness. Once you get to the point when you’re no longer happy and you see no hope of a change anytime soon, it’s very okay to move on from that relationship.
