Why do we stay in unhealthy relationships longer than we should?

I am a person who falls in love with everyone that I meet instantly, I decide the moment I meet a person how far I want to take it with them. I don’t have anger management issues and I have the ability to forgive and forget. I am sometimes taken for granted because of this, but what the heck, the moment was good while it lasted. I literally can block out and forget a memory if it hurts me too much. I have learnt to let go. It doesn’t matter who you are, I genuinely love the world and people around me. I am the type of person who cries happy tears when she sees someone immensely happy. If you are happy and smiling, I’d probably smile too.

Life hasn’t been easy for most of us. By the time we are ready for a steady and strong relationship, we have been through far too much already. We are strong and willing to fight for what we believe in. Don’t get me wrong, teenage love might have worked for some of you, it worked for me as well, but other people might not have experienced the bliss of love at that age. We might have made mistakes, some we have learnt from and others we regret to date.

We stay in unhealthy relationships because of the traumatic things we have experienced in our lives. It is because we believe in change while the other person might not want to change at all. Life is a cycle and what goes around sure does come around, well eventually. Do you remember the time when you didn’t know how to love? Then something happened which changed you forever. Maybe we might be that change for some people. Maybe when we finally give up, they will fall down so bad that they too will learn to love. *Continue reading on the next page*
