But, how do you know you’re in a bad relationship?

  • He is physically or emotionally abusive.
  • You don’t like who you are when you’re with him.
  • You feel like you’re suffocating.
  • You are lonelier when you’re with him than you are when you’re alone.
  • He is possessive of you in an unhealthy way.
  • He doesn’t celebrate your accomplishments but would rather one-up you instead.
  • He puts you down when you’re with other people and makes you feel like an idiot.
  • You’re afraid that he will get mad at you when you talk to or hang out with your friends, so you feel like you have to lie.
  • He checks your phone because he is convinced that you are cheating—but you aren’t.
  • You can’t remember the last time you smiled.
  • You stop wanting to be your best self.
  • You stop putting energy into your appearance (i.e., shaving, makeup) not because you feel comfortable but because you don’t care.
  • You are making excuses for him.
  • You feel like you are settling for less than you deserve.
  • You don’t want to touch him.
  • You make excuses as to why you can’t have sex or even kiss, right now.
  • Everything and everyone else is more important than spending time with him.

It’s time to end it.




The sooner you do, the sooner you will smile again, that’s a promise. It’s a little bit like exercising when you so don’t want to. One more day of exercising is one less day of being overweight and is one day closer to reaching your goal.

The same situation applies with separations: one less day of being together is one day closer to being happy.

Because love isn’t enough. It’s not worth your happiness. It’s not worth your health. It’s not worth your core values. You deserve more. And you will find more if you release yourself from this relationship.
