Trying to heal from being disappointed far too many times? Read 26 Ways To Take Your Life Back When You’re Broken
4. End the cycle.
Once you have told someone how you feel and how their actions have affected you, it’s time to let go of the hurt. End the cycle of expectation, disappointment, and pain. This is when you set boundaries and make it clear that your relationship requires equal effort. If they oblige, then the relationship can happily be maintained. However, if the dynamic changes too much for them and they decide they can’t handle compromise, then you now know the friendship/relationship was forced and needing to end anyways.
When you choose to stop letting the behaviour of others affect your life, you will see that ending the cycle of pain contributes heavily to your happiness.
5. Know when to move on.
After you have explained your feelings and given the other person time to examine how their behaviour affects others, reevaluate your relationship. If nothing has changed, then it is time to move on.
Trying to maintain a relationship that only causes negative feelings doesn’t benefit either party. Life is hard enough without trying to force friendships/relationships. Someone who truly wants to improve their relationship with you will appreciate the forward honesty. A real friend is someone who will work with you to tackle the difficult topics and resolve conflicts.
We are never in total control of how people act, but if we set boundaries in our relationships, we can (at least partially) control how people treat us.
