We all get involved in something like it, an unhealthy relationship.
It could be with friends, family members or a significant other. It is not easy being in it, not for the mind, the health, the will, the body, the spirit. It is also not easy to get out of it, even when sometimes, it is what your mind screams for, and yet, the heart prevails.
It is also easy to say to simply get out of it, but when you are the one in the situation, it is easier said than done. Sometimes, you think it’s your fault when it isn’t. You also come to a conclusion that you deserve to be in it when you don’t.
Here are a few tips on how you can deal and get out of it, or better yet, stay away from an unhealthy relationship:
Stay away from negative people
You know when people have nothing good to add in your life, steer clear of them. It may sound cold, but it is what it is. You should not have to deal with people sucking the energy and life out of you.
Maintain a relationship that thrives in give and take
For a relationship to work, it has to be a give and take. While you don’t expect to receive for every little thing you give, you will know when the other person is sincere because he/she doesn’t just keep taking. He/she also knows the importance of giving. However, if the only thing the other person does is take, you might as well put a mile distance between you and him/her and never look back. Your happiness and sanity, not to mention health, depend on it.
Cut the ties as soon as possible
Sometimes, you cannot know who the other person is right away but once you know the relationship is going nowhere, and it is starting to take a toll on you, let it go and cut ties. The sooner you are out of it, the better. If you leave it longer, hoping it will get better, you are making a mistake. A good healthy relationship should begin healthily; otherwise, you will only be disappointed.
Choose your company well
Surround yourself with positive and amazing people. This is one way to ensure you would have healthy relationships personally or professionally. When you know how it is to be positive, you will not tolerate negativity, and you would not have any problem getting out it either when it does happen.
Moving forward, may all your relationships be healthy and be the key to your happiness, health, and success.
