When to Leave

November 19, 2023

 

When should you get out of your relationship? Well, the truth is, if you’re even asking yourself this question, maybe the answer is now. But that’s easier said than done.

We have fears about being alone. We have fears about making the wrong decision and having regret. We have fear because we’re not clear. So the first thing I would suggest is this: it’s time to get clear.

And to do that, you’ve got to talk it through. You have to feel into it. You can do can work with a coach, a therapist, do body work, move the energy, and discover out how you feel after some of those treatments.

There’s a saying about hiring employees that applies to relationships. It’s easier to hire than to fire. It’s easier to get into a relationship than it is to get out because of our fears, the kids, and perhaps feelings of obligation and guilt and not wanting to hurt the other.

If this topic is on your mind, I highly suggest you give it some real attention. Staying longer than you should will, in the long run, bring you a lot more pain. Think it through, do the work, and see what you come up with.
