So many of us stay in relationships, that make us feel miserable. But why? Why do we stay together, even if we’re not happy?
I’ve been with my partner for a couple of years. And, no, I am not happy with him. I mean he’s a nice guy and all, but I just feel there has to be more – like excitement and passion. We do not have that. So why am I still with him? I will give you my reasons…
I am afraid I might end up alone - I think this is the main reason I can’t leave him. I just don’t want to end up alone. Whether it's because of lack of self-confidence or I've forgotten what it's like to start dating again... but the main thing is fear. And fear will probably never let me leave him.
Guilt - It may be stupid, but even the thought of leaving him makes me feel guilty. I might not love him the way I used to, but I don’t think I will ever stop caring about him. And I am so not going to break his heart, no matter what.
Hope - Yes, I am naive, but I still hope he will change and turn into this spontaneous, adventurous and passionate hero from the movies.
Now you probably think I am a pathetic little crybaby, who doesn’t even know what she wants. And you’re probably right :) I will keep you posted on what happens next ;)
I love talking about myself ;)
