I’d rather be single than miserable in a relationship.
Sometimes as a young person we find ourselves stuck in relationships which are not working or meant to be. We may find ourselves getting anxiety and depression from boyfriend/ girlfriend. Ask yourself, is it worth the risks? Being with someone that you do not feel secure around?
After a discussion session between me and a few friends on love, relationships, abuse most with we the youth I came to the realisation that in the society we have convinced ourselves that getting abused, depressed or anxious in a relationship only occurs with married people, but that is where we are wrong. The young ones are the most vulnerable. We go with the notion of ‘Being in Love’ doing things to please who ever we are in a relationship with. Getting mistreated, harassed, abused and all others you could think of . I remember when I said to myself I have the right to create the love life I desire. The right to allow and unallow particular kinds of people in my life.
Loneliness is something most of us don’t like.
I believe most times we wonder when we would meet the right people . But what we should remind ourself is when the right moment arrives it would be just what we desire. Besides we are still young so the best things come to those that wait. No matter what you have been through in a relationship it’s for a reason. Why stress over your relationship?
Stress, worry, sadness etc are not the meaning of relationship or love. Love is putting them first. Our emotional well-being should be our priority.
Don’t go for love when it affects your physical and emotional well-being. It isn’t worth the risk.
Why be miserable in a relationship ? When being single is a better option.
