We’re only human, and sometimes we make mistakes. It’s consistent behavior that conveys how someone really feels. You might convince yourself that this person is just misunderstood, and that no one else wants to give them the compassion and support you’re willing to offer. It’s great to be compassionate, but we need to be compassionate with ourselves first—and that means acknowledging what’s just not okay.
So, how do we know when to stop? At some point, you have to realize that if it’s not working, it’s not going to work.vEnding something that’s not working can be extremely liberating, and if you know deep down that it’s inevitable, you may as well step up to the plate right away. It’s just always the easiest thing to deal with and cope with. Life is filled with challenges, relationships and shortcomings. The Mary’s faced adversity of change. If you know deep down that you’re not right together, then your relationship is over. The issue is are you asking the right questions.
