“He loves me, he loves me not”. “He loves me, he loves me not”. “He…I don’t know anymore” is essentially what happens when the bad outweighs the good in a relationship. There’s confusion in the midst. You know your partner cheats on you, but you willingly stay in the relationship. You may suffer physical or emotional abuse but you’ve convinced yourself that they really loves you. Promise after promise is left unfulfilled and yet you still stay griping the safety rail’s of the coaster until you crash and burn from all the damage your dysfunctional relationship.
The emotions you have regarding your partner and relationship- the guilt about breaking up your family if you leave or disappointing people who think you and your partner are perfect; fear that your partner will physically or emotionally harm you as revenge for leaving or hope that your love can work “this time”-all these force you to be indecisive about finally ending your dysfunctional relationship.
