Some people rely heavily on others for their happiness.  They invest a lot into their relationships and sometimes put themselves in a position where they become vulnerable.  Some people entire life revolve around their partners, they make them the center of their universe; they love them more than life itself.  This is a rather unhealthy and sometimes dangerous situation for when a relationship goes sour, these are the people who have difficulty coping.  Some even contemplate suicide at the prospect of having to live without their partner if a relationship ends.

It is good and healthy to love someone, however it is very important for you to love yourself also.  Never rely on someone else to see to your happiness because you may be setting yourself up for disappointment.  Don’t allow yourself to get so wrapped up in someone else that life becomes meaningless without them.  Don’t ever contemplate taking your life because the man or woman you are with decides they don’t want to be with you anymore, because the only loser will be you.  When you end your life they will continue to live theirs.  Their life is not going to end just because you are no longer around!

Broken relationships can result in a lot of heartache and pain but it wont last forever.  When one door closes another one opens.  Keep a positive mind and who knows someone better will come along.  Life is precious so try and live it to the fullest.

  1. This matter RELATIONSHIP… it sometimes seems a mistery to me..even thought it really is not… Relationships, can be made sweet as well as sour.. Great post..!!

  2. The right relationship can build you to unimaginable heights but a bad relationship can cripple you in minutes. Nobody knows what the right balance is for relationships….

  3. the best loving relationship is where each is their own person, and they together are a couple who engage in conversation with one another as friends. Thank you,this is a great article, well written. 🙂

  4. couldn’t agree more!
    i think a healthy relationship will provide a room to grow to be the best partner for each other, but not blindly sacrifice him/herself for the sake of love.

  5. I think it’s all too easy to mistake lust and/or infatuation for love; and you become so utterly tied up in that person, you forget who you are. I did this SO many times, and it took a lot of bad relationships and heartache to break that pattern.

    Having BPD… I’m so prone to leaning on other people, dependent on them for my own survival. Since taking medication I’ve been able to focus a little more and stop myself relying on a relationship for my own safety. It’s such an easy habit to get into, but so hard to break. Thanks so much for this post; very wise words.

    1. Thank you very much for taking the time to read the article and for your comment. Reading a news article where a 25 year old nurse committed suicide after having some love issues with her partner prompted me to write it. I felt it was tragic that she didn’t love herself enough to get on with her life.
