Why is it hard to walk away...

Why is it so hard to walk away from a relationship if you know you are not happy, he may be cheating, and you dont like how he does things when it comes to the kids? It always easier said than done.. and how come he always talks you into staying.. hes quicksand....

  • It's the fear of a new start. It's the fear of it being difficult. It's the fear of it being a messy break up.
    It's all fear.

    Agreed it IS always easier said than done but sometimes you just need to bite the bullet and do what is in the best interest of you and your children no matter how scary.
    There is always support out there.

    If you're worried about him talking you into staying then leave when he's not around or have extra support with you. A friend or relative...or a few.
    If you feel like you need to not be in that relationship then get out of it.

    It'll be hard at first but you'll be better off in the long run rather than living a lie and wishing you had done something sooner.
    The longer you wait, the harder it is.

  • fear and also the want to wait for change...sometimes people just become complacent. Jealousy is another reason people don't leave.
    you have to force yourself not to care.

  • Because you love him, even if he is not right for you.
