Why we stay in toxic and unhealthy relationships even when we know they're bad for us.
If you've ever been in a relationship that made you super unhappy and stressed, then you know what it's like to feel so emotionally drained that you just don't know what you can do to make things change. There's nothing worse than not being able to figure out where things went wrong or how to fix it. There's no question that toxic relationships can have a negative affect on our lives (especially when there are kids involved) but knowing how to put an end to things is a battle in and of itself.
Hearing host Dr. Tammy Nelson discuss the biggest reasons why people stay in relationships that are toxic and unhealthy with Imago Institute's Harville Hendrix and Helen LaKelly Hunt, Psychotherapist Dr. Jamie Turndorf, Spiritual Psychotherapist Tracy B. Richards and Psychotherapist Ross Rosenberg puts everything into perspective. Listening to all of the reasons they mention in the video makes us wonder:
1. Is love really enough of a reason to deal with the stress and anxiety that comes with a bad relationship?
2. How do you know when you should fight to make things work and when to throw in the towel?
If you've ever found yourself in a situation like this, do yourself a favor and take their advice. With a little help, you can break out of this rut.
