A black eye hiding behind dark sunglasses is almost always a sure sign of a physically abusive relationship, but what happens when the abuse is verbal and comes in the form of control? Just because you aren't getting hit doesn't mean you aren't getting abused.
ENDING A RELATIONSHIP
It's easy for us to identify issues in our partners and seemingly difficult to pinpoint them in ourselves... even though we claim the problem is us! For lasting partnerships, the focus needs to shift away from how to "fix" the other person and towards a broader view of how to repair the relationship.
When the romance in the relationship is gone but both partners still care for each other's happiness and well-being, it is important to make the best decisions regarding divorce, especially when kids are involved.

It’s been a rough month for Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy, Britney Spears and Jason Trawick and Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez. All three of these celebrity couples have announced that they’re breaking up. Making the decision to end a love relationship or marriage is usually not made on impulse. It’s rare for a person to be madly in love one day and ready to pack up and leave the next. Usually, it’s something that’s been building for quite awhile.
WOW! That really hurts. When you have great expectations of a long term relationship and lasting love, you feel good about yourself and confident in the future. Then you get the dreaded Dear John/Jane letter or the pink slip at work and immediately go from the heights of excitement to the depths of disappointment. Being dumped can change your life and confidence in an instant.
Despite divorce being so common, many couples are caught off guard when it actually happens to them. They believe that if they just begin to love one another again, everything will turn out fine.

What the heck does “We are taking a break in our relationship” really mean? So many people are doing it today & how do they get away with it? It is the same as having your cake & eating it too ~ you may as well cut off a big piece & spoon feed it to them!
Divorce is always good for women, if not right away, then eventually. I say this because women typically do not divorce on a whim, they do so after years sacrificing their wants and needs for the benefit of others, until they finally learn that unhappiness is not par for the course. Women take unhappiness more seriously than men because unhappiness takes a bigger toll on us.
Although you and your BFF have been friends for what seems like forever, you can't help but notice that she's been bringing you down lately. She's unsupportive of you and your life choices, unnecessarily mean or hurtful, and is no longer giving you the kind of friendship that you want. So, how do you "break up" with her? 12 Types Of Friends You Should Break Up With
Love is the most powerful emotion a human being can feel. It is an antecedent to a plethora of emotions stemming from wonder to despair. When relationships end, the person left behind will always wonder to themselves, “Didn’t I once know you?” especially if their heart was shattered.
"If someone can walk away from you, let them walk." The bulk of us have heard this statement before, and it is almost always in reference to the disintegration and subsequent break up of a relationship. You are generally told this when the relationship is ending by the choice and decision of someone other than yourself. Hearing that if someone can walk away from you that you should let them is not much comfort when it is the person that you love who is choosing to do the walking.
