What to Do When Your Relationship Ends

Posted in: ,

By Stephanie Manley

Relationships as you know are hard work, and typically most of us spend a great deal of our time and energy invested in a relationship. This makes it difficult when a relationship breaks apart. Whether this breaks apart due circumstances or even personal conflicts. Bad relationships are even more difficult when they break apart because all of that time and energy is spent there.

Often growing past a relationship means taking an inventory of what brough you into this relationship, and what brought you out of the relationship. Relationships with people that are toxic are more difficult in doing this inventory of what went wrong. When we are involved with someone that is toxic we often change what our natural ways of reacting are in relation to that other person.

So what do you do? Honestly, the best thing you can do is to forgive yourself, chances are you were doing the best that you could, and you made your decisions to stay within that relationship maybe longer than you should have. Forgiveness doesn't need to involve that other person, you really never need to interact with someone that is toxic again, you simply much move forward with yourself.

Forgive yourself often, and for each thing you thought might have led you into that particular relationship. This is the only way you can ever really move past a bad relationship in your life. Simply forgive yourself and move forward and ontward into better relationships in the future.
