I received an interesting response to my recent article “Having the Confidence to Get Out of a Bad Relationship“: I know it’s really hard to get out of a troubling relationship, I waited for months before manning up and finishing it once and for all. I think it all comes down to lack of self respect and doubting you’ll get back on your feet after the breakup. It’s true. Many people are scared of being alone, scared they will never find anyone better – or anyone else for that matter – and are willing to settle. But you will recover and chances are very high you will meet someone else. Realistically, a few of you will end up alone, but most of you will meet someone and get married. So suck it up and get out of a failing relationship and go find someone who makes you happy… even if that means you being happy by yourself for a little while.
