Love is a powerful force but at the same time, Love should not be the reason why you are enduring life when you are made to enjoy it.
Promise met Regina in the banking hall, she borrowed his pen to fill her bank slip and while returning it he asked for her name and they said their goodbyes. The universe sure wanted them to be together, they met some days later at an eatery and this time Promise insisted on paying for her meal and they exchanged contacts.
They remained good friends until Promised decided to take it a step further by asking Regina to be his girlfriend, they started dating but the only problem was when Promise was angry he couldn’t control himself and he was a jealous lover.
Each time Regina spoke to a guy even if he was a colleague or an old friend, Promise would hit her and go on to apologize. He always got her expensive gifts and because Regina was in love she decided to still go ahead with the relationship.
Some of her friends’ suspected Promise was hitting her but she would always lie. She went ahead to marry him even when her parents were against the relationship and that was how she trapped herself. Marriage was hell for her, he stopped her from working and would beat her at the slightest mistake.
When she couldn’t take it anymore, she ran out of the country and filed for a divorce.
Just like Regina, a lot of men and women endure toxic relationship all in the name of love when they deserve to be treated well. People are enduring relationships because they feel they can’t be loved but the truth is when you decide to find your worth the right person will come your way.
Here are some signs that you are in a toxic relationship and it’s time to walk away
Possessive: I understand that you can be in love and be a bit jealous but when you are dating someone who is possessive, it is very different. The person wants you to himself or herself, someone you are dating and does not want you to have friends then you need to leave that relationship because a possessive partner is a dangerous person.
Non-committer: If you are in a relationship and there is no future plan then you need to leave the relationship. A non-committer is a time waster and you need to run!
Abusive partner: When you are being abused then don’t endure the relationship! A person who abuses you can kill you. If a man or woman hits you please flee!
Infidelity: Don’t endure a cheating partner. If someone cheats on you then don’t assume they will change. People change but for how long do you want to endure pains?
You are meant to enjoy your relationship and not endure it. Stop hanging around hoping someone will change when in reality it might never happen. You deserve to be happy, there is someone out there who will love you and treat you like a queen or king that you are!
Don’t allow anyone treats you like trash, it’s time to walk away!
