Sometimes it’s easier to stay than to move on. Sometimes it’s easier to retreat rather than to say how you really feel. And if you do these things a lot, you’ll probably find yourself in a relationship that isn’t fulfilling and won’t give you what you need. Are they even worth your energy? Here’s how you’ll know.
They just don’t show up
You set up dates. They tell you they’ll “be there soon” but you’re left at the table, consistently getting a last minute phone call. It’s a waste of time, why are you hanging on?
It’s like talking to a brick wall
The things you say to them go in one ear out the other. And when you confront them, they tell you something entirely different or try to change the subject. It’s a waste of time, why are you hanging on?.
They give you mixed messages
On one hand, they talk about how special you are and how good you make them feel. But on the other, they always seem to be ‘busy’, and it’s so hard to fit you into their schedule. Do you see a pattern? It’s a waste of time, why are you hanging on?
You’ve outgrown them
You realize how much nonsense you’ve taken from them, and frankly, you’re angry at them. But at the same time, you’re angry at yourself for going along with it. Cut the cord. It’s a waste of time, why are you hanging on?
There’s no future with them
They’re very seductive, but in truth they’re just not ready to settle down. And subconsciously, you know it. It’s a waste of time, why are you hanging on?
