It takes so much bravery to leave a toxic relationship!

A normal relationship has its ups and downs but a toxic relationship will put you in a black hole of self doubts and guilt. Leaving a toxic relationship is never easy but you have the power to get out of it anytime you choose to do so.

I cringe when I hear people say they are staying in an unhealthy relationship because of the children. You think the children are dumb? You think they don’t know how miserable you are. It is traumatic for a child to see their parents fighting all the time.

Staying in an unhealthy relationship is more harmful to the children. You are teaching your children that unhealthy relationships are normal and that is unfair! Children should grow up with the strength and emotional intelligence to know when to say enough is enough and to be able to free themselves sensibly from a situation that is not doing anyone any good.

“Staying in an unhealthy relationship that robs you of peace of mind, is not being loyal. It is choosing to hurt yourself mentally,  emotionally and sometimes physically.”- Kemi Sogunle

    Toxic relationships are mostly like a bittersweet chocolate, everyone outside that relationship believes it’s okay or should be worked on. The truth is it never gets be more of sweet memories. It demoralising, mentally tortures every now and then, until frustrating steps in and sometimes death by sucide or murder.
    How can you stop someone from beating himself or herself ? Any person beating a life partner is beating self. If external bruises can be hidden then internal ( mental illness )will surely be passed on to the children and occasional passerby’s.
