A Word on Toxic Relationships
Being a relationship with someone you are attracted to, can see yourself with, or that you are in love with, can be bad for your health as illustrated by the situation surrounded the Stiletto Murder Trial.
Its understandable how people may end up in these relationships, and why lovers may see the need to remain in them. At the end of the day no couple wants to see their relationship come to an end, but if the relationship is toxic then you have consider letting it go.
I myself was once in a toxic relationship which involved fights, scratchings, property damage, and that was only the half of it.
Things never got better. We were both in the relationship for all the wrong reasons.
One of those reasons was a purely sexual attraction on my part, and a need for stability on her part, but whether or not our love was either mutual, or convenient, can be debated.
That’s was the problem and if you have that issue, resolve it, or get out of the relationship as soon as possible.
