Do you find yourself always dating the “wrong people?” Are you consistently neglected, mistreated, or just plain bored? For many of us, this can feel mystifying, as if our dating lives are cursed. We chalk it up to bad luck, or worse, we feel that we’re simply not worthy of love and affection.
But the bars that imprison us within a cycle of bad relationships are often invisible. They’re made of our own bad habits, insecurities, and self-deceptions, and they keep us locked in relationship misery.
It’s time to break out.
Two things, above all else, will help you do this. The first is the realization that you are in control of your own life. No one else decides your path.
The second? You must get to know yourself. Thoroughly. Before you can have a healthy love life, you have to have a healthy—and close—relationship with yourself. After all, you can’t take control of your own life if you aren’t fully aware of the decisions you make, and why you make them.
Achieve these two feats, and you’ll suddenly find your love life getting better and better. You’ll avoid those who aren’t good for you and start going for the ones who give you joy, peace, passion, and romance on your own terms.
Sound good? If this is the life you want, you need to open your eyes to the reasons behind your choices. To help you do this, let’s take a look at these top 7 reasons why you keep finding yourself in bad relationships.
