- You’re not with him out of love, you’re with him out of habit.
You know it’s very hard to get rid of bad habits, but staying in a toxic relationship is the worst thing you can do to yourself.
When you think twice, you will realize that you are not with your man because you love him but because you need him.
You think you will be powerless without him and that no one else will love you like this, all broken and emotionally scarred.
What you don’t know is that staying in that kind of atmosphere will be more painful than getting rid of someone who is no good for you anyway.
- You still think things will get better
You see, this happens because you’re in a long relationship and you think that you both had bigger problems and that you’ll get over this one too.
But you don’t see that this is not just a problem, but a state in which you are totally losing yourself.
If you keep doing this, you will end up with no self-esteem and go into depression for not saving yourself in time.
- You don’t want another woman to get what you did from your partner.
When two people are in a long-term relationship, there are some things they both learn. Even if they are just little things, they mean a lot.
You probably taught your man to put the dirty clothes in the hamper or wash the dishes after eating.
Before he met you, he didn’t know that and you don’t want another woman to benefit from your hard work.
But please think twice because he is not worth staying with, he will never be the man of your dreams.
- You don’t want to let go of all those happy times together
Your relationship had good but also some bad days. Since you are still blinded by love, you totally ignore all those bad things and only think about the good ones.
That’s why you don’t want to let go of all those happy moments you two shared.
You don’t want to forget those moments when he wasn’t toxic to you.
You want to live in the belief that he will change and that he will love you the way you deserve.
- Sometimes he shows that he loves you
But you better watch out because this is a trap: he does it when he sees that you might leave him.
It’s a way of controlling you by telling you that he is guilty of some things but that he is willing to change for you and your love.
He will use all kinds of tricks to convince you that your place is with him and that no one will love you like him.
- You are afraid to live without him
Since you two had a long relationship, you have no idea what your life will be like after you leave him.
So you feel much safer being with him, even if he is toxic and you know it.
You were in that relationship too long and you no longer know how to behave in public without him.
As strange as this sounds, it happens to many women in toxic relationships.
