  • Why the Break?

A good relationship is prone to its own share of fights and misunderstandings. But breaking up or taking a break from each other very often shows you both aren’t fully committed to this relationship in the first place. Breaking up often can make you lose self-esteem and draw negative emotions in your mind about life, love and other things even when things are going great. You’ve started overthinking everything and anything to compensate and avoid thinking about your partner. Constant switching between hate and love can ruin your trust, faith, and self-esteem.

Advice: You need to sit down and communicate why you both are always trying to break away from each other for petty reasons. If this fails to work, wish them all the luck and cut things off completely. Tell everyone, make it public. This will motivate you to stick to your decision once everyone knows you’ve broken up for good.

  • Physical Effects

You’ve started ignoring your physical health for the sake of appeasing your partner mentally. You probably have picked on some form of mild disorders that pop out whenever you’re reminded of them in a bad way or bad memories. Nail biting, insomnia, body aches, headaches, oversleeping, split end picking, and nausea are common signs of panic and stress. These are clearly affecting your daily life and people are starting to notice the changes in you.

Advice: It’s time to stop hurting yourself over them. And admit that as much you both love each other, he/she are toxic for you and should be shown the door out of your life.

When they are happy, you are too but when they are down, you feel worse than them.

Advice: Go to a therapist or talk to a friend. Preferably who knows your history and who has seen it all. They will surely advise you, push you and give you’re the needed strength to get out of this abusive relationship.
