Yes, I’m not going to lie, I’m not a psychologist or a licensed marriage counsellor or even a relationship guru. I’m just a woman who’s had good and bad experiences over the years and sometimes, I wonder, whether I can go back to school to study psychology majoring in relationships (is there ever such a course?) so you know I’m not just selling BS here.

I’m also a good listener among friends who have had their fair share of good and bad memories while being in a relationship, so I suppose while that does not make me an expert, I think some sharing can help.
While I have been in a serious relationship a few times, but none made it that far. Although sometimes I feel that I need to have someone in my life, I know that I’d rather be single than unhappy. I’m not saying being in a relationship is bad. I’m just saying that being in a bad relationship is possibly one of the worst things that you can ever go through.
Imagine the non-stop drama, fights, unsettled feelings and in the end, the exhaustion coming from the gap in your heart that you’ve been wanting to fill but couldn’t because of this unhappy, toxic relationship. In the end, ask yourself, how do you feel when you wake up in the morning to see your partner’s face? Ask this question again when you’re ready to roll over in bed at night. You don’t have to tell me, just tell yourself, if this is what you want for the rest of your life.
Of late, I’ve been hearing all sorts of relationship stories from friends and their friends. It got me thinking, what is happening in the world?
I’ll share some stories from friends in my future entries. However, I’ll be very discreet about their identities and just hope that whatever story I’ve shared will be a lesson to us all.
