There’s a difference between working out a relationship that you’re (typically happy in), thats going through a rough patch – compared to – staying in a bad relationship (that you’re typically unhappy in) in an attempt to force things to work out. The key is being able to identify the difference. Your loved ones, co-workers, and friends can tell you are hurting. Don’t let circumstances like (children together, time you’ve spent with a person, or not wanting to see them with someone else), keep you in an relationship that you know the majority of the time your not happy/miserable in. You deserve that happiness of a good relationship.
