One of the main reasons people don’t end toxic relationships is because they’re afraid to be alone. - Colin Wright

Life Quote: One of the main reasons people don’t end toxic relationships is because they’re afraid to be alone. There’s a deep-seated fear in many that to be alone is to be a failure, to be lost. If they don’t have their partner, a partner, any partner, they have no plans, no aspirations, no dates to keep. They identify as being one half of a whole, rather than being whole all by themselves. I prefer to be a complete individual, first. – Colin Wright

Don't be afraid to distance yourself...

Don’t be afraid to distance yourself from everyone and everything – and recoup. Sort out your thoughts. Listen to your heart. Breathe. Read a book. Write about how much your life has sucked – then write about how much you can’t wait to see the positive changes. Relearn yourself. Accept all the hurt you’ve been through. Forgive anyone and everyone who’s hurt you. Even if that means doing it within, and never physically or verbally reaching out. Let go and rejuvenate. Take a step away from the chaos, and find peace within. – Reyna Biddy
