Shattered Trust Cuts Deep
You're better off being alone than being with someone who makes you feel alone. Because at the end of the day the person who you were with obviously didn't really care about how you felt and the time spent alone can be used to recharge your mind and spirit.
Though in all honesty when the trust you put in another is broken, it hurts something awful and once its shattered into pieces the attempt to put it back together is without a doubt one of the hardest things to deal with in life, but some people (not all) are worth going through such an excruciating process, so that you can begin to build the tower of trust up once again brick by brick. Broken trust truly cuts deep right down to the soul of a person, it is such a hard feeling to describe with mere words. All that can be said is stay trustworthy for yourself even if others are prone to betray.
That's why you should never apologize for leaving a situation to make yourself happier. your health matters and your happiness is important and if the person you are with cannot understand that well then they can be dismissed. Never settle for less than you deserve when it comes to ANYTHING! Life is too short to even begin to live like that.
All is equal in love, it doesn't matter who makes the most money or who has the better education, you should be focused on how to better one another in a positive way and not putting each other down. Love is equal. (that being said both parties should be able to bring something to the table people cannot survive off of love alone)/
Mutual respect is easily one of the most important things to having a healthy relationship, after all what kind of love would come from having zero respect for your one and only (Hint: a very very very dysfunctional one). Everything from words to actions should show that you both appreciate and respect each other because...Love is mutual respect. And if you find that the person you are with cannot understand what *mutual* respect is...it's time to have them hit the road.
As a couple, progressing in a direction both parties can agree on is a necessity to any healthy relationship. It serves no purpose for a couple to come together only to veer in two different directions, as it will most likely end up hindering the relationship further down the line.
So if you cannot progress with them it might be for the best that you find someone who is going the same way as you, relationships always work better when synergy takes place of chaos.
