Dramatic relationships are anything but healthy. Every kind of relationship—including family relationships, casual relationships, romantic relationships, and friendships—has minor drama, but when the drama heightens and becomes harmful or is consistently draining your positive energy, you must take action. No person has the right to make you feel terrible about yourself. No person has the right to make you feel trapped or depressed. It is important to remember that it is possible to free yourself from the stress, anxiety, and pain that dramatic relationships have brought. So, how can you escape a dramatic relationship and start your journey to finding happiness? By taking action.
Healthy Relationships & Positive Energy
If your relationship with someone you truly care for is harmful for your health, try confronting them and encouraging positive energy. Loved ones often feel comfortable enough to say anything that is on their mind, and sometimes, their words can be very hurtful. Did your best friend make a negative comment about your new haircut? Talk to her about the comment and let her know how it made you feel. Unfortunately, some relationships are not worth saving. If that is the case, appropriate action must be taken to restore your positive energy and to facilitate ending a relationship that is harmful to you.
The first step towards freedom from a dramatic relationship is thinking about what is keeping you and your loved one connected. Why are you still with this person? Is it because this person has been in your life for a long time? Has the person been with you through major milestones? In these cases, separation seems impossible. It is important to remember that over time, the relationship has become harmful. Would you like to live the rest of your life with major stress, anxiety, and emotional pain while remaining connected to this person? Or would you rather set forth on finding happiness and independence without this person in your life?
The hardest part about ending a relationship is realizing that things will not get better. We often give people we care about second chances. Over time, people are given hundreds of second chances. If you have gone through the same cycle, over and over again, than it is time to give yourself a reality check and find ways of ending a relationship that is no longer healthy for you. The conflicts that are causing harm are not being resolved. It is time to move on.
Always remember that life is too short to live miserably. Do not be afraid to improve, get rid of, or create new relationships built on positive energy. You deserve to live a long, healthy, and happy life. Drama is not needed.
