Good Morning! Today’s topic is courtesy of our fabulous “Sexyleggs”. I think she has a pretty interesting topic that would be great to explore. Have you ever heard the saying, “Better the devil you know, then the one you don’t”? What happens when fear of singlehood is the primary reason you are with someone? Check out what SexyLeggs wrote and join in the discussion.
Do you find that more and more people are staying in loveless, boring or even painful relationships because they’re afraid of being alone? For those of you that stay, or know of friends that stay, could one of the reasons be that you see your “worth” being defined by your relationship or marriage?
Although I certainly DO NOT agree with this, I realize there are many people “stuck” in relationships and marriages because to leave would be a stigma to their family and to their belief system. They don’t want anyone to know that they failed at the institution of marriage. Are you one of those who fear starting over and deem it best to stay on familiar ground?
Some people look at becoming single as a phobia, so to speak. Why do you think the fear of being alone and venturing back into the dating world would have one break out in a cold sweat? Fear is our enemy and it has a hold on many relationships/marriages. Does it have a hold on yours?
