I didn’t get to see New Edition perform when they were in town so I have had this song stuck in my head! Any love song that makes you think about your old flames is a classic in my book.
Whenever I hear this song, I think about a certain someone from years ago who taught me alot about relationships, “the good, the bad, and the ugly.” One of the things I learned is that I really, really, really, dislike relationship drama. It’s exhausting!
A reader sent me a recent NY Times article about another study that surprised me. Researchers at Florida State University surveyed 1,611 men and women age 18 to 23 in the Miami area, and they “found that thorny relationships take a far greater toll on men.”
When you are experiencing drama in your dating relationships, does it take a toll on you?
Of course, men and women express emotion very differently. A lot of times, people don’t realize that the source of their stress is actually stemming from relationship drama.
I’m not one to endure a bad situation for too long. Why do you think people stay in situations when it is clear things are not going to work out?
When should you stay “through the rain” and the hard times? Is a bad relationship better than no relationship?
Have a wonderful and safe Labor Day weekend everyone!
