Being single in the modern age is harder than ever (hello, awful dating apps!), but nothing is worse than being with someone who is toxic or not right for you. The emotional turmoil, wasted time, and lowered self esteem is just the beginning. Bad relationships can affect you emotionally for a lifetime and impair your ability to trust people. If you are currently anxious about being single or in a bad relationship, trust us, it’s better to be single than with the wrong person. Here’s why:
Your Partner Affects Every Aspect of Your Life
Studies show that our partner greatly affects success in just about every aspect of our lives. While a great partner can take us higher, a bad partner can take us to the depths of despair. If you’re in a toxic relationship, you will suffer in most other parts of your life, including your health, self-esteem, friendships, and mental well-being. Stop the madness. NO ONE is worth being miserable.
You Can’t Find Mr(s). Right While You’re Stuck With Mr(s). Wrong
All that time wasted on the wrong person can never be retrieved. So, you end up wasting years (and your youth) on someone who’s not right for you, while you could be free to find someone who is a better match. There are currently 7.6 billion people on this planet; don’t waste your time on someone who doesn’t make you feel happy, accepted, and loved. Life is too short.

You Will Have More Time To Do Anything You Want
Imagine all the things you can do once you’re free and no longer tied down by a bad relationship! You’ll have time to work on new goals, pick up new hobbies, exercise, hang out with friends, travel, and practice more self-care. Not only will you have more free time to live your life, you will be emotionally free. Imagine lifting all that turmoil off your shoulders. Just think of the possibilities!
Love Is Not Enough, But Self Respect Is
Contrary to popular (and trite) notions that “love conquers all” this is simply not the truth. Love is not enough to stay when you are suffering for it. Not all forms of love are good; some are bad and damaging. While it’s normal to have ups and downs in a relationship, constant pain and fighting is unhealthy. Having self-love and self-respect is the key to happiness, and once you find this, you will leave bad forms of love behind.
