3 ways to end relationships

Nairobi - I think that a lot of people who personally know me would
think that I am not well adjusted when it comes to commitment. What they do not
know is that I am very well committed to making money, business or something
that I am sure will clearly pay back my investments. But when it comes to
relationships, I do not know how to stick around and force something that is
clearly not working for me. I personally think that a lot of women should have
my approach and that way avoid a lot of emotional turmoil and problems in their
Sticking around to
change someone into your type
Someone has obviously shown you who they are from day one
and they are not making an effort to hide their bad bits but be flashy about them.
That is someone that does not want to improve for you so why are you still
there under the assumption of fighting for love. That is not love just so that
we are clear. When the feelings are one sided that is infatuation and the other
person is just playing along until the one they want comes. So when I see some
infatuation trying to blind me for a second, I mentally slap myself. That is
when someone will ask me why I cannot commit to something. I cannot commit to a
man who is clearly not mine.
When you settle for
the little someone wants to offer yet you know they have more
‘I lifted him. I was there when he was nothing. I used and
brought my all to the table for him to leave me for someone else.’ But wait;
let me ask, ‘Did he ask you two?’ When a man tells you he is not ready for a
relationship, he has a lot going on for his life for anyone or some other thing
he will come up with; continue waiting and see him drop everything for the
woman he wants. Do not let vanity and pride make you stick around trying to
change someone’s mind because they are a challenge or you want to prove you are
woman enough. He is clearly telling you, you are not the woman for him. Take
that and leave. Committing to a
situation rather than a man will only gain you heart ache and a lot of wasted
When it is a
relation-shit and not a relationship
I always do myself a favor when I see someone is not
treating me the way I think I should be treated. I just leave. I do not choose
to commit and stay in the struggle. We
do not have time for me to force someone to like me the way I want, treat me
the way I should be treated or respect me the way I am meant to be respected.
There are always more fish where that one came from. This idea of sticking
around because men are no longer there; I don’t know where women get this funny
notions. Tina Turner is like 70 and has a 40-something old boyfriend. I am sure
I am fine.
