3 ways to end relationships

11 February 2016, 14:54 Shakila Alivitsa

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 personal lives.

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 time.

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.
