3 ways to get rid of someone you don't like

06 April 2016, 21:05 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - There are so many ways to end up in a bad situation, a bad relationship or even a bad marriage. Honestly, the easiest one is usually when you tell yourself you are just sticking around until something better comes along.  Once you put yourself in a situation where you are with one person in mind, everything else just has to follow.  That is how people who were warned ended up being in those situations. That is how someone who already knew someone was a bad seed finds themselves in a bad marriage.

It is not that you do not know but you know; thing is you lie to yourself that you are just passing time but in passing time you end up entangled in a bad problem.

Do not invest your emotions in whatever that is you two are having

I cannot pretend I know, but you do know. The worst mistake you can ever do to yourself is investing in someone you already know is going to mess you up. And how do you do that; with your emotions. Emotions make you make excuses for them, keep loosening the leash and keep sweeping things under the rag. Keep a tight leash on your emotions and you will not be blinded when it comes to making the right decision for you; when it comes to cutting someone off because now you are ready to move on.

Don’t build castles

Don’t make plans. The first step into anything is when you make plans. Making plans is the reason people tend to think that a person will change. So you stick around, not because they are being better but because you are hopeful. Be hopeful for the right person but when this person has clearly shown you their grey areas and they are not trying to work on them; realize that this will not work for you. Unless you want to carry someone the whole relationship; be ready to let go when the time comes to let go but as long as you are thinking ‘what if’, you are sticking around.

If they have never taken you seriously, then why are you?

They have never stepped up to have a conversation as to whether you two can have something more. You are just there, hoping and thinking that maybe one day they will see you in that way. They have never made a move towards that direction. If anything, you are the one that is always bringing up the topic and you are the one constantly being silenced. That is a sign you need to take and if you were starting to get in your feelings, start working OUT of them. If possible, spend less time with them until you are ready to tell them you are moving on. Not for mind games but for you.
