4 reasons good people end up in bad relationships

Nairobi - Why do good people end up in bad relationships?
Thinking they can
bring out the good in someone
Good guys are those people who choose to see the best in
everyone. They will make excuses for all the wrong things that this person who
is clearly not good for them deserves another chance. They will see the ten
cons and the one pro will make up for it. They keep searching for the good over
and over again until they can no longer look back at starting over. By the time
they realize that what they had was a lost cause from the beginning, they are
already tied down.
Good people have the
tendency to get attached to their bad partner’s affiliations
Their friends, children, and mostly their family; they want
to continue sticking around selflessly to make the relationship work not just
for them but for the other people involved as well. Even if their partner keeps
disappointing from their bad deeds, he or she will focus maybe on the family
that appreciates them and loves them already or the children that treat them
like a parent already. They no longer stay in the relationship just for
They know the desperate
situation the other person might be in
The dependency that
happens in most relationships and if not that, maybe an addiction or dire
financial straits. They get so good at always bailing this person out that they
accept it as part of that relationship. For some, they see it as them having a
relationship where they are important to the other person at least. That is why
they stick around and if the bad guy knows how to pull the right strings with
groveling and sweet words; that good guy is hooked. You will not see them leave
any time soon.
If you can be
credited with the fact that you changed someone for the better, that is a plus
for some people
Hoping that you will be the reason someone will say, ‘You
made so and so change’ is the reason a lot of people are in the type of
relationship they are in as well as marriages. You want the drunkard to stop
drinking and become pious. You want the one that used to wear indecently and
blow chimneys out of themselves is now wife material because of you. Yeap, that
does it for a lot of people.
