Regrettable phrases that terminate relationships
18 July 2016, 13:59
These phrases can cost you a relationship:
1) You are just worthless/useless. When you are at the climax of boiling point, that phrase easily slips through the tongue. But it pinches someone's self-esteem. Depending on the cause of your fight, someone may take it as a gospel truth. Probably, they have tried to do something but failed several times and your words could just be a testament to them. They may end up using drugs to mask the feeling of being useless and worthless.
2) Do you think I care? When you are mad at him, there is that burning anger that tells that you 'don't give a damn what he does or happens to him'. But when you cool down, you realise you actually do.

It's very easy to tell him 'I don't care whether a car hits you or not, better you die than be alive to torment me this much'. That's a deep statement that could mean something else to him. He could interpret it as your wish for him to die and should something close to that happen, the blame will be on your shoulders.
3) Do you think there are no better women/men than you? That is simply means comparison and could imply your willingness to find a quick replacement. It also implies that he/she or he is of little value to you and you already have an image of an option. To some, that will ring in the minds for such a long time that others will just call it quits.
