The Straw That Broke the Camel’s Back

Even the strongest person has their limits. If you’re constantly tested at some point you are going to raise the white surrender flag, especially when it comes to relationships. When you enter into a relationship with someone you’re not just in a relationship with them you’re also in a relationship with their family, friends, children, and their past.

He or she could be the best thing you ever met and mean nothing but good to you, but if the external relationships start to eat into your internal relationship it could wreak havoc. No matter how much you all love each other if the external relationships are constantly interfering with your relationship it will ultimately damage, or worst, end your relationship.

When you’re in a relationship with someone that you love you try your best to overlook the external things that interfere with your relationship, you try to pick and choose your battles wisely. However, when you have several external factors that cause friction in your relationship simultaneously when do you walk away?

Do you try to stick it out because you know these external interferences are out of your mate’s control and stand by him or her and fight these battles together as a team or walk away? This is never an easy choice, especially if you truly love your mate. But at the end of the day you have to decide what is best for you. If you think these interferences are only temporary and will eventually end, whether it’s a financial, job or a family situation then it’s worth it to try to stick it out. But if you know these problems will be forever ongoing then my advice is to cut your losses and walk away before you can’t walk away because you’re pulled in too deep.

Relationships are never easy and when you have external factors that add chaos to the situation it could make something that once seem so small into a huge unbearable mess. This is when you have to ask yourself, “Is this the straw that broke the camel’s back?”

I’m just saying
