last time i asked about the above question, cognizant of the fact that relationship matters are complex and subjective. Just like beauty is in the eyes of a beholder, how to respond to an ailing relationships depends on the people and circumstance of the commitment. Experience plays a major role too in influencing personal decisions on whether to hold on or not. People who have held on in the past and yet suffered the pain of subsequent break up will tell you that its not worth it to do so. The few who have held on and have had a taste of blissful future will urge you to fight on even though the present feels like walking on a mine field whereby the mines keep going off on a daily basis. For me, i don’t think its worth it to hold on when all pointers and instincts tell you that it won’t work. you might delude your self or bury your head in the sand like an ostrich but the disease will eat up all that remains and the result will be a painful death. Sometimes, I advocate for relationship euthanasia whereby a quick painless death is the first step towards resurrection.
