Has Your Relationship Come To A Boiling Point? -Stephanie Bailey

Updated on October 7, 2013

My passion is writing about love, sex, dating, and relationships. I write based on my own personal experiences and those that I relate to.

My friend suggested that next time I get a Kenalog shot to help get rid of an acne boil—wish I had known that information earlier. Why can't every breakup be solved with a quick injection?

When a relationship isn't working our bodies will usually tell us is more than one way. Either we won't sleep as well as we used to, maybe we have reoccurring pains in our lower back (literally—a pain in your ass), weight gain, or in my case an acne boil—that decides to rear it's under the surface, large, painful, red head onto my face. Fortunately for me this unwanted parting gift happens after major relationships have ended in a not-so positive way. The more toxic the relationship was, the bigger the boil. Great!

Who doesn't enjoy their relationship excreting onto their face leaving the gift of a painful and ugly boil?! Ick!!! Adult stress, not fun…at all! Especially if you are like me and you're not use to getting blemishes.

The problem and frankly discomfort of having an acne boil is that it feels like a volcano building under the surface of your skin—just like the demise of the relationship. Only you can feel it coming, but for some reason you can't see it or fully explain it until it's finally ready to explode—uncomfortable, red, hot and usually (in my case) itchy like a rash. In this scenario—there is nowhere for you (or your boil) to run or hide! It's out there for e-v-e-r-y one to see and comment; probably similar to their harsh opinions about the unhealthy relationship you were in.

Could your boil be just as painful and annoying as the relationship you got out of? For me yes, but at least an acne boil only lasts a few weeks—unlike most exclusive relationships. However, the more you pick at it (as you probably did in your relationship) the worse it will get. It's like a painful reminder of everything that went wrong in your relationship planted on your beautiful face, and usually not where it's covered (with makeup) or hidden easily.

Bottom line, try your best to turn the heat down before it boils over (all over your face)—don't ignore it, don't agitate it. End it before it becomes a painful, horrific reminder on your face…or in your life!

      I totally agree. My mind and body---that gut feeling has never lead me wrong. Thank you for sharing!

      Sometimes you just "know" that a relationship will never work. I have had gut feelings that a relationship is doomed to fail, even before I am consciously aware of the reasons. I have found it is best to trust your mind and body in these situations!
