Sometimes I think people stay in relationships, (no matter how destructive) just because they feel validated or better about themselves by being in one, and having someone there. What do you think?

Oh so true, so true, and jumping out of ones comfort zone is scary when you don't know the outcome will be any better than where you are now. :) We are such creatures of habit.
Unfortunately, I know several people that are in relationships that must feel the same way. I'm glad you've never experienced it yourself or me either as far as that goes, (at least I don't think so???:)
Ahhh the security blanket, good point and a definite factor for so many in relationships.
Hello :) Just read your hub which was very insightful into turning things around in reference to the way we think about relationships and why we stay in destructive ones. Thank you for sharing both your answer and the hub.
Your so right Jaydene about loving yourself before being able to love someone else. I also think if people put as much effort into loving one another or doing nice things instead of ripping each other apart, the relationship would last a lot longer.
I couldn't agree more. Men and women need to be independent of each other and love themselves before perusing a relationship. How can they expect someone to love them when they really don't even know who they are. Thanks
