Are You In Boring Relationship? – By Elizabeth Rose PIN 7430
Many people are in a boring humdrum predictable and loveless relationship. You might ask why do they put up with it?
Often it is because there is no real initiative to do anything about it.
If a partner was horrible to you, treated you badly in some way or cheated on you then it would be an incentive to do something about it. So some people drift on and on and do nothing about their circumstances. Others stay in the relationship because it suits them. Maybe they have the freedom to do what they like or they have financial security. Another reason is that they have children and reason with themselves that they will do something about it once they are older. But is it good for children to be brought up in a loveless and often cold atmosphere? Surely it is not a good role model for them and it will affect their relationships when older as it will be the norm for them.
Also is it healthy for your wellbing?
So look at your situation and ask yourself are you happy?
Secondly do you want this situation for the rest of your life?
If the answer is no, then do something about it.
At least make a plan so that you can be happier if not happy. You could open a savings account and try and save, even a little here and there soon ads up, you will need it for your future.
If you want to work eventually you could take a course in something that you are interested in like a computer course or woodwork course that will hold you in good stead for the future.
If work is not your interest long-term then you could join an interest group. Local libraries often have interesting things on. This will increase your social life and you will meet people who are interested in the same things as you. If finances are your worry then citizen’s advice will point you in the right direction where you can see what you can claim. For every problem that you have there is an advice line. A solicitor can give 30 minutes free if you want to see where you stand from a legal point of view and also what you are entitled to.
So don’t be unhappy there is help out there and once you start things moving then doors will open for you.
