Together With Her, It’s not Healthy

Daily Prompt- Together

This is going to be the first time I will be talking about one of my best friends I go to college with and his relationship with his girlfriend. I;ve known his girlfriend for about 2.5 years and she’s a nice gal.

He and his girlfriend have been going out for about 3 years.

Slowly yet surely, he’s been opening up to me about the constant verbal abuse from her.

She is overly jealous of everyone he comes into contact with. His co-workers, his mother, and even me, being the “strike 2. One more strike and we’re breaking up.” One night, we had to study for a class but I didn’t know I was taking away her “alone with him time” and I really didn’t mean any harm.

She constantly yells at him for small reasons such as not talking with her late at night or when he tries to talk back to her.

You’re probably thinking “why can’t he just break up with her” or “He’s the guy, why are he letting a girl get to him” and well, I asked him those exact questions.4011651430_17fda158b8_b

His girlfriend had a rough childhood and even now, she still has a problematic family. He said if there was a day they would break up, she had to do it in her own power and not him. And I just thought”you’re such a good human being for giving her so much power in this relationship” because really, he just doesn’t want to hurt her or see the worst if she breaks over it. Because he’s a good, decent guy who is the epitome of a “nice guy” he doesn’t want to see her sad and always accepts her apologies.

But my friend will only be hurt in this unhealthy relationship and it’s slowly breaking his mind.

What do you do when the person you love abuses him/herself and you too?
How do you keep yourself strong in a weak relationship?

Things are not always easy and there is never one side to a story.

    Hey, your friend seems like really great person just thinking he really doesn’t deserve for such a treating That situation seems really tough. I think his girlfriend is just scared to be hurt again but to prevent it she choose wrong way. It’s not really alright for your friend to keep this relationship up if she keeps hurting him and won’t try to trust him. I believe they are both great people but really need deep long talk cause something has to change otherways no one will be happy here. Talking seems like such a little thing but actually we often skip the most important things. Hope everything will be good however cheesy it seems.

She still wants to be with him I think but I’m not sure how he feels about it :\ I’ve already expressed my worries just like you did but sighhhhhh it’s argumen aftr argument with those two 😦 I hope things will turn out okay too.
