However, it’s important to note that it’s not always healthy to stay in a relationship that is abusive, toxic, or consistently unhappy. It’s important to have clear communication, mutual respect, and effort to solve problems. In cases where there is ongoing abuse or neglect, it is essential to get help and protect yourself.
