Hello, and welcome back.
When it comes to love and relationships, why do intelligent women like us behave insecurely while we usually are so confident and powerful at work?
We hang onto obviously bad relationships with men who don’t treat us right.
I think it’s our intelligence that gets us in trouble with love. What I mean by that is that we have such capability to reason and justify any bad situation. What we do is almost like convincing ourselves that we are happy even when we are not sure that’s true.
And, because we have invested in ignoring our own gut feelings and inventing with reasons and justifications for that mediocre relationship, we convince ourselves that we MUST in be love. We tend to give the benefit of the doubt until we just get so exhausted!
“He must have had bad experiences with women in the past….” “He must have hurt and heartbroken with his ex. I should be nice to him.” “He must have a bad childhood and his parents didn’t love him enough.” etc.
What about US? What about YOU?
Are YOU truly happy in that relationship?
Are YOU truly happy with him?
