Understand that many a modern relationship is fragile – but in reality what it should be is that when the going gets tough, the tough should get going.
Go with your gut instincts
Even when the other person seems to be picture perfect, sometimes it’s that gnawing feeling in your gut that will tell you’re the truth.
Time heals all
You can recover from a bad relationship because time heals everything including heartache. When you begin dating anew, you will have more self-knowledge to deal with any future relationship problems.
You cannot fix another person

Healthy relationships are not just the romantic sort. You can have friends, family, and coworkers who are a wonderful support system in your life rather than just an unloving partner who is emotionally unavailable.
