“Don’t worry when I fight with you, worry when I stop because it means there is nothing left for us to fight for”.
How many times have you wanted to throw in the towel on a relationship? By relationship here, I’m talking about any and all. Family, friends you love to spend your time with, lovers, etc. How often have you thrown your hands in the air and yelled “That’s it, I’m done”. Sally has pissed you off one last time. John keeps getting on your last nerve. Aunt Betty should really start minding her own business.
Relationships really can be quite challenging at times. Your sister, your boy/girlfriend, your boss. Trying to maintain healthy relationships at all times can almost seem futile.
Someone at some time is going to say something that is going to send you over the edge. Period. Is it them or me? You spend too much energy being angry and worrying.
So how do we let it go and stay positive even in the midst of a battle? How on earth do we keep a smile on our face when we think we have had enough and can’t take anymore?
These affirmations just might help you. Next time you are feeling down about a relationship, try one or two or ALL of these affirmations to help get you through and possibly help you to see your relationship in a whole new happy light.

You will also find that as your feelings of self-worth grow, you will have more patience and more understanding for those people in your life that will hurt, agitate, anger or just plain piss you off.
When we come from a place of love and acceptance, we can view the other person with more compassion, love, kindness and respect.
Our hearts and minds change as does the previous perception we had of this relationship or person. We no longer feel frustrated, angry or fed up. Negative feelings are swift to come up in the heat of a moment, but when we have and feel more love, they generally tend to stay buried and love comes up first. It really is a beautiful thing.
How exactly do you use these affirmations?
- If a situation arises step away from it, go lock yourself in the bathroom if you have to, and start chanting.
- Repeat any of them or many of them over and over.
- Loudly if you can, write them out on a piece of paper if that’s your thing, mutter them under your breath if that’s the only way but just start affirming positive happy things immediately.
The more you do this, the easier it will be and the less stressed you will be. It really is a win win.
