QUESTION: Why do we stay in unhealthy relationships when everything in us is saying get out now?
SCRIPTURE REFERENCE: Proverbs 13:12 Hope deferred makes the heart-sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life.
MY ANSWER: I do not believe the reason we stay in unhealthy relationships can be attributed to one answer. However, for this segment I will say it’s because of “Hope.” We hold out hope that one day things will change. Or perhaps things at one point were better and we are holding out hope that they will be better once more. Now, that’s my 2 cents; I want to hear what you think on this segment of “Can we talk Wednesday.”
The purpose of “Can we talk Wednesday” is to encourage healthy discussions about a range of topics. I ask that we respect the opinions of others by honoring your brother or sister in Christ with the fruits of the spirit as taught in Galatians 5:22-23. Now, “Can we talk Wednesday?”
