Determining whether or not to stay in a relationship starts with understanding a few fundamental psychological principles.
Let’s start with what makes most men stay in relationships that they hate: the scarcity mindset.
With the scarcity mindset, a man might constantly feel that the world around him is caving in. This man is not living, he’s trying to get through the day – he’s surviving.
We all have bad days, and we all limp to the finish line sometime, but your entire life should not be like this.
Most of your life should be spent reaching for new heights, overcoming obstacles, and feeling content as you enjoy the fruits of your labor. If that bothers you, that’s probably because your potential is out of reach at the moment.
In time, you must learn to be content with an abundance mindset.
How to Fight Scarcity and Adopt Abundance
The man who lives in a world created by his anxieties about scarcity will settle for a job he hates, a partner who he doesn’t love, and a life that is nothing like the one he dreams of.
No one wants a life that is “meh”, but many of us end up stuck in them. I used to be stuck in one of these lives – a life of pain, misery, and loneliness. A life of “quiet desperation”, if you’re asking Henry David Thoreau.
Scarcity is the root of this quiet desperation. Scarcity creates weakness, and weakness creates weak choices. Weak choices create weak men, and this creates an endless cycle of misery and depression.
That’s why to fight scarcity, a mental shift must occur. You must learn to live with an abundant mind. An abundant mind will create abundant life.
