      Do you accept bad relationships with red flags, verbal or physical abuse because you feel like you’re disability prevents you finding someone better or deserving better?

      Leaving bad relationships, whether it be a with friend, a family member or partner, can be easier said than done especially if that person is your caregiver. However, you are deserving of pure love and happiness. Just because you have a disability does not mean you should have to settle or accept disrespect. You are no less worthy of a good life than anyone else.

      If you are suffering from abuse, please call the National Domestic Violence Hotline for help.

      I think I did. Not abusive, but I definitely settled. I find it now very difficult to leave because of physical difficulties. I will have a tough time being single again.

        Hey Larry. It isn’t easy being single, but in my opinion, it is more difficult being in a toxic relationship or one that you no longer have your heart in. I enjoy being single, especially if I don’t worry about pretending or not towards another person. You said you stay because you physically can’t live independently? I don’t know where you live, but many government programs offer assistance towards independent living.

      Larry, do mean that you’ll have a hard time being single because you’re unable to have someone else step in to help you physically? Or will it be difficult emotionally? I can honestly say that I’ve never been more happy to be single. There are many advantage to only living for yourself. It has also given me a better perspective of who I deserve to have in my life and that is someone who fully appreciates me and what I have to offer.

      I was alone before and it was very difficult. I know I’m a different person now, but everything seems like it would be more difficult. My fear is that I will go into isolation because it will just be too difficult to go out and meet people.
