What is a Relationship Cycle?
Think back on your romantic relationships. Chances are that you have been in a relationship cycle at some point. If this is a new concept for you, you may still be in that cycle.
A relationship cycle is when you find yourself dealing with the same issues, and even the same personalities over and over, though the new partner seemed so completely different from your past partner.
When I worked in the field of mental health, relationship cycles were a common issue with the patients. I find that I deal with this topic even more working as an intuitive.
How Do I Know For Sure?
If you are stuck in a relationship cycle, you have likely identified the common traits that your partners had, which can include how the relationship began, and the issues that caused you difficulties.
You might be wondering how in the world you find yourself in the same situation again. It can be quite baffling. That is because knowing you are in a cycle is just the start of breaking the cycle. Next you need to begin identifying why you are drawn to your particular cycle.
- Janice is in her third marriage. Each of her husbands has had a serious addiction, and was abusive. Janice would leave a marriage, find a new partner and quickly marry. Shortly afterward, she would be dealing with the same issues that she found intolerable in her previous marriage.
- Doris was living with a man who she discovered had a sexual addiction. He liked to go to erotic massage parlors and strip clubs. When she learned this, she was devastated because her last relationship was with a man who was addicted to online porn and spent thousands of dollars on webcam sites. Doris said she had made sure that her new boyfriend was not into porn. She felt broadsided.
- Daniel had recently discovered that his fiance was making plans for them to buy a home without consulting him first. She had put a down payment and expected him to follow her wishes. This triggered Daniel because a previous relationship was with a woman who did not respect him, did not include him in plans, and had left him owing money on items he did not even want.
If you are an empath, chances are that you have been drawn to a narcissist. Your caring nature and ability to feel the pain of others makes you a target for the narcissist who is hunting for someone to fill the void in them. A relationship cycle involving narcissists, sociopaths or psychopaths is the most toxic cycle possible. They are unable to feel love.
What Can Be Done?
There is a lot that can be done to help you break the cycle, get strong, and move forward in your life in a way that is authentic for you. It takes delving into why you are drawn to a certain type of person; why you allow others to mistreat you and stay with them; why you do not feel you deserve better.
