Stop being a terrible human and avoiding that difficult conversation with your significant other or your business partner that you are unhappy.
What follows next is usually bad decisions, self-sabotage, and a complete dumpster fire formally known as your successful life.
Look, I’ve been through two nasty divorces and a horrendous break up, and I’ll tell you that all three could have been avoided had a difficult, but necessary, adult conversation taken place.
If you’re not happy, tell your partner. Be mature. Talk it out. Leave emotion out of it. Figure out a solution.
If not, you can part ways on good terms instead of getting caught trolling 20-something bartenders on Instagram.
Man up (even if you’re a woman) and show respect to your partner by bringing up your issues and seeking out a resolution. And then get your butt into therapy and work on being the best person you can be.
There’s no shame in asking for help. I go every week and it is the key to my success.
