In cases like this, it is better to be single than in a toxic relationship.

Why it is better to be single than in a toxic relationship?
Here are a few reasons why it is better to be alone than in a negative relationship:
Single people are healthier
When people are alone they focus on their health. They learn a new sport, go to the gym, exercise, etc. On the other hand, people, who are in a relationship, think that there are many things they would do if they had more free time.
Single people learn who they are
People who are alone have time to find out what they like and what they want to be. Also, they have time to dedicate themselves to their hobbies and interests.
Single people spend more time with their families and friends
People, who are in a relationship, tend to spend less time with their families and friends. However, people, who are in a toxic relationship, are forced to break off the relationship with their loved ones.
On the other hand, people who are alone tend to spend more time with their loved ones.
Single people are self-sufficient
Single people are independent and self-sufficient. Moreover, they believe in their abilities and think that they can achieve everything they want. These people know how to rely on themselves.
