The way that society is built, you need some sort of job to survive. It pays the bills, the more it pays it creates comfort and allows you to afford a lifestyle that brings you happiness. When a job becomes draining, the paycheque at the end of it can sometimes feel worth it.

A relationship on the other hand is a bonus. It can add to your life, give you a partner to share experiences with and it can feel fulfilling to love and be loved. However, you can survive and even still be happy without it. When you’re in a bad relationship, there’s no reward at the end. No one is paying if you push through. It leaves you drained and that’s it.
