I was in a relationship with a guy and we engaged after three months. Sadly I don’t love him anymore. However, my mom likes him alot. Now they’re forcing me to stay in a relationship I don’t want to be in. Both families know about the relationship. I’ve started to hate the guy. My mom used to beat me because I said I don’t love him and that it’s forced relationship. How can I show her that I don’t love or want to be with him?

Sis Dolly answers:

What does he have that your mother sees as a benefit to you and to her? It sounds like you’ve told her you don’t love him and she’s insisting you stay in the relationship. The reality is that you’re the one who will have to live with him. You can choose to be influenced and continue the relationship even though you already know you don’t love him, or you can leave him regardless of what your mom wants you. Either one of those choices has consequences. The question is: Which choice will let you live with yourself and leave you freer, happier and more empowered
