RELATIONSHIPS: How to Leave a Relationship Emotionally - But Stay In It

Check out my recent article for Psychology Today about how to leave a relationship emotionally when it hasn't worked for a while, but physically staying in the relationship and focusing on other parts of your life. The article generated some interesting feedback, as some people believe this is a cruel way to treat your romantic partner.

Sorry, but that interpretation misses the point entirely. Check out the article and decide for yourself, but this approach of leaving a relationship emotionally can mean the difference between you feeling frustrated and unhappy or feeling focused and positive.

The article is here: http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/insight-is-2020/201407/how-leave-relationship-emotionally-stay.
