Chris Brown has decided to split with girlfriend Karreuche Tran. If you haven't heard of the return of Rihanna and Chris Brown's "friendship" in the last few months, you have obviously been living under a rock. In the latest news surrounding the crazy love story, Chris Brown has broken up with his latest girlfriend Karreuche Tran . This story broke today in US Weekly, although it didn't surprise too many, due to the recent spottings of Chris Brown and Rihanna around town being intimate. Although he stated that he loves her very much, he doesn't want to hurt her with his "friendship" with ex girlfriend Rihanna, who is known for spilling her emotions and love for him any chance she gets. Now that Karreuche is a single woman, there are a few lessons to be learned so as not to find herself in the same toxic situation again.
If you feel uncomfortable with your man's relationship with his ex, speak up about it. In relationships, you should never have to tolerate anything that makes you feel less important, angry, or sad. Let your guy know that the relationship makes you feel uncomfortable, and set respectful limits. A man that truly respects and values you will understand your feelings about him being too close to his ex, and make changes accordingly.
No man is ever worth losing your self worth. It doesn't matter how rich and famous a guy is, no man should be allowed to continuously disrespect you and carry on as he pleases, with or without you being around. No relationship or association is worth you becoming a doormat to someone just to have certain benefits or recognition. When you allow someone to continue to mistreat you, you're displaying weakness and low self concept. You're showing the rest of the world that you don't love yourself enough to demand better for yourself. You can't expect a man to even begin to respect you, or maintain respect for you, once you show him that you don't respect yourself.
Don't engage in social media beef with exes, or any of his women. The worst thing to do while social networking is to engage in arguments and subliminal wars for the rest of the world to see and analyze. This is especially a sad case with women who engage in these battles with women their man of interest is allegedly involved with. This is a very immature act, and it gets you nowhere. If you are in a relationship with someone that you feel is involved with someone else, bow out of the situation gracefully. There's no need to go back and forth with the other women. This makes you look silly and insecure. You are also admitting to the world that your man is not being faithful, yet you continue to stay with him, which makes you look even sillier for your relationship decisions.
When he shows you who he is, believe him. So often we get caught up in the hopes that a man can change with time, and we even blame ourselves when things in relationships don't go right. However, if a man has showed you over and over again that he is a womanizer, an opportunist, or has simply let you know that he still loves his ex, believe him the first time. Take this as an opportunity to find someone that better suits your relationship needs, not as an opportunity to change and tame this guy into Mr. Right. If he has shown you that he is not capable of loving you as you want and need to be loved, run in the opposite direction. Don't settle for a "for the moment" situation, when you can be working on forever with the right kind of guy.
