Why would you stay in a relationship if you feel you’re not getting your needs met and you’re not being valued, loved, appreciated, cared for, and considered in the ways you need?

In this episode, Joe discusses this question based on his recent relationship, culminating with the decision to end this one-year courtship which presented these issues constantly. During this time, Joe struggled with the question,” is it time to cut and burn” or continue to stay and “grow” from this situation?
