Does love need courage?
Does breakup need courage?
Or does ego have a bigger role in love and breakups?

I have always believed that ego is the recipe for regret. But how much ego and how much courage does it take to love right and leave before it is too late? 

I come from generations of strong women. My maternal grandmother who lived in the villages of Ethiopia walked out from a horrible marriage. Though unsure how she would take care of herself and her child, she never looked back. I wonder if I could have done that if I were in her shoes. 

Does having that type of courage plus ego keep you so independent that you keep away from love? The two seem to work against each other. But some of the strongest women I know are single. 

I would love to hear the perspective of a psychologist around this.  

More importantly - how do you learn to love just the "right" amount? Just enough so you are a dependable partner and just independent and stoic enough to leave when things are clearly not right? 

How to LOVE right for dummies anyone?

      @seunoyebode - Thank you Seun. I am hoping an expert in the field will write the book on it.
