Teen Mom Leah Messer has had her fair share of relationship drama. After having twin girls with Corey Simms and getting married, she wanted so badly for the two of them to be happy and make things work. The truth, though, was that she wasn't happy and she couldn't fake it anymore. In a new MTV video, Messer admits that sometimes you just need to know when to let go.
Man, for a girl that's only 20 years old, it seems like she's learning one of love's hardest lessons early on.
When things just aren't working, ending a relationship is hard. If it's difficult, it means that although you may not have said it, you love that person. You probably have so many amazing memories with that person that you'd love to live over and over again. Inside your heart of hearts, you want to believe that your love for one another can outlast whatever silly hardships you're facing together and you can beat it.

The truth is, though, that sometimes wanting to fix things isn't enough. You start to wonder, why isn't this person who tells me they want things to be better trying to make them better? The big question faces you head-on: Is staying in this relationship making me happier, or more sad? Yes, lying to yourself is easy. Saying you can handle it and trying to believe things will just go back to bliss, well, it's not realistic.
Yes, pulling the plug does hurt, but the reality of it all is so does staying in a relationship that doesn't make you feel fulfilled. Everyone deserves to find love and be loved. Maybe at another time, you and this person can make it work. Maybe for now, you just need to breathe. Trust me, though, walking away takes strength and, ultimately just like Leah, you'll be better for it.
