A difficult romantic relationship can cause you to struggle in many ways. Perhaps you feel depressed, angry, resentful, or even suffer from emotional trauma. When a relationship turns abusive or even co-dependent it can also drain the energy from the sacral and heart chakras. This leaves you exhausted. Crystals can provide healing through grounding, balance, and renewal for those who may be struggling in a traumatic relationship or those who found the strength to leave one.
