Nobody enters into a relationship believing that they’ll split with their partner. What’s the point in being in a relationship at all if you’re only going to split up? However, some people grow apart naturally. You can’t stay with somebody if you’re no longer happy, so the only option is to break it off. If you’re at a bit of a crossroads and don’t know whether it’s time for you and your partner to split or not, these signs can help you make the right decision:
You’ve Tried To Make It Work
If you’ve both genuinely tried to make it work but nothing much is changing, then it’s a sign you should call it a day. Of course anything worth having is worth working for, but you should find making your relationship work rewarding. It should make you both happy. It shouldn’t feel like too much of a chore. It should involve communicating and then compromising, finding ways you can resolve past issues and move on from them. If the same problems crop up again and again however much you try, and you just can’t seem to let the past go, it’s probably time to let go of the relationship.
You Don’t Feel They Don’t Respect You
If you don’t feel that your partner respects you, the best thing you can do is talk to them about it. You don’t want to point fingers or blame or anything like that. Just explain the way you feel. If they don’t listen or make you feel worse for opening up, then this relationship isn’t the best thing for you. You deserve to be respected!
You Want Different Things From Life And The Future
The thing about relationships, is that you should both want very similar things from life and the future. You should both have the same sort of plans and vision. If yours are totally different, you can’t just wait around for your partner to change their mind. It may be painful to let them go, but you’ll end up going in different directions anyway. Although splitting up can be hard, there are ways you can make it easier. A DIY divorce is one example of how you can make your split easy and fast.
You Don’t Get Along Anymore
After being with somebody for many years, it’s common to not get along with them so much anymore. If everything they do annoys you and you can’t find one redeeming feature, then it’s definitely time to walk away.
Sometimes, you just can’t fix a broken relationship. You both need to want to fix it as much as the other, and have good reason for doing so. Never stay in a relationship out of fear you won’t find anybody else. There’s always somebody worth your time out there. You don’t need to jump straight back into a relationship though. Take time for yourself, get over this as best you can, and then get yourself back out there. Don’t use a rebound to make things easier. Good luck!
