3 Signs it’s Time to End Your Relationship

I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again.. relationships are tough. Sometimes we find ourselves in a relationship that doesn’t truly fulfill us, but we stick it out because we think things will change or get better. Unfortunately, that’s not always the case. If you’re unhappy in your relationship, you should really take a step back and re-evaluate the situation. Ask yourself what is making you unhappy? Does your partner leave their clothes on the floor and it drives you crazy? If that’s the case, then that’s something you can work out. However, if they have a completely different set of beliefs and morals, it may be harder for you to have a healthy and open relationship. Below are three clues it might be time to end it.

You Feel Pressured To Change

Let’s face it. When you’re in a relationship, it’s completely necessary to make compromises with your partner. However, there’s a difference between making compromises and completely changing yourself. If your partner is making you feel less worthy because of the way you give or receive love, or because of the things you like to do or the causes you believe in, then that’s a big red flag. Consider having a conversation with them, and if they can’t see your side, then it’s time to move on and be with someone who genuinely appreciates you.

They Don’t Like To Do “Relationship” Things

If your partner dreads going to see your family or friends, then there is a problem. I’m not saying your partner needs to love every single one of your family members (after all, we’ve all got some crazy ones), but it’s important that they’re willing to do “relationship things” without putting up too much of a fight. If spending time with your family and friends is important to you, then your partner should realize that and make the effort to be there for you. You should also think about the future. Do you really want to have to beg the person to go with you every time there’s a family or friend gathering? That sounds like a lot of unnecessary stress to me.

You Feel Disrespected and Underappreciated

It’s normal to argue and have disagreements when you’re in a relationship. However, these fights should be kept to a minimum, and you should never have to deal with it on a regular basis. If you find that your partner is disrespecting you regularly, tell them to hit the road. It’s clear that they don’t value you as a person, and that’s not the type of relationship you want to be in.

Navigating through the relationship-sphere is never easy. However, when you find the right person, you won’t have to worry about all the things I mentioned above. The right person will be there for you. The right person will respect you. And the right person will love you for you. Remember that!
