Being in a relationship can be overwhelming and time-consuming but it is definitely worth it. The problem we have in relationships that people often fail to realize is we do fall out of love and when that happens we keep trying to patch things up because we are afraid of being alone or hurting our partner’s feelings.
For other couples, a break was the best thing that happened to their relationship. But typically, more often than not, I’d say breakups happen for a reason.
If something is making you question whether you should break up in the first place, you need to establish what exactly is wrong: Is there a trust problem? Do you have different life goals? Did someone cheat? Once you’ve narrowed down the baseline problem, you need to consider if it’s an issue worth resolving.
Below are 5 signs its time to let go of your partner.
- He/She is too busy to talk or see you
- You choose to spend time with your friends, your job, or your Netflix account more often than with your partner.
- Things aren’t really moving forward and there’s no good explanation for it.
- You’ve broken up and gotten back together more than once.
- You spend a decent amount of time thinking about what else is out there — and if those people might be better for you.
- Their negative personality traits have gotten worse.
- You’ve grown apart – Have you felt a rift between you that can’t be explained? Has it become increasingly difficult to communicate or share your likes and interests?
