Hey guys! Welcome back. I hope you are having a great weekend. Today I wanted to talk about relationships. As you may know, I recently got out of a relationship. It was very difficult, but it was something I knew I had to do. So today I wanted to share with you some signs that your relationship may not be working anymore. Not all of these apply to my recent break up, but some of them do. Others I have seen in past relationships or other people’s relationships. Hopefully this helps you if you are looking to understand if your relationship will be lasting or not. So here are some signs you may need to let go of your relationship.
You aren’t communicating anymore.
Communication is a really big part of relationships. Therefore, if you don’t have the level of communication you need to have a successful relationship, it’s not going to work out. You both need to be on the same page and understand one another in order for it to really work. So if you feel like you or your partner are not communicating clearly or effectively, it may be time to let go. This is also true if you feel afraid to communicate to your partner. If you are afraid of how they react it may be a sign that you are not comfortable around them.
One of you is needy.
Relationships are difficult, and it can be even more difficult if you can’t have your own time and space. If you or your partner is really needy and not allowing the other to have their own time, this can cause resentment in the relationship. Everyone needs their own time where they can do what they want and need to do. So if you or your partner is really needy the relationship may not last.
You can’t stop fighting.
All couples fight. It is a natural part of being close to someone. There are arguments and disagreements. However, if you are always fighting and lashing out at one another, the relationship is not going to work out. Eventually you will get tired of fighting and one of you will just move on. If you can’t find a solution that works as a compromise, there will be a level of resentment that is difficult to overcome.
Jealousy is a constant in your relationship.
Jealousy is a common factor in many break ups. Relationships often end because one or both parties was jealous in some way. So if you find that your arguments are often caused by jealousy in any way, it may be time to leave the relationship. You need to be able to have faith in one another and know that the other is being loyal. If you can’t say that about your partner or you are not doing that yourself, it is time to end the relationship and move on.
At least one of you is bored.
There comes a time in most relationships that have lasted a long time that you get comfortable and the honeymoon phase ends. However, that should not lead to boredom. You should never be bored of your partner. They should make your life better and more exciting. If not, it may mean that you aren’t with the right person and you don’t get excited when you are around them.
One of you is trying to change the other.
A big aspect of successful relationships is being able to accept the person as they are. If you can’t accept your partner as they are right now, they are not the person for you. It is good to challenge each other and want to be better, but you shouldn’t be trying to change their personality or force them to be something they are not. You should be able to love someone as you grow together as a couple.
You don’t see a future.
If you can’t see a future it is definitely time to get out of the relationship. There is no point in wasting anyone’s time in that situation. You should be spending the time to better yourself and work towards being the best version of yourself for when the right person comes along. When you are with the right person you should be able to see a future with that person and know that you will be happy.
You don’t trust each other.
When it comes to being in a lasting relationship, there should always be trust. You shouldn’t have doubts that the person you are with is going to care for you and always be honest with you. You shouldn’t have any major concerns that you don’t see working out for you and the relationship. If you or your partner cannot trust the other person, it may be time to let go and move on.
