12 Signs You Probably Need to Leave Your Partner
All of us have bad and good times while in a relationship, however, there are also times when it feels like things aren’t the same and are out of control. Due to that, we are clueless, not knowing how to deal with that.
After we are out of the relationship, it feels like we open our eyes for the first time, and we clearly see everything.
However, you should know when it is time to leave and end the relationship. In order to know that you need to know the signs. Although there are many, below you will see the most common ones which means that it is time to move on.
Signs You Should End the Relationship
#1 You Don’t Trust Each Other
It is crucial to trust your partner and vice versa completely. If one of you goes through your partner’s phone, social media accounts, emails, and stuff on a regular basis, then this is a clear sign that you don’t trust that partner.
You should know that no relationship can survive without trust. Although, yes this lack of trust might occur due to the previous event of infidelity, but still it is not an excuse.
If you decide to stay with your partner after that infidelity, you should have agreed to forgive them and stay with them.
You shouldn’t act like the police and talk about the event all the time because if you think about it, you will realize that there is no point in staying and being in such a relationship.
If you cannot get past their infidelity, don’t stay because you will only hurt yourself. Trust is essential for a healthy and happy relationship.
#2 You See the Relationship As a Burden
Most people get into relationships in order to be happier, and healthy relationships help you grow in every single aspect of life.
But it can happen for your relationship to take more energy than it can give you, for the bad to outweigh the good, and to feel like a burden and not a blessing.
If you don’t have fun and you feel that your happiness is fading away, then you need to end it. There is no point in seeing your partner or relationship as a burden. Your partner and your relationship need to be your happy place.
#3 You Avoid Contact
When you’re satisfied with your relationship and partner, all you want to do is spend time with them, just enjoy their company and not the opposite.
In case you see that you avoid your partner, and you see yourself staying at work overtime just to avoid them or going other places and not home then you should know that this is a sign that your relationship is not going in the right direction.
You should see this as a clear sign that you should end the relationship.
#4 You Always Complain About Your Partner
A sign you should stop the relationship is if when you are out with your family and friends, all you do is complain about your partner and how unhappy you are.
Yes, it is entirely reasonable to vent out from time to time. However, if all you do is complain about your relationship, then you should stop.
If you can relate, you need to stop for a second and think about it. Why do you complain? Can you fix it? If not, then you should take it as a sign to leave.
#5 You Feel As You Don’t Know Your Partner Anymore
Communication is important in all relationships since it is how you make a better understanding of each other and communication is what keeps and brings you closer.
In case you feel you cannot tell you’re significant other what you prefer or how you feel because you believe they won’t sympathize.
If you don’t know where your partner is the entire weekend, and you don’t want to know, then there is something wrong with your relationship.
Also, another red flag is considered if both of you don’t have any plans for the future or talk about the future.
In case you have been together for a long time, and still, you’ve never talked about family and future career goals that might be because both of you don’t see your partner there. In case you cannot communicate on a basic level then you shouldn’t waste your time and simply leave.
#6 Your Relationship Is Lop-sided
In order for the relationship to work both of you need to work on it, however, if only one of the partners is making all the efforts while the other thinks that working on the relationship is not crucial, then you should end the relationship.
If you don’t do it now, over time, you will get tired of giving 100 percent and not receiving anything in return. Eventually, you will give up.
#7 There Is No or Only Little Physical Intimacy
You should bear in mind that physical chemistry and emotional chemistry go together. Although, yes, it is entirely normal for those couples who are a long time together to lose some of their passion.
But it is not normal for this to happen for a long time and if making love feels like a chore, then this is a red flag. If you grow apart physically, that might mean that you aren’t happy with each other in general.
#8 If You Cannot Be Yourself In the Relationship – Leave
What’s the point in being in a relationship where you cannot be yourself? Not this doesn’t apply to making compromises; it is about quieting your voice, dimming your light, feeling ashamed to be who you really are.
Bear in mind that your relationships need to help you become the best version of yourself. You shouldn’t feel as you are playing a role in your relationship. If this is what you do, then you need to end the relationship.
#9 You Are Not Happy
Are you happy? If you are always crying and feeling down, then you need to leave. If you are unhappy, that can impact your productivity, well-being, mood, and energy.
#10 You Fantasize About Being Single
Do you fantasize? We aren’t talking about simply fading into a scenario in times when you are inattentive or bored; we are talking about wishful thinking.
If you start fantasizing you are single or fantasizing you are doing things without the presence of your significant other such are parties and travel, then this is a red flag.
#11 You Fight a Lot
You should bear in mind that having occasional fights doesn’t mean you have an unhealthy relationship; arguments can be quite reasonable if they occur now and then.
But if they are persistent, for instance, if they occur on a daily basis and feel that it is the only way you communicate then you need to end the relationship.
Remember, no one deserves to be in a draining, negative and harmful relationship. Your family and friends might avoid spending time with you since you are the couple that always fights and radiates negative vibes.
Break the vicious cycle, leave for your own and your partner’s well-being.
#12 You Feel That You Are Resentful
In case you are carrying a lot of bad, negative emotions, bitterness, and anger because of what your partner put you through, then you should know that you won’t be able to be in a healthy emotional or mental state.
You won’t be able to be a more loving or a better person because you are still to this day hurting from the way they treated you and from their actions.
There is no point in being in a bad relationship. Respect yourself enough to end the relationship.
