When To Say Goodbye?
So many people stay past the point of letting go. We get in a relationship and we give our all and we bring everyone around us in our relationship as well. Before you know it we’re being counted on by so many people. So many people see our highlight reel of a relationship but not our behind the scenes. We get accustomed to shining publicly and struggling privately. Everything in the relationship is a mess and breaking down but we stay because we don’t want to disappoint our supporters or please our haters. We’re staying for the wrong reasons and we know it.
Here are some signs that it’s time to say goodbye:
- You cry more than you smile
- You argue every other day
- You don’t trust your partner
- You’re constantly being physically, verbally, or emotionally abused
- You’ve asked your partner to change over and over and they still haven’t changed
- You’re partner hurts you or disrespects you and has no remorse for doing so
- You feel like you’re in captivity instead of living in freedom
- You fear your partner
- You’ve lost all connection to the outside world
Those are some of the most common signs that it may be time to say goodbye. This is about you, not anyone else. This is about your life and your health. You came into the world alone and you’ll leave alone so you must always make sure that you’re happy. If you’ve done everything that you can do to make it work and it’s still not working then it’s time to walk away from it.
Holding onto someone that’s trying to let you go will only get you dragged through the dirt.
Staying with someone that doesn’t respect you isn’t loyalty; that’s stupidity.
Staying in a toxic relationship isn’t strength; it’s actually weakness.
Love is not pain! It’s actually the opposite!
Thoroughly evaluate the state of your relationship today and make some key decisions to make it better or to call it quits. Only you know where you’re at, what you’ve been through, and where you’d like to be. Make the necessary changes to make sure your future is better than the present.
