Table of Content
Relationships are very important. Being a relationship with a person you love is always very exciting and fun. When we fall for someone, we assume that this is never going to end and will last forever, but there comes a time when things don’t work anymore, and the connection gets fade. At that time, you realize that it’s time to end the relationship. Although ending a relationship is not easy and costs you a lot of emotional pain and suffering, but you must do it for yourself.
Why to End Relationship
i- Lack of Efforts
One of the most important things to maintain a healthy relationship is to invest efforts and time. You must know that it’s the time to end the relationship when the other person is not putting up efforts to be with you. Because if you are giving more than you’re getting back, it’s not worth it.
ii- Lack of Trust
Having trust in your partner is also the most important aspect of the relationship. Relationships are based on trust and when you lose that trust, it’s absolutely the time to end the relationship.
iii- Lack of Interest in Partner
Relationships are likely to be fun and ecstatic. You hang out, you give attention and show affection to your partner. But when you feel like your partner is losing interest in you, it might be the time to end the relationship. They might stop taking interest in you and your gestures of expressing love will make them irritated. Eventually, they might get bored with you and will find ways to get rid of you.
iv- Lack of Sacrifices from Partner
When your partner expects you to make sacrifices every time for the relationship that they are not willing to make than it’s not worth it. If you’re the one running back to them after every argument and begged to make up than the relationship may not be worth keeping. If you feel like you are the one making sacrifices one after the other and your partner is doing nothing to be with you then it might be the time to end the relationship.
v- Talk of Future Fades
The most important part of a relationship is the idea of building a future together. When talk of future fades this is the sign of ending the relationship. Obviously, if you don’t see any future with your partner than you don’t need to stay in this worthless relationship. It must be entertaining for some time, but it will cost you emotional suffering when you won’t be together in the future.
vi- When You Feel Being Controlled
There is a difference between love and control. You will feel emotionally exhausted and fed up when someone tries to control you and want to implement their rules in your life. You will get the feeling of unfulfillment. They might tell you what to wear, how to act etc. Everyone wants to live their life according to their rules so it might be the sign to end the relationship.
vii- If Your Partner is Abusive
If your partner is abusive mentally or physically you don’t need to stay and leave them as soon as possible. If your partner is constantly disrespecting and insulting you, abusing for meeting your meetings, etc. Then it’s not worth it.
viii- If Your Family Does not Support your Relationship
Family support is an important aspect of any relationship. It is important to know what your friends and family think about your relationship. We all depend on our family for our mental growth, stability, and well-being so their opinion matters a lot. When our family supports our relationship, we feel comfortable and contented that we have someone who will stand by our sides in rough times to manage stress. The relationship might not work without family support. If your family is not supporting, you then you must take a step back and should think that he might not be the right person for you.
ix- If Your Partner is Putting You Down and Make You Feel Like Nothing
When your partner disrespects you for no reason, insulting you on silly things, and become narcist than it’s a clear sign that your relationship is not good for you and you need to end this relationship. If your partner is always blaming you for every little thing, disturbing your emotional health and if you are the one always giving justifications and try to please them to make things work then it’s not worth the efforts.
x- When you are perceiving continuous anxiety
Fun and excitement are always part of a healthy relationship. But if instead of being happy you constantly anxious and worried than it might not good for you. If you doubt your partner’s love for you, if their behavior making you anxious, if your partners don’t put effort into a relationship than this relationship is not beneficial for you. You might seek ways to end this relationship.
xi- You Feel Alone When You are Together
You might think of ending the relationship if you feel that you are physically together with your partner but emotionally feel alone and detached. Their jokes do not make you laugh. It would be a silent sign that this relationship is not worth effort.
xii- When your partner stops seeing good in you
When we fall for a person, we always tend to see the good in them instead of bad. We always try to see the positive in them and ignore their negativities. It happens when we love a person. But if you feel like your partner has stopped seeing the good in you and he/she only notices your flaws then it must be a sign that your partner has lost interest in you and you need to end this relationship.
