Walking out of a relationship is not easy; except in these cases.
Relationships involve hard work and compromise. The first few months of a relationship are a breeze; the parties are always into each other and are always planning things together. A couple will also be best friends and become inseparable during such times. Two years down the line, things begin to change, and you start to see the other side of your better half. This is all fine and dandy because it’s part of getting to know your spouse, but there comes a time when one party can no longer stay in the relationship.
Here are 5 warning signs that it’s time to walk out of a relationship:
1. More tears than laughter.
If you are always in tears, then it’s time to move on. Everyone who is in a relationship hopes to stay happy most of the time; tears make life unbearable.
This is one of those obvious red flags that it’s time to move on. If your partner abuses you emotionally and physically, then there is no need to stay in such a relationship.
3. Your better half doesn’t work hard on the relationship.
If you want your relationship to blossom, you have to work hard. Working hard means respecting your partner, loving them, and being fully committed. If your partner does not work hard on the relationship, then it’s time to hit the road.
4. Both of your interests in critical matters differ significantly.
People come together because of some of the things they have in common. Therefore, conflicting interests affecting major aspects of the relationship are bound to create tension. For example, you plan to have kids in the future and the other party doesn’t, then maybe it’s time to reevaluate whether your relationship will work.
5. When love fades.
When the love has faded, it becomes difficult to bring it back; especially if one party has already moved on and does not consider the relationship worth fighting for. You will know the love has faded if no one is willing to spend time with the other.
