If it feels like a prison, it’s not a relationship.
Relationships are tough. You always have to constantly work at them to make them better. No one ever goes into an easy relationship where everything is going to work perfectly. You always have to persevere and remain resilient in your love to make a union work. However, there are times wherein you really just have to throw in the towel. Some relationships are just not meant to be and there’s no point in trying to force it. There’s no shame in walking away from a relationship that isn’t right for you. Here are a few signs that you should just walk away from your relationship.
1. You don’t have a connection with each other.
The whole point of knowing that you can be in a relationship with someone is if you have some sort of chemistry or connection going on. If you are in a chemistry that just feels forced and unnatural, then it’s really okay for you to just call it quits. You can’t force a connection in a place where there is none.
2. You feel like you’re wasting too much energy on it.
Your relationship should be one of the things in life that actually motivate you to get out of bed every morning. It should give you that extra incentive to look at life through the lenses of a happy and energetic person. However, if a relationship is what is draining you of your vitality and energy, then it’s a toxic one and you need to walk away from it.
3. Your partner makes disrespectful comments about you.
No relationship is ever going to work when there is no mutual respect between the two people involved. If you have a partner who is always disrespecting you with hurtful comments and laments, then you should just walk away. You have every right to just leave a person who demeans and belittles you.
4. He cheats on you.
Deal breaker. You should never have to put up with a person who isn’t loyal to you or who doesn’t commit to you. You should never have to endure a relationship wherein you are constantly cheated on. Relationships require lots of commitment in order for them to work. –
