When you’re in a relationship with someone you love, you always try to fight like hell to make that relationship work. After all, if there’s one thing in the world that’s worth fighting for, it should always be love. And it’s good if you adopt that kind of mindset in your relationship. It’s always good to have a fighter’s spirit when it comes to love. Relationships are never designed to be easy or simple after all. You’re not going to get your “happy ever after” kind of romance by just being relaxed and complacent.
You can’t ever sustain your relationships by taking days off. You always have to be working hard at maintaining the love in your relationship; you always have to be working at getting closer to your partner. And this is especially true whenever your relationship is forced to face adversity and trials. You aren’t going to have perfect roads ahead. Your relationship isn’t always going to be blessed with ideal conditions. There will be moments wherein the two of you will be tested. There will be times wherein the two of you will just want to quit on one another. And these are the moments that are going to make or break your relationship as a whole.
Relationships are always tricky because they are a hit and miss a lot of the time. You can be completely in love with someone and still not be the right person for them. That’s just how love works. It’s never a certainty. And that’s why there are so many people who stay in relationships that are wrong for them. There are so many couples who continue to fight a losing battle because they are too stubborn to realize that they are just wasting their time. And make no mistake about it, sometimes, not even all the love and effort in the world will be enough to save a relationship. And this is where you have to really be smart about it.
Yes, you always want to be fighting for the love that you think you deserve. You always want to be making sure that you are doing whatever you can to save your romance. However, it also gets to a point where you really need to know when you have to walk away. Not all love stories are meant to have happy endings; and if you continue to waste your time on a relationship that isn’t meant for you, you are only going to suffer further. You don’t want to be depriving yourself of the opportunity to meet the actual love of your life; the one you’re truly meant to be with. And you’re never going to be able to do that if you continue to stay in this relationship that is only killing you on the inside.
But how can you tell? How do you know when it’s time to walk away? How do you know if your relationship’s problems are actually solvable? How do you know if you still have a shot at making things work? These are the questions that you might struggle to find an answer for. And that’s exactly what this article is going to try to help you out with. You don’t want to be throwing away a perfectly good relationship just because things were getting a little difficult. And you don’t want to be wasting your time on a relationship that’s just headed for an eventual demise anyway. That’s why you need to be able to spot the signs that your relationship is going to end up as nothing more than a failed social experiment. Here are a few signs that the relationship that you’re in just can’t be saved.
1. You no longer care about making it work.
You aren’t invested in the relationship anymore. At this point, you have already checked out and you no longer care about how things are going to turn out between the two of you.
2. You fully resent one another.
There is room for occasional annoyance in a relationship. You are bound to get into each other’s nerves once in a while. But it’s another thing completely whenever there is resentment.
3. You keep having cyclical arguments.
You keep on arguing about the same things over and over again. It shows that you are both too stubborn to compromise; and that you don’t know how to resolve your issues well.
4. You don’t share the same fundamental values and principles.
You are just plainly incompatible because of the fact that you differ on so many fundamental aspects of your personality. Sometimes, opposites don’t attract. And that might be the case with you guys.
5. You are already imagining what it would be like to be with another person.
You can’t take the relationship that you’re in and you so desperately want a better one for yourself. And so, you’re starting to have thoughts and daydreams about what it would be like to be with other people.
