Admit it. You don’t always listen to your body when it’s clearly trying to tell you something. But that’s wrong. Even though your conscious mind tries to shut out the messages that your body is trying to send you, it’s going to persist.
You need to develop better skills at being able to pay attention to what your body is trying to tell you. Sometimes, you can be completely blind to a situation because of your stubbornness.
And that’s why it’s important to really practice good intuition. Your body could be desperately crying for you to act in a particular situation and you’re just sitting there doing nothing. You might be causing a lot of harm and damage to your own life without even knowing it.
You really owe it to yourself to pay more attention to what your body is trying to tell you. It’s added perspective. Introspection is very important in life.
And sometimes, your body can help you make the right decisions in various aspects of life including love and relationships. If you happen to be in the wrong relationship for you, you might not always be aware of it. You might love your partner too much to see that it’s actually killing you on the inside to actually be with them.
And don’t think that that wouldn’t apply to you. You can be perfectly in love with someone who is all sorts of wrong for you. And that’s part of the danger with falling in love. You can grow so addicted to that feeling of love that you become blind to all of the harmful symptoms that come associated with it.
But your body is never blind. It’s going to read and react very accurately. And if you find that your body is exhibiting a lot of the signs listed here in your relationship, then it’s likely that you’re going to need to change things up or just walk away from the relationship entirely.
Here are a few subtle but powerful ways that your body is really telling you that you’re in the relationship with the wrong person.
1. You rarely ever smile anymore.
If you’re not smiling as much as before, then you’re really not as happy as much as before. It’s as simple as that. When you’re in a romantic relationship, you don’t necessarily have to be happy ALL of the time.
But overall, you should be happy with how your life is. And when you’re just generally unhappy a lot, then that might be an indicator that you are in the wrong relationship for you.
2. You feel like your self-esteem is really low.
A relationship should actually be something that gives you confidence and a sense of pride. Your relationship should be one that actually pushes you to be more comfortable with who you are. But if you feel like your insecurities and anxieties are at an all-time high as a result of your relationship, then that’s a big red flag.
3. You feel emotionally overwhelmed and exhausted.
Whenever you are in a relationship with someone, it can feel like an emotional overload a lot of the time. But it should mostly be positive energy that is bombarding your life.
If you’re just emotionally bogged down all the time, then that might be a sign that you’re in an emotionally toxic relationship that is just taking too much out of you.
4. You don’t really prioritize self-care as much as you should.
Self-care is something that is always going to be important regardless of whether you are single or not. But if you are neglecting your self-care as a result of your relationship, then something is wrong. That means that you are prioritizing your relationship over your own sense of well-being. And that’s never healthy.
5. You try so hard to convince yourself that things are fine.
You spend so much energy just trying to convince yourself that this relationship is still worth it. But here’s the thing: that’s not something that you need to be convincing yourself of.
It’s something that you should already inherently know deep down inside. And if you’re just trying too hard to convince yourself that everything is okay, then that’s a serious problem.
6. You feel like you’re stuck in a routine you desperately want to escape.
You get the sense that you’re stuck in a kind of black hole that you really want to escape from. You are in a kind of routine and it really does nothing positive for you anymore. You know that you want to get out of it. So why don’t you? It’s clearly making you unhappy.
7. You get irritated and annoyed by your partner a lot of the time.
And lastly, you’re in a perpetual bad mood. You feel like you’re so easily irritated these days. And it’s all because you hate the feeling that you get whenever you spend time with your partner. It’s time to cut those ties.
