9 Signs That You Need To Walk Away From Your Relationship
If this is happening to you, walk away!
Not all of us are lucky enough to get relationships right the very first time. In fact, for a vast majority of us, relationships are mostly a trial and error kind of thing. Some relationships are experiments and valuable experiences that we need to undergo in order for us to grow and develop into mature individuals. We don’t necessarily know at the time that a relationship is going to be bad for us, but that’s okay. We must always choose to go into relationships with an open mind, an open heart, and noble intentions. We must always hope for the best for our relationships. But sometimes, even when we do hope for the best, relationships don’t always work out the way that we want them to.
It’s when we get caught in relationships that are not right for us when we have to really learn how to look into ourselves and the state of our lives. We need to be able to figure out whether these relationships are still worth fighting for or whether we should just walk away. Of course, you shouldn’t instantly quit on relationships at the first signs of difficulty. Relationships are never designed to be easy. But sometimes, it just gets to the point wherein you have to cut your losses and move on in life. There’s no point in beating a dead horse. Often, a lot of people can be blinded by their best wishes. They think that they are still fighting the good fight by staying in a toxic relationship even though their efforts are helping no one.
No matter how deeply invested you are in a certain relationship, you must always find the strength within you to just get up and walk away especially when things are getting a little too toxic. It takes a certain kind of strength and resolve to stay in a struggling relationship to make things work; but it also takes a special kind of strength to just acknowledge that things are never going to work out. This is where a lot of people tend to struggle in their toxic relationships. They have a difficult time figuring out whether the relationship is indeed a lost cause. This is what this article is for. If you find that a lot of the things that are listed on here apply to your relationship, then maybe you should just walk away while it’s early. Do yourselves a favor and move on to better people in life. Here are a few signs that you just need to quit your relationship.
1. There is physical abuse in the relationship.
There should be no room for any physical abuse in any relationship at all. If you are physically hurting or abusing one another in a relationship, then it’s never going to work out at all. You are both losers in this situation.
2. One or both of you are struggling with addiction.
Addiction is a real mental health issue and it should never be taken lightly. If one or both of you are struggling with addiction, then you both need to get help immediately before you end up dragging each other into the mud.
3. There is too much lying and deceit in the relationship.
There should always be a healthy practice of openness and honesty in all strong relationships. If you are constantly hiding the truth from one another, then there is no way that your relationship is going to last.
4. There are blatant cases of infidelity and cheating.
A proper relationship could never be sustainable if there are consistent cases of infidelity and cheating. A real relationship requires lots of commitment, dedication, and loyalty to a single person and to a single relationship.
5. You no longer respect one another.
Any kind of relationship is always built on a foundation of mutual respect. You can’t expect to have a functional relationship with one another if you don’t respect each other.
6. You don’t really communicate with each other.
Communication has the power to fix a lot of problems in a relationship. A couple that is always willing to talk to one another is a couple that maintains an open mind about love and life. However, when there is no communication in a relationship, then there is also no emotional connection there anymore.
7. You are both incredibly selfish.
A person can’t afford to be overtly selfish when in a relationship. Relationships are always a give-and-take kind of situation. You always have to be thinking about the welfare of your partner and of the relationship. If you only ever think for yourself, then your relationship isn’t going to last, and you would be better off single.
8. You don’t talk about the future.
You have to be able to discuss the future as a couple. If you don’t make an effort to map out your lives together, then perhaps it’s because you don’t really see yourselves going all the way.
9. You have cyclical arguments.
You keep arguing about the same things over and over again. You can never seem to come to a resolution on important issues and so you have the same fights constantly. Neither of you are willing to budge and compromise, and so your incompatibility shows.
