Staying in a relationship where you are no longer needed can be very unhealthy, unfulfilling, and ultimately unhappy. Whether you realize it or not, or for instance, when people looked at photos of their romantic partners, it makes them feel good and wants to stay in the relationship.
The good time and memories make people overlook logical decisions like leaving an unsatisfying relationship.
Being in love undoubtedly feels good, but the question is, are you happy in the relationship?
Well, here are 5 signs that indicate it may be time to let go of him/her.
1. When your needs are not being met:
Every person has different necessities that needed to be met in a relationship. These needs can be emotional, like wanting quality time with your partner, or functional, like requiring them to competently manage money.
When one's spouse feels the other isn’t fulfilling his responsibilities.
If your partner isn't willing to try harder in fulfilling those needs, it’s perhaps time to move on.
The reason people stay in relationships that don’t meet their needs develops from the negative views the society has about being single.
It may seem like if they break out of the relationship, they may never find someone best enough.
But that mentality is wrong. You waste valuable time and perpetuates a person’s unhappiness.
2. Your friends and family don’t support your Relationship:
It is important to note how your trusted family members and friends feel about your relationship. If nobody in your immediate community supports your relationship, that’s a sign that you should move ahead.
If the people who cherish and support you see that the person you’re in love with isn’t making you happy, it’s a good idea to listen to their viewpoint.
Well, you may decide to push aside your friends’ and family’s concerns, but when you’re lying to yourself and friends when you separate yourself from your loved ones to avoid listening to their concerns it is a sign that it’s time to let go of the relationship.
3. Your partner suddenly becomes abusive:
It’s logical for people in an abusive relationship to love an abusive partner.
Research has shown that more than half of the women see their abusive partners as highly dependable. One in five of the women is of the viewpoint that men possessed significant positive traits, like “being affectionate.
This view is why most women stay in an abusive relationships.
4. You lose Interest in your partner:
This may sound counterintuitive, however, you can be in love with someone you don’t like. If you're trapped in such a situation, it will be nearly impossible to make it through difficult times together.
All partners have disagreements, but people in healthy, loving and reliable relationships keep the mindset that this is my friend, and I’m going to get through this with this person.
Still, it’s never easy to walk away from someone you love, even when the relationship isn’t working. The point is to listen to the logical part of your brain,
instead of submitting to the thrilling reactions that love can cause.
