We all know that letting go of a relationship that we did, or we still care about is a very difficult thing. But, the real and ugly truth is that there are times where letting go of someone may be the best thing to do (even when it doesn’t feel good in the present). So, anytime you want to make this type of decision, you should remember that this is your life and only you can make the ultimate decision whether or not that person fits into it. As we said, letting go is one of the hardest things to do in life. Why – because your emotions usually cloud your logic, and because your feelings make it harder for you to concentrate. And it seems like the art of letting go can be confusing and complicated. But sometimes, ladies and gentlemen, you will find that it is necessary to let things go – simply for the reason that they are heavy.
In this article we’re going to show you 7 signs it’s time to let go of a relationship – don’t ignore them:
He/She is needy.
We all know that a good relationship is one in which you can depend on someone, right? But, unfortunately, sometimes too much dependence is a sign of neediness. And, this becomes a big problem, because neediness drains you of your time and energy, including the time and energy necessary to maintain other relationships and take care of yourself. And people, who are needy always seem to be coming to you (for favors, money, praise, or something else). You may begin to feel that the person is an emotional ball and chain. Well, this means that if a relationship begins to feel this way, it may be time to reconsider why you have a relationship like this in the first place.
You can’t “breathe”
Yes, you feel suffocated. This means one thing – if the relationship becomes a burden or you feel like you can’t be yourself anymore or enjoy the time you two spent together, then it’s a sign that you are ready to move on from the toxicity of the relationship. Yes, you must learn how to let go.
You’re constantly making excuses (for their behavior).
Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls – if you’re constantly making excuses and defending their actions in front of your parents or your friends, you could be ignoring the red flags and choosing to blind yourself from the truth.
The trust is broken.
You’re vulnerable when you’re in love with an idea, a person, an event, or an accomplishment. They say that loving is letting the other party hurt you, but you’re trusting them not to do this, right? Well, if your lover consistently hurts you, or your loved ones consistently don’t care about your feelings, let go. You’ve already been hurt countless times; what makes you think the pain will stop if you continue holding on?
The passion is GONE.
Can I ask you a few questions:
- Is your partner ignoring your needs?
- Did your partner stop being supportive?
- Did they stop doing the little things that made the relationship special?
Well, if your answer is Yes, then you should know that the passion is not there anymore. And, if the passion is dead then the relationship will be very boring and unexciting – a passionless relationship is the main reason why people cheat.
You tried everything (but it’s still the same).
And now, let’s all agree that there is only so much you can do when it comes to pleasing someone. Well, this means one thing – if you tried to fix your relationship time and time again and the same problems keep recurring, then this is the most definite sign that you need to let go of the relationship and find someone better suited for you and your needs.
Do you remember the last time you were happy?
You should ask yourself this question – when was the last time you were truly happy? Yes, when was the last time you were really satisfied and really comfortable with yourself? This means that you should stop forcing yourself and if you really can’t remember, it’s time to let go and move on.
You’re the only one making sacrifices.
And, one last question – are you always the one who has to give up more time, more money, and are you consistently the one who experiences more pain? If your answer is yes, then you should do yourself a favor and just let it go.
Yes, just let go. And remember – you’re not living in a fairy tale and remove the toxic thought that holding on can change things. Just let it go and live your life. Thank you for your time and don’t hesitate to share this article with your friends and family. Thank You and have a good one.
