11 Signs It’s Time To Break Up

All of us dream of having happy and healthy relationships in life. Conflicts are inevitable, and it becomes painful to admit that the relationship has run its course. Sometimes, people see the signs that it’s time to break up, while other times, they are just oblivious to the cues. The decision to end a relationship is never straightforward. “We bring our own histories and attachment styles into each relationship so the reason why we need to break up and when to do so is person-dependent,” says Kathleen Isaac, Ph.D., Psychologist, NYU’s Langone Medical Center.

If you’re considering breaking up and looking for signs to do so, here are some indicators that it’s time to walk away.

You Start Losing Interest

You Start Losing Interest

When a partner begins to lose interest in the significant other, it’s better to communicate those feelings. As we all know, communication is the key component of healthy relationships. Examine your and your partner’s feelings of fading interest. Evaluate the amount of effort you’re putting into the relationship, and the same things go for the other partner. Try to find the root cause, and decide whether the two of you can work together to resolve the issue. If it’s impossible to make the mends, you should walk away from the relationship without wasting more time and getting hurt further.

Feeling Pressured To Change

Feeling Pressured To Change

If your partner pressures you into changing yourself, then it’s seriously time to walk away from the toxic relationship. Everyone craves for unconditional love from their significant other. But when you start feeling less worthy in the relationship, it’s a sign that your authentic self is withering away. You shouldn’t be sacrificing your happiness because you’re worthy of all the love and happiness in your life. If they really love you, they’ll be okay with who you are as a person and there is no need to change yourself. Maybe, they are projecting their own insecurities this way. You should tell your partner to consult a therapist and support them through it.

Arguments Turn Unhealthy

Arguments Turn Unhealthy

Arguing from time to time in a relationship is totally normal and healthy. But things go in the wrong direction when you stop arguing in a productive way. People start exhibiting unhealthy behaviors when conflicts arise in the relationships. These might include refusing to compromise or giving the silent treatment. It is never a good omen for a healthy relationship. If you cannot resolve the arguments in a healthy and respectful way, then your relationship is not long-lasting and is headed straight towards a break-up.
