But how do you know when to move on? How do you know when you have to stay and fight? Well, there are a few things that you need to keep in mind. There are some signs that you can be on the lookout for before you come to a decision. Of course, you don’t want to be throwing away a relationship if you know that you still have a shot at fixing things. But you also don’t want to be wasting your time on a love that is practically doomed to fail. And if a lot of the things listed on here apply to you and your partner, then it would be best for you to walk away.
1. You keep on fighting over and over again about the same things.
IF you keep on rehashing old arguments over and over again, then that’s a sign of your sheer incompatibility. It shows that neither of you has the emotional maturity or compatibility to engage in healthy conflict resolution. You can’t seem to come to a compromise with one another, and your relationship is never going to work that way.
2. You are the only one who is putting in the effort.
It takes two to tango. You shouldn’t have to put up with a relationship wherein you are the only one who is trying to make things work.
3. You or your partner are dealing with personal issues that are keeping you from your relationship.
Sometimes, the timing isn’t right. And it’s unfortunate if the timing doesn’t go your way in your relationship – but that’s part of it. There will be times wherein either you or your partner are dealing with things outside of your relationship that will keep you from being together.
4. You can’t agree with your ideas about the future.
The relationship is never going to last if you won’t be able to agree on where you’re both headed as a couple. You need to be able to see eye to eye on where you want to go as a couple if you want to last.
5. You can’t trust one another to behave appropriately when you’re not together.
It shows that you have trust issues with one another – and there’s a reason for that. You find it hard to trust each other because you know that you’re just virtually dysfunctional as a couple.
6. Your life is significantly much worse because you are in this relationship.
Life shouldn’t be worse because of your relationship; it should be better. And if you feel like your relationship is taking away the value in your life, then it’s a toxic relationship, and you need to release yourself from it.
