Breaking up with someone is hard to do. But in life sometimes we move on or outgrow a person. It is heart breaking but sometimes you’re better out without that person in your life. Consider the following reasons to break up with someone and see if any or if all apply to you.
Giving but Receiving Nothing in Return
Sometimes it is time to break up with someone if they aren’t benefiting the relationship any longer. If you find yourself bearing the responsibility of “fixing” the relationship it may be time to just end things amicably. Lets face it, it is difficult to find the perfect person. But compromise and mutual give and take should be in the picture. Love is a two way street. Don’t make excuses or come up with reasons to stay with that person if they aren’t putting in their part.
Suffering From Low Self Esteem
Have you completely changed as a person? If you can no longer find reasons to doll yourself up or there are feelings of constant low self worth and emptiness it may because of the relationship. Either break up with the person completely or consider taking some personal time off. A family vacation or temporary separation may allow you to find a clearer perspective.
Finding Your Partner Unattractive
This sound shallow but it is normal. One of the reasons people break up with their significant others is because they no longer find them attractive. Not just physically but emotionally as well. As time goes on we learn that sometimes people change and the personality could fade so far away that we no longer identify with that special someone.
Family and Friends Don’t Like Your Partner
If both family and friends express a strong dislike towards the person you are with it may be time to re evaluate the relationship. Tensions between family and friends can be quite strenuous and exhausting. Friends and family members want only the best for you. Consider their reasons and if strong enough it may be time to break it off with that certain someone.
Reconnecting with Old Flames or Looking for New Ones
Its normal to have a bit of a wandering eye. Everyone can appreciate a delicious piece of eye candy. However if you find yourself pursuing that delicious piece of eye candy it may be because your relationship has gone awry. Reconnecting with ex boyfriends is another bad sign.
