Things are going south instead of heading north? The person you thought was your soul mate, not? When you feel that enough is enough and you just can’t deal with it anymore, the best thing to do is, walk away. What is the point of remaining in an unhealthy & unhappy relationship? Because you look good together? Because your family thinks they are good for you? What is your reason? If you’re not happy, it’s up to you to leave, not anyone else’s choice. So when you ask your self “When to call it quits in a relationship” just follow these simple guidelines to determine your answer!
1. Controlling and Manipulating
You find the person you once loved is manipulating you into staying with them all the time causing you to avoid your friends. They begin controlling what you wear, where you go, what you do and when. This is a terrible thing that eventually links itself to physical or emotional abuse. At times, both.
2. No trust
This ties into controlling and manipulating someone. Going through your phone behind your back. If you find that you can’t even text without them looking over your shoulder or asking them, who is that, oh no let that go! Either they trust you or it’s never going to work, unless you gave them a reason not to trust you, it’s wrong. It’s still wrong to go through someones phone, that’s privacy. If you don’t go through their phone they have no reason to go through yours unless you summon it by flirting and hitting on everyone you see.
Cheating is the number one sign that love has flown out the window. If you find that you are seeing someone else behind your loved one’s back, what’s the point of being together? Go be with the person that makes you happy, don’t stay in a miserable relationship. In the end, it’s not worth it.
4.Physical or Emotional Abuse
You are no ones punching bag man or woman. If you find your once love is beating the crap out of you or making you feel bad about yourself all day this is abuse! Stop it and get out of the relationship while you still can. Some events are so fatal that it ends in death! Seek help and talk to a close friend you trust in. Things will get better, first step, leave that person. The first strike, is not the last even if they apologize and promise they will never do it again, remember.
Lying ties into cheating. If lies are constantly being told like, “oh no, I wasn’t texting her/him”, Then you are a fool for believing it if the evidence is all over their Facebook wall. Watch out technology can come back to bite you in the end. Also if you find that you are lying or making excuses to get away from the person you “love”, then you’re not in love. Haven’t you seen the show cheaters? Two words, JOEY GRECO ok, haha.
To wrap it up…
Why be in an unhappy relationship? It often feels like you are in imprisoned in a miserable life. Don’t live like that, get out, be free, and be happy. At least be honest with the person and let them know face to face, “hey, this isn’t working out”. Tell them why, I’m sure they’ll be hurt but at least happy you didn’t cheat or lie to them. Sometimes the truth hurts but it’s better to be honest now than to get hurt or hurt them later right? Any questions or comments please ask Linda below, thank you!
