Fight Or Flight: How To Decide When Enough Is Enough In Your Relationship

by Jessica Amey

Have you been having a tough time in your relationship lately? Or, perhaps this isn’t the case things just haven’t felt quite right. It’s never going to be easy to decide to give up on a relationship, and it shouldn’t be a quick decision. It is going to take some time to think about and come to a choice that suits you the best. At the end of the day, you’ve got to do what is best for you, and in this article, we’re going to be giving you some advice as to how to decide when enough is enough. Keep reading down below if you would like to find out more.

Caring About What Your Partner Does
In the beginning of the relationship, we bet that you cared a lot about where your partner went and what they did. Not necessarily because you were jealous, but because you liked knowing about their day. If you’ve found that this has gone, and you no longer care about what your partner does in the slightest, then this could be a sign that you’ve had enough. You should be interested in your partner’s life and what they are doing, so if you aren’t then this isn’t the best sign.

More In Love With Your Memories
It is often the case that someone ends up more in love with the memories of their relationship, rather than the relationship itself. It might be because the relationship has changed, and you are still holding on to what it used to be, rather than what it is now. If this is true for you, then you must let go for your own sake. You cannot continue to be with someone because you love the memories, or even because you love them. Sometimes love is not enough on its own, and it will lead to chaos in the future. 

If you’re married, then you need to start the divorce proceedings, potentially even get a financial order depending on how it all goes. If you’re not married, then say goodbye and move forward with your respective lives. But, you can still be friends if you both want to be. Treasure the memories that you made together and make some more, you just don’t have to be together!

It’s A Different Kind Of Feeling
Feelings can change over time, and sometimes you just fall out of love. There is nothing you can do about it, and it doesn’t mean that you don’t care for your partner any longer, it just means you don’t love them. If you feel like this, then it would be unfair for you to continue the relationship because it gives your partner false hope. Explain to them what is going on and how you feel so that hopefully the split can be as amiable as possible.

We hope that you have found this article helpful, and now see some of the ways that you can decide when enough is enough in your relationship. Do what is best for you, and never feel guilty for that. We wish you the very best in life.
