In spite of the title, it must be stressed that love is an extremely important part of life. Sometimes it transcends to something greater, sometimes it doesn’t. Irrespective, it’s something we should experience at least once.
That said, so many people go completely haywire and suffer irrevocable damage because they refuse to see all the signs.
Don’t lose yourself to a bad relationship.
First, Listen to your Intuition
You can’t always quantify, calculate and measure the validity of a relationship, some things are meant to be felt. Some things need to be absorbed through an emotional osmosis.Before jumping on to all-knowing Google or messaging a friend, listen to your inner voice. What do your instincts have tosay? Neither your friends nor infinitely wise Google understand the dynamics of your relationships as well as you do. Is your soul whispering it’s time to pack your bags and go?
You Feel Debilitated Mentally, Emotionally & Physically
Are you feeling less and less like yourself? If you feel that you have to submit to every whim of your partner, it’s not worth it.
Have you felt a string of crises, conflicts and general chaos as of late? Perhaps they’re heralding a reevaluation of your relationship.
You Don’t Express Yourself
If you don’t feel comfortable pronouncing your thoughts and views, what on earth is your relationship based upon? You can’t let someone else’s position or ‘charisma’ overshadow your own. You ought to be with someone who makes you comfortable in your convictions.
You lie to your friends about your feelings
You don’t feel comfortable telling your friends what’s really going down for fear that you’ll get a ‘I told you so’.
You’re not Crying tears of Laugher
You know you’re in a rut when your significant other brings on the waterworks almost 24/7.
The general rule of thumb: don’t forgive a cheater. There have been some successful exceptions, however, more often than not, you are signing up another dose of hurt and regret. Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me.
Have you caught your partner red-handed? Have they caught you? Whichever side of the table you are on – take this as a serious wakeup call that your relationship is no longer a sustainable union.
You Don’t Feel Comfortable in Your Skin
Does the “love-of-your-life” make you feel inadequate? If that’s the case, it’s a clear sign that they’re not good enough
You’re Just Not the Same
Are your friend’s insisting you’ve changed? Instead of showing them that attitude of yours, perhaps you should pay heed to their words.
You’re Scared to Chose the Devil You Don’t Know
It sometimes seems more logical to stick to the devil you know rather than the devil you don’t. Don’t be scared of the unknown. A little bravery can go a long way in revolutionizing your life.
You may not recognize it as an opportunity, but with an open mind you’ll realize all is not lost. Be inspired by potential chances to make your life more fulfilling. If are in a relationship that doesn’t match your ideal - just walk. More chances await you. Don’t strive for a deep and rewarding relationship from something that has turned sour. Don’t put limits on yourself and your love life will soon soar.
