When To End A Relationship

If youre wondering when to end a relationship, then youre faced with a hard decision. After youve
invested time with another person, its never easy to say goodbye. This is true if youve been together
3 months, 3 years, or more. But sometimes learning when to end your relationship is the best thing
you can do for both of you.

If you really love the person youre with, you might wonder when to end a relationship and why. You
might think that just because you love him or her, you should stay and work things out. And very often
it is worth a try.

Many people give up on their relationships before theyve really tried to fix them. Because its difficult,
they throw in the towel instead of working on their problems. This is unfortunate, because many
people could probably be happy together if only they werent afraid to try.

And other people have problem after problem and keeping working hard when most people think they
should just give up. Its as if these people are gluttons for punishment. Their partner keeps cheating
on them and they keep taking him back. Or their partner keeps making other mistakes and letting
them down.

It seems they dont know when to end a relationship. But usually its that theyre simply afraid of being
alone and moving on.

There are obvious situations that should tell you when to end a relationship. If your partner is abusive,
its time to get out, no excuses. If you dont feel safe, even down to feeling like youll have something to
eat and be secure, then you should move on.

Other things are less sure. If your partner has cheated, for instance, does that always mean its time
to leave? Some people can get past one mistake like that. They sometimes end up with a stronger
relationship after the affair.

But more often they really never get past the betrayal. Even if it never happens again, the one who
was cheated on cant let go of the hurt. And the one who cheated will eventually get tired of the
suspicion and guilt.

If there has been cheating in your relationship, its not easy to decide if it should end. You should
really talk about everything involved. From trust to fear of it happening again, it should all be put on
the table in an honest discussion.

How about if you feel like cheating? If you have a really strong desire to be with someone else,
should you end it? These types of feelings are natural. You can even have fantasies about other
people. But if youre constantly thinking that youd be better of with someone else, maybe you really
would be.


If you love your partner and youve tried different ways of working it out, step back. How have you
really tried? For how long? When to end a relationship isnt always easy to see, but if you know youve
done everything and its still not working, it may be time to go.
