Being in love and committed with someone can be one of the best feelings in this world. But how to figure out when enough is enough? No matter how strong your relationship, no matter how long you’ve been together, and no matter how much you love each other – it can come to an end.
Some couples choose to put a dot in their relationship, simply because it’s not working anymore. In some cases, the worst scenarios could be present.
The truth is that you have no control over the relationship to make it work out forever. Some people aren’t always good for you, even if you’re deeply in love. Or, you know deep down that, no matter how much you love them, it’s not working out.
There are many reasons why you must stop loving someone – perhaps your feelings aren’t appreciated, or perhaps your partner acts in ways that are negative to your best interests regularly – whatever the reason, separating from someone you have such strong feelings for is never easy. It is, however, possible if the proper steps are taken.
Signs that you need to put a dot
Your efforts are not appreciated
Every person has different “requirements” that must be met in a relationship. These needs can be emotional, such as wanting to spend quality time with your partner, or functional, such as expecting them to manage money competently. If you think that your efforts aren’t enough, and it is no longer appreciated – it’s time to draw the line.
You feel compelled to remain with your partner
According to study, people are more likely to stay in relationships in which they have already invested time and effort. If you feel like you need to stay in a relationship just because you’ve been together for so long and that’s the only thing left to hold on to your relationship, it won’t be healthy anymore.
You’ve been working on your relationship for over a decade now
Of course, when two people are in love and have been together for years or have started a family together, there is a stronger encouragement to work out the problems. But if you’ve been working on the same issue for several months or years now, you better let go.
Stop… Be Truthful to Yourself
The truth can be painful, but it can also be liberating. When attempting to stop loving someone, the first step is, to be honest about the activities they engage in that make your heartache.
Pay Attention to Your Emotions
Being in love with someone, no matter how short or long your relationship has lasted, can have a profound impact on your growth, personal life, or even your worldview.
Understand That It May Take Some Time
Life would be so much easier if there was a switch you could flip to turn off your feelings. But it will never happen, despite the innovation that is currently happening in this generation. Working through your feelings is the only way to get over them, and it usually takes some time.
