It happens: people fall in love so deeply and everything seems to be perfect, but for some mysterious reason their love doesn’t last. Life is strange. Love is a battlefield.
Sometimes, you should wave the white flag and end a relationship with someone you love. It’s sad, painful, heartbreaking…especially when there’s no specific reason for you to leave them and move on. But, your heart keeps telling you a different story: it’s just not right.
Here are 7 clear reasons why you should break up with someone even if you’re still in love with them.
1. You can’t stop thinking about it.
If you keep thinking about your relationship and deep down believe your partner is not ‘the one’, you obviously, don’t want to be in that relationship. Then, you should be honest about your feelings: you should stop torturing yourself because you have one foot already out the door.
2. You have become total strangers.
People change. One day, you wake up and realize that the person lying in the bed next to you is a total stranger. You know nothing about them and they don’t understand you anymore. You share no feelings and have nothing to say to each other. Your dreams and goals are totally different. It’s not fair, I know, but that’s life, and life is too short for you to lie to them and yourself and try to fix a relationship that’s already broken and can’t be fixed at all.
3. You can’t stand their daily habits.
We all have annoying habits that may be intolerable to others; However, if your partner’s habits are getting on your nerves and driving you crazy, you should consider it a red flag. You should accept the truth that you won’t be able to live with someone whose habits you can’t stand.
4. You don’t feel the spark anymore.
Your relationship is all about boring routines. Moreover, you don’t feel any excitement when you kiss your partner and their touch makes you feel cold. It’s nobody’s fault. You simply aren’t attracted to them anymore and can’t help yourself with that. There’s nothing left to keep the flame of your love alive.
5. You find yourself flirting with others.
There is something you can’t explain to yourself that bothers you a lot. Maybe you need more attention or you’re simply bored. These feelings may lead you to search for what you’re missing in someone else. Flirting may lead to infidelity. If you find yourself in this kind of a situation, it’s better to break up.
6. You can’t imagine future with them.
You don’t know exactly where you stand with your partner. You are not sure if they are the person you have been waiting for your whole life. You have your own plans in which there is no space for your partner and they have theirs. If your partner is someone you don’t feel you can spend your life with, it’s time to end the relationship.
7. You just don’t feel happy anymore.
And you won’t be happy sharing a life with them because you’re moving in different directions. Listen to your heart: if it’s is telling you it’s time to move on, believe it because your heart knows the truth.
And remember: Every end is a new beginning.
