Engaging in a relationship is one of the best experiences in life. Some would say it gives meaning to a person’s existence. Other people are just plain merry because of their partner.
If you have been in a relationship several times then it wouldn’t be hard for you to identify the signs that your relationship is slowly breaking down. Are you constantly fighting with your partner even over some pesky little things? Do both of you always argue about things even if it’s not needed?
Saving a relationship is always the best thing to do if things start to break loose. It’s really hard to simply let go, especially if you have invested so much into it. With this tough decision it is difficult for a person to determine when to give up.
So what are the signs that a relationship is ending? I have gathered enough information from couples and married folks like myself.
Here are 3 Important signs that a relationship is ending:
1. Your partner will tend to be disrespectful to you. It is always the case if your partner has fallen out of love. Respect is an important aspect in any relationship not just in marriage. It is also that essential because love alone can’t hold the relationship. A behavior such as being disrespectful means you are not accepting the person for who they are. Being respectful is simply understanding the person and also means you do not overstep the boundaries of the other.
There are some ways you can help resolve this issue. First, you have to be honest with your partner. Tell him/her that you feel disrespected when he/she do things you don’t like. Be open to each other and listen actively. Another thing, is to be positive with each other. Your relationship is at the dead-end if your partner does not see a problem with this kind of issue.
2. Having no time for your partner is a sign of another problem in your relationship. Resorting to other activities not connected to your partner when you have free time means you’ve lost interest to him/her. No relationship can survive if both parties involved do not invest time. It would feel very much like an individual thing, rather than a partnership. Having too many reasons for being distracted with other things is a way of avoiding your partner.
Help your relationship out by allotting some time for your partner. Encourage your partner to do activities that both of you will enjoy. Show enthusiasm in what you do and be consistent and clear as possible. If your partner or both of you are not willing to give ample time and commitment, then it’s time to call quits.
3. Constant nagging and fighting is an obvious sign of a relationship that is starting to break down. However, it’s is not always harmful for your relationship if both of you argue too much. It depends on the things you argue about and the set of manners you both portray. The thing you want to avoid is angry and abusive fights. That would be very hurtful and show loss of consideration and thoughtfulness. Give both yourselves a break and let go of all the fights and arguments.
Sometimes being silent is the best remedy when in the middle of any fight. But if one does not want to live peaceful then chances are is that your relationship is at the brink of falling.
These are just some of the signs that a relationship is ending. If you are experiencing any of these it is time to look for a solution to improve your relationship. Otherwise, You will be saying good bye to a once good friend.
