When is it Time to Break up?

The thought of breaking up with someone that you have feelings for isn’t necessarily a pleasant one, but sometimes it must be done. You may be afraid to let go or you may wonder if you could even get through the break up.

There may come a time in your relationships when things aren’t going right and breaking up just may be the right thing to do.

So, exactly when is it time to break up?

When you experience physical abuse

You may think that physical abuse only happens with older people, but indeed it can happen with teens as well.

When your relationship is at the point where you two are beating up on each other, or one is beating up on the other, then you may want to rethink things.

It should never come down to the point where you guys are putting your hands on one another. I know it’s easy to get on one anothers nerves and even easier to want to slap them upside the head; but it’s not a good idea to act on it.

No one should be part of an abusive relationship. It’s just not healthy. If you find yourself in this situation, get out as fast as you can.

When your partner is emotionally abusive

It’s so easy to call each other names. Trust me, I know. It’s like it comes naturally almost. However, it’s not right.

It’s not right to call names or degrade the other person. When your partner begins saying things to you that makes you feel angry sad or depressed, it’s time to end the relationship.

When they begin attacking your weight, looks, intelligence, etc, then it’s time to go. No one on this earth can tell you who you are or what you should be but you.

Emotional abuse can hurt just as bad as physical abuse if it gets worse enough. When this begins happening in your relationship, run for the border.

When your partner is caught cheating

Not only is it a difficult situation when you catch your partner cheating, but it’s even more difficult when you have to figure out what to do from then on.

They may run a few lines on you, “They don’t mean anything to me “and “I’m sorry and I’ll never do it again.”

You’re young and so is your partner. There may come a time when other people may spark their interest and they may want their cake and eat it too.  That’s life.

However, you want someone who will be faithful to you. You don’t want a liar or deceiver. That’s not someone you want to grow with.

If you find your partner cheating, do yourself and them a favor and turn the other cheek. This doesn’t mean that your partner is an evil person. It just means that they were looking for something else.

Breaking up isn’t at all easy; it can be tough to do. However, don’t let your partner run over you. Know when it’s time to work on your relationship and when it’s time to break up.
