- Well, we’re here to extend our helping hands.
IT’S ABOUT TIME?
Here are a few signs that may indicate it’s time to
call it quits:
1. You guys are drifting apart
And none of you are doing anything about it. It’s the big ass elephant in the room. After coming back home you hardly ever talk or do anything together. Sharing about each other’s day is long gone in the rear view mirror. This starts getting worse when the intimacy level also drops dead. You both know it’s off but you guys keep things going as it is because honestly, you both don’t even care.
2. You are tired of trying
If the heading of this article made you click it chances are you already have seen the signs and have tried your best to make it work. You have given it your everything- time and effort. But no matter what it just seems useless. You are just tired of trying to make this bad marriage work which you know has already stopped working ages ago.
3. You’d rather be alone
You cherish the time you get on your own. For years (Or days) you have been joined at the hip with this person you no longer can see in the eye. So anytime you get for yourself is the time you keep close to your heart. If the thought of divorce gives you the giggles, you may want to turn that thought into action.
4. You have cheated
Once you or your partner cheated in the relationship it’s clear that there is nothing you can do to solve this scenario. It’s better that you take the big D step and get over it.
- While you are at it do get yourself checked for STDs.
5. Depression hit you
After trying and working out your marriage, it’s possible for your mental health to take a hit. If the thought of divorce and breaking of your marriage leads to personal suffering then it’s better to take a step back and take action to avoid going in the deeper hole. Put your health above all else as peace is the only battle that will always be worth fighting for.
6. No respect
There is no respect in the relationship. Either one of you or both of you has stopped looking at each other in the respecting light. When this happens and one partner consistently feels dismissed and rejected, you’re not in a healthy relationship.
- Leave the toxicity behind and move on.
7. There is no future
Remember at the beginning of future you guys used to see yourself as one unit and planned as such. But now all your future endeavors are just for you (You have mentally divorced the person). You are seeing yourself alone in your future goals. if you can’t see how your spouse fits into your life, do yourself a favor and find someone who does.
8. Seeking professional help haven’t helped
You gave it a try. But if even after seeking couple therapy there is no scope for a better life as one team, then there is no doubt that you need to let this toxic relationship go.
- There is no better time than the present.
There exists a lot of stigma and hoopla around divorce. Don’t deny yourself happiness for the sake of society. If your inner voice or guts tell you then you better leave. You can choose either to crawl or to drag yourself to the end of this road but you better get to the end of this road. Buckle up, honey.
