In a relationship, there is always that fleeting or lingering moment when we think that that person is the one. So we do our best to keep the relationship and nurture it. However, there are times that things will not go our way.
We have to be honest and identify signs if the relationship is still functional. It is crucial that we recognize the signs and move on before it will waste a lot of our time. Here are the tell-tale signs that the relationship is over:
- Irreconcilable differences: You are unique and so is your partner. The difference will add spice to the relationship however, if things are getting difficult and compromise is no longer an option, it is time that you move on. Love and patience are not the answer.
- Broken trust: Trust is irreparable. While you can forgive the misdeed, you will never forget the betrayal of trust. If the trust has been betrayed more than once, there is no use pursuing the relationship.
- Cheating: Cheating is never okay no matter the circumstances and the struggles. Unfortunately, many cases of splitting here in Singapore are attributed to cheating. Agreeing on an exclusive relationship means commitment and if the partner is not keen on fulfilling it, cheating will surely prevail.
- Bored: If you are getting bored and you are no longer interested with the circumstances, it is time to leave. It is easier this way than to spend more time together and eventually realize it is just a waste of time.
Breaking up is painful but you need to know that it can be a blessing in disguise. Remember that if a door closes, another will open. You will surely find the one, just be patient.
