If you’re having troubles being in long-term relationships, apart from wrong partners, maybe you’re ending relationships for all the wrong reasons. After all, not all wrong reasons lead to break up, and not every problem is insurmountable. Some of us understand that the relationship has run its course, but we still giving our best to salvage it before we call it quits.
Here are six terrible reasons to break up with your partner:
1. You had a big argument with your spouse. What’s a relationship with fights and arguments? Having a conflict with your partner should never be the sole reason to break up with somebody; in fact, you should be together and try to the best of your abilities to resolve the differences. Something small and petty issues like, ‘he always keeps the toilet seat up’ might trigger serious fights. So, keep an eye on that, and refrain or avoid doing or saying things that can kick start your partner’s anger machine. Most people agree that resolving conflicts in relationships make it more resilient and last longer.
2. He or she doesn’t like everything you like. Not two people are same, so does each other’s interests. So, what your partner don’t like pizza, or you don’t like to watch sports, that’s not the reason to split up. In fact, having your own things to do and interests to pursue, and give your relationship some variety and space it needs. Relationships end only if two of you don’t share any common interests.
3. Your partner finds other people hot. Just because both of you are a couple, doesn’t mean he or she won’t be attracted to attractive men and women. We are surrounded with beautiful people, heck; they’re also on TV, magazines, billboard, etc. So, it’s impossible for you to keep your partner shielded from attractive people. Instead, find a better way to manage it. Individuals who are in committed relationships know that if they don’t check out other people in public, it could jeopardize their relationship.
4. The relationship doesn’t always make you feel happy. Love is an element in a relationship. Relationships exist not to make you happy; it is a source of your happiness. It’s not a magical elixir or drug that you keep you smiling forever, or prevent you from getting sad ever. Your partner is obviously a source of support in your life, but ultimately it’s you who is responsible for your own happiness.
5. Your partner doesn’t do as you say. Your partner isn’t your pet, who will do or act as you order it to do. Your partner has his or her views, opinions, interests, way to do things and lifestyle. Maybe you dislike your partner hanging out with their friends too much, or you don’t like to hear her opinions on certain issues, and so on. If this is the situation, then the problem is yours, not your significant other. So, don’t quit the relationship, and try to find common ground with your partner.
6. You have little time for a relationship. We know your job or career is imperative to you, and your life will collapse if you don’t dedicate enough time to it. But, that doesn’t mean that you don’t have some time to spend on one of the most important and greatest pleasures in life, a loving relationship. So, divide yours equally on all tasks and activities in your daily life, including your relationship, which makes it even more worthwhile.
