How to know that its time to end your relationship


Seldom do I advise patients or clients to end their connections. I like to believe that in the end, we gain the point of view and vitality important to settle on the choices that serve us best; be that as it may, I’ve upheld innumerable customers throughout the years as their connections unwound, and a few topics appear to develop over and over.

On the off chance that at least one of coming up next is valid for you, it may merit rethinking your relationship status.


Abusive and disrespectful towards you: You truly need to separate from the person who says he adores you, however, is wedded or focused on other ladies. You are only his hang lose in light of the fact that that ship has just cruised, and you should be with somebody who cherishes you in and out.

Dominates you: You are the supervisor of yourself, you assume the responsibility of your life. You truly needn’t bother with somebody who continues ruling and putting you down all the time. Love and care are alright until till transforms into mastery which may prompt oppressiveness as well.

Unavailable for you: Regardless of how bustling your lives get, there are times when you simply need to trust your musings in a man who is paying attention to each arbitrary idea of yours, who just sits with you to watch the sun go down. In the event that he’s always inaccessible, make sure his quality is for all time impaired! You needn’t bother with an accomplice who is never close by, who discloses to you that he cherishes you yet is never accessible to show it.

Over Possessive about you: Possessiveness is alright until the point that it transforms into obsession. You may overlook his consideration named ‘possessiveness’ at first, however, you’ll choke later.




In the event that at least one of these signs impacted you, I urge you to examine your musings and emotions further. Talk with a specialist, trust in a companion, and maintain a diary or journal about your experience. Development and mindfulness are important results of undesirable connections, however, life is too short to even think about remaining in them once we’ve realized whatever it is we’re intended to learn. A poisonous relationship can prompt pressure, sorrow, nervousness, and even restorative issues. So there is absolutely no point in stressing out yourself. Whenever you see these signs, just say ‘Goodbye’.


I will end this topic here. I would love to know your thoughts too. See you again, till then Stay safe & Take Care.

  1. Very well written, completely agree with your thoughts and I would like to add one more reason to end up a relation is when your partner starts hiding things from you and starts lying. Thanks a lot for sharing this blog really informative.

  2. All of the situations above should be huge warning signs to anyone that it may be time to move on. Even more so, if you honestly see no prospects for meaningful change. It’s always hard to contemplate ending a relationship but better to do so sooner rather than later if you can see no hope of things changing.

  3. These are great points, I also think that if your partner is manipulative you must have clear boundaries that may also include ending the relationship

  4. These are absolutely important things to remember in any relationship. The one who continues to be in this relationship will later regret or suffer so it’s better to end it early.

  5. Very well said! Many people suffered toxic relationship just like this. Sometimes letting go is a great way to set you free. Everything you mentioned here are true.

  6. That’s interesting that you rarely recommend it. I feel like sometimes people are just going in different directions and want different things. But all of these reasons are of course legit and understandable.

  7. Such important signs to look out for! I feel like most of these are there to see already early on if you just dare to look – but often we don’t because we’re so into the other person.

  8. This is a really great post. Although I’m in a very happy relationship, I’ve seen so many awful ones. Dominating, abusive behavior in relationships is far more common than people realize. I just hope anyone experiencing behavior like that knows that they deserve better.

  9. I well-written piece, these are important signs to look. I am very happy to share this will others so they too can be aware of this.

  10. I totally agree! These are great points. Sometimes, our head can see the issues but our hearts won’t let us get out of toxic relationships with the hope that things will get better. Great post!

  11. I am the kind of person who can’t even think of ending a relationship but you’re right about one thing, no matter how much you love someone, they have no right to abuse/harm you.

  12. Alexandra Cook

    Every single sign is really important. Every couple should know their limits. Let go if you feel abused or disrespect.

  13. It’s hard when you’re young to discern between love and something else. So many bad decisions happen because we didn’t have someone to teach us the things you’ve mentioned here.

  14. I was in a toxic relationship in my early 20s and my ex displayed all of these signs. I’m so glad that I found the courage and strength to move on from that relationship. I’m now happily married to someone who treats me with the love and respect that I deserve.

  15. These are thoughtful suggestions for safely ending a relationship. I have “been there, done that” in two previous marriages, and it certainly wasn’t easy either time. Yet it was necessary for my own health and well being.

  16. Those are all signs that your relationship has run its course. You should definitely not be in a relationship if they are abusive or unavailable or not take your needs into consideration. It works both ways, so always check to make sure you are doing the same thing. But your partner should at least be considerate of you.

  17. Base on my experience I totally agree with the signs stated above. This article serves a wake-up call for those who are still confused. Thank you for sharing these helpful ideas

  18. This popped up a lot at a young adult session I went to today at church. I think it’s time to go when you get that feeling in the pit of your stomach, and you start hearing that internal voice that says he/she isn’t for you.

  19. Every relationship comes with an expiry date and you need to see when the relationship has become toxic in nature. These are some pointers to keep in mind in every relationship. Everyone deserves to be happy!

  20. Great thoughts! I wish people could understand that a savor relationship is very unhealthy. Most people keeping dragging their relationship despite the fact that it is not worth taking it forward.

  21. I guess some people need help to realise when a relationship they are in has died. I realise it the moment it happens when I stop have feelings for the guy

  22. One of the most saddest moments in a person’s life is the death of a relationship, a once happy union turning sour and hurtful. In the end, we all have to prioritize individual welfare over a toxic relationship. Knowing when to move on is key.

  23. My daughter is in a relationship that she needs to end. He has all of your mentioned traits but she can’t see that. I hope one day she listens to the voice of reason.

  24. I totally agree with this. Especially abusive. Even if it isn’t physical, verbal abuse becomes a lot more common as a relationship goes on. Thanks for sharing.

  25. As someone who recently with through a breakup, this post was extremely helpful. It’s taking me longer than I expected to get over it so Im glad to know that it’s okay to seek professional advice.

  26. We all experience ending up in a relationship. We are old enough to understand that being abusive is not good in a relationship and it must end up.

    If the person neglects you intentionally and does respect you, why still in that relationship? BE selfish and save yourself.

  28. Thank you, important signs to look. My ex partner had all these signs and was very abusive. Would like to add, if he continuously gaslights you and isolate. It’s better to be alone than in a toxic relationship.

  29. Whitney Kutch

    Really great points! It’s so hard sometimes to know what the right decision is, but you did a great job with this walkthrough.

  30. I agree with this for sure!! I also think sometimes it just feels like it’s run it’s course and it’s better to end it then rather than wait it out because you could be missing out on someone great!

  31. Ending a relation is not an easy task, it need a lot of courage. but you can’t take it ahead when your partner neglect you. so ending is better then suffering in it.

  32. i think everyone in a relationship or not should read this post. These are really big signs to look out for. Look after yourself everyone! Self-love first! Thanks for sharing your thoughts!

  33. This is a very important read. It can be hard to leave someone you’ve been with for awhile but if that person is not for you it’s time to end it. Great read thank you for sharing

  34. I am so thankful for a loving marriage and to not have to worry about these things anymore. The Lord has surely blessed me.

  35. Admitting it is time to finish things, to let go is never easy. I think giving up is always very hard. the fear of change, the uncertain future all that is making it even harder to finish anything. with relationship is is even more important. thank you for your hard work making this post

  36. Such a great article to read! Thanks for letting us know all these. Ending every relationship is so hard but definitely, when you feel these things it needs to give up.

  37. Yonnah M at

    I agree with you and a lot of people should read this. I can think of about 5 things to add to this. Sometimes we just don’t know how or when to walk away.

  38. I know way too many people who stay with toxic people despite all the signs because they’re blinded by love. It’s tough to realize when you’re in a relationship because you overlook a lot of flaws and problems

  39. It takes strong will and faith to end a relationship. That was one of the hardest things that I have ever done in my life. I am just glad that I did it because I am now married to a wonderful husband.

  40. blair villanueva

    Relationships are always two-way streets. If one can’t let you in then why still go into? Love yourself first.

  41. I agree with your thoughts on this subject, some people try to ride it out but it is best to just leave abusive relationships.

  42. This is going to help so many people. Too many times, we stay in relationships that are either downright toxic or just don’t work because we’re not sure of our decision.

  43. I totally resonate with this post! It was true, short and to totally to the point. There are alot of reasons to leave a relationship and to be honest, when you any of these situations are happening to you, you have to ask yourself if you’re willing to choose someone over yourself and your real happiness and life growth.

  44. Zero for four. After 32 years of marriage, my wife and I are pretty chill with one another. I believe Kahlil Gibran understood the key to a happy and healthy relationship.

    Love one another, but make not a bond of love:
    Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.
    Fill each other’s cup but drink not from one cup.
    Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf
    Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone,
    Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music.

    Give your hearts, but not into each other’s keeping.
    For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts.
    And stand together yet not too near together:
    For the pillars of the temple stand apart,
    And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other’s shadow.

  45. When respect is gone it becomes abusive. It’s a sure sign that relationship isn’t working anymore. Get out before it’s too late.

  46. It’s hard to end a relationship. It’s also hard to end a relationship that has beaten you down because not only are you giving up on that person you are also going to need help building yourself back up!

  47. Oh wow, this is so strong but I’m glad you wrote about this. Not only romantic relationship but even within friendships, someone being possessive is not good.

  48. Excellent information and advice. I am glad to be married to a supportive man who doesn’t fit into any of these categories.

  49. This is very timely I agree with the list you have mentioned above. Your significant other should add happiness to your life and bring out the best in you. Great reminder for all of us!

  50. I totally agree with these reason. The 3 main ingredients of a great relationship is Trust, Respect and Love.

  51. You point out really interesting and serious matters! I agree with all of them and we shouldn’t take for granted certain attitudes of men just because they say they love us!
