1. The longer you stay in, the harder it is to get out.
Not sure where your relationship is heading? Do you think it may soon be time to call it quits? Consider the following tips when you are deciding whether or not to get out of your current relationship or if you are beginning to lean towards ending the relationship:
I know from my past experiences that I always relived through the past. I wanted to relive those good memories, and because of that, it always gave me a false sense of hope. I thought, "Maybe these memories could happen again if I just stay in a little longer." But most of the time, if things are going downhill and there's no hope for a change, it's time to get out.2. Fearing the "routine" is normal.
What I mean by "fearing the routine" is the thought of not seeing your significant other (ex. texting them, calling them, seeing them, and etc.). People tend to fear a rapid change, and the thought of your significant other suddenly being in your life less, or out of your life completely, is scary. That's normal, and with time (I know, the whole time thing is cliche) it will get better. You just have to give yourself a chance.3. Trying to fix things doesn't always work.
If you're busting your butt in your relationship and nothing is changing, that's a major sign that something is wrong. If your significant other doesn't care to try, or they're trying too and things just don't seem to be working, it might be time to say goodbye.4. History does NOT define a relationship.
I know history can play a huge factor in whether or not someone decides to end a relationship. This should not be a reason to stay in a bad relationship. History, after all, is in the past, and history does have a tendency to repeat itself. If there are more bad things than good in your relationship, it's time to move on. There might have been good things, but like I said, history repeats itself. Plus, no matter who you meet, you will create a new history with him/her. Perhaps if you move on, you will find someone that makes things better than your current relationship. 5. Wandering feelings should not exist in a relationship.
If you feel urges to flirt because you feel like you're not receiving affection or vital emotions from your significant other, I would highly suggest talking things out. If things don't change and the urges still remain, just remember that if a person is tempting enough, urges could very easily turn into actions, and your actions could turn into regret or a lack of regret with continuous actions. If you just want to flirt because you're naturally a flirtatious person, cut that shit out.6. Breaks can help in the decision-making process.
If you take a break from your significant other and find yourself happier than being in the actual relationship, it's time to move on.What are some other tips that you would add to this list?
