Most people know that keeping a relationship healthy and alive is truly hard work. But if you're not happy in that relationship and not sure whether it is time to let go, here are some telltale signs that demonstrate that the relationship is probably not healthy and it may be time to move on. This shows at least seven factors you should look at.
Do you truly want the same things in a relationship? Every couple will disagree about things, but the difference is if your life goals are different, then that may be unsurmountable. For instance, if one of you wants children and the other one absolutely hates the idea. This could be a deal breaker. Further, you should never go into this situation thinking you are going to change the other person’s mind. That is a recipe for disaster.
You are the one who is constantly trying to make your partner happy and they don’t reciprocate. If you are the one doing the heavy lifting in a relationship, maybe you should ask the question why or have a real heart to heart discussion to see whether this is someone who has gotten lazy or complacent or there truly isn’t a desire to keep this relationship going.
The rest of this article demonstrates several other items you should look out for. If you feel that you are in this place or that you are not sure, maybe it's time to have a discussion with a family specialist or a therapist to see whether this is where you should be.
The family specialists that are part of the collaborative process are amazing individuals. They can truly help people work through conflict and identify problems and help them to seek resolution to continue their relationship or an amicable dissolution if necessary.
If you or someone you know is going through a difficult time or a conflict within their primary relationship, please feel free to contact my offices to learn about the collaborative process and our team of professionals who are here to help you.
