As women it is easy for us to get caught up in the rapture of love, even when there is no more love to be found. As a therapist and relationship coach, I hear many women fully recognize the potential of what their relationships could be, while simultaneously neglecting the fact their relationship was never healthy to begin. Pondering if it is time to move on from a relationship can be agonizing.
So here are 3 signs that it is time to move on:
1. There is no communication. Communication is the corner stone to every relationship; so if you are finding that everything you say and even the things you do not say leads to an argument, it is time to move on. Of course every relationship goes through rough times; however, if you are finding that you can no longer express yourself or you feel like you are no longer being heard then it is time to, move on.
2. You start to forget who you are. Yes, as women it is easy for us to get lost in our roles as wife, girlfriend, and spouse and forget who we are as individuals. So if you lost sight of your goals, your values, friends, family and feel alienated like you are all alone, it is time to move on.
3. The relationship is not growing. If you find that your relationship has not matured and you do not have a deeper connection with your spouse than when you first started to date, it is time to move on.
It is easy to get complacent in relationships and endure the frustrations of an unhealthy relationship. However, a relationship can only be as good as the two people involved. So if you find yourself suffering and your personal growth stifled, move on. Do not get so engrossed in your role that your forget your responsibility to love yourself.
