Romantic relationships are supposed to make us happy, right? Well, unfortunately, it isn’t always like that. As a matter of fact, many people are stuck in unhappy relationships with no way of getting out. Comfort and safety are the most likely culprits for people staying in unhappy relationships. This, of course, doesn’t make things better.
Although it’s a hard choice to make, sometimes life needs us to do the hardest thing. Don’t you deserve an exciting relationship that will put a smile on your face? You deserve someone who loves you back as much as you love them. Without fun and happiness, relationships are worth nothing. Don’t live in a cycle of misery – if you notice that your relationship is making you unhappy, simply quit.
Below you can see a few signs that your relationship is making you really unhappy.
You’re Just Depressed
Life has its ups and downs so feeling depressed in a fast-moving world isn’t that uncommon. However, those depressive episodes come and go – if you’re depressed all the time, it might be time to reconsider your relationship.
Having a bad day is one thing, but if you’re been feeling blue and not even your partner helps cheer you up, it’s time to ask the hard questions. Is your relationship making you unhappy? If the answer is yes, it’s time to move on.
You’d Rather Spend Time with Friends
If you find yourself that you’d rather spend time with friends or family instead of your partner, it’s time to reconsider your priorities. Sure, partners can get fed up with each other and seek a hang out with friends sometimes. This, however, must not turn into a constant.
If you’re just tired of your partner and you want to spend your time with friends or family instead, your relationship might be making you very unhappy.
No Sexual Attractions
This is one of the most worrying signs of an increasingly unhappy relationship. Partners should be able to attract each other physically (sexually). If that spark is gone, you’re probably very unhappy with things.
This is a big problem you need to figure out. A happy relationship requires proper and regular intimacy, both physically and emotionally. If you don’t feel sexually attracted to your partner anymore, you’ve got a problem on your hands to talk about.
You Imagine a Happier Life Without Your Partner
Sit down and think hard – will your life be happier without your partner? If it seems like it, it may be time to quit.
Imagining a happy life without your partner is a sign that you may be in the wrong relationship. It’s a sign that you need to get out of it before it’s too late. You should imagine a bright future with your partner. If you imagine a future where you’re happy on your own or with someone else, it’s time to quit.
You Rarely Enjoy Your Time Spent Together
Partners should enjoy the time they spend together. Whether it’s Netflix and chill or just enjoying a glass of wine and talking about stuff, you should cherish those moments. If the magic is gone and you’d rather be elsewhere, you need to re-evaluate your relationship.
Yes, it will be hard, and yes, it might be scary. However, you don’t want to get stuck in a relationship with someone you don’t enjoy.
You Chase Past Feelings
Caught yourself chasing past feelings far too often? That’s a problem you need to address. Reminiscing about the past is great, but doing it too often may be a sign that you’re unhappy. Talk to your partner before things take an ugly turn – it’s the right thing to do.
