When do you know it’s time to let go? Relationships start out really great and there are butterflies, roses, and lots of hugs and kisses, and sometimes it turns into lying, cheating, dark clouds, and fights, but you don’t want to let go because you invested the time in the relationship and with the will of you and your partner rainy days can turn into sunny days. But what do you do when things don’t change? Do you keep on trying or do you let go?
I guess, I can say that there is only so much that you can do, sometimes things aren’t meant to be and sometimes they’re not meant to be for the moment. Letting go doesn’t always mean letting go forever, but breaking away from a partner can mean growth on both end. With every relationship you learn what you do and don’t want, and what makes you happy and what doesn’t. I think that relationships are, if anything, a learning experience. If we can’t take the person with us, then we can take life lessons and new self-discoveries.
Staying in a relationship may seem easier than getting out, but hurting everyday is way harder than hurting for a few months. I guess, what’s the point of staying in something that is making you miserable? The point is: you think you can make it better. And you can, but does the other person want to make it better? It takes two to tango, but if you or your partner isn’t up for the dance then you’ll be out of sync, no matter how much one of you tries to lead.
I’m not saying that you shouldn’t try to preserve your relationship, but, I’m wondering, when do you stop trying? Because I think and know that relationships need effort and patience, I don’t think that you should ditch the relationship because things get rocky, but when things are constantly going wrong, it’s time to reexamine the situation. Decide if it’s you, is it him, is it both of you, or if it’s just not right. Then make the decision that will make you happiest because in the end all that matters is that you are happy.
