Stay or Go

How do you know when enough is enough? When dating someone you really like and care about one of the toughest decisions you will have to make, is whether to stay or go when you begin to feel that the relationship may have run its course.

One sign that it may be time to throw in the towel is when the bad things in the relationship begin to outweigh the good things. For example, if arguments occur more often than usual, for instance every day, this may cause the relationship to become unhealthy for all parties involved. And believe me when I say that no one benefits from staying in a relationship with someone who only brings out the worst in them.

Some may argue that fighting in a relationship is a good thing because it means that there is still passion between you and your partner. But I think more often than not, fighting will tear you apart, and you may even end up despising the person that once meant the world to you. It truly is a thin line between love and hate, and once that line is crossed, you say and do things that you can’t take back causing more damage than you’d ever imagined.

Another indication that the relationship may be nearing its end, is when there are no more words to be said at all. When your days and nights together are filled with complete and utter silence, it’s almost worse than arguing, because at that point, you have nothing left to say to one another. The thrill and the passion really are gone, and once again no one is benefiting from staying in a relationship that has no life left in it.

We all know that breaking up is hard to do, but sometimes it’s necessary. So my advice to all who find themselves faced with the dilemma of staying together or moving on, is to ask yourself these simple questions, does the good still outweigh the bad? And if you stay together, will you end up hating each other more than you love each other? You’d be surprised to find that by ending the relationship, you just might be able to save the friendship.

    I completely agree. It’s no point in staying in a relationship when the bad begins to out weigh the good. It is emotionally draining, and a relationship should add to your life, not take away from it.
