Sometimes we are still deeply in love with our partner when we have to let them go. Some people think that this is a bad decision, but you will know in your heart if it is the right one for you.
There is more to a relationship than love, and it’s essential that you realize this at some point so that you can make the right choice. But, how do you know when the time has come for you to go your separate ways? In this article, that’s exactly what we’re going to be looking at so keep reading if you would like to find out more.
‘It’ Has Gone
The first sign that it’s time to say goodbye is that ‘it’ has gone. It is that feeling of knowing you are home, safe and everything in between when you are with your partner. It’s an indescribable feeling that you will only understand if you have felt it. It is often the case that this goes away when you’re in a long-term relationship, and people seem to think that this is normal, but it isn’t. If you have lost it, then it wasn’t meant to be and you need to go and find something new with someone else. It might be hard because you still love them, but you’re not in love with them the way you should be to continue a relationship.
If you’re simply dating, it will be a lot easier to break up as there doesn’t have to be any legal proceedings. However, if you are married, then you need to look into divorce solicitors to handle whatever comes next. It doesn’t have to end badly, as long as you keep being honest with each other.
The Memories Mean More
One of the common problems that couples have is that the memories mean more to them than the reality that they are living. Of course it is okay to treasure the memories between you and your partner, but if you’re more in love with them than the person standing next to you, you’ve got a problem. If you find that this is the case for you, it’s time to let them go and find their happily ever after while you find yours. The thing that a lot of people seem to misunderstand is that when you stay in a relationship where you are not completely happy, you’re not the only one getting hurt. You are preventing your partner from going and finding the person they are meant to be with, and that’s not fair.
We hope that you have found this article helpful, and now see some of the ways that you can know if it is time to let your partner go. There might be a part of you that doesn’t want to do this, and it may turn out to be the most difficult thing that you have ever done in your life, but if it’s the right thing then it’s what you’ve got to do. At the end of the day, you need to do whatever is best for you in the long-term, and letting your partner go might just be it.
