ARE YOU IN A DEAD END RELATIONSHIP?

Dead End Sign

Time moves fast when you’re having fun. It moves just as fast when you’re not having fun too, at least in a relationship that is. Why do people stay in a relationship that isn’t going anywhere? More than likely, it’s hard to figure out if it’s a bump in the road, or if this is really a dead end street. Before you look up, another meaningless year has passed. A lot of couples try staying semi-happy together, versus dealing with the temporary unhappiness of being single.

Once you’ve gotten used to being with someone, it’s hard to let go. No one likes their world shook up, or a change in pace. All relationships of course, take hard work. However, if all you’re doing is fighting all the time or just not getting along, it just might be time to call it quits. These are signs your relationship might be heading down a dead end:

1. Constant bickering and fighting – You’re both unable to communicate without arguing.

2. Boredom with each other – Even in the same room with each other, there’s either complete silence or you’re distracted with social media, television, cell phone, or computer.

3. Different goals – You’re both unable to find a middle ground you’re both happy with.

4. No time spent together – You’re always committing to anything BUT the relationship.

5. Absence of respect – You’ve told your partner you constantly feel disrespected and your partner doesn’t see this as a problem and continues to disrespect you.

So what do you do? You’re tired of spending countless hours being unhappy and waiting for the next problem to arise. Keep 5 things in mind that helps with making a decision:

1. Allow yourself to be happy, even if that means being single.

2. Ensure your finances are together.

3. Set new goals, and work towards attaining all of them.

4. Change something about yourself you’ve been wanting to try.

5. Spend more time with friends and family.

Things will get better in time. Not every relationship is heading towards a dead end because you’ve been on a bumpy road for a while. The best thing to do is decipher if this is an ongoing  problem or if it has recently started and needs to be addressed immediately. There are many ways that can help save a relationship, but both parties must be willing to work the issues together.

Loving my DID’s,
