7. Youโ€™re Just Not Happy

Relationships are not always simple or easily explained in terms of good or bad. But sometimes the thought of potentially ending a relationship can be determined by just one very basic question: Are you happy? Not every date night will be magical, not every encounter breathtakingly romantic. Two people can disagree. Two people can say things they donโ€™t mean, fight and forgive each other. But when considering the long term outlook of your relationship, you should be happy.

If you find that youโ€™re unhappy and have felt that way for some time, you might consider ending your relationship and focusing on yourself for a while.

Despite what Danielle Steel paperbacks or cliche romantic comedies might have you believe, relationships are not always easy. And breaking up can be harder still. But with regards to your own happiness, hopes and dreams, personal safety and mental well being, a relationship should always be secondary. If your partner conflicts, negates, sabotages or threatens any of these factors, ending the relationship is the best thing you can do for yourself. What other deciding factors have you encountered that had you ending a relationship?
