Even if you haven't yet taken steps to break up, if you've been considering it long and hard - it's time. People who are in healthy, happy relationships consider ways to work through hard times. If you've tried that and the only solution you can come up with is to end it, that is likely the best answer.

On one hand, you could be in a relationship with someone who truly is not a good match for you for whatever reason. Being the kind woman that you are, you may have considered various ways to get the love back to the way it was when you both first met and are ust out of ideas. Nothing is working, so it's time to move on.

On the other hand, it could be that YOU are the one who is struggling with being a compassionate, loving, respectful partner.

If you're having trouble managing things like your passive aggressive behavior or invading your significant other's privacy, maybe the break up would give the other person a chance to get some space from you. This would also give you time to step back and reevaluate whether or not you want to be in a relationship with someone at all, and consider what kind of partner you want to be if you do decide to date again.

Dating someone should be a voluntary decision that you're happy about the vast majority of the time. While an occasional bad mood or traumatic event can knock a relationship out of whack from time to time, love, respect, and communication will always bring you two back to where you started (and maybe even a better, stronger place). Keep an eye out for these three signs, and never hesitate to remove yourself from a situation that hurts you physically, emotionally, or mentally.
