Whether a man or woman, we all need to be loved. We all need to care for someone and vice versa. Human beings crave companionship. However, this need or “craving” for that special someone in our lives makes us to excuse so many things we should not put up with in a relationship. If we find ourselves in such a situation, we should tell ourselves the truth – that we are better off alone than making do with the wrong person.
Here are a few reasons why we may be better off alone:
- The person we truly love is not the person we are with presently.
Circumstances have conspired to bring this about. Question? Is it fair to your current partner if your heart and soul is somewhere else? When you cannot get over your feelings for your ex, it is best you stay single till you sort out your emotions rather than mark time with someone you don’t really love.
- When you are in a relationship but you still feel that you are alone.
You love the person you are with, you are committed to the relationship and are doing all you think you have to do to ensure it is a loving relationship, but the person you are involved with seems not to be bothered. Tell yourself the truth and move on with your life.
- The relationship is toxic.
You should never settle for being in a toxic relationship. Your relationship with your significant other should be a magical one that gives you butterflies in your stomach. You deserve to be with a person who makes your heart skip a beat; who makes your knees weak; who makes you laugh even when you don’t want to smile. Avoid anyone who drains you mentally, physically and emotionally. You should never allow yourself to get stuck in a relationship that crushes your soul. You deserve to be treated with the utmost love and care.
A relationship where everything is an argument, where he or she is always critical about your shortcomings and you simply feel like you cannot do anything right is a toxic one. A relationship should be one that gives you peace of mind, not one that makes you anxious all the time affecting your emotional well-being and peace of mind. Don’t succumb to the kind of thinking that makes you believe that you are better off in an unfulfilling relationship than being single. That’s not true.
- When, for reasons you really can’t put into words, are irritated or uneasy when the person is around you.
This may be a clue that you should end things. We all need time to be alone sometimes, however when the person we think we care about seems to irritate us when they are with us for no reason and it gets to the point that we are dreading spending time with them, going home to them or interacting with them on a regular basis, perhaps it isn’t a bad idea to consider moving on from the relationship.
