If you think that your relationship has gone sour and the only solution is a breakup, you might not be right. Ask yourself first a few questions and also reason out things with your partner and then decide what would be better for you.
Here are some questions that you should ask before ending a relationship:
Have you and your partner moved apart because of the lack of time?
With the hectic life and inflexible time schedules it is quite natural that couples drift apart. If this is your case and you want to end the relationship due to time constraints, then sit and sort it out. In case your partner gives you the same excuses that he/she has been giving since then, it’s time to move ahead. But, if this is a temporary situation and your partner is genuinely busy, then wait and discuss and give your partner some time to work out things.
Deep in your heart do you think for the betterment of your relationship?
If you are still wishing that your relationship would improve despite the fact that you are facing problems, then try to look out for a solution. Going through a break up can be difficult. If you still long to be together then stay back and talk to your partner for the betterment.
Has your trust been broken?
This is one of the most common reasons for ending a relationship. Get to terms, life moves fast and there are many people who tend to lose interest soon, very few are committed for a long-term relationship. If your partner has cheated on you then ask yourself the following questions: Do you love him/her so much that you can forgive their mistake? Will you be able to start the relationship on a new note? Does your partner have a habit of lying to you? Would you be able to develop the same trust on your partner again?
Do you lack communication?
If you and your partner are in a long distance relationship or cannot meet up frequently then is it the communication gap that is pushing you towards the break up? Usually lack of communication leads to misunderstandings and as a result lead to break ups. So talk to your partner about the communication problems before taking a decision, effective communication can make things work out for the better.
Are family issues the problem?
It is seen that family has a big part in your choice of your partner. In case your family is the cause of your break up then reason out these: Would you be able to live without your partner? Are you willing to leave your family because of your partner? Will talking to both the ends make things work out?
Is the missing spark in your relationship the reason for breakup?
In today’s life everyone is loaded with responsibilities and has a tough life both at personal as well as professional fronts. If these issues are responsible for the missing charm in your relationship, and you are heading to a break up then look behind and think whether you can restore it. Talk! This is the best solution. Make your partner well special and wanted, small things can make a big difference and help you from falling out of your relationship.
Ask these questions before you head towards a break up. Bear in your mind that breaking up from a person whom you have loved is not easy. You can get emotionally broken and later on regret on your decision. So, move in the right direction and reason out things before taking any drastic step.
