Deciding to break up with someone is rarely easy. It's made even harder when you are breaking up with someone you love. No matter what your friends or family tell you, ending it with a significant other only comes when you realize that this person is more of a negative than a positive in your life.
Looking at the big picture and how your partner impacts you can allow you to make a wise and thought out decision. While it may be hard to see at the time, there are quite a few reasons to break up with someone even if you love them.
Please note that some of these reasons vary in severity and some could indicate a pattern of abuse. If you or someone you know is in an abusive relationship please seek help or call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-7233.
1. You can’t trust them.
Trust is crucial in a relationship.
No matter how much you love someone, you need to be able to trust them. Trust is absolutely paramount in a relationship.
According to a study from Northwestern University and Redeemer University College in Ontario, Canada, those who have trust their partners are more likely to be in long-term and successful relationships, proving just how important that trust is.
If they keep giving you reasons to second guess their motives or respect for you, then it's time to end it.
