FOUR SIGNS THAT A RE­LA­TION­SHIP CAN’T BE REBUILT

YOURS (UK) - - Good To Know -

1 LACK OF CON­FI­DENCE AND SELF-ESTEEM

Do you find your con­fi­dence and self-esteem are lower when you spend time with this per­son? Do you feel worse – not bet­ter – when you are with them? “Some­times re­la­tion­ships can be­come toxic and will never bring you long-term hap­pi­ness or growth,” says Jen­nifer.

2 BAD VIBES

Do you find your en­ergy low­ers and you feel sapped when you’re around this per­son? If so, this can be a sign it’s time to end the re­la­tion­ship. Our bod­ies are very clever at giv­ing us signs that all is not well. “If we feel drained around a cer­tain some­one, or have a feel­ing of dread when we think about them, it may be time to cut ties,” says Jen­nifer.

3 OVER­WHELM­ING FEEL­INGS OF HURT

“Some­times the hurt can feel too much,” says Jen­nifer. “Recog­nis­ing when to end a re­la­tion­ship is hard and there can be a mix of emo­tions. Ask your­self whether you can see this per­son in your fu­ture and if they’ll be a pos­i­tive in­flu­ence in your life. If no, then it may be time to call it a day.”

AN IN­ABIL­ITY TO LET GO OF THE PAST

The be­trayed party may con­tin­u­ally pun­ish their part­ner, bring­ing up the be­trayal in ar­gu­ments. “Like all blame and crit­i­cism, this will lead to bit­ter­ness and re­sent­ment,” says Hay­ley. Equally, if one or both par­ties con­tin­ues to lie and break the ground rules, this will de­stroy any chance of re­build­ing trust.
