Going from fight to fight is a surefire sign that something has gone horribly wrong at the core of your relationship and neither of you are managing to address it.
Maybe you’re unwilling to admit that you were wrong.
All too often there are times when we feel obligated to say all the right things and go through all the motions but we never actually let things move past it.
Many times, toxic partners will withhold their forgiveness as a means of revenge or control.
Here’s how to recognize that your relationship is already over and it’s time to let it go.
Communication is vital for a relationship’s success.
The fact that you’re not yelling doesn’t mean that you’re avoiding a fight or that you’re their emotional superior.
“U mad bro” doesn’t work online and it has no place in relationships.
In practice though, it doesn’t matter if you can coexist in companionable silence or if you chatter away like a pair of extroverted cockatoos as long as you can express your needs clearly to one another.
After all, nobody’s a mind-reader and expecting your partner to just be able to divine your wants and needs is a one-way trip to frustration and disappointment.
However, there’s a difference between communicating and “filling the air with noise”.
But not every relationship ends with a loud and dramatic climax. After all, it can be hard to pull the trigger on that break up, even when you know it needs to happen.
However, there comes a point when everyone needs to realize that the patient is dead and there’s no amount of CPR, couple’s therapy, lingerie, or weekend getaways that can bring it back.
Other times, they simply will perpetually hold the relationship hostage as a method of ensuring “good” behavior.
