10 Quotes On When It’s Time To Move On From A Relationship

Moving on from a relationship can be one of the hardest things to do. And that’s because a lot of times you don’t know if it’s really time to move on. That’s why we present 10 quotes on when it’s time to move on from a relationship.

We share these 10 quotes on when it’s time to move on from a relationship to help you make the best decision. These 10 quotes will provide valuable insight as you make evaluations on whether to leave or not.

1) DON’T STAY IN A RELATIONSHIP WHERE YOU’RE NOT RESPECTED

A foundation to any relationship is respect. Therefore, if there’s no respect there’s no stable foundation. And when the foundation isn’t stable everything built on it is subject to come tumbling down.

So if the respect element isn’t there then the relationship is not working out or is not going to work out. In the beginning the lack of respect may even be overlooked, but at some point it will be addressed. But by then it might be too late.

Go into a relationship with respect as a piece of the foundation or run the risk of running out the house as it crumbles.

2) HUMANS ARE BIOLOGICALLY WIRED TO BECOME ATTACHED TO WHAT’S FAMILIAR. WHICH EXPLAINS WHY WE HOLD ON TO RELATIONSHIPS EVEN WHEN THEY’RE BAD FOR US

People stay in relationships that they know aren’t working for various reasons. One of them being the familiarity of it.

Though it’s not working they convince themselves that it’s better than starting over, getting a new partner and then getting to know them. Afterall, their current partner is familiar with their insecurities, both physically and emotionally. 

So why go somewhere and start again is the logic. Though there might be some truth to this, it’s not the case for everyone. Some people would be better off and starting over than staying in the current relationship that they are in.

3) IF YOU’RE FOCUSED MORE ON CHANGING THEIR HABITS THAN BETTERING THE RELATIONSHIP AS A WHOLE, IT MAY BE TIME TO GO

It’s important to note that you can’t change people. People change when they want to change. When they make a conscious decision that they want to change.

If you believe that you’re going to change someone and keep putting so much effort and time into changing someone and their habits you’re going to lose sight of the relationship.

The changes that a person needs to make has to be an individual and volunteer choice. When they change, the relationship changes. Until then, you’re putting needless time into a relationship that is likely not to work.

4) IT’S TIME TO GO IF YOU’RE THE ONLY ONE WHO VALUES THE RELATIONSHIP

If you’re the only one who values the relationship. You’re the only one putting in effort to make it work, then it’s time to go. A relationship can only work when both people are willing to work to make it work. It’s that simple.

So long as only one person is putting in the work, it won’t work. It’s best to move on from such a relationship.

5) NEVER MAKE SOMEONE YOUR PRIORITY WHILE YOU’RE ONLY AN OPTION FOR THEM

A sure sign that it’s time to move on from a relationship is when you become an option, rather than a priority.

If someone is making you feel like you’re simply an option for them then they no longer value you as you should be valued. Prioritizing someone who only considers you an option is foolish. Don’t tolerate that. It’s likely best to move on.

6) ALWAYS REMEMBER, IF IT DRAINS YOU, IT’S NOT FULFILLING YOU

Picture a cup riddled with holes being poured water into. No matter how much you pour into it the cup will never fill up. It’ll constantly be draining.

That is exactly what happens in a relationship that does not fulfill you. Like that cup, you will always be draining.

Don’t forget, If it drains you, it does not fulfill you. Key takeaway is to fulfill you. That is, to fill you up.

7) FOR A RELATIONSHIP TO WORK, MORE THAN JUST LOVE IS REQUIRED

Sure love set the whole relationship in motion and kept it going for some time. But at some point you realize that more than just love is necessary to keep the relationship going.

Other requirements need to accompany love for the relationship to work. For example, trust, respect, accountability and the like. 

Not to mention emotional requirements, financial requirements, among others.

Love is beautiful and is to be cherished, but it will take much more than just love to keep the relationship in good and prosperous standing.

8) SOMEONE WILL USE YOU WHEN YOU’RE IN LOVE AND ONCE YOU DON’T WANT TO BE USED ANYMORE, THEY’LL SAY YOU DON’T LOVE THEM

When you’re in love, especially early on, you’re willing to do whatever or most of what your partner asks of you. However, once it gets to a point that, for whatever the reason may be, that you don’t want to comply with every request, things might get tricky.

At this point your partner may start using gaslighting tactics to make you feel like you don’t love them because you are no longer following through with their commands and requests.

Be very mindful of this tactic. Remember, just because you don’t do all the things that you used to do anymore, it’s not because you don’t love the person anymore. Maybe it’s just you setting some boundaries that you should have set previously.

9) SEEING SOMEONE SLOWLY LOSE INTEREST IN YOU IS PROBABLY ONE OF THE WORST FEELINGS EVER

Seeing someone lose interest in you is going to hurt. Especially when you still feel deeply for that person. However, it may be better to come to agreements to move on from each other before feelings get deeper and no solution is available.

It’s a hard thing to accept, but if the person no longer has feelings for you, it’s best to move on. And the sooner you do so, the sooner the recovery process will start.

10) THEY NEVER SEE WRONG IN THEIR ACTIONS BUT ALWAYS POINT OUT YOURS

This is definitely a sure sign that it’s time to move on. If you’re in a relationship and the person always points out your faults and mishaps, but never sees their own, the best thing may be to start looking for the exit door.

This is because you can’t reach people that think operate in such a way. So much so that even if they were to ever see wrong in their actions they’re likely to turn around and blame you for causing them to take such actions.

CONCLUSION
