While a lot of people think being in a relationship is crucial, being single is just fine if that’s what makes you happy. It’s better to be alone with yourself than to be stuck with someone who is only dragging you down in the end.

If you’re in a relationship and you’re not happy, getting out of that relationship might be your best option whether you want to admit it or not. Sometimes we stay in relationships because we’re comfortable within reason or because we’re afraid to be alone and honestly, that should not be the case. We should be leaving relationships that are tearing us apart, period.

Below I am going to go over some of the more common signs that indicate your relationship is what is causing your unhappiness. If these signs are present you need to sit down with your partner and really talk things through, if calling it quits will help you better yourself overall and promote a positive wellbeing, do that. You don’t have to stay with someone who isn’t treating you correctly.

7 Signs Your Relationships Is Making You Unhappy:

1. You feel trapped in the relationship more than anything else.

Rather than feeling like you’re both together for a reason you more or less feel like there is no way out. Being with this person seems like something you have to do instead of something you want to do. You shouldn’t ever feel forced to stick by someone’s side.

2. You’re walking on eggshells when you’re with your partner.

You feel like your partner criticizes everything you do or say. When they come home you do not know what mood they’re going to be in or how things are going to go over. It’s all up in the air and you’re most likely quite sick of it.

3. Getting along is becoming harder and harder to do.

You and your partner are on different pages in this book of life and getting along just doesn’t seem to happen as of late. You’re always arguing and fighting. You probably find yourself questioning whether sticking around is even worth it anymore, right?

4. You don’t really want to spend time with your partner.

You would much rather spend your time with friends and family over your partner. You find yourself being more and more withdrawn and there are reasons for that. The distance before you should not be ignored.

5. You’re not comfortable being yourself around your partner.

If you can’t be yourself around your partner why be with him/her in the first place? When you’re in a relationship you should feel comfortable and content with your partner. The two of you need to be able to be open with one another.

6. You feel like your relationship is literally draining you.

Toxic relationships overall are very draining and if you’re in one chances are you feel like you’re losing your mind. The more time you spend with your partner the more drained you are. Is that something you want to keep dealing with?

7. You’re not attracted to your partner anymore.

When that spark disappears, your attraction to your partner will too. You will find yourself wanting something more elsewhere and when that time has come why stick around? It’s not right by anyone involved.
