It’s common to believe that relationships end when one or two people in the relationship fall out of love with each other, or when something dramatic and terrible happens that tears the couple apart. But this is not always the case. Sometimes, we can decide to break up with someone that will still love, although it is one of the most difficult and confusing. Here are some legitimate reasons to leave someone you still love.
For starters, if the person you love still has some soul-searching to do for themselves. Falling in love can make us feel lost, and can seriously influence our identity. If your partner lacks self-awareness or direction, you may want to let them figure out that journey themselves.
Secondly, if you’re not ready to commit, then you should not have to force yourself to be ready. Do the two of you a favor and end the relationship and commitment scares you right now. Staying with the person will only cause more pain in the long term.
Both people in the relationship need to love themselves. If one of you lacks self-love, it can cause a lot of problems to the relationship and can be very unhealthy. If your partner does not feel good about themselves, they will always be looking for approval and validation from you, which can be really tiring and can place a lot of pressure on the relationship.
And when it comes to timing? If the timing doesn’t feel right, then it’s most likely not right. Time has it’s own agenda, and you can force it into fitting it exactly with yours right now.
Most importantly, when you’re not being treated with the same love back, then you deserve more and you must believe that. It’s better to be alone then to be treated poorly.
It is one of the most difficult things to do to leave someone that you still love deeply. You must try and truly believe that everything happens for a reason, and if you are really meant to be together, then you will find your way back to each other.
