Should You Breakup or Make Up?

When does it all end? Is it when someone quits, or is there still hope even after they walk away? It's hard to know when a relationship has ended and gone sour.

In relationships, breaking up is hard because you have invested so much in the other person. Think about what you really want out of a relationship and decide whether or not you want to fight for it before the relationship ends for good.

The decision to break up is not easy and can be harder than you think. Many things go into a relationship, and it's important to think about them before making your final decision. If you have invested so much in the other person, here is some advice if you are debating whether to break up or get back together.

1. Understand Your Feelings

Of course, sometimes people’s lives change. One partner no longer fits into the whole picture, so ending your relationship is good. It's important to remember that there may be times when you need or want to know if your partner still has feelings for you. If they don't, it's time to move on. However, if there is a possibility that the other person still has genuine feelings for you, you should consider whether breaking up is worth it.

∎ Are You Happy?

Start by acknowledging your emotions. Are you feeling sad, frustrated, betrayed, or indifferent? Sometimes, temporary feelings of anger or frustration can cloud our judgment. Before making any hasty decisions, give yourself time to process your feelings. This might seem like an obvious question, but it's an important one. If you're generally unhappy and can't remember the last time you felt joy or satisfaction, it might be time to reassess whether this relationship is right for you.

∎ Identify the Issues

It's crucial to identify the specific problems that are causing your unhappiness. Is it a recurring disagreement? Has there been a breach of trust? A fundamental difference in life goals or values? Understanding the root of the problem is the first step toward addressing it.

∎ Can it Be Resolved?

Some issues can be resolved through communication, understanding, and compromise, while others may be more fundamental and unresolvable. It may be worthwhile if the issue at hand can be worked on.

2. Is there a future?

There are two reasons to save a relationship. First of all, you have to both love each other. But that alone is not enough. You also have to be able to see a future together. For instance, if you have different fundamental beliefs, you may love each other but find that love alone can’t bridge the difference in the future. Think about your future, both with and without your partner.

Can you imagine a future together? Do you share the same values and goals? If you can't envision a future with them, it could be a sign that it's time to part ways. If you can’t see the person in your life in six months, you might as well separate now, even if you have a real bond of affection. And, if this is a serious relationship and you can’t see yourselves in a close, long-term intimate relationship, you will be doing both of you a favor by calling it quits now. That way, you open yourself up to the right one for you. 

∎ Is it worth reconciling?

If you are going to make up, you must reflect on the relationship’s breakup. Why did things go sour? When you have identified the root causes of the split, you can begin to fix things. It may take some time to fix things. While your ex may not be willing to jump back into bed with you, they might be willing to be friends while you work on the relationship. In fact, after a relationship’s breakup, you may not want to start right back where you left off. Instead, take some time to rebuild the romance in your lives.

∎ Listen more than talk

Listen more than you talk. Don't always try to explain your point of view. Try to understand your ex's point of view. It's also important to listen without thinking about what to say in the back. This will help you understand them and give them a much-needed listening ear. In addition, listening to your partner can help you better understand the root of the problem, which will help you and your partner develop better ways to resolve your issues.

∎ Seek Counsel

Consider seeking advice from trusted friends, family, or a professional therapist. They can provide a fresh perspective, support, and guidance. Remember, while advice is helpful, the ultimate decision lies with you.

3. Have fun again

It is important to remember that relationships are about having fun. If you are not having fun, then the relationship will slowly die. The way to have fun is by being playful and doing things that make your partner feel good. Too many times, relationships become too serious. Try occasionally putting the serious issues aside and focus on enjoying each other’s company.

Next, remember to do the things your ex likes. If she likes it when you buy her flowers, get a dozen roses. If he likes it when you go to his football scrimmages, go. This shows that you pay attention to their wants and needs. Show your ex they are on your mind even when you are not around. You can do this by calling or texting them. Call each other by loving or pet names. This brings exclusiveness to the relationship.

In every romantic relationship, there come times when disagreements, disappointments, or unmet expectations challenge the bond between partners. You might wonder whether to break up or make up at these crossroads. This decision is deeply personal and can be daunting. Here are some factors to consider as you navigate this complex terrain:

4. Trust Your Gut

Sometimes, your intuition can guide you. If something feels off in your relationship despite seemingly having everything in place, pay attention to that feeling. Your gut instinct can often lead you to decisions your heart or mind might struggle to make.
