There are many things in life that we could move on from in order to live a fuller, healthier and better life. Whether it be a family member, a relationship, a toxic job - no matter what, there are always signs that enough is enough - and in today's article, I will be discussing the signs that it is in fact time to move on.
The first sign that I want to talk about today is they keep giving you reasons to not trust them, over and over again. We aren't talking about just once or twice, this is always repeating. When you find that you just have lost all trust in someone, and it keeps getting broken, that is a huge red flag, and it is definitely time to move on.
The second sign today that it is time to move on is you are constantly feeling bad about yourself. Whether this is in your relationship, or a boss at work, or even a friend - if you find that you always feel worse about yourself after you have been around them than before, you need to move on to some place where you can be appreciated. It is time to let go and move on.
The third sign today is you have realized that over time, whether it be a job, friend or relationship, your self esteem has dropped. You used to think higher of yourself than you do now. You feel unappreciated, taken for granted, looked at like an object or even feel worthless. This has taken it's toll on you, and you have lost your self esteem. This is a sign you need to get out of that situation or relationship, make a clean cut and move on with your life. This is a huge sign that it is time to move on.
The fourth sign that it is time to move on is the fact that you can't even remember the last time you were genuinely happy. This isn't you just being a drama queen - this is real. No job or relationship should make you feel depressed and miserable. You need to be somewhere where you can be yourself, where you can be happy, where you don't feel that you are walking on egg shells. So if you can't even remember the last time you were genuinely happy, it is time to move on so you can find that happiness which you deserve.
The fifth sign today is the fact the relationship isn't balanced, it isn't 50:50 at all. You find that you have to do everything, you have to work really hard while they do nothing, you have to initiate everything from communication, to dates, to everything in general. They aren't pulling their weight, and they haven't in awhile. You have talked about this before, but nothing changes. If you find that you are the only one pulling the weight of the relationship, it is time to cut that cord and move on!
The sixth sign today is the fact you just don't feel like your opinion matters, or that you aren't allowed to even express your opinion. You just feel silenced - like you aren't wanted at all. Whether it is a job, relationship or friendship, if you feel like your opinion doesn't matter, your feelings don't matter, and that you aren't even allowed to express them, again, this is a red flag - it is time to get out of that toxic relationship. You are a person, you have feelings, you have an opinion and it ALL matters. Move on!
The seventh sign today that it is time to move on is the fact promises made to you are never followed through with. You are promised change. You are promised a lot of things - and when it comes down to it, the promise is always broken in one way or another. This all goes back to trust and respect. The foundation of all relationships. If you find that all the promises made to you just end up broken, move on. You deserve to be with someone you can trust fully, someone who can keep a promise and their word.
The last sign today that it is time for you to move on is that they are trying to change you into someone that you just aren't. They want to mold you into the perfect version of you in their eyes. No - don't let it happen. If someone loves you, they will love you for everything that you are, not just cherry picking what they like, and trying to change the rest. This is not fair, this is not love, and you deserve better. Be yourself, and move on from all those who don't like it. This is you, this is your life, if you can't be loved for everything you are, then realize you are worth more. You are a diamond, move on and find someone that realizes it.
There are many more reasons that a relationship is done - that it is time to move on. However if any of these signs apply to you and your relationship, whether it is a job, a friendship, an acquaintance, or any other type of relationship - it is definitely time to cut those ties - and move on!
