10 Bad Reasons To End A Relationship (These Sound Good Inside Your Head, But Are Actually Terrible)

Bad Reasons to End a Good Relationship

Planning to break up? But not sure you have good enough reasons to call it quits? There are many bad reasons to end a relationship that can make you feel like you have lost The One.

Relationships are complicated and can often feel like a maze that you endlessly navigate through to find your way out. But often it can leave us feeling confused, wondering if the relationship is worth all the trouble. I know several couples, including me, who almost broke up with their partners when they were going through rough tides. But thank god they didn’t.

Sometimes breakups are a bad idea

Relationships take effort. A lot of effort. Some days you will feel like putting in that effort, some days you will expect your partner to put in that effort. When both of you put in the same effort, make the sacrifices and express your love to the other person genuinely, you feel like your relationship is worth all the trouble. That effort will help you get through the dark days and give you the strength to make the relationship work, instead of ending a perfectly good relationship.

Although there are a lot of good reasons to end a relationship, like lies, abuse, and manipulation, there are a ton of really bad reasons to end a relationship. As long as you are happy with your partner and feel good about yourself in the relationship, you should always fight for it. Fight to defend it. To nourish it. And to help it thrive.

You should always take a second look at your decision to break up with a good person from a different perspective and identify if your reasons hold up or if they sound silly. A relationship that feels fulfilling and makes you happy is hard to come by and it would be a shame to let it go for petty reasons.

Bad reasons to end a relationship with someone you love

Relationships taste sour at times. But that’s no reason to throw it in the drain. The best relationships are not always adorned with flowers and rainbows. It can be complicated, it can be dark at times, but when the light of love shines through, you’ll be glad you followed your heart and stuck with The One for you.

If you don’t want to turn your partner into ‘The One That Got Away and end up drowning in regret, here are 5 bad reasons to end a relationship that you should take a look at –

1. You think the timing is not right

Do you believe that the timing is not the most ideal to be in a committed relationship? Do you think you have a lot going on in your life to deal with the ups and downs of your relationship? Well, welcome to adulthood, my friend. Adult life is never ideal. We have to deal with a lot and all of it is a top priority starting from your career and finances to family, responsibilities, personal health, social obligations, and whatnot. But if you think all this is a hindrance in your path to a happy relationship, then I am sorry to say it is one of the bad reasons to end a relationship.

In fact, this is the very reason why you should be in a healthy relationship. A good partner can give you the strength and support to navigate through life’s challenges and find happiness in your daily life. Timing may sound like the perfect reason to get a divorce or a breakup, but it is nothing but a shitty excuse. When we love someone and want to be with them, we will make the time no matter how busy our life is. Timing is definitely one of the wrong reasons to break up.
