5 Signs it’s time you let go of the one you love

Published

on

Ever loved someone so much but still caused them pain? Unintentional pain that you try to soothe but fail? The process of love is long, one that requires patience and understanding but along the way, you may stumble upon challenges that will require only one thing, courage.

Courage to accept that it’s time to walk away. Bravery in admitting that you’re causing more damage than good. Sometimes you tighten your grip on someone, thinking this is love, this is me not giving up. When truth is, actual relief is in loosening your grip and letting go.

One question still remains, how to know that it is time for you to let go?

Well, the answer is you never really know. There are however, signs that should direct your feelings and they are what follows:

1- When you no longer add value to that person.

In both relationships and friendships, there has to be a mutual and beneficial bond. If you feel like you’re not adding value to that person or vice versa, then it is a strong sign. You’re supposed to not only help each other grow, but to also cherish the growth of one another, it shouldn’t scare you to see your partner thrives.

2- The scale of harm outweighs the good.

The damage at times may go unnoticed, because it causes mental sickness that can’t be always explained. This will appear in not wanting to talk anymore, and that is when your significant other may take it as a sign of giving up, when really all you want is for all the fighting to end. Without all the blaming, and fingers being pointed.

3- You’re both holding on to your rage.

At a certain point, you’ll both have to give up on your opinions on who is right and wrong, you’ll just have to accept the dead end of a discussion and move past it. If you can’t let go of your anger, then it’s definitely a bad sign. Compromising should extend to accepting the indifference of opinions, and moving on.

4- The trust is gone.

Breaking someone’s trust happens in a second, a situation or even a word. But for you to regain this trust, it takes longer, way longer. And this is the one thing that you can never push into happening quickly.

5- You’re just… drained.

Relationships require so much effort, that’s for sure. But is it really supposed to be this hard? There will come a time when you’ll feel like giving up, but a greater pull will stop you, and that’s love. But in certain cases, love won’t be enough.

When you can no longer understand each other, when the ground you’re standing on starts to shake, and all the things that brought you once together start to blur. The base of strong relationships isn’t love alone, it’s love, respect, understanding and patience. When these values begin to fade, your relationship starts to hang on a very thin thread.

It’s love that will push you to try and be worthy of someone’s love, to try over and over again. But when you start to feel that your absence would be a remedy, a bless, then that is your cue to leave.

Go bowling or skiing @SkiEgypt, maybe even some arcade fun @Magic planet, get some take outs afterwards and cruise in your car while playing your favorite tunes.

The ‘Single’ guide for Valentine’s day

Published

on

By

It is this time of the year again, the time where teddy bears and flowers invades the streets, and you can ‘feel’ the love everywhere. It’s almost valentine’s day, a day that couples use as a time to reflect on their relationship. As for others, the single ones, they have resentment towards this day and often think of it as another capitalist approach for people of businesses to make more money. (I do too, I’m not judging).

So for all the single ones out there, here’s a list of things you could do, so you stop hating on others! (Again, no judgment folks.)

1. Have a movie marathon, preferably of ones that include your celebrity crush.

Since TV is probably going to be your loyal companion on that day, then you better make the best of it. Start making a list of your favorite movies, get loaded with munchies and Netflix and chill all valentine’s day!

2. Do some good, and babysit for a couple.

Know someone who could use this day off from their duties as a parent and spend the night with their partner? Do them a favor, and watch their kids for the day.

3. Make it your self care day.

You owe yourself a self maintenance day every now and then, not specific to this day! So pamper yourself with some spa time for instance, or maybe go out for some dessert? Or just stay in, and do a bubble bath, do that hair or skin routine you have saved but never tried! Doesn’t really matter, what counts is for you to enjoy your own company.

4. Single and ready to mingle?

Gather the rest of your single friends, go out and party! Don’t hold back just because you don’t have dates, go out and relive the freedom of being single.

5. Take the day off and unplug.

If the whole ‘love is in the air’ thing makes you gag, then it’s a chance for you to put your phone down and unplug. Do some yoga instead, or exercise.

Consider it a digital detox from all the hassle of valentine’s day!

6. Reflect on your past relationships.

Take the time to reflect on your previous relationships, study the reasons behind their failures. Singles tend to feel fragile during this day, and sometimes ends up feeling nostalgic and seeking the attention of an ex. But that’s just a moment of weakness, so in order to avoid it, remember all the reasons that made you leave in the first place and hang on to them.

7. Go on a shopping spree.

Take advantage of any possible offers or discounts and spoil yourself with the things you love the most.

8. Do a makeover.

Changing your hairstyle is always a good idea! Just don’t take any rush decisions, based on an irrelevant feeling.

9. Spend the night with a loved one.

Not necessarily a boyfriend or a girlfriend, sometimes your mother makes the perfect date. (Especially if she is the one paying.)

10. Read.

Read a romantic novel, maybe something for Nicholas Sparks or Colleen Hoover, and trust me you will no longer be sad about that ex, as it will make you reevaluate true love and that it only exists in novels.
