When to call it quits

I am the type of person that don’t like to give up on anything. That fact trickles down into my relationships. I find myself going through turmoil over and over and not just in romantic relationships. So how do you determine when enough is enough? In my last romantic relationship, I really did not want to give up, especially after being divorced. I was always trying to see the good in the relationship. I felt like some of the things I was going through weren’t nearly as bad as some of the things I had already gone through. I overlooked a lot of red flags that I should have acknowledged. Don’t get me wrong. We had some good times, even some great times. I think that is one of reason that I was remaining in the relationship. I kept thinking the things that weren’t good were going to get better. We were growing closer in some areas of our relationship, but drifting apart in other areas of our relationships. I didn’t know how to end the relationship, even though I knew that our relationship was not moving in the right direction. The relationship didn’t end until we had a huge falling out. The relationship should have definitely ended before that but because I didn’t want another failed relationship I kept holding on. So again, I ask, how do you know when to call it quits? My personal opinion is, if you are having significantly more bad times than good times, it may be time to end the relationship. If you are not feeling happy in your relationship most of the time, then it may be time to end the relationship. If you no longer have anything to talk about with your partner, then it may be time to end the relationship. At the end the day it’s your call, but don’t let fear cause you not to end a healthy relationship, when you know it’s not good for you.
