5 Signs It’s Time To Get The F*ck Out Of Your Relationship

3. You’re the “other woman.”

I have a strict belief in girl code and feel that if you ever go after someone who has a girlfriend, fiancé or a wife; you’re an awful girl and human being. However, I also have been in this situation and know how hard it is when you’re emotionally invested in somebody. Yes, I’ve been an awful human being. The hardest lesson I had to learn was that I was only a pitstop on this guys journey, a notch in the old belt. If a guy cheats with you, he most likely isn’t ending his relationship or marriage to be with you. Truth be told, even if he did, he would cheat on you all the same. No one wants a relationship where trust is an issue.

4. He doesn’t care about your dreams or problems.

Believing in someone that you’re with is important. So is listening to them when they need to talk. If a guy doesn’t care about what’s going on in your life-your career status, your family and friend issues, your thoughts on the new How To Get Away With Murder episode, you’re probably wasting your time. You should be with a guy who cares about what you have to say and actively listens when you say it.

5. He makes you feel awful about yourself.

When a guy makes you feel bad about yourself, it’s a no brainer that he’s not the one for you. Nobody should ever be a priority in your life if they are only bringing you down. I’m a firm believer that energy is contagious; if you’re surrounding yourself with negative energy, you too will have a negative aura. If you’re spending time together, and it always ends up in a fight because you’re not getting what you want or need from the relationship then it’s time to cut ties.

Although many people will say that knowing when to walk away is easy, it’s the walking away that is the hardest. Saying goodbye takes a lot of guts, courage and sometimes a few bottles of wine. It’s even harder when social media plays an active role in our everyday lives, reminding us that people still smile and live without us in their lives. It’s important to remember that walking away is never forsaken, because in the end the only person you should be worried about taking care of is you.
