9 Signs That It’s Not Time To Give Up On Your Relationship Yet

As amazing as it is to get together with someone you care about, the flip side is that you run the risk of someday coming apart.

So how do you know when you shouldn’t give up? Here are our top ten signs that it’s not time to give up on your relationship.

1. Neither of you want to break up.

That’s great. If neither of you want to break up, then that means you still have a fighting chance. It means that both of you are still willing to put in the effort that it takes to make this relationship work. It means that neither of you are willing to let this thing ᴅɪᴇ.

2. You have unfinished business

If you can’t stand something your partner does or if you feel your relationship has become stagnant, it does not mean it is over and you should give up. First try to talk with your partner openly about the things you are not happy about and if they are willing to work on it you might end up happier.

3. You are dealing with a problem that you’ve never encountered before.

If the problem is new, then that means it isn’t necessarily going to be a terminal one. This gives you and your partner an opportunity to face a new challenge and to overcome a new obstacle as a team. Life isn’t going to stop throwing problems your way after all.

4. Your partner makes a genuine effort to change bad habits.

If your partner is still trying to change for the better, then there is always a chance the relationship can still work. It means that compromise is prevalent in the relationship for the greater good of your shared love for one another.

5. It’s just one honest mistake

We all make mistakes and you should never crucify your partner about a small insignificant mishap. You might do the same thing in the future and you will want support and understanding from your partner.

6. Most of your doubt stems from the noise outside of the relationship.

You let your friends or your family talk you into doubting your love and romance. They try to tell you what to do even though they don’t see things from your perspective; even though they don’t know the ins and outs of the relationship like you do.

7. Some problems can’t be fixed

We often encounter serious issues in a relationship that can’t be resolved and fixed easily. They might require a lot of time and effort and it is extremely important to sit down and discuss that problem with your partner.

8. You’re afraid you’ll be heartbroken

Being afraid to love just because of the fear of being heartbroken is stupid. Many people will prefer to be alone than risk getting hurt. However, this fear should not stop you from falling in love and working on your relationship. Not all men are interested in cheating or hurting their partner. Try to relax, and enjoy your happiness.

9. You don’t have all the facts straight as of yet.

You just heard from this friend that your partner is ᴄʜᴇᴀᴛɪɴɢ on you. You just listened to your mother give you a sermon about how your partner isn’t right for you. None of these are definitive. You have to be sure. Get all the facts straight and come up with a decision on your own.
