You Don't Have To Stay In A Relationship Just Because Nothing's Wrong

Just because nothing is specifically wrong, doesn't mean it's right either.

Posted on

Sometimes we may end up in relationships where, because nothing is really going wrong, we can't justify a breakup.

E!

You might not even be feeling the relationship, but you also don't think there's enough reason to end it.

Well, PSA: Just because nothing is specifically wrong, doesn't mean it's right either.

Don't stay with someone just because you want to be with someone, and not specifically the person you are dating.

Ask yourself where you see the relationship going and if you really want to be with that person.

Do they make you happy? Do they add value to your life? Are you a better person because you are with them?

If the answer to all of these questions is no, then perhaps reconsider the relationship.

The bottom line is that you don't need a huge, glaring reason to break up with someone. If the only reason you are still with someone is because you don't see a reason not to be, then you should probably end it — for both of your sakes.

It wouldn't be fair to either of you to continue a relationship you are not truly invested in.

Being alone is better than being with someone you don't really care about, or who doesn't really care about you. It's OK to be alone for a while. Don't be afraid.

Warner Bros.

Besides, you are always less alone than you think.
