The hardest thing to do is walk away from a relationship that you’ve invested time and energy in. Sometimes, however, this is the healthiest choice you can make. Either way, it’s not easy to know what you should do.
Be aware of 5 hints that you’ll be better without him:
#1 No Trust
It can be the hardest thing to develop, but trust is the key to successful relationships. It will make your relationship will feel clear and guarded. That sense of walking on eggshells is absent when trust exists.
You should be able to openly share your deepest thoughts with your partner knowing you won’t be judged. Accusational thoughts don’t control your mind with trust. Relationships with no trust are draining.
Whether trust was lost because of a specific happening or was never properly, developed, your relationship won’t survive without it.
#2 Shallow Attachment
Relationships should be built on strong foundations. This means more than natural chemistry in bed. Once the initial passion lightens, you want to be sure that you relate to your partner.
Struggling to hold conversations or feel interested in what’s being said means there’s an issue with the intensity of your connection.
Sharing your life with one person holds immense meaning. You want that person to know the true you and you want to know them through and through. Anything less than that is too shallow for your energy.
#3 Not Your Best Self
Have you ever felt like you didn’t recognize yourself during an interaction with your partner? That’s one of the biggest red flags that you should not ignore. Why exclusively sharing yourself with someone if they don’t bring out the best in you?
A relationship should elevate your sense of being. Otherwise, you’re better off alone, right? While relationships do take a lot of hard work, you should not compromise well-being.
If it provokes the worst in you, it’s time to reconsider your choice.
#4 Opposing Values
Values are completely subjective for everybody. That being said, having completely opposite values or not even one value in common is destructive for relationships. You base your life choices on your values, whether you’re aware of it or not, so if you’re not on the same page as you share your life, you won’t be able to write the life story you want.
Learning to accept another person as they are is a vital relationship component, but it’s wiser to recognize differences that cannot be bridged. Common goals matter so don’t force something if it doesn’t fit.

#5 Missing Respect
We tend to make excuses for the person we love, and that includes allowing a lower level of respect than is healthy. They should respect you the most above all people. Without respect from both people, there is no way to pave an intimate path.
Boundaries are normal. Be sure to respect those of your partner and demand that they respect yours. This is what will make or break your relationship.
If any of these signs strike a chord with you in relation to your love-life, it may be time to move on.
