Love, they say, is a beautiful thing. But while in search of love, and life partners, a breakup is almost unavoidable.
Relationships are beautiful when there’s mutual understanding and agreement between the parties involved Some relationships may lead to marriage and others end halfway.
Breakups are the end of any romantic relationship, which may have been casual, official, long, or short-term relationships.
There are so many conditions that may have been ignored at the beginning, and this could be the main reason for parting ways with your partner, eventually.
CAUSES OF BREAKUP
1 Lack Of Communication:
communication is key to lasting relationships and lack of this could be disastrous.
Some partners fail to do this via calls, texting, video chats, and even in person. They overlook the importance of speaking with or hearing from their partners.
Also, relationships would not thrive if the flow of communication is one-sided.
2. Lack of Trust:
I strongly advise against going into a relationship with someone you do not trust.
A stable and thriving relationship should be built on trust and not doubt.
Relationships tend to go sour due to this factor. Trusting your partner means you believe that they would be honest, reliable, and have your best interest at heart. Any relationship without trust would eventually fall apart.
We tend to overlook this, but it’s a hidden fact that to be in a healthy relationship, the parties involved must be compatible. Intellectually, financially, sexually, and even health-wise.
This way, issues that could occur leading to a breakup can be avoided.
If you can’t stick to one partner, then you have no business being in an exclusive romantic relationship. It is a known fact that humans do not like to share their partners, especially if they’re in an exclusively romantic relationship.
Cheating could mean sex, flirting, or even developing feelings for someone outside your relationship.
This is a known cause of partners breaking up. It is in different forms, physical, mental, emotional, sexual, and even financial abuse. The weaker parties in relationships happen to be on the receiving end of any form of abuse. And it’s perfectly normal to walk out on any form of abusive relationship.
Long distances are known barriers to relationships. Humans are unable to stay far apart from their romantic partners and this may lead to an end of a relationship
This is an important part of any relationship. Showing that you care and you’ll go the extra mile for your partner is very important. A partner has to give optimum and undivided attention when in a relationship.
These are only a handful of issues that causes a relationship to go south and sour.
Most people are unable to recover after breakups, and this could lead to depression, low self-esteem, anxiety, and worst-case scenario could be suicide.
