13. You’re settling because of fear.
What if there’s no one better for you out there? What if you end up alone if you break up with this one? Fear of the “what ifs” should never be the reason for you to settle for someone you don’t even want to be with.
12. You feel disrespected by your partner.
The words or actions of your partner belittle you. They underestimate you or think you won’t ever measure up, the way Warner looks down on Elle Woods in Legally Blonde. They make you think you are less than what you really are. Your significant other should believe in you, not make you feel you deserve less.
11. You’re holding on because of social pressure.
This is especially true when you are in a relationship with someone who was introduced by your friends or family. It would feel awkward to hang out with the same crowd if you break up with them. But this does not mean that you should sacrifice your happiness just because of social pressure.
10. You would rather do anything else than spend time with them.
Even if you have to do overtime at work or do household chores that you hate, you would rather do these things, than spend time with your partner. Whether this is because you no longer want to be with them or you are running away from them for some reason, it’s a sign that you should be honest with yourself and try to understand why you don’t want to be with them anymore.
