11 Questions to Know if You Need to END a Relationship

Many people stay in relationships long past the expiry date. Maybe you’re afraid of dealing with the awkwardness of breaking up or don’t want to be alone again. Maybe you’re just not sure. Some things might be working but other parts are not, leaving you with the quandary of sticking it out or walking away.

It’s a tough position to be in. Add to the mix that living in a state of indecision can make you crazy, too.

I can’t tell you how many clients have hired me specifically to help them get clarity on this. For many, this is a huge, life-altering decision. When we’re so emotionally enmeshed in the relationship, it’s difficult to view our situation with a clear head.

In fact, I’ve had so many clients hire me to help them with this, I developed a process that includes a series of questions to support clients with gaining clarity and making the best decision possible for themselves.

So if this is your situation right now – or you just want to keep this article on file for the future, then read on for some questions I use that will help you decide if it’s time to leave a relationship.

Answering YES to even one of these questions is a sign it’s time to move on.


#1: Am I staying because of great memories from the past, hoping we’ll get back there again?

#2: Am I experiencing more pain rather than joy in this relationship?

#3: Do I keep expecting this person to change (but they never do)?

#4: Do they keep expecting me to change?

#5: Am I continually justifying their actions even though it’s hurting me?

#6: Do my partner’s hurtful actions keep repeating (even though I’ve addressed it)?

#7: Do I feel like he/she is putting no effort into the relationship?

#8: Do our fundamental values clash? (ie; family, money etc…)

#9: Has this relationship been holding me back from moving forward in other areas of my life for a long time?

#10: Am I staying because I’m expecting things to get better?

#11: Am I staying in this relationship out of habit (when deep down I know we don’t love each other anymore)

Yes, it may be time to move on. You’ll be alright and if you feel fearful and begin to doubt for one moment that you’re making the wrong decision, go through this list again and remind yourself why you’ve decided to go.
