Is It Time To End This Thing?
And now I bring you Part 2 of “Eden’s Unprofessional Dating Advice.”
(Seriously, I get a lot of emails asking dating advice, which I think is kind of funny because hello, look at my life, yet you all seem to trust me anyways)
Should you break up with them? I don’t know.
I guess when you boil it down the real question becomes “is this relationship helping me or hurting me?”
Some people claim that “happiness is over rated,” but do you know who those people are? Unhappy people! You only have one life to live so why not make it your best? If you look back on your relationship up until this point, and the majority of it was spent in misery, then this might not be the best relationship for you.
The important thing to remember though is that happiness in the absence of having a good answer for the first four points of this article, may be happiness misplaced. Sometimes we fool ourselves into thinking that we are happy, just so we don’t have to feel the heartache of loss, or go through the effort of starting over. But as we have talked about before, there comes a point where you have to set down what’s not working in order to pick up something better.
So should you breakup?
I can’t answer that, but hopefully your answers to some of those questions will lead you to the one answer you really need, because at the end of the day it’s your life and the person you share it with plays a big role in how much you enjoy it.
