Forgiveness is one of the hardest things a person can ever do. It takes strength and a huge heart to be able to take this step. However, every person needs to understand that not all people deserve forgiveness and not all acts should be forgiven, not even in the name of love. If you know someone who does these seven destructive actions on a regular basis, it might be time to let them go.
There is no such thing as an acceptable lie, because if a person lies to you once, then they will probably do it again. If you catch someone close to you in a lie, don’t waste your time giving them excuses, because they don’t deserve it.
As the saying goes “Once a cheater, always a cheater!” Don’t be convinced when they claim that they had no control over it, because cheating doesn’t happen “accidently” and you deserve better than that.
3. Physical Abuse
People who give themselves permission to hit you or hurt you physically are not people capable of loving or caring about any human being. It’s much better for you to let go of them before getting hurt, especially if you have (or are planning to have) kids.
4. Emotional Abuse
Not all abuse is physical; if your partner has you walking on eggshells all the time, it’s safe to say it’s emotional abuse. Make sure to be wary of any warning signs and know that it’s better to walk away now than face feelings of abandonment and neglect.
5. Invasion of Privacy
When you are in a relationship, it’s natural to share secrets your partner, but it is still your right to have some privacy. So if you catch your partner going through your phone, then you have a huge problem! And if you do trust them with a secret and they let it out, then this person needs to get out of your life instantly without thinking twice.
It is not acceptable under any circumstances for your partner to disrespect you or your loved ones, not even when you make mistakes. Respect should be a given and not a bonus. If not, then it is better to stay single than be with someone who disrespects you.
7. Lack of Trust
If your jealous partner keeps interrogating you and questioning what you say, then there are huge trust issues that are going on. This is a red flag, as trust is the basis of any healthy relationship. Without trust, your life together will be a living hell.
It’s hard to let go of someone you love, but sometimes it needs to be done. Remember to look out for yourself!
