Relationships can be some of the most wonderful things that two people can take part in. Spending endless amounts of time with the one you care so deeply for leaves you in total bliss. Just the mere thought of that person puts a smile on your face. Then all of a sudden, things take a turn for the worst. The constant arguing begins to occur. You two couldn’t see eye to eye if you were standing right in front of each other. Everything imaginable seems to be going wrong. And your once loving, peaceful partnership has began to spiral downhill. Then in the blink of an eye, you are on cloud nine once again. And everything is back to normal. Be that as it may, at any given moment, you know that things could change up.
True all relationships have their ups and downs. There is no secret at all about that. But does there come a time when this love roller coaster of yours should come to a complete stop?
At some point or another, we have had, or know someone that has had, a relationship like this. This relationship has its great moments, which are sometimes flaunted in the faces of your closest confidants. But lo and behold, this very same partnership can suffer some bad ones too that often stick out in your head like a sore thumb. One minute, he was the sweetest guy and you couldn’t get enough of him. The next minute, he is showing his ass and getting on the last good nerve that you have.
How could this be possible? How could the same person who brought so much joy into your life cause you so much pain?
Being involved in a relationship is not an easy thing to do. And to the overly optimistic individuals out there who think relationships are a walk in the park haven’t a clue. You can almost think of them as second jobs with the amount of work that some of us put into them. Personal sacrifices have to be made in order for them to truly work out for the best. You give a little, and he does the same in return. But by no means should the sacrifice that you make for your relationship be at the continuous expense of your feelings.
The roller coaster of love can have its fun and memorable moments. Just like the real thing, it can take you to great heights, where you feel like you are on top of the world. But with those great parts of this ride, you will also run into those twists and turns that may not always be to your liking. Or experience that sudden drop in your partnership that you didn’t see coming. Yes, relationships do involve putting your feelings on the line. And they are not always picture perfect, with no flaws at all. But when you get to the point where you begin to feel emotionally drained by someone, that could be your sign to officially hang it up.
