Why You Should Walk Away If Your Partner Doesn’t Respect You

Walking away from a relationship is never easy.  You really do need to think things through and be completely sure that you are making the right decision before you finally go through with leaving your partner.


At the end of the day, we all make mistakes but some of these mistakes are much bigger than the relationship.  It is going to be harder to just forgive and forget.

By smaller mistakes, we can learn to accept and move on.  Little mistakes are ok as they help us grow strong in a partnership. But if the mistakes are too big of an issue?  It is high time to walk away from disappointment.


No matter what anyone tells you, relationships are a partnership and these are all about given and take.

You need to make sure that your partner is treating you well as you are treating them nicely. Things can’t be all one way or it is never going to work and will definitely not last.

You need a partner who is going to be there for you. You need him or her not just in your happy days but also need them in your darkest hours.  Maybe you just need them to put arms around you to assure you that everything is going to be OK.


If you are with someone who is not doing this for you, it could be time for you to have serious thoughts about your relationship and see if you need to walk away?


Don’t rush into it though. If your partner has not been there for you when you needed them the most. You need to make sure that they are not going through anything themselves.

Maybe they are also facing some issues on that they have not spoken to you. Maybe they have also been wanting you to be there for them during their own dark times.

The key to any and every successful relationship is communication. You need to talk to one another about anything and everything. Be open, be honest and be clear about what your needs are and how you are feeling so that they know you need them and you know when they need you too.


However, if you are already in an open and honest relationship with your partner, yet they are still not there for you, especially when you need them the most, it is definitely time to consider leaving them. Your partner should be your first line of support and if they are not up to the task, they are not right for you.

Before you leave them, make it clear to them exactly why it is that you feel the need to leave, but don’t let them manipulate you into staying with empty promises and fake tears. Be strong and do exactly what needs to be done. You deserve better.


Take some time to be you. Find yourself again and make sure that you don’t rush into another relationship right away. It is OK to mourn the end of a relationship, even when you were right to leave. Take your time, then pick yourself up, remind yourself how great you are and later you can start afresh.
