Relationships are an interesting thing and they come in many shapes and sizes and there are so many dynamics to a romantic relationship. However, there are times where good relationships go’s bad and the reasons are equally innumerable and it would be difficult to describe all of them in great detail. The bottom line is that some things don’t work out.
Evaluating a Potential Future for a Past Relationship
Unfortunately, even when a relationship has ended, the people involved in that relationship may find themselves attracted or drawn to each other once again. That begs the question, is the relationship worth fighting for? In some cases, it is, and in others, it isn’t. It’s important to know when it’s right to fight for a relationship and when, as difficult as it may be, the relationship should stay in the past.
Do Not Stand for Verbal or Physical Abuse
Perhaps universally one of the most telling signs that a relationship is not worth fighting for is abuse. People get into arguments all the time and careless words are sometimes spoken. However, if there is a pattern of abusive words and, more importantly, a pattern of abusive behavior, this is an area where a person should flee any thoughts of trying to recapture a relationship.
Consider the Importance of Communication
One of the make or break issues of any relationship is good communication. Unfortunately, relationships that have good communication can fail just as much as relationships that don’t. However, if a person has had a relationship with someone that they have good communication with, that alone may be one of the most important reasons to fight for that relationship. It is important to be able to talk to a partner, and if a couple had bad communication in a past relationship, it may not be worth fighting for.
To mention all the relationships do’s and don’ts would be extremely difficult. However, if a relationship has ended and you are drawn to that person, you need to be very careful in surmising whether that relationship is something worth fighting for or if it’s something to leave alone.
