This depends entirely on the individual. Not, I cannot tell you what to do with your life. However, once it is that we realize what WE need to grow, we can, then Adjust life accordingly.

Go with what you're gut says about the situation. You're the best judge on the situation since you know it the best and it is important to you. ♡ Hope everything works out well for you on whatever you decide. :)

If you feel you arent happy anymore in the relationship then you should maybe break up cause the other person might get hurt later on

That depends on your situation and how you feel about your relationship. the only person who can give you the best advice is you so trust yourself to make the right decisions.

Every relationship has their ups and downs.So giving it the space and time relationship needs is good. Although if in a logical way that relationship is no good for any of the people involve in or for one of the two then consider break up and not immediately but also take time to make such a decision is necessary..Also if youre 100% sure about it make it permanent so it wont cause you problems in the future.

Depends on the relationship, and it depends on the situation. I think that you should not think twice and get out, if the relationship is abusive. Mentally or physically, or god forbid, both. Don't allow that person to hurt you or get the best of you like that. If you're in a situation where there might be arguments and misunderstandings, or maybe the other said something hurtful without intending to, but you're really upset by it, then I'd say to give it time. I am going through a similar thing myself. There are certain things that time can solve, as long as both parties love each other, and are actively putting in the effort to make the relationship work.

It is good to give it a time, if you think you need space to think it over if you should pursue your relationship and it is good to break it up if you're just keep getting hurt.

Give it time to see where it's going, and if it isn't going anywhere or you aren't happy, move on honey. Not your loss.

Any time you do not feel respected in a relationship, and having a conversation has not helped, it is best to break up. It is better to be alone than trying to wait for someone else to realise your worth.

It really depends on the situation, but generally it's good to give it a little time to make sure that you are making the right decision for you. Think of the long term and the pros and cons of your decision. If you know for sure this is what you want/ need to do, then make that decision.

It depends on how the relationship is going. Like if it's stressing you out or there's no trust, a breakup is the right choice. But if your partner is trying to keep it going and you still want the relationship then give it some time and see what you want to do after that.

This depends on what relationship problems you have. If it's something new then maybe talk it through. Sometimes they are easy problems that you can fix by talking and understanding. Other times it is a whole big mess and the best thing is to go separate ways.

Hey! Sounds like you are having a tough time with your couple... I think it's good to give it a time to think things through. If always up to you. You know best. You have the answer to that. No one else can respond that better than yourself. Whatever the situation is... I would ask myself.. What's best for both of us? Hope it helps you. Take care.

Unless it is not a danger to your health or mental state its good to give it time, rushing into things could be a mistake and it's best to let your mind calm and rationalize things before you jump into breaking up

It depends. If you truly love that person, then give it time. But also, remember, if they're causing you pain and not trying to fix it. Then that's a sign to break up.
