Things to Consider BEFORE Leaving a Relationship

Things to Consider BEFORE Leaving a Relationship

For anyone thinking about leaving a relationship, whether that be an intimate partner relationship, friendship, family or perhaps even professional, you owe it to yourself to look a little deeper before making a decision. 

 

Here are some quick self-check-in questions:

If I leave, what am I going to?  

What things do I hope to gain? 

What in me will change?

Why will it be better?  

What do I want for my life now? 

Who am I outside of this relationship? 

If I can be someone else outside of the relationship, why can’t I be that person in this relationship – what is holding me back from being fully in my identity?

Am I holding myself back or am I being held back? 

 

If you would like to more objectively explore these questions and the related issues they may raise, discuss them with a close confident who tells you the truth or explore them in therapy.  To book an appointment with Brisbane-based holistic counsellor, Sara Martin, email sara.martin@lifesensecounselling.com.au with your enquiry.
