Mistakes happen. They happen a lot in relationships. No matter how hard you might try, it’s so hard to be perfect in a relationship. Truthfully, it’s practically impossible. However, that doesn’t mean that all relationships are doomed as a result. Yes, love and relationships might be imperfect. But that doesn’t have to expect that no relationships could last. This is where the values of patience and understanding come in. So as long as you try to stay patient with the partner that you’re with, you are going to turn out fine.
After all, you have to be willing to acknowledge the fact that your partner isn’t always going to do the right thing. And what that means is that you have to develop a tolerance for their pitfalls and mistakes. Naturally, this means being able to give them second, third, or even fourth chances. However, you also have to make sure that they are worthy of it. Sometimes, it’s just a lot better for you to walk away from someone than to try to force the issue.
How do you know?
Of course, you might ask the question. How do you know? How can you be sure if the person you’re with is worthy of that second chance? How do you know if it would be more apt for you to walk away entirely? Well, if you’re asking yourself these questions, then you have come to the right place. Sometimes, you have to be honest with yourself about the state of your relationship. If you find that a lot of the things listed here apply to your partner, then maybe you should rethink being in this relationship.
Here are a few signs that the person you’re with isn’t worth giving a second chance to.
1. They refuse to accept responsibility for their actions.
They aren’t interested in owning up to their mistakes and shortcomings. In their eyes, they think they can do no wrong. They always seem like perfect creatures who always do the right thing. However, you know that they can be destructive in their thoughts, habits, and words.
2. They don’t apologize for their mistakes.
They don’t have any interest in apologizing to you. They don’t care about the fact that they’ve hurt you or done something wrong. Even when they know that they’ve screwed up, they would never want to admit that to you. They are just too proud to apologize for anything. They don’t want to give you that satisfaction or peace of mind.
3. They focus the attention on all of the shortcomings that you have had.
Instead of just acknowledging the fact that they’ve screwed up, they would instead highlight the fact that you’ve done them wrong. They would want to put the highlight on all the ways that you’ve screwed up to take the attention away from themselves.
