There comes a time in our life when having tried everything, we find ourselves calling time on our relationship. Sometimes it’s because we feel we have no choice, but perhaps it doesn’t always mean the other person’s ready to call time.
When the other person is unreasonable, selfish and uncharitable and only thinks about them, there’s no reason why they would call time. They’re usually the ones who journey along in life, thinking others are the problem.
Some of us may realise how we are, others may continue to live in denial that there’s actually a problem. But calling time is a call for help, that something needs to change. Calling time in the longer term, gives us control to go back in and change things if that’s what we choose to do.
There would be no point going back in on the same terms. If we’re already calling time, we’re telling the other person, things must change. Going back in to talk is always a good starting point. If we’re still happy to go back in, we’ll be able to outline what changes need to be made.
Calling time is often the only way for us to get the message across that we’re not happy in the relationship. Not everyone listens or sees the signs and when they do it’s usually too late. Of course, if nothing changes after that, it will be your choice to call time for good.
