10 Ways to Know It’s Time to Leave Your Relationship

10 Ways to Know It's Time to Leave Your Relationship“How do I know when it’s time to call it quits on my relationship?” I often hear this question from my clients.

Unless there is physical danger in staying in the relationship, I generally advise my clients to stay until they understand and heal their end of the relationship system.

The way we behave with our kids will have a big effect on them, on what they do, how they feel about themselves, and how they turn out. Studies have shown that children whose fathers spend time with them and show that they are interested in them do better at school, are happier and more confident and have higher self-esteem.

Many fathers and soon to be fathers have lots of love and good intentions to offer their families. They have an idea of what a “good father” is and the type of experiences and relationships they would like with their children.

The scene: About 45 minutes into the date. The conversation: Witty. His date: Flirty. Their chemistry: Spot on. So far, this had the makings for a great night. However, Aaron was still uneasy. When would he drop the K-bomb? K as in K-I-D-S. Aaron, a single dad of two, wondered if an extra two would make three a crowd for his date, Natalia, a single woman with no kids.

Suddenly, in the midst of great conversation, he blurted out a stream of disjointed sentences. “Umm…I wanted to tell you, umm…I’m a dad of two.” Natalia recoiled a bit, mostly due to Aaron’s instant change in behavior from clever and cavalier to uncomfortable...
