6 Signs Its Time To Move On From Your Relationship



Fighting couple

Here are some reasons it might be time for you to move on:
1. You’re asking for attention and affection.

First and foremost, let me say this: You should never have to look for evidence that the other person likes you.

It should be clear. Nor should you ever have to earn love from the person you’re dating.

You are lovable and valuable, simply because you are here. Love from your significant other should be freely given. It should never have to be begged for or asked for.
2. You can’t be your true self.

Are you constantly trying to make yourself more “pleasing” for the person you’re with?

Although I think it’s important to want to impress the person you’re dating, you shouldn’t feel that way all the time.

Accept, love and be yourself. Stop watering yourself down and diminishing who you are to make the other person comfortable.

It’s not a solid relationship if you can’t ask for what you want/need, or can’t simply be yourself without fear the other person will leave you.

Your SO should be the individual with whom you feel most comfortable. You deserve to feel how you are feeling without apologizing, resisting or excusing.
3. S/he doesn’t invite you anywhere.

If someone wants you around, he or she should be proud to bring you places. Please remember your friendship, love, time and company are gifts, not burdens, and deserve to be treated that way.

Alone time and time with friends is very important. You’re supposed to have a full life outside of your relationship.

However, if your partner is consistently keeping you separate from other aspects of your life, that’s a red flag.

You should want to experience things with the person you’re dating. Otherwise, how are you supposed to grow?
4. You keep trying to “fix” your significant other.

You keep making excuses for your partner’s actions. You have to date the person, not his or her potential.

Otherwise, you’re wasting precious moments of happiness focusing on what “could be” instead of the reality of what is.

Yes, every relationship is different and will require some change in both parties, but no relationship that is truly meant to be will require so much work. It’s not fair to either of you.
5. Your relationship is one-sided.

People will always be willing to go out of their way, sacrifice and make the effort for things that are important to them.

If someone claims to love you, but his or her actions don’t reflect it, he or she does not love you.

Love is shown through action, not simply words. Actions say what words won’t.

A person can say he or she loves to garden, but if his or her plants aren’t properly tended to, the garden will die. Think about your relationship: Who is tending the garden? Is it mutual?

It’s exhausting to give 100 percent of yourself to a person who only gives you 20 percent in return. You deserve to be just as much of a priority as you make your partner.

A relationship is a two-way street.
6. You have to convince yourself you’re happy.

Are you happy with your relationship? How long did it take you to think about that question?

Don’t keep someone around who leaves you feeling exhausted and depleted every day. Friendship and love should be sources of joy, not stress.

If you have to sit and think if you love your partner, you probably don’t; rather, you like the idea of him or her.

Just because you think of a person a certain way doesn’t mean that’s how he or she is. If most of your time is spent trying to “make things work,” it’s not worth it.

I read a quote once that said, “If you find something good, hold onto it. If you have to convince yourself that it’s good every day, let it go.”

At the end of the day, regret nothing. Time spent with the wrong person can sometimes bring about the right things. Although it’s scary, sometimes you need to run away to see who is running with you.

In my case, when I broke up with my boyfriend, he just let me go, and that was all the reassurance I needed.

Realizing I deserved better was the first step to receiving it. It’s better to have nobody than to have someone who is halfway there, or doesn’t want to be there.

Don’t hold on to someone who doesn’t deserve you, or stay in a place that causes you more pain than joy.

Will it be hard? Yes! But it’s better to have some temporary pain than a lifetime of being stuck somewhere you know you don’t belong.

You can care about someone, forgive someone, want good things for someone, and still move on without him or her.

You don’t lose anything when you let go of someone who doesn’t care for you the way you deserve; you gain back who you are.

Taking Care of Tomorrow’s Leaders Today – The itel, Lagos Food Bank Example



Waking up to a special meal or choice gift is the best feeling ever. Hundreds of children in Mushin, mainland Lagos, had a filling taste of this feeling for the October 1 st celebrations. It’s an experience they will remember for a long time.

Being one of the most responsible corporate citizens around, celebrating Independence Day was always going to be on the radar for itel Mobile. To make this possible and memorable, the brand got to work in earnest. The focus of the work was picking the best way to commemorate the 60th independence anniversary of the most populous black nation on earth.

The efforts soon paid off through an impact-driven partnership with the Lagos Food Bank Initiative. With the arrangement, both partners considered a couple of activities capable of affecting communities positively and bringing smiles to people’s faces in Lagos. At the end of the exercise, taking care of children, the leaders of tomorrow, in the commercial city secured the highest votes.

With the decision, itel Mobile set about making this happen. Not surprisingly, the decision was
influenced by giving children the means to excel and prepare them for leadership and nation-building, for them to enjoy better life. For the good of their immediate family, community and the Nigerian society.

Idiko, Mushin, a suburb of mainland Lagos, was chosen as the benefiting community. And the partners strategically reached out to the beneficiaries, children and families, with gifts of love, care, happiness and support made possible by the itel Love Always On CSR initiative.

Over 1,000 families benefited from the gesture as well as 600 children, and each one of them received food packages to celebrate Nigeria’s 60 th Independence Day commemoration.

Speaking on the event and itel’s Love Always On CSR Initiative, Oke Umurhohwo, itel’s Marketing Manager said, ‘We wanted to mark this year’s Independence Day celebrations differently, and that is why we did something so momentous for our children. Children are the backbone of any longstanding community, and as such, we are proud to be able to give back and support them on their journey as leaders of tomorrow and for a better life.’

To meet the demands of the memorable event, 30 volunteers joined the customer-centric brand and the Lagos-based NGO to share smiles, and to convey just how important it is to love and take care of today’s children who will ultimately become leaders of tomorrow.

With the thoughtful activity, there are insights for everyone, from the government to citizens, on partnerships that are capable of making life better for children. Indeed, itel Mobile and the Lagos Food Bank Initiative have offered a great template on bringing this to reality.
