Uncertainty about the commitment to your current partner? Watch below.

A few questions you should ask yourself during the decision process:

  • how much of your unhappiness is directly contributed by your partner?
  • how and what are we contributing to the relationship difficulties?
  • what do you not fight about with your partner?
  • What undesirable habits/characteristics have your ex partners had that your current partner does not?
  • Reality question: are you okay with knowing happiness is not guaranteed in another situation or with another person?

As a therapist, it’s my job to ask people these questions as they navigate this process. Sone other questions I thought of as I watched the video:

  • What are outside influences that are impacting your relationship satisfaction? Are these changeable?
  • What are the situational stressors currently impacting your life? Are these temporary or a new norm?
  • Are there any mental/physical struggles currently occurring with your partner that needs to be addressed or reassessed? (anxiety, depression, chronic illness, etc.)
  • What are your dealbreakers?
  • What are the values informing your decision?
  • How long have you felt this way?
  • If you woke up tomorrow and no longer wanted to leave, what would have changed for you to feel that way?
