When to call it quits

Breaking up with your partner is never easy, but sometimes you have to do it. Sometimes we stay in unhappy relationships because ending it is such a tough decision and can cause a lot of emotional stress and practical problems. If you’re putting it off, even though you feel it’s the right thing to do, you’re not the only one.
