Making assumptions is very cheap in a relationship, especially when you are tired of the relationship,  it becomes  the easiest thing to do.  Watch out for the assumptions your mind is makes up and ask yourself  “Is it worth the trouble? ” Are your allegations confirmed or they are mere imaginative conclusions?  Check if they are just reflection of your thoughts or there is realism in what your mind is telling you. Afterwards,  you should stay calm and don’t make decisions in a rush. Note that those confirmed negative attitudes of your partner would still be in your mind,  it would never leave.Just  be careful not to let those memories direct your path in the relationship.  Always stay positive.
