Does he make your life easier, or harder?
Your partner should support your life, add energy to it and be your partner in your goals. He might do that in the form of advising you, helping you look for job opportunities, or simply giving you a back rub at the end of a long day. But the point is he should be making you feel full of life, not draining you of it. So: how does your partner make you feel? Is he another responsibility—like your job, or family commitments—or is he a joy? Is he who you escape to when you’re stressed? Or is he another stress? If he’s the latter answer to all of these questions, then it is time to cut ties.
