Here's Why You Need To Let Go Of People Who No Longer Play An Important Role In Your Life

1. They've simply changed.

People do change over time. In any relationship, be it platonic or romantic, it's important that you be able to grow with people as opposed to apart from them. If it's the latter, it may be time to move on from the relationship.

2. There isn't any trust or loyalty there.

If you have good reason not to trust a friend or to question the loyalty of a lover, that's a clear sign it's time to let go of that relationship. You have to be able to fully be yourself with the people in your life.

3. You're feeling unclear about your relationship.

If you're not sure what the relationship even is anymore, where you stand, and what your path forward is, that's a pretty clear sign it's time to let go.

4. The relationship is damaging to you.

This one is fairly obvious. You hang out with them and they leave you feeling a little blue. Maybe it's a sign you shouldn't see them anymore.

5. You just don't see eye to eye.

Are you constantly arguing about everything? Can you never agree on where to go and what to do? You're just not seeing eye to eye anymore! It might be time to let go.

6. You're the one putting in all the effort.

I think we've all had a friendship like this. You call them up and maybe they'll come have a drink with you or go for a hike. But if you don't ever reach out, you'll never hear from them. Yeah, it's time to leave them behind.

7. They don't believe in you.

I've had friends like this too. You get to the point where you're no longer willing to even talk about the things in your life because they either disagree with the move or simply don't think you'll succeed and have no problem saying it to their faces. Yeah, time to let go.

8. The relationship just isn't working for you.

Pretty simple, huh?
