When You Truly Love Someone, When Do You Reach “Enough is Enough”?

This is a question that I talk with people about in life. I clearly stole this from somewhere but if you know the source don’t worry about it, still a great topic to talk about

When you really love somebody, truly, all the way, when is enough is enough?

    [Can you clarify what you mean by this?

    Do you mean “enough is enough” as in, “I love you, but I can’t take XXX about you anymore”?

    Or, “I love you, but I don’t know if I can ever love you enough”?

    Either, I feel like the answer is going to depend on the circumstances, and there’s not going to be one magical one-size-fits-all answer …

      [Well.. then you really don’t love them all the way, I guess. If you love everything about someone except that they, for instance, chew with their mouth open.. And no matter what you do – they won’t stop.. Then I guess it becomes up to you.. is it something you can live with? No one is going to be perfect.. Everyone will do something that annoys their partner.. It all comes down to what you can, and can’t, overlook.

    [When you are unhappy more than you are happy. When the bad days outnumber the good, for an extended peiod of time (it’s not related to a situation that should reasonably resolve with time like an issue external to the relationship). When asking or expecting them to change is the only option. When your unhappiness is affecting other parts of your life or your health. When you find yourself asking that question in the first place.

    No matter the popular myth, love is not all you need. Love isn’t enough. You can love someone and not need to be with them. You can have more than one “true love” in a lifetime.

    [Each relationship is unique and thus there is rarely a clear cut answer that I can give you. That said, there are questions you can ask yourself. A few questions that you may find helpful are….1) If there is a behavior that makes a relationship too hard to stay in have you told them how it’s impacting you? 2) Are they willing to change? 3) If they are willing, are they able to change?

    Good luck and let us know how it goes!

    Best,
