How do you handle it?
It’s easy when we’re happy in our relationships. Problems that might ordinarily be considered challenging seem to be solved with ease. When you feel fulfilled, at peace, and happy with a partner, everything is just better.
But when you’re unhappy in your relationship that’s when things start to get complicated. If you have good reasons to stay with your partner — such as kids or businesses — you may want to just try and ride it out.
There are times that breaking up with someone is not an immediate option and you have to find ways to find your situation tolerable. Do you tell or indicate in any way to your partner that you’re not happy in the relationship, or do you pretend that everything is fine?
If you’re unhappy in your relationship, some people will advise you to extract yourself immediately, while others will suggest you work on the relationship with a therapist. Breaking up can be very complicated and people have their reasons for not wanting to do it when they’re not happy.
Most relationships aren’t 100 percent happy all the time, so what is it that tells you that instead of bringing you joy, your relationship makes feel nothing at all or sadness? If there are a lot of things that you find more enjoyable than being with your partner, or if they’re bored or annoyed when they are with you, those are signs of an unhappy relationship
Everybody has their own way of coping with a relationship that doesn’t make them happy, but each of the zodiac signs has their own way of dealing with this type of situation. You might be born under a sign in which you feel the best way to deal with a negative situation is not to deal with it at all, or maybe your star sign faces the situation head on and lets their partner know that the relationship isn’t bringing them joy.
Here’s how you cope with an unhappy relationship, based on your zodiac sign.
If you share much more about your life with social media than you do with your partner, then you're probably not happy in your relationship. You're choosing to slowly freeze them out rather than draw them into your life, Aries.
Taurus do a lot of home projects, whether it's redecorating, doing your own upholstery, or cooking every single recipe in Julia Child's Mastering the Art of French Cooking. You're home but you're not really there for your partner; your complete focus is on something else.
When a Gemini is unhappy in their relationship, besides being annoyed with themselves (they thought they had chosen so carefully) they will engage in a lot of talk therapy — with a therapist, with their friends, and with their family. But they'll be oddly close-lipped when it comes to talking to their significant other.
Although normally Cancers are all about expressing their feelings when they're unhappy in a relationship, they tend to retreat into their shell and suffer in silence. When Cancer doesn't express their unhappiness, it just gets worse until there's a major meltdown and nothing can be saved.
When a Leo is unhappy in their relationship, they're probably already looking for a replacement for their partner. They're not cheating, but if someone who seems amazing returns their interest, it will be incredible how swiftly they'll disengage from their old relationship and start a new one.
When a Virgo is unhappy with their current relationship status, they're fully aware of it. They'll be going over the relationship and their partner looking for flaws, weakness, and wrongs that were done to them. They'll be putting together some kind of extraction plan so that when they feel like the time is right, they can get themselves out of the relationship.
When Libras aren't in a good romantic situation, they'll be a mess. They'll have trouble at work, get into fights with their friends, and will even have some medical issues. They hate confrontation and will do anything to avoid it, even if it means making themselves sick from the stress of a bad relationship.
When a Scorpio is unhappy in their relationship, things can get very uncomfortable for their partner. They won't break up with them, but the Scorpio will get obsessive and jealous and search for something they can use against their partner to get them to leave.
If a Sagittarius is unhappy with their relationship, they'll just leave on a trip somewhere, and suddenly their relationship has become a long-distance relationship. The LDR will continue for a while until the Sagittarius gets so irritated by the whole thing and just ends it.
When a Capricorn isn't feeling good about their relationship, they tend to get very controlling. Emotions like unhappiness make Capricorns feel as if they're on shaky ground and that makes them very uncomfortable, so in order to get some control back into their life, they begin to micro-manage everything.
When an Aquarius is unhappy in their relationship, they hone their focus and start to pursue all those things they've been saying they'd do for a long time now. Expect them to do a lot of volunteer work, home repairs, even go to the gym — anything that keeps their mind off their significant other.
A sign that Pisces isn't happy in their relationship is when the usually unselfish Pisces do a complete switch and become extremely self-centered. Since their heart has left the building, Pisces is free to concentrate on the things that make them feel creative and excited, and that's not their significant other.
