This situation is very common among working professionals whereby one decides to end a relationship due to too much stress at work, or the relationship becomes a hindrance to their job. In this case, the problem needs to be resolved on both the professional and personal/emotional side.
If it seems to you that your relationship broke up due to stress at work, then don’t panic because you have high hopes of getting back together with your ex. A job is a very trivial reason for ending a love connection, and the disaster can be resolved quite easily. Of course, using a job as a reason to break up may only be an excuse to hide more serious conflicts, but let’s not go that route for this article.
It’s true that working professionals go through some serious stressful periods at times, and having to endure the emotional ups and downs with a boyfriend or girlfriend at the same time can be very complicated. But that’s no reason for breaking up especially if you believe that person to be your soulmate. It’s probably going to be easier to find a new job than finding a soulmate again.
You don’t have to quit your job either, but the smartest thing to do is to avoid mixing your personal and professional life. Very often, your job can completely invade or hijack your private life and you may not even notice it. To keep a healthy balance between your job and private life, avoid bringing office work at home or doing work-related phone calls outside the office. If you absolutely have to do it, then keep it to a minimum.
If you are concerned about your career and working obsessively to get that promotion, then you shouldn’t have gotten in a relationship in the first place. If you were already in a relationship, then the most crucial thing you should have done before obsessing about your career should have been to talk about it with your partner.
Like we said, if your relationship broke up due to stress at work, and you are sure that there is no other serious conflict in your relationship, then getting your ex back could be just as easy as talking about the situation with your ex.
A loving and caring partner should understand if you are willing to focus on having a successful career. Don’t do the mistake of taking important life decisions alone at the risk of completely ruining a cherished relationship.
