Have you ever been so involved in your relationship that you lost sight of what you really want? This can partially due to the ‘honeymoon phase’ of your union. Or, because you’re so in tune with what your lover wants that you’ve accepted their desires as your own. Before you get too lost in love, remember that it’s important to take a step back every once in a while and evaluate what it is that you want from your relationship.
There are times in a relationship when your partner will struggle. This can be challenging… on both of you. Especially if you’re used to seeing them be strong. If something has unexpectedly has affected them in a way that has caused you concern, it might be time to get involved.
We’ve all been there… lingering in the aftermath of a breakup, that we weren’t quite mentally or emotionally ready for. No matter how many times your bestie (or mom) tells you that you’ll be over him soon – or that there’s someone better out there for you – you just can’t seem to escape the very literal feeling of overwhelm or the constant thoughts of what could have been.
I don’t subscribe to the notion that relationships are hard.
Relationships are built on effort and the desire to be and stay connected to your partner. It doesn’t matter how long you’ve been involved with your loved one… if you’re reading this post, they mean a lot to you. But being happy in a relationship doesn’t mean that there isn’t room for improvement.
