It’s great when your relationship is harmonious and positive. However, sometimes you might be mistakenly feeling it’s good when , there’s something wrong with it.
Unfortunately, our habits can often annoy or even force our partners to leave. For example, a simple bad habit that you have in your relationship could be what drives your partner to become more distant towards you. And as a result, they end up cheating on you.
So, if you find that you are committing a lot of these bad habits in your relationship, then you might want to make a change so that you don’t end up killing the love that you have for one another.
1. You keep your bad feelings to yourself
Let those feelings out. Communicate with your partner about your bad feelings even if it means having uncomfortable discussions with them. It’s a lot better to have the occasional fight and disagreement to bring the two of you closer together than to just keep your negative feelings bottled up inside.
2. You try to change your partner into someone else
You should never try to change your partner into someone they’re not comfortable with being. Yes, you want them to be the best version of themselves. But you don’t want them to feel like they’re not enough for you.
3. You try to outdo one another
In a relationship, it should never be a competition. It’s always bad if you feel insecure whenever your partner amasses some success in life. Your partner’s success should also be your own success as well. If you can’t be happy in your partner’s happiness over something, then there’s something inherently wrong with your relationship.
4. You don’t make an effort to listen to your partner
You must always make a genuine effort to listen to your partner. You never want them to feel like the stuff that they tell you goes in one ear and out through the next. You never want to be walled off from your partner. You always want to make yourself accessible and easy to talk to.
5. You let your jealousy get the best of you
Jealousy and possessiveness is okay to a sure degree in the relationship. You just want to be territorial and protective of the love that you have. However, it also gets to a point wherein your jealousy might actually get the best of you and be toxic for the relationship. You never want that to happen.
6. You compare your partner to other people
You should never get into the game of comparing your partner to other people. That’s wrong and uncalled for. You should be seeing your partner for who they are regardless of how they might compare to the people around you.
The more you understand yourself, the more silence there is, the healthier you are. —Maxime Lagacé
