6 things you’re doing wrong in your relationship
Relationships can be hard. But relationships can also be fun, fulfilling, and loving when both partners allow it to.
If you are in a relationship, you most likely have your thoughts constantly on your significant other. It feels wonderful to be cared for, and it is especially wonderful to care for somebody else.
But sometimes when we become settled in our relationships, the freshness and that new, exciting, feeling starts to fade, and we tend to make some not-so-healthy relationship choices.
This can include, degrading statements, and can even temper with our self-confidence.
Here are some things that you may want to think about while you’re in your relationship, and some tips on how you can work things out.
1. You’re comparing your current relationship to your old relationships
If you were in a toxic relationship in the past, then anything your new person does is going to feel like a breath of fresh air. But you have to remind yourself, just because this person is treating you better than the last person, it doesn’t mean they’re treating you well. If your bar is already set low, you shouldn’t settle for someone who rises just above the bar. You should hold out for someone who raises it as high as possible.
2. You’re spending every waking moment together
It’s great that you’re best friends. It’s great that you have so much in common. It’s great that you spend quality time together every single day. But you’re supposed to have your own lives. You shouldn’t feel like it’s the end of the world when you’re alone for a few hours while they’re out with their friends or working overtime at the office. Missing them is normal, but if it’s a real struggle to spend twenty-four hours without them, then you need to learn how to be happy on your own.
3. You’re stuffing your emotions down to avoid confrontation
You shouldn’t keep your feelings to yourself. If something is bothering you, your person deserves to know. It’s dangerous to convince yourself it’s not that big of a deal and you’ll get over it. After all, if you don’t tell your person when something is bothering you, nothing is going to stop them from making the same mistake again and again. And you’re going to grow more resentful about the behavior over time.
