What Are Those Small Things That Destroy Relationship Over Time?
One of the biggest threats to a relationship is when one or both of you stop trying. We all know the honeymoon period where you’re trying to impress each other by putting your best foot forward isn’t going to last forever.
Once the butterflies in your stomach start to fade, you’re entering a new phase in your union where you’re both comfortable being yourselves. But if you aren’t careful, you could get too comfortable and start to lose sight of why you’re in a union, to begin with. It doesn’t always have to be a huge blowout that ends things; sometimes it’s a bunch of little things that wouldn’t be a big deal on their own, but take their toll before you even realize it.
For me, holding grudges against a partner destroy a relationship faster than one can imagine. Forgiveness is important not only in a union but in all parts of life. People make mistakes, and if you can’t let things go even after they apologize and plenty of time has gone by, you’re going to have a hard time ever being happy.
You can’t get enough of each other, I get it. But you need to have a life outside of your friendship or you’ll end up way too dependent on each other. You’ll wake up one day with no friends, no hobbies, and no boyfriend once he realizes he needs more than just a relationship to be happy.
