I often talk about business, but in my world, business is closely connected to my personal relationships. I did go into my business for my family so they are a huge part of it!
That being said, let’s talk about the common mistakes made in relationships and what you can do about them.
Remember that each relationship is unique in its own way, which is why it’s important not to compare what you have with anyone else and to nurture the journey you are on with people you are in a relationship with – whether it’s with your husband, your kids, or your friends.
You Just Stop Trying
It happens to the best of us. Relationships are all about give-and-take wherein both parties are willing to put the effort in nurturing the bond. However, life can sometimes get in the way and we get too tired to even try to connect. When this happens, take a break, but get right back in the game!
Flirt with your partner, tell them how much they mean to you and just generally make them feel wanted. A good rule to remember is that you should never stop doing what you did in the beginning of the relationship. What did you do to make them fall for you? Keep doing those things!
You see, people appreciate effort. A lot of relationships can be fixed if both parties give it a little bit more attention. It’s not a difficult thing to do, and it’s not asking that much of you if you love the person like you say you do.
You Forgot About What You Had
When times are tough, we tend to forget all about what we had before. If you find yourself in this situation, remember that your relationship is likely not made up of only bad times. You’re just going through a rough patch, but that’s exactly what it is, just a patch.
Think back to the times where you were happy with your partner, before even considering hiring divorce solicitors just because you had a disagreement. There are going to be fights, and sure, some of them are going to be bad, but that doesn’t mean it’s worth throwing away all of the good with it.
You Seek Comfort Elsewhere
This is a big one and where a lot of things go wrong if not prevented.
When things aren’t going great, never ever seek comfort in the arms of another. NEVER!
Sure, you can talk to your friends about is going on, but going behind your partner’s back with someone else is a big no-no. This is the kind of thing that kills relationships, and you won’t be able to play it off as a simple mistake. It’s a big mistake, and it’s a choice that you’ve made to seek the comfort of someone else rather than communicate with the person you love.
If you want to create and nurture a loving space for you and your partner, do your best to avoid these three common mistakes made in relationships. And if you ever find yourself falling trap to one of them, fix it as soon as possible! As I always say, it’s better late than never.
