The bond that two lovers share isn’t always rainbows and butterflies.
Every single one of us is a different person, and that difference can come in the way of your love life. Relationships can be complicated and demanding.
1. Don’t go chasing someone
Have you ever felt like you’re going unnoticed in your relationship? Here’s the deal: when you feel like your partner isn’t being as emotionally available as they should be and if they’re shutting you out, then don’t run after them. Sure, you can try, but to work so hard that your relationships turn into a rollercoaster ride where you’re always running after your significant other asking them for their love and attention, is unfair to you. So never, ever, go chasing someone.
2. Don’t wait for too long
Everyone you will love will carry their emotional baggage. People dating each other are no always on the same page about their relationship. If you feel like your girlfriend/boyfriend is struggling to be in it wholeheartedly and give it their all, then even though your love for them will make you want to wait for them and change their ways, don’t ever wait for too long to make that happen.
3. Never hesitate to communicate
Don’t ever break the rule of communicating with your partner. Communication is vital to a successful relationship. If and when something goes wrong between the two of you, don’t ever shut him/her out and choose not to talk about it. Letting things bottle up inside you is toxic for you and your relationship. If something keeps you up at night, no matter how hard you find it to open up to them, make sure you try to do it. Don’t underestimate the power of communication and let it all out.
4. Respect each other’s personal space
Always, always give your partner their own space. If your partner asks or expresses the need to be left alone, then leave them to themselves for a while. Everyone needs a certain level and amount of personal space. Taking someone’s private space and privacy away from them has never resulted in a healthy relationship, it can be damaging than it may seem in the moment. Don’t force the presence of yourself and your link onto your significant other. If anything, it’ll only result in them wanting even more personal space than before.
5. Don’t hold onto them if they’re going to be let go
Human nature works in complex and unpredictable ways. If someone falls in love, it doesn’t guarantee that they’ll stay in love. Their emotions, for you, may not be the same for the rest of their life. If the person you’re in a relationship with has a change of heart at some point, if they feel they can’t do it anymore and they want out, then you should let them go.
