While most of us try to stay positive about relationships, reality always seems to sucker punch us back to our senses. The fact remains that despite all the advice we seek or the knowledge that we have, most relationships fail. There is simply no way to argue this fact. When it comes to creating and sustaining a lasting relationship, most of us are our own worst enemies.
"What am I doing wrong?" Everyone has asked this question at some point. We tend to think that there is a simple answer to such a complex question; however, there is none. There are many things that could lead to the demise of a relationship, so trying to pinpoint one issue or self-analyze could be difficult. So maybe it would help to point out signs that the relationship is failing before it is too late.
We all want to believe that we could easily sense the end of a relationship coming. But the truth is, many of us cannot and need a little help. To that end, here are three ways to ruin a relationship and have a one-way ticket to splitsville.
1. Enjoying the honeymoon.
2. Picking wrong battles.
3. Believing in yourself.
The good news is that these three does not necessarily mean a relationship is over. There is always hope, especially when both partners recognize the signs and have decided to allow their relationship flourish. The best advice is for each partner to talk out their concerns and learn when and how to compromise. The relationship will work if both parties are committed on taking action to change it.
