Have you found yourself questioning the country of your relationship lately? Are you stuck wondering why you feel a lack of love for your partner? Perhaps you’re struggling to understand what has basically changed, and why you don’t feel almost a’ in-love’ as you used to?
Removing the Gauze of Perception in Your Relationship
( Take note; I’m talking about healthy relationships, with an equal share of respect and love for their partners .)
I believe a lot of people are blind( or naive) to the fact that romantic love and relationships involve effort.
They won’t allow themselves to consider that it needs nurturing and a steady amount of work to flourish. The idea that you have to show up every day in order to foster your intimate bond seems too much.
When a relationship falls apart, certain things or realizations may happen. Perhaps it is that you feel you no longer have anything in common with one another. Maybe you’re constantly arguing with your significant other. Do you resent being in their presence more often than not? Have you stopped feeling attraction toward your partner?
All these issues are salvageable. We can come back from each of them. You just have to agree to put in the run!
The Simple Reason a Relationship May Fail
So what is the underlying cause at the heart of so many breakups?
Which then gives route to the aforementioned problems.
An idea so easy to comprehend but which we react to with anger because- surely not!- we would never intentionally let a good thing turning sour.
I’m talking about the kind of relationship where the loved-up honeymoon stage was so damn perfect. It may have lasted for some time. Maybe you even called your partner perfect, procuring them practically faultless( OMG! how can this be ?). Perhaps you were mesmerised and wrapped up in the blissful impressions of love you two share.
And then one day it stops feeling so rosy. You don’t like how you’re feeling in the relationship now.
Certain traits and characteristics you find quirky or captivating in your partner are now leaving you annoyed and frustrated.
Your partner is remote and you no longer know how to communicate with them. You believe it’s only going to get worse. The bickering, picking at each others’ flaws, a lack of gratitude for each other.
It goes on and on. Until you decide you’ve had enough.” It wasn’t meant to be[ this hard ].”
How This Impacts Your Relationship

turn toward one another, physically and emotionally. Always remain open to what your partner has to say.
one another, physically and emotionally. Always remain open to what your partner has to say. position things from your partner’s view. Listen and be understanding. Extra wisdom here is that understanding of your partner’s problem must precede you devoting them advice.
while you may disagree with what they say, you must respect them and their notion
respect them and their belief when voices start to raise, take a 5-20 minute breach from the conversation. Try to have it again when you are pacify and your thoughts collected. This may require you both to leave the space and be in different rooms until you’re ready to listen again.
always find time for a date. This can be done by pencilling in time for a weekly date night. Or, on a day off together, take your partner for a astonish outing. It always helps to have some trusted coffeehouse and restaurants on hand if you feel like feeing out. Or, on a sunny day, take advantage of the nice climate. Head to the beach or your favourite waterhole for the working day. Pack a basket with nibbles and snacks and you’re defined.
show physical affection and utilise intimate touch. Hold hands when sat together at dinner. Put an limb around their waist while strolling. Hug for an extended hour and actually sink into their embracing. Dedicate them kiss throughout the day- not just when saying hello or goodbye!
ask how their day was: a simple, but often underutilised question that is lost in your day-to-day. This is great to ask when you finish work. This allows you both to unload stressed of the working day and reconnect through understand.
be there for them: if you can tell that their vibe is off and they seem detached, it pays to ask how they’re really feeling. Sometimes it is hard to tell person what troubles you. So opening up the line of communication may be the exact sign needed to express what’s going on.
learn their love language: this may be a new idea to some. I’ve determined great understanding when looking at myself and my partner through the lens of a’ love language ‘. The 5 speeches are: terms of affirmation, acts of service, receiving gifts, quality period, and physical touch. Generally, your partner will speak a couple of these languages. So it pays to learn more about the specifics of how they give and receive love.
