5 Things We All Do That Slowly Destroy Relationships
You’re entering a new stage of your relationship when you both feel
comfortable being yourself once the butterflies in your tummy begin to
If you’re not careful, you could get too at ease and start to forget why
you’re in a relationship in the first place.
Things don’t always have to result in a major fight; sometimes it’s just a lot
of bad behaviors that, while they wouldn’t be a big concern on their own, have
a negative impact on relationships before you even notice it.
Here are 5 things people do that erode relationships over time:
1. Ignore each other
Relationships are dynamic, living things that need daily care and attention.
Think of your relationship as a garden that needs to be tended to regularly.
If you treat your relationship like a garden, it will rapidly get neglected
if you just tend to it when you feel like its regular, sometimes daily
weeding, watering, and fertilizing are required to keep it, you must put in
effort. Your partnership is the same as any other.
2. Keep a grudge
In all aspects of life, including relationships, forgiveness is crucial.
Errors are made by people.
You’ll struggle to be happy in the future if you can’t let go of things
after they apologize and a lot of time has passed.
If you do apologize to your partner, be sincere about it! Don’t continually
bring up the past. Never keep grudges at all.
3. Always needing to be right
Nobody is right 100% of all time. Being able to say you’re sorry requires you
to be able to admit when you did something wrong.
partner is always wrong, which is just never the case.

4. Not spending enough time together
We’re discussing quality here rather than quantity. What you do while you’re
together matters a lot more than how many hours you spend in each other’s
A good connection requires effort. Spend quality time with your partner,
whether it be on a date, a stroll, or just by sharing a bottle of wine and
talking about your days.
5. Attempting to sway your spouse
This one I’ve never really understood. Why would you strive to change your
lover when you fell in love with them just the way they are? It’s possible
that your partner isn’t the perfect one for you, if you can’t seem to accept
them for who they are — flaws and all.
People do change sometimes, but it has to be because they want to, not because
you forced them into it.
Are you finding it difficult to understand your partner? Check yourself
and see if you do any of the above and then adjust, you shall see
That’s all for now, do have a nice day ahead.
