Not replying to texts promptly
I know the feeling of texting someone and getting a response from them 30 minutes later. Yeah, it kind of sucks but let us be realistic, this person has a life and they have things to do. As a result of this, they are bound to take some time before getting to you.
If your message is not an emergency, then just relax, they will get back when they are ready.
Honesty is the only way to grow as a couple. If you are with someone who cant tell you the truth then there is a huge problem.
Most people do think that being nice in a relationship is what keeps it all together but, I’m afraid to break it to you that its a problem.
It is very normal and okay to have your feelings hurt once in a while in a relationship but, you have to be cautious about what you can take.
This, however, isn’t an excuse to be mean and insensitive.
Prioritizing other things
It’s actually more concerning when your partner is the only thing surrounding your life. It can be toxic and suck the spark out of the relationship. Be happy when you’re not the center of attention all the time because you won’t have to carry all the weight of making your partner happy.
Spending time apart
Spending time together definitely boosts a relationship, spending too much time does the opposite. It erodes your individuality and independence which is damaging to a relationship.
It’s important that you spend time apart to focus on your own strengths. Otherwise, it becomes easy to lose yourself when you don’t have any sense of independence.
No one is perfect, we all have flawed characters in us and so are relationships. none is perfect. as a result of this, we have to accept each other flaws for us to have relationships in the first place. There is nothing toxic about accepting flaws.
However, know what your boundaries are and make it clear. If you can’t stand a cheating man, there’s nothing wrong with leaving so know the difference.
