A great relationship is one where you are both there for each other, but you still have your own dreams, goals, and separate interests. Of course, you should always have each other’s back and support one another, but never give up who you are as a person for someone else.
For a relationship to work long-term, you both have to be on a similar page within most aspects of your partnership. Red flags are there to make you pay attention as a couple and find a compatible way to solve the roadblocks that happen in every relationship. We all go through them, but it is how maturely we handle them that will keep the love and respect alive in our partnerships.
If you are on the same page within your partnership, then go for it! If you have both openly expressed your love and what you want in your future, then you know where you stand with each other as a couple. Times are changing, and we are continually evolving as men and women, finally leaving some gender traditions behind. If you truly want something, make it happen. Don’t wait for others to make things transpire if it is really important to you.
Talking to your partner about their fears and helping them see the positive things in their life can really help them to move forward. Many people who play the victim often have insecurities and trust issues. They may also feel that others are out to attack them or criticize them. Their self-esteem is jeopardized due to this ongoing thinking, which can be very difficult to get out of.
Reciprocated trust in a partnership is imperative because it means you are both on the same page when it comes to sharing the deepest part of yourselves and allowing yourselves to be vulnerable. Being able to discuss your fears, dreams, and aspirations with your partner will always keep you close and connected.
Once you understand that you are OK being alone is when you will clearly see that you are worthy of having a healthy and reciprocated love relationship. Most people feel disconnected at certain times in their lives. This is totally normal and can actually be a motivating factor in improving your life when you are faced with a little hardship. You have the choice to stay in the negative mode in front of you or find ways to jump over the hurdles thrown in your path.
