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.
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.
Romance and intimacy needs to be nurtured by both of you. Don’t let it take a back seat to everything else. You and your partner should look forward to coming home to each other because you are happy together. Taking the time to prioritize each other and doing those small gestures that continually show love towards each other is the glue to a successful partnership.
Every relationship needs two willing parties to make it work. Changing everything all at once may not be possible, but with love, patience, teamwork, and prioritizing your partner, these are all great steps to making your relationship better and stronger.
