You signed up to be in a relationship with your partner so it is the responsibility for both of you to maintain and nurture the love you share together. If you don’t check out emotionally, or let things bubble up and fester, you will be surprised at how easily you can resolve any argument that arises in your relationship.
You fell in love with each other for a reason. Love needs to be nurtured, so don’t let things fizzle out. A partnership is a two-person job with both people doing their part. A few small gestures every day keep the relationship respect intact. There is nothing to complain about if you are both always making an effort to show you care. The little things are so important.
There is always a happy medium that can be implemented to keep your partner and your best friend on civil terms with each other. Be realistic about why things are a problem between them and hear what they are telling you.
Relationships are about partnerships, but each person is an individual. A couple can be on very different paths, encountering various challenges along the way. If your partner opens up to you about a specific problem they’re having, or if they’re struggling with their health or well-being, be supportive.
When you unconditionally respect your partner it is easy to hold on to the love you feel for each other because you grow together rather than grow apart.
When you ignore the big red flags in your life you are not in alignment with yourself and your needs.
