Some people stay emotionally unavailable to protect their hearts. They walk away before they allow any attachment.
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.
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.
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.
If the love between you both isn’t reciprocated after a reasonable of amount of time, you may be setting yourself up for a big disappointment. You need to be honest with yourself about what’s really going on because you KNOW when they are into you! Fantasizing over what you hope will happen isn’t reality, and it will keep you stuck in a place you should never allow yourself to be.
