Some people stay emotionally unavailable to protect their hearts. They walk away before they allow any attachment.
It takes two people to be in a relationship and both of you should be contributing to making things work together on a daily basis. It is not one person’s job to maintain or control the partnership. If you are finding that you are ending up in relationships where you are always giving more than you are receiving, it is time to get to the bottom of why you allow yourself to end up here.
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.
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.
Anyone can be amazing for a short period of time, and they can actually really mean what they say in the beginning. The big problem with a really fast love attraction is that these relationships typically end just as fast. This happens a lot when the sex is super hot from the first few dates! It can lure you in under a false pretense.
