Making errors because you tried something new, is a good thing because you are not staying stagnant in a place that is unfulfilling. You are making an effort to evolve and change up what isn’t serving you anymore. This is a strength, not a weakness!
Everyone should have boundaries and respect for themselves, therefore having some expectations on how you want to be treated in your partnership should always be a number 1 priority. You certainly don’t want to be taken for granted or walked over because you don’t have a voice about how you want to be respected.
We all want to feel heard and validated in our partnerships and the couples who understand the importance of this on a regular basis, are the ones who continually evolve throughout their years together. I can promise you from my own experience, it is always worth putting in the energy and prioritizing the love you share. It is a wonderful and very worthwhile investment that continues to give back.
Being open to listening to each other’s points of view can help a couple think outside the box once in a while. This is a good thing! We can all get stuck in our own belief systems and become too ridged at times in our lives.
The trouble with this repetitive thinking is that it sabotages your chances of finding a loving partnership due to holding onto this judgmental attitude. Not all men are the same and not all women are the same! Really, how is that working out for anyone when a big percentage of men and women believe this to be true?
