Love will never be perfect. Most relationships start out on a high, things are so easy, and you’re so in love. Before you know it, things can take a turn for the worse.
You wake up one day, disliking the person you’re lying next to.
Somebody got comfortable, somebody got complacent, someone was taken for granted and you grew apart. Things have changed…you’re unhappy and now love hurts.
Small signs or subtle differences may have you questioning or feeling like things are off track.
Do kisses and hugs feel different? Have you noticed them coming home later or spending less time with you? Maybe there’s a wall between you now that simply wasn’t there before.
Have you found evidence of them cheating or do you just have a gut feeling that’s telling you something is wrong? Maybe you’ve caught them in a senseless lie that now has you questioning everything.
Or maybe you know your spouse has been unfaithful in the past but you’ve chosen stay together. Now you’re finding it too hard to get over it and move on without resentment, mistrust and bitterness.
Maybe it’s not cheating…but other problems have begun to arise.
Are you dealing with double standards in your relationship? Can he/she get away with things that you can’t? You’re having the same arguments over and over again with no resolution.
Do you feel you care more or put in way more effort than your partner? You’re trying harder than they are to make this work.
Maybe you feel your partner is not holding up their end of the bargain when comes to finances, work or the children and you’re carrying the load with little to no help or appreciation.
Have you discovered that your goals, dreams and ambitions may be different than theirs?
You want to stay but simply don’t know how.
Often times, couples argue without the intention of understanding one another, but to prove their own point. They don’t feel they’re partner is really listening to them. How do you progress towards a solution when both people think they’re right or justified in their actions? It’s possible.
