Toxic Habits That Are Slowly Eating Your Relationship

We all understand the importance of relationships and the place they have in our lives. For some of us, it is like the constant support system that helps us get through even the toughest of times. For two people who are in love with each other and have mutually agreed to spend their lives together, for them, it is important that they respect the relationship and ensure it is a healthy one. There are some things which we may not do intentionally, but there is a possibility that in the near future they become the reason behind the failure of that relationship. These few habits are mentioned below and must always be avoided.

#1- Not resolving conflicts

There is no relationship where there are no fights. Fighting or arguing is a part of life and in fact, helps to build even stronger bonds. It shows how much the other person is ready to compromise. Whatever the case may be, whenever conflicts arise they should not be left unattended. Leaving them unsolved will do no good, and it will actually create bad feelings regarding the other person which may erupt sometime later.

#2- Not hesitating to hurt the other person’s feelings

Sometimes words can be more hurtful than physical aggression. This is true by all means; physical wounds can be healed but what we say to the other person stays in their mind for a long time. In relationships where both the guy and girl are emotionally invested, in that situation both should take great care that they don’t say anything which hurts his/her feelings. If there is an issue then fighting is a healthy option, taking the anger out is recommended but with one thing in mind that none of those words hurt the feelings. And this is usually when someone starts to taunts or gives third person references. This should always be avoided.

#3- Being willing to end it

Every relationship has its bad time, but both should know that it is temporary and not for a long time. In any case, neither of them should initiate the talk of ending it. If anyone of them does think such a thing and brings it up, then it would literally destroy the whole essence of their bond. This will be the time when the purity of that relationship will be long gone, and somehow it would just feel like a formality. No one should ever even think of ending a relationship.

#4- Not accepting your partner’s flaws

No one is perfect, and perfection in itself is a questionable thing. Love means that you are ready to accept the other person with all their imperfections and flaws because their presence alone is enough to keep you going. In relationships, therefore, you should learn to accept your partner’s flaws and all that they are not good at. In fact, they should try to help them overcome that weakness instead of pointing it out.

These are some of the basic things that should always be avoided to ensure a healthy relationship otherwise you might lose your love.
