The most common mistakes couples make in a relationship

It is not easy to break up with the partner you love and with whom you have spent a lot of time together, but did you know that most serious relationships end because of insignificant mistakes?

The good news is that you can handle and even avoid these mistakes with very little effort. Stop taking your partner for granted!

Mistakes couples do: They get lost in the relationship

At the beginning of the relationship, it is nice when you dedicate all your time to each other, and even neglect some individual hobbies, friendships, or routines. But it is wrong to be preoccupied with the relationship in the long run and lose interest in your friends, things you have done before, and personal interests. That will soon lead to boredom in the relationship. It is okay to have your needs, desires, and interests.

They ignore each other

Just because you live with your partner does not mean that you should not spend part of the day doing something just the two of you. You may spend the whole day in the same room, but if you do not talk and ignore each other, you do not benefit from this “hanging out”. So, make sure to pay attention to your partner, and spend quality time together.

Mistakes couples do: They avoid sensitive topics

Some topics seem to intimidate couples, they do not have enough confidence to say what they feel since they fear they will end up rejected or embarrassed. Moving in together, having children, living together are delicate topics for discussion. But, you still need to talk about these topics eventually, so neither of you ends up frustrated.

Do not suppress problems and tell your partner when you do not like something in the relationship. It is not a good idea to always avoid conflicts. If your partner does something wrong, without being aware of it, and you do not tell him, he/she will continue, and your anger will grow. Eventually, you will “explode” and have a much bigger, unnecessary argument.

Mistakes couples do: They stop being appreciative 

Sometimes people get used to their partner, so they stop appreciating all the effort they put into the relationship. For example, if your partner is constantly doing all household chores, do not act as it is not a big deal. Instead, show your gratitude, offer help, and tell your partner that you appreciate what he or she does for you. The same goes for many other things in a relationship – just because you have been together for a long time, does not mean that you should stop paying compliments to your partner or do some romantic gestures.

They have low self-esteem

Low self-esteem can cause a lot of problems in a relationship. First of all, people with low self-esteem often think that they are not good enough for their partner, so they constantly expect to be left behind. With this way of thinking, you will certainly not enjoy the moments with your partner. Also, jealousy often happens when people have low self-esteem, even when there is no reason for it. And we all know that jealousy is often the cause of relationship problems.

5 signs that you are in a toxic relationship

A toxic relationship will contaminate your happiness, self-esteem, and the way you see the world and yourself.

Being aware that you are in a toxic relationship is crucial in protecting yourself from breakage. Staying in a toxic relationship is self-destruction.

When you are in a healthy relationship, everything just works. Of course, there are bumps in the road, but you openly discuss your problems, make decisions together, and enjoy each other’s company. Most relationships start healthy, but bad feelings or bad features and insecurities of your partner can appear, poisoning the relationship.

And when you are in a toxic relationship, it can be harder to see red flags. We know that toxic relationships are not easy to leave, but if you are aware of the signs, it will be easier to claim back your power or end the relationship. 

Controlling behaviors

Does your partner ask where you are constantly? Do they become overly upset when you do not answer text messages immediately? Well, those are signs of controlling behavior. All that can contribute to a toxic relationship. Also, in some relationships, these controlling attempts may be a sign of abuse. 

Ignoring your needs

If you go along with everything your partner wants, even when those things are against your comfort level and wishes, it is a sign of a toxic relationship. Have you ever agreed to a vacation they planned for dates that are not convenient for you? It doesn’t matter if they did that intentionally or unintentionally. 

Another example is that they always want you to be available for them. So, over time you have stopped spending time with your family and friends, either to avoid explaining to them your unhealthy relationship or conflict with your partner. Alternatively, you find all your free time wrapped up in dealing with your partner.

Too much passive-aggressive is a sure sign of a toxic relationship

Passive-aggressive behavior is a cowardly move for control and an indirect attack. The toxicity lies in stealing your capacity to deal with issues directly. This behavior is subtle and disguised as something else, like manipulation disguised as permission “You go out and enjoy, while I stay at home all by myself,” or anger disguised as indifference “I am okay” or “Whatever”. However, the worst one is a villain disguised as a hero, “You do not have to go out, babe – you seem exhausted. Cook yourself a soup and I will have a drink with Jane by myself.” 

Over time, you will become aware that they manipulate you or even hurt you with this behavior, but it is not obvious enough to resolve the real issue. If it is something that upsets you, sure it is worth talking about, but passive-aggressive shuts down any possibility of this.

Privacy? What privacy?

Everyone deserves privacy and trust. And people in healthy relationships trust each other that it won’t be misused. Does your partner constantly go through your phone bills, texts, and receipts? Well, this shows a level of toxicity and control. It is demeaning. Your parents didn’t check you even when you were a teen. Now, you are an adult and do not need constant supervision.

Nothing gets resolved in a toxic relationship

We are aware that every relationship has its problems, but they get resolved. If a relationship is toxic, nothing gets resolved because the conflicts always end in an argument. You don’t think your partner will have the capacity to deal with the issue safely and that you will preserve the connection. If your relationship is like this, your needs will get buried, and you will become resentful.
