10 Things That Can Ruin A Relationship
Any kind of relationship does not come easy in life especially the one where two people decide to share their lives together. People often forget that everybody is diligent and unique in their own way and therefore living and sharing a life requires some compromises, lot of understanding and of course the love and passion for that someone special. Today where every individual is ﬁghting for their own identity we oft forget that having a partner by our side while we ﬁnd our ways though the maze of life is like a blessing and therefore it is important that we do not take that person for granted and therefore live a life which is ﬁlled with happy moments along with our better half.
If there is one thing we all want in our lives after money is having the love that makes our lives safe, secure and worthwhile beautiful journey. Many of us battle with the realities of life to save our breaking relationships and try hard to make them work. But what we don’t realize is that there are some things which slowly suck away the life out of that relationship. If we could just avoid doing those things maybe we would not take the love of the people to a sudden death sentence.
To list a few we have come up with following things that can ruin your relationship and if you are doing any of these then simply DON’T DO them because the love you have found is worth ﬁghting for.
1. Being Too Selﬁsh
One of the major things that is ruining relationships these days is the fact that everybody is selﬁsh. In this fast moving world where all people want is to make them themselves known and heard they have to work pretty hard and for that reason they ﬁrst and foremost think about their own self.
When such a thing is okay to have a great career or successful profession it deﬁnitely does not work in personal life. In marriage or in relationship it is important that you are selﬂess and believe in giving away your whole self in order to have long lasting love.
The more selﬁsh you get the more interest the other person loses in you. If there is one thing that destroys love is selﬁshness and solely putting oneself in the forefront instead of the other. It is needful to remember that in a relationship it is never about “I” but “We”.
2. Not Paying Attention About Appearance
Once we are committed we start taking our partners for granted. We hardly pay attention to personal grooming or take care of our appearance and looks and think that since we have a partner who would love us no matter what why do all the work? This idea is absolutely wrong.
It is normal for any long term relationship to lose its spark and charm over a period of time and in situations like this it is important that both partners make that little eﬀort which may rekindle the romance in their lives and give freshness and new avatar to the dull relationship. Such things are so small yet they have huge impacts. Things like having a new haircut or dressing diﬀerently or simply putting on your little black dress for your guy, surprising your girl with a new look might just bring the element of excitement in your life and work out in a perfect way to add a pinch of happiness and romance to your lives.
3. Cutting The Communication
For any relationship to survive and have a long healthy life communication serves as a great help. Most relationships today are ruined because people have stopped talking to each other and worst they have stopped listening as well.
For every problem you face in your relationship it is said and advised that the solutions come from talking it out and coming to conclusions which otherwise cannot be made.
Cutting all communications mostly lead to assumptions and this dangerously affects the bond. When we don’t talk to our partners a wall of silence is created between the two individuals that erects a barrier in their love. People have become so engrossed in their virtual life and existence that talking to one another seems like a big task. And when such situation arises the relationship bond is dangling very loosely.
4. Bad Habits
It is seen these days that people are so fond of their lifestyle that they hardly think about making changes to it and compromising. From carefree single life to a committed relationship a whole lot of things and the scenarios change.
For such changes to happen in an easy way it is hoped that people give up certain things from their lifestyle and adjust accordingly. From various addictions (alcohol, gambling and porn) to things that might hamper the trust in the relationship it is needful that the partner knows that it is time to let go of bad habits or else they will destroy whatever good you have between you and your partner.
Often it is said that it is essential that as the relationship grows a person needs to be more evolved and matured and for this reason only it is important that bad habits are thrown away and the start of new things with your partner should be looked at for the future.
5. Not Enough Space To Breathe
Partners in a relationship mostly takes clinginess as a sign of love and compassion which is absolutely an absurd idea. Every individual needs personal space which sometimes does not involve the other partner. And to make relationships breathy and airy it is important that both the partners give valid space and let the other person have their time as and when required.
Also another mistake partner’s make which ruins the love is letting friends and family into the relationship in order to seek their expert advice which often turns out to be a ruining element. When a relationship is made of two people it hardly makes any sense to involve outsiders to solve their problems.
6. Money Matters
If sharing life becomes a thing in a relationship; one should understand that with sharing life come other responsibilities too.
Suddenly every decision you take is for two people and not for single one and in the same way, all the important matters also consists of two people now. Out of all the matter, money is the only element which has the power to ruin what you have. Ladies consistently over spending the budget and men being too miser is what makes matter worse.
Hence it is advised to never mix love and money together and it’s always been harder to talk things out before making any money decisions.
7. Dullness And Boring Routine
Life has become so predictable in today’s world that people get bored easily. The monotonous routines and same occurrences over and over again make life and relationship pretty dull and grey.
In times like these when partners become stale in relationships because doing the same thing over and over becoming predictable it causes a slow and dreadful death of the love and bond.
What partners do wrong mostly is not trying new things and adopting new habits which could save their drowning relationship. People have become so bored that they hardly try to save what they have and this aspect of losing effort in the relationship destroys the couple.
8. Complaining Unnecessarily
This unnecessary urge to control everything and everyone around has made humans mechanic robots with high expectations. And when those expectations are not met we start to complain and put the other person on the pedestal by asking questions.
Complaining unnecessarily to your partner about things that must be according to your expectation is silly and wrong and has the power of finishing up a healthy relationship.
This situation mainly arises because we want other person to be perfect and forget that perfection is an illusion and honestly quite a boring concept. Degrading or discounting the other person and complaining about whatever they are doing wrong damages everything.
9. Being Over Critical And Trying To Change The Other Person
In every relationship there are lot of phases where couples go through to take their relationship journey farther. In the early stages they experience the honeymoon phase where everything is filled with rainbows, unicorns, love hearts and candies. The romance is at its peak and all the mushy things seem too much romantic.
Soon this phase ends and reality hits. During the real face to face scenarios couples often find every little detail about each other which irritates them and try to change the other person.
Suddenly the way they dress, talk, socialize or live are the things that get on their nerves. They become over critical of the other person and wishes to change the whole persona of their partner which ironically was the thing they fell in love with. So in the end phase either one of the partner gets irritated and frustrated of the over analysis and criticism and gets out of the relationship or if they change, lacking or losing confidence they definitely don’t remain the same ones and this causes much bigger problems and ruins the relationship.
10. Distrust And Blame Game
When two people decide to come together to create a relationship they form into couples only after having few things which make them a perfect companion for each other. And one of those important elements of the relationship is trust.
Most of today’s relationships are not able to survive because of the scarcity of trust. With so much going on in everybody’s life and so many changes constantly the insecurities and fears run hand in hand. During such time it is obvious that partners are not able to trust the other one easily. Because distrust comes up, another evil which harms relationship is that of blame game.
Everybody is so obsessed with their own identity that they do not at any cost want to compromise anything for the sake of love and therefore they want themselves to be perfect one who cannot make mistakes.
It is silly to assume that anyone can have all the qualities and would be perfect. Blaming others for the problems is like going around the bush and not finding solutions. Such attitude and thinking often disrupts the easy going relationships and ruins everything.
Everybody craves for love in their life and when they have it in form of a loving partner and stable relationship they start taking things for granted and often do things that damage the soul of the relationship and slowly takes away the life and fun out of the bond they share.
It is said that lucky are those who found true love and if true love is too unrealistic in today’s era at least having someone by your side through thick and thin is worth everything.
But so many things come in the way of relationship that it all starts to fall apart. Mostly people don’t pay enough attention to the little things they do which might harm and destroy their relationship and therefore falling off and ruining of relationships happens.
To all those who have their ‘someone special’ and wish to nurture it and make it blossom with happiness we advise you to start taking care of the little things. When it’s about love, compromises, adjustments and understanding goes a long way and if you wish to save the special part of your life know that everything is fair in love and war. Controlling anger and spreading love is what can make your relationship healthy.
If you let go off your insecurities, be better friends with your partner, have respect and love for each other and keep an open mind to try new things nothing can have the power to ruin things for you. All you have to do is be a selfless and positive person who believes in spreading happiness.
