Too many of us get comfortable in the wrong relationship because we continue to ignore the red flags. Here are my top 5 warning signs that your current relationship is very likely the wrong relationship for you.
1 One or both of you haven’t healed from your trauma and don’t know who you really are. The symptoms are the insecurities, constant fights about the same issues, and constantly feeling lost with no purpose in life.
This is the #1 source of all relationship issues. Eventually, both of you are going to have to address any inner trauma to experience your best love life, whether the current relationship is meant to be or not.
2 You overlooked dealbreakers, in the beginning, thinking things would be able to work out. Accepting an undesirable characteristic about someone you let into your intimate spaces doesn’t make you grow to like them more. It’s inviting lifelong stress and resentment into your lifestyle.
3 Every disagreement turns into a full-scale fight or argument. Having a difference of opinion and even a dispute is normal. What’s not normal is when it always results in emotions running high and one or both of you reacting in ways that only further harm the relationship.
A partner who is always looking to place blame is also a close cousin. Every couple should be able to have uncomfortable conversations in a healthy relationship.
4 There is no trust. If there is no trust, throw the whole situationship away. Seriously. If both of you aren’t making real efforts to rebuild any lost trust you are only signing yourself up for miserable company and there is no good justification for staying in a depressing relationship.
5 Only one of you is putting in the work. It takes two. No matter how much weight just one of you carries the relationship will still tank if both partners aren’t on board.
If only one person is growing, eventually they will outgrow the relationship and resent the other partner as a weight holding them down.
It’s essential that both of you have a vested interest in meeting each other’s needs and making the relationship the best it can be.
