6 relationship mistakes we’re all making

1) When our partner does something we don’t like, we give them the silent treatment.

Admit it, we’ve all done that. 

2) We storm off

Instead of working it out, we often decide to leave without giving our partner a chance to explain.

3) We label our partner

In the heat of the moment, we end up saying, ”You’re selfish”, instead of, ”That was a selfish thing you did.”

4) We make the argument black and white 

We don’t attempt to balance the situation. Instead, we attempt to reach conclusions by claiming they’re wrong and we are right. 

5) Instead of communicating with our partner, we vent out to our friends

The next time you have a fight, talk to your partner instead of sending screenshots of your Whatsapp chat to your BFF.

6) We attack with vicious comments that are designed to inflict pain 

Often, in an argument, we end up saying things we do not mean and later feel ashamed about it.
