We don’t get out of it, nor do we try to communicate and change it for the better. But if you think about it, the direction of your relationship is in your own hands.
Every time you find yourself in the wrong path, you can steer yourself towards the right direction through better understanding, or you can let go of the wheel and find a new romance. So if one of you isn’t happy, both of you need to work together to fix the relationship.
A partner who tells you they know best, or that you don’t know how you really feel, isn’t showing that they trust you.
It’s also important to keep in mind that in a healthy relationship, you can trust that no matter what comes up your partner won’t react in a way that threatens your safety or harms you.
However, being the smart woman that you are, you find it important to address and eliminate all doubt in your mind before continuing any further.
It is impossible to have an emotional connection with someone if you cannot trust them.
It is unfortunate though, that we live in a world that takes lying to someone lightly.
Trust can’t be built if only one partner is willing to do this and the other isn’t. So, as your relationship progresses, ask yourself: We’re not just talking about being there physically, but emotionally, too. Are they sensitive to your problems, worries and fears?
Do they show compassion and genuinely care about you?
