Its very easy to sit on the outside and pass judgements about other people's relationships. "Why dont they just break up?" or "They are so much better apart." These statements can be heard from anyone's best friend oy sybling. The truth is, you dont know the truth.
DISCLAIMER: I am not excusing abusive relationships. If you happen to find yourself in that situation of course I encourage you to reach out and seek help, or get as far away as possible.
Relationships are hard work. They can bring you to the brink of sanity and make you want to quit so badly, but that person is your #1, your partner in crime, your A team. Quitting on them isn't an option, there is too much love and partnership.
Recently my boyfriend and I have been in a rough spot. We can't seem to find the right balance and we both have a lot of stress happening outside of our relationship. Many times this is taken out on the other person. We are both short tempered during periods of stress and this can translate to arguements which we both almost immediately regret.
I have two rules in our relationship:
#1: Treat the other the way you want to be treated.
#2: Never go to bed angry.
They really work. Keep it simple, and be in love. Dont judge anyone elses situation, because no matter how much they complain and they struggle, they may not be going to bed mad, and thats a hell of a lot better than some people are doing. 😉
