What do you think? I just read an article (link at the bottom) about a woman whose partner does not show her the romantic gestures she desired. I say, “desired” and not “desires” because she presumably has given up on her romantic ideals. Do you think that one partner should give up their dream of romance because it doesn’t come naturally to the other partner? This article says yes, and to be grateful for what you DO have in your relationship.
Personally, I believe anyone can LEARN, grow and improve, *if* they are willing to put in some effort. Just like improving your eating habits, increasing exercising, or making other healthy lifestyle changes require self-discipline, thought, and effort. Every medical expert will encourage you to make healthy changes that aren’t always easy or feel *natural*. The same is true for our mental health and our social skills. I encourage you to take the health of your relationship seriously and don’t allow bad habits to create festering “dis-ease” between you and your partner.
We can appreciate the current positives in our relationship AND continue to grow and mature into better partners. As a relationship expert, I can tell you that making small changes over time will strengthen and improve your relationship. Those changes will be cumulative and determine your relationship happiness for a lifetime. 💞💪🏽🌈 #RelateGreat
