Relationship Advice – Don’t Over Analyze And Find Problems Where None Exist

Some things we can take for granted in life such as the job we have, the house we live in and our families.  This is especially true of people who are in long relationships, one can sometimes get so caught up in the routine that they have expectations or have feelings of incompleteness that may not exist truly, but just are a symptom of not stepping back and looking at all that you truly have.  One such example is that there are many facets to a relationship, these include but are not limited to: Friendship, Support, Love, Attraction…etc

If you find yourself lacking or thinking something is missing, then focus on everything that your relationship does have and then devise a conclusion like this:  Am I just being picky, or is there something really wrong?  Is there something I can do to alleviate how I feel about the situation?  Remember it is easier to blame and point at others, but many issues can often develop and be caused by ones own self.

My point is if you take your relationship as a whole and have few complaints about a few issues, then this is the nature of a good and healthy relationship.  Don’t over analyze your relationship to death, and don’t expect that you will be happy with 100% of the relationship, 100% of the time.  People are people and relationships are give and take and you get out of them what you put into them for the most part, so instead of expecting anything, put more effort into the relationship and talk with your partner about how you are feeling.

Communication is always key.

Just one of my insights for today.
