relationship blunders

As I’ve always said, let the past be the past. You cannot travel back in time and prevent yourself from making mistakes. The good news is that our past presents itself as an opportunity to change the future. And the future is what counts.

Your actions of today will define who you are tomorrow. If you continue to move ahead in life without the necessary knowledge needed to succeed in love and relationships, how do you expect to find the happiness and success you deserve?

You simply won’t as long as you continue to do these same blunders over and over again.

In this article, I’ve listed 7 of the biggest relationship blunders that people like you and me do consistently that bring us down. I have spent a considerable amount of time overcoming these errors so that I may see the success that I’ve been fortunate enough to see.

Read through every single on of these and work on fixing these errors if you find yourself doing them.

bad habits relationships

I recently wrote an article that was all about habits that increase relationship happiness. Today’s article is going the other way, it’s about bad habits that drain relationship happiness.

A positive, successful life is all about developing good habits. With good habits comes positive, happy relationships. So much of everything you’ll read about when it comes to improving your life is about how to develop these good habits that other people use successfully in their lives.

Depending on your upbringing, you may have several life-crippling bad habits. These can be small things as well as big things. And when you get into a relationship, these habits can have a negative effect on the relationship and can lower your attractiveness in your lover’s eyes.

Being in a relationship basically means you and your partner are committing to each other. Over time, you start to notice the habits of one another. If these are bad habits, they begin to add up. Think of it as a scoring system. The more bad habits you have, the more negative points going against you. And not all habits are created equal. Sometimes all it takes is one mistake to ruin a relationship (such as breaking trust).

Let’s discuss what I believe to be the 6 worst habits that ruin relationships:

relationship warning signs

One of the most healthiest skills in life and loving relationships is learning how to surround yourself with people that make you a better person. Unfortunately, most people tend to keep or latch on to friends and lovers that really do nothing to improve the quality of your life.

Do you have people in your life that are toxic, negative, trolls and constantly negative?

I used to have a lot of friends like this growing up. I still know people in their 30′s that are constantly bashing others, have nothing fun and positive to talk about, they whine and complain, they can be very critical. I limit my exposure to these people as much as possible just as you should.

In this article, you will learn what I believe to be the top 5 warning signs that you’re in a bad relationship. As you read these, what improvements could you make on your end? Which skills are you lacking?

relationship truths

People have been struggling in relationships since the beginning of time, right? Even after thousands of years, men and women continue to struggle figuring out how to date in their current society.

Some people get it pretty well, but most people struggle. I really believe that it just has to do with a lack of real knowledge and experience. Some people get more experience than others, some people spend a lot of time learning and working on themselves.

Then you have others that don’t spend any time on themselves and simply go with the flow and hope for the best. If you’re the type of  person that continues to live the same way year after year, then this could be a big reason why you’re not getting the relationship success you wish you could have.

To continue my pattern of lists, here are 7 relationship truths that you need to attach deep within your core and remind yourself how important they are to remember:

At the end of the day, men and women want happiness in our relationships. Whether it’s with our lovers, our friends, our colleagues or our bosses, we generally would like to be in environments where we are happy.

BPD Marriage

Being in a long-term relationship and married to someone with a personality disorder such as BPD (borderline personality disorder) can be an immense undertaking, especially if you have no prior knowledge to what you’re up against.

Relationships in general are difficult for most people. Add BPD-related issues to the mix and it’s like throwing more gasoline on an out of control blaze.
