Relationships are a give and take. We are quick to notice when our partner is taking more than giving. And then we immediately ask the same old questions:
“Why is my partner acting up?”
“Why doesn’t my partner understand me?”
“Does my partner still love me?”
“Is my partner about to break up with me?”
“How can I make my partner listen to me?”
Those are all valid questions, especially if you just came out of yet another fight that ended in bites and tears. But you will be unlikely to find the right answers to those questions. You might not find any conclusive answers at all.
If you look closely, you’ll notice that all those questions focus on one thing only: Your partner.
Let’s just assume for a second that it’s not your partner, who’s at fault here, but you. Shocking, right?
