Never saying, Thank You. If you are not hearing these words daily, you are being taken for granted! Saying “Thank you” to someone is letting the other person know that you appreciate what they have done for you. So come on people be thankful, before that nice person says, “Screw you.”
Always doing what your partner wants to do. Are there times when you want to do something as a couple with your friends, but it is always your partner’s friends you do things with? You are being taken for granted. Don’t be a victim, speak up and stick up for yourself.
You have flat spoiled your partner. It is very easy to fall into this trap. You love the other person, and are always going out of your way to please them. But you’re not getting anything back any more. You really need to sit down and have a chat with your partner and let them know. And stop spoiling them. Go on strike if you have too, then they will see how important you are to have around.
Being a passive person. Are there little things your partner does that you don’t let them know about? It’s easier to just go with the flow. You are scared to make any waves. There is going to be a title wave if you don’t speak up. People do not read minds. Get those little things of your chest before they eat you alive and mess up the relationship.
They are off doing their thing when they have free time. You are going to get real tired of this and the more you let them get away with it the more they are going to go on their marry way. You are a couple and to build the relationship they don’t need their time and space all the time.
You are doing all the work 24/7. This is called a partnership and work is to be shared. You have to sit down and make a list of what has to be done and share that list. This goes for men that are working all day and women that are stay at home moms. You both get tired, so come on help each other out.
Never discussing things, because life is too busy. Big NO NO here. Life is busy, but you can never get so busy that you aren’t talking to each other. Everyone needs a little lovin and shoulder to lean on at times. Get that communication going and listen to each other. After all you don’t want to lose your lovin connection.
If you are single, but just dating and you communicate how you are feeling, and nothing changes, I would go looked for love in another place, because you will always be taken for granted and that dating partner appears to be a little self centered.
As for you married couples we fall into the trap of just taking each other granted, because we get comfortable and don’t even realize that we are doing this. Hope these tips will make you realize what is happening and start appreciating that beautiful partner of yours again.
I challenge you to write out a thank you note to that wonderful love of yours and let them know how much they are loved and appreciate.
Blessing to you all,
