We always think perfect relationships exist, which is not the case. This is because people are very complicated, especially when trying to connect with each other.
If you feel like your relationship is having ups and downs, it doesn’t mean its broken. Your relationship can still be saved through communication, willingness to grow together and respect for each other. It’s true that you can’t try to save all relationships, but there are those you can try at least.
Below are signs that your relationship is worth saving:
- YOU ARE BOTH SENSITIVE TO EACH OTHER’S NEEDS
The fact that you might not be happy in a relationship because your partner is not, is the greatest news ever. This means that if you didn’t care about the relationship and your partner then you would just be undertaking your daily activities normally without feeling anything. This, therefore, suggests that there is a chance that your relationship can be saved until that time where nobody will no longer care.
The relationship is not over until that time that the connection between you and your partner will loosen. Unless one of you cut that connection, your relationship can still be saved.
- THERE’S MORE TO YOUR RELATIONSHIP, NOT SEX ONLY.
One of the good things about sex is that it can be learned. If you and your partner have both emotional and intellectual connection but the physical connection is lacking, then, of course, your relationship can be saved.
As long as you are interested in fulfilling your partner’s needs you can do it. And your partner’s satisfaction will make you happy.
You can initiate eroticism in your everyday routine. You can sex chat and flirt the whole day. You can engage in activities like cooking together and give each other a massage after that. If your sexual life is hindered by other things such as stress at work, its better you inform your partner so that they know. They can as well suggest ways you can relieve the burden.
- BOTH OF YOU ARE WILLING TO CHANGE AND PROGRESS ON
There is nothing good about a relationship that needs you to bend over backward to accommodate your partner. A relationship that is built on codependency cannot be saved.
There will only be changed in one way. This only happens with time and when you are close with an individual. You should be able to get used to every situation that life brings.
Your relationship can be saved if both of you can talk about what’s going on and how it’s affecting your relationship. Ask yourself what you can do to repair the rifts that the changes have impacted.
- YOU ARE BOTH FREE TO COMMUNICATE YOUR WANTS AND NEEDS TO EACH OTHER
Your relationship can be saved if you are willing to share your unhappiness with your partner or comprehend your partner’s unhappiness.
Communicating healthily with your partner allows you to be there for each other without jealousy or ego getting involved. Be sensitive to what they are going through and don’t be rude to them.
Your relationship has an optimistic look if both of you are willing to pay attention to each other and hear what the other is saying respectfully and with an open mind. Honest communication is the foundation of every relationship. That’s the reality.
- YOU FEEL SAFE AND SECURE WITH YOUR PARTNER
I know you wouldn’t like to be with someone who makes you feel unappreciated, unloved and someone who makes you question your self-worth. There are insecurities in every relationship especially due to past experiences, but this doesn’t mean that your relationship has no direction. The relationship can still be saved as long as you and your partner are not actively using those insecurities against each other.
In an unhealthy relationship, there is a high chance of a partner taking advantage of your insecure situation to make you feel bad since they know you’re vulnerable.
In a healthy relationship, there are insecurities but if you have a very understanding partner then they won’t trigger them. Your relationship will survive as long as you are honest and respect each other.
