Have you been facing too many relationship problems in your love life? Does it feel more like a cage than a romantic world?
If yes, you’ve just landed in the right place.
Here I am with the third part of the relationship series: Top 13 most common relationship problems and their workarounds.
So, Without any further dues, let’s bring back the charm of love to your life and fix your relationship.
13 Relationship Problems And Their Quick Solutions
1. Lack of Trust
Trust is the foundation of every relationship. Be it friendship or relationship, both of them start with trust. It takes a lot of time to trust somebody, while it takes only a few moments for that trust to shatter completely.
If you feel that you or your partner have several trust issues, clarify them immediately before it’s too late.
You get what you give. If you have faith in your partner, your partner will have faith in you.
Always stay honest with your partner. If you’ve done something wrong by mistake, tell them. There’s no need to hide anything. If your partner understands you well, there won’t be any relationship problems.
The second most common relationship problem is miscommunication.
Ask yourself and your partner:-“Do both of you communicate openly and feel comfortable sharing everything?”
If the answer is NO, it is more likely that your relationship has a communication barrier.
Cause is where the true solution lies.
Think of the reason why both of you aren’t able to communicate effectively. Are you afraid of failure, things getting worse, or something like that?
Stop overthinking, overcome what’s in your head and vent it all out.
Trust me. Everything will be fine.😃
3. Too Many Conflicts
Daily conflicts and arguments might turn into a huge frustration in the long run. These daily quarrels might even lead to declining interest and feelings of forceful relationships.
If you feel that you have started having such conflicts even on the smallest matters, here’s the solution for you.
Handling conflicts with love, patience, and calmness solves them all.
Try to remain calm instead of creating panic when any such situation happens. Have a soft conversation with your partner. Try to convince them to find a solution to the problem instead of an argument. Further, control the situation as per the needs.
4. An Overwhelming Number of Restrictions
Does your relationship feel like a cage to you? Are you unable to spend quality time with your friends because your partner does not let you do so?
If yes, there are some mental barriers in your partner’s head. Maybe, your lover has a feeling of insecurity that you will get attracted to someone else.
So, here’s a workaround for you.
Quick Solution: Assure your lover that your friends are nothing more than simple friends to you, and you won’t ever get attracted to them. Make your partner realize that you are mature enough to know how to stay loyal in a relationship.
5. Mismanaged Priorities
Having correctly managed priorities is vital for a long-lasting relationship. I am not saying that you should only spend time with your partner, forgetting your life goals and career.
The point is to have a work-life balance.
Quick Solution: Analyze your schedule, check whether you are correctly managing your priorities, and rearrange accordingly.
There can be only two scenarios in such a case:-
- Your love life is taking too much time that you are unable to give time to your goals.
- Your daily routine is so hectic that you are unable to spend time on your love life.
In both cases, you need to rearrange the priorities and provide equal time to both work and your lover.
A relationship can never work if you can’t forgive your partner. Your partners are humans, and they do make mistakes. However, if you get stuck on their mistakes and point them repeatedly, it could become a serious relationship problem.
Quick Solution: Develop a forgiving attitude. Learn to let things go. Nobody is perfect in this whole world. If you or your partner commits some mistake, let it go and move on in life.
Those small mistakes do not matter, but your peace really does.✌
7. Extremely Dominant Attitude
Think about it:- You and your partner wanted to go out for a nice dinner. Your partner suggested place X while you chose place Y. However, your partner took you to place X without even listening to your opinion.
That’s called dominance.
A relationship is a bond between two people. Thus, a relationship cannot work if only one person makes all the decisions.
Quick Solution: Make your partner realize that you and your choices matter. You also want to be equally valued and heard. Show them that your decisions are equally good as their decisions.
8. No Time for Each Other
Do you feel that you or your partner spends too much time with friends and family such that there is no time spent together?
It can lead to a huge communication gap along with a feeling of loneliness over time.
Quick Solution: Realize the value of your lover in your life. Provide them the time they need and pamper them with lots of love.
You might not have realized it until now, but the presence of a life partner is priceless.
9. The Dark Past
You need to get over the dark past if you want to earn the brightest present.
Rewinding the moments of the past fills you and your partner with excess negativity, which might turn the blissful relationship into a toxic one.
Quick Solution: Try to forget your past and move on. You can’t change your past, but the present is yours. Things have changed, and there was a reason why everything happened.
Move on and brighten up your future.
Everybody needs respect. You can’t just curse somebody and expect them to give you positive replies.
The same goes for a relationship. If you can’t respect your partner, don’t expect respect in return.
Quick Solution: Give respect, get respect.
Regard your partner with love. Respect their families and morals the way you respect yours.
11. Being Too Secretive
Being over secretive might trigger a feeling of mistrust in your partner’s head. They might start thinking about why you are hiding things from them and start being suspicious.
Quick Solution: Keeping your social media passwords and account password secrets isn’t too secretive. Keep only those secrets that your partner is not required to know, and your privacy is maintained.
12. Blame Game
Do you really feel that blaming others for your failures will turn you into a success?
If you have the same habit of blaming your partner for whatever goes wrong in your life, it is better to get rid of it as soon as possible.
Quick Solution: You are the only one who is responsible for your failures.
Here’s the bitter truth:- Your partner did not stop you from doing something. It was you who chose what to do and what not to do. Be accountable for yourself.
It’s your life. Get what you want. Don’t blame them just because they love you and won’t argue with you.
13. Lack of Compromises and Adjustments
A relationship requires a lot of compromises and adjustments. Both the lovers need to adjust according to each other’s needs.
Without these, compromises misunderstandings might evolve, which could eventually lead to a breakup.
Quick Solution: Start by developing a habit of making small adjustments that suits you. Eventually, move on to making the wisest decisions and adjustments according to them.
Value your partner and make the required adjustments for their happiness.
How to solve relationship problems without breaking up?
The answer to this question lies in the three magical words “Don’t Give Up.”
If you truly feel that you don’t want to end it here, SAVE your relationship. Give your 100% in it and try to convince your lover.
If it was your fault, realize your mistake and apologize. If you feel that your partner was wrong, have a calm and constructive conversation with them and sort it all out. Just don’t let them go so easily.
If your partner has the same feeling as you have, He/she will be surely convinced, and Voila! You just saved your relationship without breaking up.
Don’t forget to throw me a party btw.😜
Remember: It isn’t easy to find clear-hearted and good people in this world. So, if you have found someone special, never let them go away from your life.
Can stress cause relationship problems?
It is no doubt that stress can cause relationship problems.
It is because you might lose control over yourself. In that situation, you might also start blaming your partner for everything that is going wrong in your life.
Your partner might even know that you didn’t mean what you said. But that does not happen in all cases. Sometimes, you might even exclaim something out of stress that could hurt your partner deeply.
Thus, if you think that if you can’t control your emotions during stress, it is better to take some time until you feel a bit relaxed.
Control your emotions just for that moment. Then get back to your partner when the situation feels under control and vent out all of it. Trust me! It works great.
Your stress will vanish, and everything will feel calm.
Imagine it this way: A relationship is an eternal bond in which both you and your partner are on the two ends of a string. The string is the bond of your relation, and both of you have to hold the string such that neither it breaks nor slacks.
What you can only do is to keep it balanced!
Don’t lose your hope as problems are a part of life. Both of you need to stand with each other, and everything will be fine. There is no option to back out until everything seems to be unbearable and TOTALLY destructive.
Try to work around your problems and stay happy with your partner.
You are highly blessed to have someone in your life who loves you and cares for you.
Do your best, and this too shall pass!
