Sometimes it is difficult to know when you are doing things wrong in your relationship, especially when you are blinded by your ‘love glasses’, or however you want to describe the feeling of not picking up cues from your partner because you are so in love with them.
Ever heard the phrase, less is more? Well, in a partnership this can’t be farther from the truth. In life, in general, when we overdo things, it never ends well (mostly). This is why it is always good to be in a relationship with another person whom you love, but also be an independent person living your own life and being your person.
Nothing feels worse than bad behavior and desperation when you break up with someone. Practicing detachment is one of the key things in any companionship, it makes other people respect you and get the message that you are your person. This online resource can help you out when it comes to practicing this habit.
Most often than not, the majority of those who get into a relationship go all out and jump into the deep end, only to be surprised that years later it ends. Some people may like a clingy person, but the majority of them don’t and the unfortunate thing is, not everyone is good at communicating these things, thus, you don’t pick up on this until it’s too late.
This article will help you find a solution to this. We discuss a few things that you can do in general that will avoid your partner from being unhappy or disappointed in you, so you can keep your companionship going for a long time.
Let’s dive in.
Things You Should Avoid Doing In a Relationship
If you have already broken up or on the verge of it, there are a few things that have been tried and tested that can help to either bring your ex back or avoid becoming an ex altogether.
Stop Manically Posting Your feelings All Over Social Media
This is something people do so often and never realize. Posting your sad faces and relationship quotes all over your Instagram or Facebook page only makes things worse. It is one of the first mistakes you should be aware of and completely avoid. No one likes negative news feeds, and especially not from friends and family.
If you carry on soon you will find all your followers unfollowing you or avoiding any communication with you. Sometimes if your colleagues and boss are on the same page, they may alienate you too, which will make things uncomfortable on the work front as well.
To no surprise, nothing good ever comes out of moaning and whining once you’ve broken up. That’s just a fact of life and no one will like you for it. As mentioned on this website getexbackforgood.com, your ex will most probably still have visibility on your pages, so they will see this too, and get put off. It will make them want to be further away from you rather than closer.
Feeling Sorry for Yourself Is Not The Way To Go
Again, nothing good comes out of feeling sorry for yourself. There is never anything good in this type of emotion, and the only person you will be hurting is yourself. Instead, think about all your good qualities. Chances are, your ex already is.
Try and focus on the positive and get back up on the horse again. Life will throw you some curveballs, but if you mope around every time something doesn’t work out all you will be doing is wasting away, and for what? Ask yourself if it’s worth thinking about the ‘good old days? or is it better to remain positive and get busy getting your life back together and spending more time with yourself? Self-reflection is a very healthy thing to do. Try it.
Stop Being So Obsessive
Stop obsessively messaging and contacting them every chance you get. According to the popular Time magazine online article, the debate about whether men speak more than women or vice versa, is an ongoing one, however, when you see things from a birds-eye perspective around your life, between friends and family members, or even in your relationship, does it seem like you talk too much?
This could directly affect things once you are no longer in association with your ex. People tend to obsessively message others or speak to them every chance they get and not many partners enjoy this. So, as mentioned in the point above, practice detachment. No matter how you are feeling, making contact immediately after is never a good idea, you need to let things breathe and give it some space.
This leads us to the next point of feeling sorry for ourselves.
If You Want To Reverse The Above
If you are looking to reverse all of the above and want to get your ex back, the below 3 tips may help you with that:
- Do something that you enjoy and that you’ve put away for a while because your ex didn’t like it.
- Go out and meet new people and try and have responsible fun. Don’t go out with the intent to find a new person you get into a relationship with. No! That’s the wrong move. Instead, look for friends in the beginning and then work your way up to seeing someone else.
- Always use social media for good. Documenting your life is a good thing, but only the positive side of things. Take lots of pictures when you are out and about enjoying yourself. Just don’t fake it.
We hope the above information helps you in your endeavors!
