An unhappy relationship is any partnership whereby one or both people want out or need things to change if they are to continue forward together.
Some relationships can be saved and others, not so much. Just because you and your spouse or boyfriend are presently unhappy, it doesn't mean that it's time to throw in the towel.
If you're wondering whether or not your commitment is worth saving ... first, ask yourself:
Is your relationship operating on a foundation of TRUST?
Trust between two people is paramount. You might be bored with one another but if you and your partner are faithful and can communicate openly and honestly, your relationship is worth the effort it will take to save it.
Do you both LOVE one another?
Believe it or not, people allow love to "get away" from them. They begin to think that maybe the grass is greener on the other side of the fence, or that they made the wrong choice in a partner because everyone else seems to be having more fun.
Do you continue to practice thoughtful COMMUNICATION with one another?
Work, school, the kids, errands, church, afterschool games, etc ... can distract couples from the very thing that's needed to maintain a healthy relationship.
If you are not setting time aside to just be together and communication without distractions ... chances are, the distance between the two of you is increasing.PLAY together
Having fun in life is as essential to your emotional health as eating nutritional foods. If you and your mate are not having fun together ... when are you having fun?
An unhappy relationship doesn't have to be a bad relationship.
If you're just unhappy because you have neglected putting in the attention and time needed for a successful relationship, don't be sour ... instead, make a commitment to begin doing those things that will put your relationship back front and center.
You now know that TRUST, LOVE, COMMUNICATION, and FUN are necessary for the proper growth and longevity of a successful relationship.
Start today by making a commitment to do more for yourself and for those you love.
