Why Your Relationship is Failing

Let me ask you something…

How healthy is your relationship?

Is it growing a little stronger every day, or are you finding it more and more difficult to rekindle the intoxicating connection that used to be?

The reason I ask is because I’m noticing a lot of people making the same mistakes over and over again with their partners.

And even though these same people say they want a healthy relationship — and they get upset, agitated, and annoyed when they don’t have one — their actions completely contradict that sentiment, and they continue doing things that make it impossible to foster something rewarding and beautiful.

One of the biggest mistakes?

Keeping secrets, lying, and withholding information.

Seems like an obvious mistake, right? I mean, it’s common sense not to lie, keep secrets, or withhold information from your partner, isn’t it? Unfortunately, though, common sense isn’t always common practice…

… and many a good relationship has fallen apart because of it.

So, how can you tell if what you’re doing is causing damage to your relationship? Or better yet, if what you’re doing is actually wrong?

Well, that’s a great question, my friend — and I think the easiest way to demonstrate the answer is with an example.

Unfortunately, you’ll have to wait until tomorrow to get it.

In the meantime, though, do me a favor and reflect on this question: “Am I withholding information from my partner that would hurt them to know?”

Be honest with yourself and bring your answer with you tomorrow. You’ll get some clarity on what you need to do when all is said and done.

Ta ta for now.

Halt right there!
