Love is a journey not a destination. The search for perfection in a relationship only takes one further away from contentment. Relationship takes work. A good relationship requires both partners to play their roles effectively in the relationship. They should possess the willingness to persevere in love against all odds. Most times, couple fall out of love due to inconsistency. One of them stops doing that which they normally do at the start of the relationship. This leads to the other falling out of love. At this point they start doing scandalous things in the relationship.
Take a look at four (4) scandalous things people do in a relationship;
1. Keeping Secrets.
Secrets aren’t good for a healthy relationship. If you truly love someone, you won’t want to hide anything from the person. Secrets are like viruses. They slowly eat the peace of the relationship. Your partner should be you confidant. Someone you trust enough to confide in. They are the ones who will honor and respect you during trying times. Trusting your partner with your secrets builds the confidence they have in you. It makes them love and respect you more.
2. Telling lies.
A relationship with lots of secrets has many lies. Lie is the opposite of everything true and sincere. There is no integrity in lying. Its aim is to sabotage the relationship. When you are not completely truthful to your partner, it sets an invisible bridge between the both of you. It gives room for dishonestly and lack of trust. It makes your partner find it difficult to trust you with delicate matters. No matter how many lies have been told in a relationship, the truth will always come out.
You owe your partner. Infidelity is an act that shouldn’t be tolerated. You need to be completely honest with your partner at all times. You need to understand that your partner isn’t someone here for a short time ride. They are here to ride with you through the peaks and troughs of the relationship; the good times and the bad times. When you clearly understand this, you will understand that you have a big role to play to ensure a healthy and lasting relationship together. Be faithful to your partner.
No one is perfect. We all make mistakes. The problem with most relationships is their unwillingness to compromise when one makes a mistake or is found guilty of an act. Nothing holds a couple back more than holding on to past resentment and grudges. It is difficult for a couple to move on when they keep relieving those hurtful moments. Most times, the best solution to go through those trying times is the willingness to compromise. It prevents further scandalous circumstances from occurring. Be willing to compromise with your partner. Forgive!!
