Many people waste years in unhappy relationships… they make no effort to improve their day to day existence but neither do they make that jump… only after the other person moves on, dies, or dumps them do they realise how much time they have wasted.
What if you could control everything that happened to you? What if you could mold your partner into exactly the type of person you wanted to live with? Would you stay or go? What if there is a much easier option? What if you could change yourself? Not prepared to? Leave then.
The behaviour we expect of others in a relationship is often unrealistic. For example, my ex-husband (a Man Utd fan) rang me at midnight on Wednesday to tell me that Man Utd had won. If he had done that whilst we were married I would have gone nuts! I would have called him a selfish pig and he would definitely have been sleeping in the spare room. Now I simply find his behaviour amusing.
Are you nice to your spouse? Do you greet him/her with affection or do you barely glance when he/she arrives home? Are you more polite to strangers? What can you do this lovely Bank Holiday to make your relationship work? Remember it’s never too late…
