How Irresponsibility Can Destroy A Relationship
A person’s irresponsibility towards a relationship shows selfishness. It takes two people to be involved in a relationship. Therefore, it’s only right that these two people contribute fairly and responsibly towards building a good relationship. Couples who fail to understand that responsibility plays an important part in maintaining a happy relationship will soon let their irresponsibility destroy their own relationship.
How to Spot Emotional Unavailability
If you’ve ever been in a relationship with someone emotionally unavailable, you know the pain of not being able to get close to the one you love. They’re evasive, make excuses, or just inept when it comes to talking about feelings or the relationship. Some use anger, criticism, or activities to create distance. You end up feeling alone, depressed, unimportant, or rejected. Usually women complain about emotionally unavailable men. Yet many women aren’t aware they’re emotionally unavailable, too. When you get hooked on someone else who is (think Carrie Bradshaw and Mr. Big) your problem is disguised as his.
Relationship Problems and Learning To Let Go
So many times I hear about individuals who were hurt by a lover yet they don’t want to let go of the relationship. They hold onto the hope that things will be good in the future – even if they haven’t been good in the past – if they can only hold on.
How Perceptions Shape Relationships
According to the New World Encyclopedia, perception is the organization, identification, and interpretation of sensory information in order to fabricate a mental representation through the process of transduction, which sensors in the body transform signals from the environment into encoded neural signals. The word “perception” is actually used quite frequently, but after reading the above definition, do you really have a firm understanding of what it means?
What Is Emotional Abandonment?
Many people don’t realize that they’re feeling emotionally abandoned or that they did as a child. They may be unhappy, but can’t put their finger on what it is. People tend to think of abandonment as something physical, like neglect. They also may not realize that loss of physical closeness due to death, divorce, and illness is often felt as an emotional abandonment. However, emotional abandonment has nothing to do with proximity. It can happen when the other person is lying right beside you – when you can’t connect and your emotional needs aren’t being met in the relationship.
