What is the best advice to help me have a stable and long- lasting relationship with my new partner?
The reason why my loved ones never want to leave the home I make for them, is because I support their passions. (Only when I see them really neglecting me, do I speak up.) There’s a fine line where speaking up, turns into taking away someone’s freedom. By withdrawing from speaking to your partner, or not speaking as much, he or she will feel ‘punished’ by you. No matter what little thing someone does that doesn’t please you, NEVER punish them by withholding love –it’s a form of emotional blackmail. It could risk making your partner unhappy in your relationship.
It’s never a good idea to expect one’s partner to get all their happiness from you. It creates a dependency that is a dysfunctional way to have a relationship. Dysfunctional relationships don’t last.
