Oftentimes, you may make your relationship more complicated than it needs to be. What do I mean by this statement?
It's so easy to overthink things especially in a relationship. And when you start overthinking, I'd advise you do the following: slow down, take a deep breath, and pause. When you stay in your head too much, you lose focus on what your partner's needs are and most importantly on what you need from one another.
And this is where the breakdown of a good relationship occurs. You have to stay tuned in to one another, ask the difficult questions, listen and implement action to move forward. It's the only way to have a long-lasting relationship!
