There are certain pre-defined notions regarding relationships we have been hearing for ages now. It is generally said that having a good relationship means that you and your partner are always on the same page, don’t have any disagreements, have an immense amount of trust in each other, and share a different level of intimacy both physically and emotionally. While most of the aforementioned things are true to some extent, it is time that we should normalize a few things in a relationship so that none of the partners feels guilty while looking out for themselves.
If you are in a relationship with someone, it doesn’t mean that you should be joined at the hip with each other all the time. Both the partners should give each other space as everyone needs some time for themselves to calm their mind, sort out their own mess or just spend time doing activities that they like. One should not make a huge fuss about their partners needing space and should respect their privacy and emotions.
One thing that needs to be normalized in a relationship on an immediate basis has to be having disagreements. Being in a relationship doesn’t mean that you and your partner will always have the same thought process. As human beings, a couple is bound to have arguments and disagreements as everyone has their own brain to think as it isn’t compulsory that if you feel something is right and then your partner should always agree to it.
Trust forms the basis of any relationship. Thus it is important to trust your partner and not be on alert mode every time they talk to someone from the opposite gender. However, this doesn’t mean that one can’t have doubts regarding their significant others. It takes time and effort to build trust and it is okay to sometimes question your partner if you are growing suspicious. At some point in time, everyone has doubts regarding their relationship but everything is fine till you are willing to talk and resolve the matter.
