10 Relationship Killers
Being Cold and Callous
Being cold and callous in a relationship can have damaging effects. It can create confusion and insecurity in the other person, causing them to question their worth and making it difficult for them to be vulnerable and open up. When someone is met with coldness in a moment of vulnerability, it can train them to keep their feelings and thoughts to themselves, leading to a breakdown in communication and a decrease in intimacy. This can lead to feelings of unhappiness, dissatisfaction, and potentially even the end of the relationship.
When we are in a relationship, it’s easy to fall into the trap of making assumptions about our partner’s thoughts and feelings. However, making assumptions can lead to unfulfilled expectations and misunderstandings. Instead of assuming, it’s important to open up the lines of communication and express our needs and wants clearly. When we do this, we set realistic expectations and avoid misinterpretations. On the other hand, if we rely on assumptions and don’t ask questions, misunderstandings can arise and cause disappointment in the relationship.
Lack of Respect
When we show respect towards our partner, we create a positive and supportive environment for them to thrive in. By continuously building up our partner, acknowledging their strengths and achievements, and speaking positively about them to others, we show our respect for them. Respect also involves giving our partner the space they need and treating them with dignity. This allows them to feel valued and appreciated, leading to greater intimacy and connection in the relationship.
Trust is a vital component in any relationship, be it romantic or platonic. Breaking trust can lead to a loss of respect and a breakdown of communication, causing intimacy and connection to fade. When trust is broken, it can also lead to a loss of safety in the relationship. Without trust, we may feel vulnerable and unable to be fully ourselves with our partner. This can cause the relationship to become strained and lead to the eventual breakdown of the relationship.

Deep down, we’re all manifesters.
And manifesting makes life exciting. The idea that we can take a thought in our mind and focus on it enough to translate it into something in our reality is powerful.
But manifesting isn’t always straight forward. Nor is it easy.
In order to bring the big things into our lives, we have to become vulnerable enough to deal with the parts of ourselves we hide. We have to tear down the walls we’ve built around our hearts.
We have to let go of what we’ve known and what’s happened to us. We have to change our story.
In order for us to make radical change, we have to call in something bigger than where we currently are.
