The millennials are probably the generation that is the most confused about what is normal, and what is not in a relationship. Due to the various changes in nowadays society, many of us don’t know how a relationship should be like. Is there a certain pattern we need to follow when we interact with the person we love? Definitely not!
Relationships are not as complicated as they seem
But when do we know when things go too far and we need to take a step back? This is a very good question. Relationships vary from couple to couple. What is perfectly fine in one’s perspective, might be too much for someone else. In this case, we need to set some boundaries for ourselves between what we think is normal and not. For example, any kind of abuse in a relationship is not acceptable and it should definitely be a warning sign that taking a step back is absolutely necessary.
Actions speak louder than words
The way our partner makes us fell through both his actions and words it’s a huge indicator of what is right or what is wrong. No one should ever feel disrespected or not loved in a relationship. When you stop feeling appreciated, having a conversation with your partner might improve things, but if it doesn’t, then you need to reconsider your choices in order to make yourself feel happy again.
So what is left to do when you feel like a step back in your relationship would be a good choice?
Even if you are scared of venturing into the unknown, you need to do it for the sake of your happiness. On a personal note, I’d like to point out that if you are uncertain about taking a step back the best thing to do is having a conversation with someone specialized that can help you put your thoughts together.
