When the complicated stuff turns to bad stuff
Every now and then, the little things that bother you deep inside get on the offensive and you find yourself bursting out at your startled partner. You might not like the way your partner laughs while chatting over the phone with a member of the opposite sex, or you may hate a few of your partner’s habits. But when you have a serious argument, usually over something that can be sorted out without harsh words, things can get quite nasty. When you’re just dating, you can walk away from an argument, and go back to your place. And you eventually make up after spending some quiet time by yourself.
When you’re living together, and mistakes keep getting repeated, it’s quite hard not to get angry or lose your mind once in a while. When there’s one argument, and nothing is done about it, there’s bound to be several others that would just leave the both of you mad at each other. Very soon, there would be annoying remarks, and old issues would be raked into the picture. This is very bad for a live-in relationship as both of you know that the first thought that would come into your mind would be “Have I made a mistake by moving in with this person?!”
Occasional fights gets this thought into you every now and then, until your mind starts to believe that you just might have taken a wrong decision.
The Happy Stuff
People make mistakes or they have habits that are hard to break, even if they’re in love. It does get annoying though, when your partner repeats the same mistakes over and over again. And likewise, your partner might find a few things about you annoying. If you ever find something annoying about your partner, tell them about it. Don’t hold on to that thought until you’re on the verge of bursting out.
Calm words have a better effect than harsh ones. Your partner would definitely make it a point to change that negative aspect if you lovingly try to correct them. It’s a beautiful thought to move in together, spend time and understand each other before you pledge vows for eternity. There definitely will be many good moments and many angry times too. Moving in together helps you understand what to expect from your partner, and what your partner can expect from you. And when you try everything you can, to keep each other happy when you’re living together, you know that you would only take this happiness further into several years of your life together.
