Is Stress Taking Over Your Relationship?
Have you ever felt like conflicts with your partner are helping spice up your relationship? It’s not uncommon. Just a few days ago, I had a chat with a relative. She was talking about clashes she had with her boyfriend.
She went on to share how frequent those fights were for them. “That is love,” she says. “I have another guy pursuing me, and he treats me like a queen! But still, I just love my boyfriend who drives me nuts and sometimes makes me go through a lot of pain.”
Can you relate to such a feeling? In the absence of validation (feeling loved and having someone support your identity), it is easy to accept and take whatever else one can get, even if it is negative attention.
