Misunderstanding is a normal occurence between partners due to differences in personality, temperament, upbringing, exposure and many other factors.
Misunderstanding come and go, and it should never affect your loyalty to your partner.
Having a misunderstanding with your partner is not a genuine excuse to start giving undue attention to other men or women.
If you value your relationship, whenever there is a misunderstanding your thinking should be focus on resolving the issue and at the same time availing it to understand your partner better.
Let your loyalty to your partner be rigid not flexible.
Be loyal to your partner till the relationship is over.
Loyalty brings untold respect and admiration. It is immaturity to flirt with the opposite sex in the presence of your partner.
Stop trying to make your partner feel jealous by flirting with the opposite sex especially when there is a misunderstanding between the two of you.
When you do that you are actually taking undue advantage of your partner’s emotion just because you know he/she loves you dearly.
If care is not taken that might destroy the relationship.
Whenever there is an issue in your relationship you must learn to face it heads on.
This is the only way to find a lasting solution to any problem that may arise in your relationship.
Doing otherwise is usually counter-productive.
Ignoring a problem don’t make it go away, it only make it get worse/bigger.
It is also immaturity to keep malice with your partner no matter the situation.
Don’t keep whatever is hurting you in your relationship to yourself. Speak out.
Don’t be bullied or threaten or blackmail to silence/submission in your relationship.
If you and your partner can’t learn to manage your issues and misunderstanding peacefully and live with each other happily in spite of them, then it is pointless to continue to remain in such a relationship.
When there is an issue in your relationship, find a way to resolve it amicably and continue loving each other.
If the problem is beyond remedy, it is better to go your separate way than to continue to remain together but embitter towards each other. This is because bitterness can make people do unreasonable things to the person they claimed to love.
Naturally love forgives and forgets wrongdoing.
However, if the offence is too much for your heart to forgive and mind to forget it is better to walk out of the relationship.
It is unlawful and immaturity to think of hurting or harming your partner irrespective of what they did wrong.
I have heard too many stories of man/woman murdering their partner.
The question i keep asking myself is “for what reason?”.
Why would you want to put yourself in a situation where you might end up spending the rest of your life in jail over something that is totally preventable.
Relationship is not a do or die affair.
If it is not making you happier and adding value to your life then it is not worth losing your sleep and peace of mind over.
If it is not working, it is okay to let it go.
Though it is advisable to give it your best shots before calling it quit.
It is important to know when to keep trying and when to walk away in a relationship.
Adopt the right mindset towards misunderstanding in a relationship.
Don’t ignore any issue bothering your mind.
If you don’t tackle it, it wouldn’t go away by itself. It will continue to hunt and hurt you until you face it and say enough is enough.
Learn to forgive your partner wholeheartedly.
Don’t keep record of your partner’s wrongdoing.
Don’t keep malice with your partner.
Don’t go to bed with anger and bitterness in your heart against your partner.
When you feel offended let your partner know by talking about it, don’t assume he/she should know.
Don’t give up on your relationship over little quarrel or misunderstanding.
Finally, if it is not working, you are free to walk out of it. Remember, it is a free world.
Never get violent against your partner.
You can never predict what a single violent act can result to in an agitated situation.
A single violent act can put you behind bars for the rest of your life.
It is always better to walk away.
Lets say NO to domestic violence in marriages.
Say NO to unhealthy or toxic relationship as a single.
