If you’re in an intimate relationship with someone, you quickly develop behavioral patterns that help you and your partner to maintain the relationship.
Some of these patterns are pleasant for yourself and supportive for the quality of your relationship. But often patterns arise that might help to maintain the relationship. But that do not help you to be happy yourself.
For example, you might notice that you often don’t say things to your partner. Or that you regularly do things that you don’t really enjoy or wholeheartedly support. Or that you say things to the other person, that cause him or her to feel angry or sad. Or maybe your partner often says things that you find hurtful.
It is not easy to maintain a high quality of connection
During the initial stages of a relationship it’s easy. Because you are both in love, it is easy to accept the behavior of the other person you are not happy with. But after a while, when the first infatuation begins to diminish, you come to the point that it is no longer pleasant to be confronted with it. At those times it is often difficult to be honest about what bothers you and still maintain a warm bond with each other.
People are different. What is normal and acceptable behavior for one person can evoke uncomfortable feelings within another. It is not always easy to explain that without the other person being offended or feeling insecure.
And it is also not always possible to fully understand what is alive in your partner on a deeper level.
Most people have not learned how to truly listen to their partner (or themselves). We usually observe others through the filter of our own feelings and judgments.
You might recognize that your partner is saying something to you that triggers you. And that from that moment on you no longer hear anything he or she is saying. You feel overwhelmed, angry, or maybe sad. And that’s where all your attention goes.
This happens a lot between couples. And that contributes to the experience of alienation and feeling lonely in a relationship.
This also contributes to misunderstanding, tension and irritation
If you do not fully understand each other; and if you are touched in a negative way by what the other person says, misunderstanding, tensions and irritations arise. If that lasts for a bit, it usually results in quarrels and sometimes the end of a relationship.
