Why do relationships have to be so difficult? That is the chant of everyone going through buy cialis a breakup. Why take your breakups so personally? When you are going through a breakup, do you dig recall conversations that you can use to sooth your pain, to use as an excuse to make the other party into a despicable person? Do you look for anything to make yourself look good and the other person look bad? It takes resilience and honor to remain a balanced loving individual that understands that a breakup is not personal. If you have difficulty in any area of a breakup, you’ll dredge up past hurts, thoughts and feelings to help justify why things are not going the way you want.
Breakup and hurt feelings are really not meant to be personal; because no matter how long it takes, our feelings are a reaction to an interaction that is not working out. Women want to know why men become silent, and cannot communicate. Men cannot deal with the constant rehashing of old conversations commonly known or referred to as nagging. There are a lot of things that you cannot seem to understand when you are experiencing breakdowns in your relationships. In most relationships, there is a breakdown in communication long before there is a breakup. Sometimes there is a warning sign. Sometimes there is not. The warning signs differs with your personal perspective.
How can a breakdown be good? A breakdown is an opportunity to really look at what is in your relationship that is not working so that you can take the necessary actions to remedy or fix the problem in a manner that works for both parties. However, you know that a breakup is inevitable when you haven’t taken any action in the breakdown phase. Here is a story of a friend who is going through a breakdown/breakup:
My friend is in the midst of a challenge/breakup with her boyfriend. She started our conversation by describing that she was not having a good day. As she said this, she put on her sunglasses apologized for her feelings and began to cry behind her glasses. ( Humans never want to look bad not matter what). I told her to cry as I think it best to be straight with our emotions. She had just broken up with my boyfriend. They argued and she threw him out of her apartment (they were not living together). Living together was the reason for the argument. She could not understand why he was not moving in with her. She was frustrated sad, and disappointed. The haven’t spoken for 5 weeks but that morning on the phone they spoke. “He loves me but relationships should not have to be this hard.”
“I love him, why did he not want to move in with me?” What we want in life will only happen if we take the necessary actions to have them materialize. What actions did you take to have him move in with you? Did you have a deadline? No. I was waiting on him. He said he did not have the money to move into our space. I said it was okay and I will pay the bulk of the rent. “He said no way.” Some men no matter how their situations are were not built to live off a woman. Some men just don’t care. No matter how liberal a woman may be. Men will still be men. They still insist on pulling their weight. “I thought it was his machismo shit” she said. Well, it may be but that was really what it was for him. He did not have the money.
She would not hear it. She confessed to hearing was what she wanted. Sometimes you are so in love with love and what you want, that you cannot hear what your partner has to say. By no means is there anything wrong with what you want, but you need to take action. What steps was she taking? Or were she just continually talking about it so that it turned into nagging. She realized she did not take any steps or create a deadline. She really just waited, talked/nagged, cried and said I love you, why it was not going the way I wanted it to go?
When you are ready and willing to get straightforward and honest with yourself, you can cast off all the things that numb your mind and have you mentally and physically stuck in your life. She immediately saw where she was not thinking and only had thoughts that were a part of the recycling of past conversations.
