We speak a lot about making yourself heard in a relationship and enforcing your boundaries. However, there comes a time when you do need to turn a blind eye.
We tend to make everything about us, and sometimes it really isnít
Your partner forgets your anniversary; itís not a big deal if he does it once or twice, and it certainly isnít a sign that he doesnít love you - it happens. If he consistently forgets your name, then you may have cause for concern.
When you allow the other person to be human and grant them permission to be flawed you set yourself free
Trust me, your partner will err, as will you, and it will serve you to know the difference between simple human error and relationship warning signs.
Take me for example, and perhaps your man is like this: if I am going through a lot of mental stuff I tend to neglect my physical environment. Sure, it drives my wife nuts, but she understands and a few gentle reminders are all thatís needed.
It is not unusual for a man under stress to forget birthdays or anniversaries, so go easy on him. In fact if you already know this about your partner, then you can earn his gratitude by lovingly reminding him.
We are all flawed in some way: being insecure about these flaws is a sure way to doom your relationship
So he forgot to call, so he was playing pc games with his buddy at the time: it happens. If you really canít live with your partner's flaws, then it's time to move on; you will be doing both of you a favour. I am sure you want to be loved in spite of your flaws, but so does he, and a partner who loves us for what we bring and helps us where we are lacking is the best!
