It's no secret that relationships require effort. Initially, they are filled with dizzying feelings and moments when it's impossible to be apart, but once that period passes, the work begins.

Hack Spirit discusses when it's worth saving a relationship.

Lost romance

Psychologists and relationship experts unanimously argue that this is what sustains love, regardless of the duration of the relationship.

Life is certainly full of stress, but there are plenty of ways to add romance to your life together, especially in the little things, like cute handwritten notes or messages. Or breakfast in bed or a shared bath with foam.

You’re taking each other for granted

This happens when you become too comfortable with your partner. This, of course, is good, but it leads to neglect of your partner's needs.

If you have stopped appreciating each other and caring for each other's comfort, it is worth thinking about how the relationship can develop.

Relationships have become unbalanced

Extremely often, when one of the partners is taken for granted, the relationship becomes unbalanced.

They cease to be mutually beneficial, becoming one-sided. They become more uncertain and lead to one person doing the bulk of the work - emotionally, physically, and mentally. And this undoubtedly causes concern.

You’re no longer working like a team

This is related to the previous sign. However, relationships require teamwork - for each person to make a physical and emotional contribution to the development of the relationship.

This also means that there should be a sense of selflessness, willingness to compromise, and trust in your partner. Psychologists advise us to define common goals and figure out how to achieve them together.

Pettiness has become more common

Nagging about things like leaving lights on, dirty clothes, or forgotten keys can lead to significant conflicts and a breakup.

In addition to internal causes, such as insecurity or a desire for dominance in relationships, nitpicking can be a sign of decreased attention to the other partner's comfort.

Unspoken grievances

Having unresolved issues in a relationship often leads to partners having negative thoughts about each other and the relationship. However, every relationship has its problems, no matter how compatible you are.

It's important to remember that this, like arguments, is normal. Furthermore, discussing discomfort shows caring and strengthens the bond.

You spend less time together

Although healthy relationships involve personal space, interests, and social circles, quality time together is necessary for couples - otherwise, the relationship won't develop.

Engaging in fun and interesting activities together adds novelty to the relationship and maintains passion.
