The Bad Times – Times of hardship are part of life too. During these times we see our partner’s strengths and weaknesses as they see ours. They should be called informative days not bad days as it gives us the opportunity to see where we can improve. When support from your partner during a crisis is lacking we start to think is our relationship can be improved or may part ways. Remember knowledge is power and without these bad days to guide us we are then unable to trust and enjoy the good days. If you reflect on the “bad periods” of your relationship you recognise the shortfalls and seek to rectify in your next relationship and hope to achieve from it.
