Relationship advice we can all benefit from! Dr. Erin Leonard says everyone strives for loving and close relationships, yet, often, it is our closest relationships that become distant and painful. Often, this is because one person in the relationship is emotionally stunted. She shares her thoughts on how we can all live happily ever after. Yes, she says it IS possible!
The 4 signs that your relationship and or partner might be emotionally stunted:
1) Banging Your head Against The Wall:
When there is a disagreement or conflict, your partner can only consider and repeat his or her own perspective. They cannot understand anyone else’s perspective but their own, so getting in a disagreement w them feel like you are banging your head against the wall.
2) The Blame Game
Your partner rarely takes responsibility for his or her mistakes, and instead points the finger back at you.
3) Life Is So Hard
Your partner acts as if you are a hardship in their life–Like you are a burden.
4) Lack of Empathy
Your partner rarely cares how you feel. When you are sick or injured, they are insensitive and sometimes act as if you deserve it. If these 4 phenomenon exist in your relationship, your partner may be emotionally stunted, and in need of some help getting the love and closeness back.
