Being honest when you aren’t satisfied with someone you love might be a hard pill for both of you to swallow, but it’s good and necessary medicine. It might seem romance-less to schedule sit-downs with your lover to point out all the varied ways that you “aren’t impressed” with each other, but that’s the work
Successful relationships are all partnerships, people working together on a project. They require you to identify the things you want and need, to listen to what the other person wants and needs, to see where there’s overlap, be honest about when there’s not, and then adjust accordingly
They require conversations that demand you pull up two chairs to the table, one for yourself, and one for your ego. Saying the difficult things might not always be pleasant, but it will always be worth it
