STOP STOP STOP involving everyone in your relationship. Didn’t your mom teach you, “What goes on in this house, stays in this house?” If you’re having issues, talk to the person you’re having them with. No one is a better suitor than your mate. Outsiders are not always optimistic, and immediately begin to judge without ever having the full story. Why do we take an outsider’s opinion over logic, and what we already know to be true? No matter the difficulties, we still know the real “Him.”
As women, we always accuse men of not communicating, and that may sometimes be true, and you may be a great communicator, but if you’re doing it with everyone but him, what good is it? Once you begin to paint your mate as this deplorable individual, you can’t be upset with others for the way they view and treat him. Your friends and family will typically take your side and he won’t have a chance in Hell with them. Now you’ve placed yourself and your relationship in a constant defensive mode. It’s nobody’s business what goes on in your relationship. You have to be mature enough to hash it out, even when it’s not pleasant.
Wo”MAN” up and handle your business! The way you handle your relationship woes is only a compass for the direction in which your relationship is headed. When nosy people are poking around in your relationship, you have to quite frankly, SHUT THEM DOWN! Misery actually does love company, and it’s up to you in which direction you decide to steer your relationship. If the relationship is worth saving, have some staying power, figure it out TOGETHER and keep it moving…
