At times in relationships, whether intentionally or not, we can do things to sabotage it. Believe me, I have been guilty of this. No one sets out to fail relationships. At other times, unforeseen occurrences beyond our control can drastically change everything. Here are four ways that people can destroy their own relationships.

1) You always have to win- You think the relationship is a game that you are trying to win. People in competitive relationships always are looking for the upper hand or the advantage that they can have over their partner's hand. They use this edge against one another. This is not a good idea. Eventually some one will get tired of the game and quit.

2) You do not communicate- This point is simple. You have to communicate in order for the relationship to work. How will your partner what is going on or how you feel if you you do not tell them.

3) You do not trust-You do not trust your partner enough to know that they won't hurt you. You always think that they are doing something wrong. This also means not trusting them enough to know that they won't leave you or stop loving you if you make a mistake. Without trust, the relationship will not prevail.

4) You do not listen- You need to actively listen to one another. We should give our partner our undivided attention and really listen to what they have to say. You would want the same from them.

These are just a few ways that you may be sabotaging your relationship. It may or may not be the case, but this may be a guide to help you see somethings.
