Improving Your Relationship By Stopping Bad Habits

Updated on November 28, 2010

Which one of you will without fail convey to their mate they know they have the best ideas? Stop doing that! You two are together because you worked well together, why stop working as a team? If you’re in a relationship and your mate says something irritates them; why would you continue to do it, just because you have the right to? What an juvenile way of looking at things. Do you want to be irritated, well stop doing whatever irritates your mate? Sure we all have the right to do things but is it advantageous to your relationship? If it’s not going to enhance then why do it, stop it. 


After some years we get so used to one another, but your bathroom habits should stay in the bathroom. In other words keep your own bad habits by yourself behind a closed bathroom door. Think of it, you look over at your mate and you’re thinking to yourself how much you love them then at that moment all of a sudden they pass gas and smell up the room, what a turn off. You see your mate pick their nose and fling it or they hock something up, they blow their noise at the food table, they step out their underwear and leave stains for you to see, they get into bed with you and either their feet or arm pits can kill you or should your mate give you a full backside view while bending over in the fridge. Yes, you still love them, but, that romantic feeling you were thinking of just fizzled.  


No matter how long you’ve been together improving your relationship means considering one another. When your mate communicates “turn offs” to you, why not listen and keep those bad habits behind the closed bathroom door. This will help to bring romance back to your relationship.


Stop yelling it annoys your mate; be respectful and considerate of one another. Think back to when you were on your best behavior when you two were dating, what’s wrong with treating one another that way still? Bad manners and bad habits equal resentful feelings. Healthy relationships are not sustained by resentment. Do you have the right to do certain things, I’m sure you do. Is it advantageous to your relationship? That’s precisely the question you should be asking yourself.
