As with anything in life, the earlier you notice it and nip it in the bud, the easier it is to defuse, handle and solve it.  It’s the same with relationship problems.  The sooner you catch them, the quicker you avert disaster in your relationships.

Relationship Problems 2Here are the first five common sources of relationship problems:
1. Poor Communication:

There are clear signs when communication isn’t going so well. Typically there’s a challenge with your partner that’s causing  ineffective communication. Your relationship will sag when certain topics are avoided. And it’s even more extreme when you stop communicating altogether.

2. Not Paying Attention/Getting Distracted:

Ever heard the saying, “The shoemaker’s children have no shoes”? It’s easy drop out paying attention to the ones you love the most. You won’t even realize you’re doing it, but in the flurry of life and not paying attention, it’s easy to do.

In today’s world, it’s easy to get distracted. In the evening, instead of focusing on each other, you have the TV on or the laptop on your lap as you answer emails, check out Facebook, or play a game. All this keeps you from fully connecting.

3. Being Oblivious:

You know how sometimes you don’t have a clue about what’s going on with your partner? Then suddenly everything blows up, but you’re not sure why. You know something’s up, that they need something, but you have no clue what it is. It’s a mystery!

4. Being Indifferent:

Being indifferent creates major relationship problems. This usually comes from long-term feelings of frustration or from being hurt one too many times.

Indifference is a HUGE red flag in a relationship. Nothing affects you either way because you have disengaged from your relationship, or they have disengaged from you. You’re indifferent to them, their needs and desires.

5. Taking The Other For Granted/Ignoring Each Other:

Taking your partner for granted is all too easy, especially when you’re busy.  You don’t appreciate them and assume that they’re just going to keep on giving. This usually doesn’t work too well for very long!  And in the long term it causes hurt and resentment.

Ignoring your partner is not a great strategy, to say the least!  It doesn’t make the issues go away or solve anything.  It’s definitely a sign of imminent relationship problems.
