It was all sunshine and rainbows in the beginning — you and your partner got along famously, spent time together whenever possible, and even made your other coupled-up friends jealous of your chemistry. But somewhere along the line, things changed. While all relationships naturally change over time, you may start to blame and resent your partner for the new problems arising between the two of you. Does every conversation dissolve into fighting? Do you fail to ever come to an agreement?
Here are 10 signs you’re actually the one causing the drama in the relationship.
1. You have nothing good to say about your partner
We all complain to our friends about our partners, but if every word out of your mouth is something nasty about the one you supposedly love, you should take a look inward.
Remember, you started dating your partner for a reason. There was something in them, whether it was their charming nature or outlook on life, that made you want to spend time with them. Try to get back to that instead of focusing on the negative. The Huffington Post recommends paying your partner a compliment and thanking them for the smaller things they do every day to make them feel more appreciated.
