  • 5 Mistakes That End Up Ruining a Perfectly Successful Relationship

    People are not always the best judges of how good or how bad their relationship with a certain individual might be. After all, we’ve all heard the story of that one poor soul- the guy/girl who gave their all to a partner or a friend or a family member and never seemed to get anything in return. We’ve heard all about how perfect their relationship was going all along, how they never saw anything coming, and how they were utterly shocked when things ended up badly. We’ve heard their stories and we’ve felt bad for them. But one thing we tend to forget while listening to these distressing stories is the fact that there are always two sides to them.

And this error in judgment is exactly what leads to the destruction of a happy and healthy relationship. Make sure you stop yourself from making these 5 mistakes in your relationships:

    1. Failing to create a sense of loyalty and trust

    A lot of our relationships never truly go beyond the surface. We meet people. We share a few laughs with them.
