Who would have ever thought that there could be New Year’s Resolutions that can be bad for your relationship? Generally, resolutions are written so we have positive goals we can reach for as the new year passes. There are even resolutions that are specific to couples. So, what are the types of resolutions that may potentially end our current relationships? This AsianDate post finds out.
Why Some New Year’s Resolutions Can Cause Friction In A Relationship
First of all, making resolutions is a good step towards knowing where you are in life now and aiming for a better one in the near future. But sometimes, it is the execution of these resolutions that can cause friction with your significant. The following are example scenarios that best illustrate this:
Resolution #1: Losing Weight / Exercising
You tell your partner that you would like to lose some weight this year. Both of you agree and then figure out a program that both of you can do. You follow the program, and then you lose weight. Your partner, however, is losing less weight than you. This is one possible scenario where your partner can feel resentment towards you.
Resolution #2: Try New Things
Trying new things doesn’t sound bad. But, when you explore doing new things on your own, your partner might feel neglected, and maybe insecure, especially when he or she sees that you’re having a blast enjoying all sorts of new hobbies and activities without him or her.
Resolution #3: Eat Healthier
Eating healthy is a proactive step to a higher state of well-being. Let’s say that you do make this change this year. Your partner is happy with it at first but then realized that you’re “no fun” anymore because you cannot eat pizzas or drink beers with him or her.
The resolutions on this AsianDate post are the most common ones that people make. We should all look at these resolutions as changes that can either have a good or bad effect on our relationship, especially when communication is not practiced.
If any of these example scenarios happen, it’s possible that you and your partner may need to work on strengthening your connection with each other first.
Practicing your resolutions will bring about a change in your relationship. It is up to you and your significant other to adapt to the changes to make your relationship better.
