Let’s quickly go through the five deadliest relationship crimes, the ones that are so toxic that if exhibited, can kill your relationship forever.
Pride: pride has killed many relationships the way cheating or way bigger relationship crimes cannot. Everyone’s got ego, some with bigger egos than the others but whatever the size of your ego is, and it shouldn’t be bigger than your relationship. Your partner is more important than the pride you carry about.
Cheating: aka lusting after everyone that’s not your partner. Be content with what you have and stick your behind with your partner. It is one of the unhealthiest things that can ruin a relationship and if you really know deep inside this lust isn’t going to help your relationship, then just get over it before someone gets hurt.
Wrath: get angry but don’t get too angry that your relationship suffers for it. Don’t sleep on your anger, don’t let it become bitterness and become unhealthy. Talk about whatever has happened, be open. Its healthy, it lives room for growth and it helps the relationship.
Greed: I’m not talking food. I’m talking about the excessiveness of everything (could be a pastime, TV show, social media etc.) that you do that affects your relationship. If its getting too much that even you realise its not good, then stop it.
Jealousy: Jealousy is healthy when its at a particular level, in fact studies have revealed that when you’re in love with someone, jealousy happens when you see the person with someone else. You want the person to be yours alone and its okay to occasionally get jealous of that too friendly girl/guy or the time your boo dedicates to work. However jealousy that has you yelling, has you hiring a private investigator (ok maybe not that bad) and has you snooping around your boo’s phone is very unhealthy and ridiculous. Get rid of the insecurity.
