Letting go. Why is that so difficult for people? Why does one hold onto
Sometimes I find people in relationships continue to give mixed or confusing messages to the other. Reasons for delivering these messages may vary tremendously. However, the result is often one where one person makes assumptions about the relationship which are untrue.
If a partner promises things to the significant other, yet never intends to make the appropriate changes or interventions, the significant other coasts along with mistaken beliefs.
This can create anger, resentments, sadness, frustration and other strong emotions for many reasons.
Being gut level honest with your partner is honorable. Keeping a partner on hold or using a person with no intentions to commit or divulge their true intentions can be very harmful to the couple and the scorned party.
I encourage people to "come clean" with their own truth and not drag partners along under false pretenses.
Be forthcoming with your significant other it is the honest, healthy way to communicate in relationships.
