5-Don’t expect your partner to read your mind
One potential cause of friction in a relationship is expecting your partner to be able to act a certain way or do certain things without you having to ask. This is unrealistic and dangerous to the health of your relationship. Your partner is not a mind-reader. There’s a lot of things that we say inside our own heads during a relationship. Sometimes it’s something good. Sometimes it’s not so great.If you are thinking it, say it. Missing the opportunity to say the good things can make your partner feel under-appreciated, and each time you miss the opportunity to deal with the bad things, you just add another brick in the wall that is growing between you.
