Love relationship problems are common in any relationship, and although some have broken up because of these problems, others have been able to resolve them and moved on happily with their coupled lives. To help overcome these problems, both you and your loved one need to have an open mind when dealing with your relationship problems.
A number of problems that have occurred in a relationship tend to start out small. They may have been overlooked at first or were insignificant when it first started, but over time, all of these small problems would have accumulated and resulted in a build up of pent up frustrations. When you two begin arguing, neither of you would willing admit to being the one at fault. This is the important thing about being open-minded, so that you could just take the blame first and allow both of your feelings to cool down. There is a greater meaning to taking the blame first instead of pushing it away.
In some cases, only one of the two people involved is willing to work on the relationship and improve it while the other would rather let it fall apart. If your partner is clear on this matter and would not want to continue the relationship, then it would be best to conclude it before anyone gets hurt any further. It is also one of the ways of being open-minded because staying in a relationship for the sake of it will only hurt you continuously. Breaking up could actually be the best solution for your situation.
If both you and your loved one are willing to spend the time and effort on amending mistakes and improving your relationship with each other, then things will become much easier. You two have already opened your minds and considered the brighter side of your relationship. Plus, you two would allow yourselves to consider more options and listen to others' suggestions to save your relationship.
Next, learn to understand each other better by communicating more effectively. It would require you two to speak properly and make your intentions understood. At the same time, if any of you have any criticisms, it is best to listen to it without getting defensive and start avoiding any blame. You two need to understand that hearing each other's discomforts is one of the ways to pinpoint a possible source of problem and prevent it from worsening. If it can prevent a break up of your relationship, then taking the blame would be worth it.
Trying to listen to each other and not begin your accusations can be one of the most difficult things to do, unfortunately. It truly requires you to think calmly and have a level of tolerance to your partner's whines and complaints. It might be made worse if you also have complaints but your partner is not as wiling to listen as you are, resulting in a worse case scenario. When wanting to resolve the problems and save your relationship, remember that to keep an open-mind towards anything that can happen and anything that is said. It may be painful at first, but when it comes from your lover, it is something worthwhile to endure.
