We all have a detox plan for everything—from our health to our smart phones. Have you ever wondered if you can detox your love life if you are facing a lot of negativity in the relationship? In fact, it is quite possible to do so. Dr. Wendy Walsh, in her book The 30-day Love Detox , have offered many solutions to purge a toxic relationship or love life. Here are a few ways to get rid of negativity and make a new beginning this year.
Having a relationship plan is important
We have a plan our career, finances and even travel. Why not have a plan for a better relationship? There is no harm in being practical. In fact, it can be a good exercise if your love life is going through a bad phase because a plan will help both the parties understand each other better. For example, you can figure out what you want from the relationship, your desires and expectations. Sharing these with your partner will make things transparent and lower the chances of setting wrong expectations.
Get away from the ‘wrong’ partner
If all the above-mentioned ways fail to usher in positivity, maybe it’s time to rethink about the relationship? We all might have come across people (partners) who make us feel inferior. Being in a relationship with such a person can be quite a task because we end up spending our energy and emotions to keep them happy without even realising how our own needs and emotions take a back seat. More importantly, when we are in a relationship with the ‘wrong’ person, we end up avoiding the ‘right’ person. Best way to deal with such a situation is by being honest and breaking our ties (in an amicable way) with the person.
Remember, it’s never too late to start afresh. If things aren’t working, do not let the baggage of a past year bog you down. Let 2018 be a better and positive year for everyone!
