No one is perfect. We’re all bound to make mistakes in our relationship at some point. However, there are some mistakes that shouldn’t be made more than once if your partner truly loves you.
Some people think that being in love and long-term relationship justifies for your partner to treat you with less courtesy. Because of this, some partners have the notion that it is acceptable to repeat some mistakes with a partner; mistakes that cannot accepted from a friend, family member or even co-worker.
When a partner makes a mistake, it is important to apologize, talk it out and strive to never make such a mistake again.
If your partner truly loves you, these mistakes will only be made once:
- Forget important dates
It is fine if your partner forgets to acknowledge your birthday or anniversary. However, they should be angry that they forget and apologize for not acknowledging a special moment in your life.
If your partner really cares about you, they will make an effort to not repeat such mistake again and always make sure that they put a smile on your face on days that are most special to you.
If your partner cheats on you once and you’ve both agreed to move on, then the mistake shouldn’t be repeated again.
If your partner sees how heartbroken you felt, they won’t want to hurt you again. However, if your significant other does not show any remorse or strive to seek your forgiveness, then it’s time to reconsider the relationship.
- Calling you disrespectful names
Teasing and calling names are common in a relationship. But there are some certain words that can cross the line. If you explain to your partner that you’re not cool with some certain words, then they should understand that you find it disrespectful and should call you with other respectful names.
If they refuse to accept their mistake and just call it a joke, then you have to consider if you’re really with the person who loves and deserves you.
- Showing up late without giving a head’s up
This can be seen as an action that can be easily forgiven but it actually shows how much your significant other values you.
Your partner should be able to meet up with appointments on time and send you a text if they can’t make it or if there is a slight delay. This shows that they respect and love you.
- Bringing up triggers during fights
We all have some topics that trigger a great emotional reaction. If your partner knows what these triggers are and still decide to use it against you when there’s a fight, then it shows that they do not respect you.
If your partner truly loves and respect you, then they wouldn’t use your past or insecurities against you to make you uncomfortable when you’re having a fight.
These actions shouldn’t be made be made more than once if your partner truly loves and respects you!
