Am in relationship with my boss from ten months .in starting I didn't liked him because of his selfish and lying behaviour after some time I was realizing that because of any incidence he is like that .with time we came closure .he was very nice and caring at that time we met regularly but we never had any serious conversation he even told me that he will tell his parents about it soon .i already told mine in the beginning .but after some time because of some incidents I realizing that he came in relationship because he wanted someone to trust for work and because we were of same caste so there will be no problems in marriage .now hewasnt caring at all .we rarely meet and when we do he always on the phone with his clients or just scrolling in internet .even he never takes opinions of mine in personal or professional things .i feel that we are not on same level in professional so he doesn't respect me or give importance to me that much. He keep billing with me like my boss but I never do because I always thinks it's not my thing to keep a record of money in relationships. One day I found he was talking to his female friend who wasn't talking with him like a friend but like a girlfriend we was talking general things but I guess he shouldn't talk to these type of girls so even we had a breakup for 12-15 days .he didn't even talked me about it I solved everything on my own because I have fear of loosing my people. One day I went with my friends at birthday party in late night he hug in wrong way it was live on instagram so my bf also knew about it he was very angry but I told him everything but still now I feel he don't trust me. One day I prank on him and he breakup .after 3 days when I realized he is serious about it I called and solved. So one day I asked for 3 things 1) agreement for professional things .personal and professional things separate no fight will be related to another 2) trust and communication should be here 3) he needs to tell his parents about our relationship after lock down he broke up by saying he can't handle me and he is sick of me. 7 days we weren't talking .every time we broke up I suffered mentally. On 7th day he messaged me randomly and somehow we started talking again. He was talking to some random girl on social media he didn't knew her personally he didn't wanted me to know about it but somehow I knew .he told her he is committed but still he talks to her .i want to know why .can't he talk to me? I even ask him if he is hiding something but he nodded one day he told me he will only be in this relationship if I will support him in professional life otherwise not .i want him to support in my new business too but he will not am not gonna breakup .it hurt me like hell today too. Today am realizing he do not respect love me or don't give respect me that much sometime I feel he try to manipulate me too .i even realize this relationship is a business .if I leave it doesn't affect his business but my presence adds some help to his business .i don't know if he will trust me. Or openly talk to me ever .or will we ever be like normal couple who are madly in love each other .one of our mutual friend says he will do after marriage can I trust that he will change after marriage. I thought should I make more efforts for this relationship or what should I do I was a happy person but now because of these thoughts am suffering from mental breakdown I can't even talk to anyone .because I don't have anyone to talk about .me and boyfriend can do a lot together but may be because of his ego he want to be superior always. What should I do? I don't wanna breakup because I guess there will be any solution?

Know Warning Signs Of Violence In Relationships!

Know Warning Signs Of Violence In Relationships!

Relationships are either delicate or strong, depending upon the bonding with your partner. The bonding depends on various factors. Some of the most essential ones being emotional attachment, friendliness, sense of ease, mental compatibility and a feeling of sustained emotional support from the relationship. This is applicable to all relationships; be it a relationship with your spouse, a parental relation with your children, a relationship with your friends, relatives, etc.

Whenever we talk about abusive relationships, we picture black eyes and bruised cheeks. However, violence in a relationship usually doesn’t start with physical harm right away. It begins with subtlety and slowly builds up to mental and sometimes physical abuse. Here are some of the warning signs which should immediately raise red flags that a relationship is abusive or violent. 

  1. Hurting Purposely: If your partner has ever teased you in a hurtful way and said something to hurt you only to put the blame on you for being “too sensitive”, this is a definite sign of emotional abuse that you are going through. Trust your instincts if you feel you should get out of it. Especially, if it is starting to become routine. 
  2. Scaring You: Has it ever happened that your partner has hit a wall or driven at dangerously high speed to scare you? If the answer is yes, you’re in for trouble. This kind of behaviour gets worse! Take the warning and leave!
  3. Finding Faults: Many a time, it happens that your partner may start finding fault in the way you dress, do your hair, wear make up etc. He might get angry or force you to change your style to suit his way, beware! This will multiply in due course and turn into a dangerous form of domination. 
  4. Spying: Have you ever found out that your partner has checked your personal email, your web usage, computer history or even gone through your bag and personal papers? Take a hint; this is an impending sign that your partner is trying to establish control over your life. 
  5. Lost connection with friends and family: An important warning sign that your relationship is getting abusive is when you have lost connection with friends and family because of your partner! 
  6. "Playful" use of force in sex: Have you been forced to have sex by your partner? Or have you been threatened with violence if you don’t comply with your partner’s wishes? These are all tell-tale signs of an abusive relationship. 

There are no certain ways to tell that particular instances are warning signs of an abusive or violent relationship; the victim might not even realize, but friends and well-wishers must take notice and come forward to help.

Relationship Issue - Know More About It!

Relationship Issue - Know More About It!

More than 70% of sexual problems are because of psychological reasons. Relationships are never easy – all relationships go through ups and downs, and are often faced with challenges, small and large. Simple day-to-day stressors can strain a relationship and threaten its stability.

Common Relationship Issues

Many couples face issues communicating effectively. Typically, relationship concerns include -

  • Routine conflict
  • Barriers to communication
  • Financial difficulties
  • Lack of trust
  • Emotional distance
  • Sexual intimacy issues

Sometimes, for unmarried couples, marriage itself is the issue at hand, where one partner is willing to settle down or is subject to familial and social pressure in doing so but the other partner is reluctant to marry.

Psychological Issues Contributing to Relationship Problems

Chronic stress and mental health issues like anxiety or depression can lead to conflict between partners. This may even have a major impact on your sex life. Mental health issues can strongly affect arousal and definitely ruin the mood sometimes. Anxiety, depression, or such related mental health struggles can make it difficult to stay relaxed and enjoy sex, overshadowing it with intrusive distractions and a host of worries. Reportedly, over 70% of sexual problems are because of psychological issues.

Over time, the struggle with mental illness in a variety of forms can hurt your self-esteem and make them feel unworthy of sexual attention. Sometimes, one or both partners employ addictive behaviours, for example, substance abuse, to avoid confronting the root of the problem leading to relationship conflict.

Relationship problems not only affect couples, but also those people who are close to them. For instance - children who repeatedly witness relationship quarrels and conflicts between the parents.

Therapy for Relationship Conflicts

When relationship issues start interfering with everyday functioning, or when there is uncertainty about continuing the relationship in one or both the partners, relationship counselling or therapy is advised.

A relationship counsellor/therapist is a trained professional who conducts a close interactive session with the individual or couple facing relationship issues. During the session, the therapist communicates with them, discusses their relationship history and the troubles, empathizes with their problems and helps them work through those using various techniques.

Often, couples/individuals approach a relationship counsellor hoping that he/she might be able to help in some way. Some couples hope to enhance intimacy, improve communication skills, or learn to navigate new grounds in their lives. Others may expect the counsellor to act as a mediator and solve their arguments.

Different therapy approaches are designed to address relationship problems. It is unlikely for a relationship counsellor to take sides or recommend that you end the troublesome relationship. Instead, they allow the procedure to naturally unfold. Trained professionals help partners and individuals communicate their thoughts, needs and emotions clearly while listening to the other partner attentively. For counselling to solve relationship problems significantly, each partner should commit to the session for as long as it continues. Each of the partners must demonstrate honesty and willingness in making the relationship work, and accept personal accountability.
