'But you promised!' Do those words sound familiar? Once again, you had committed yourself to a something you had no intention of following through on; once again a lover was looking at you with hurt puppy eyes and you had no idea what to say. Yes, it was uncomfortable not giving someone the answer they wanted when they asked probing questions.
But you had to learn to curb your tendency to ignore your own needs and priorities just because saying 'no' to someone or something was difficult in the moment. Most of the misunderstandings between you and your lover stemmed from your inability to reveal uncomfortable truths.The answer? Unfortunately for you, the solution to this imbroglio would have made you more uncomfortable before the pressure eased up. You needed to think carefully about what you wanted from this relationship. What were you looking for? Where were the two of you headed? You needed to be honest with yourself, and then take those honest truths to your sweetie. Your desires may not have been in line, but there may have been a compromise that could have been reached. It wouldn't have been easy though -- there would have been hard work and tempering your tendency to hit the road. But the hard truth is, all successful relationships demand hard work.
