Are you expressing your love to your mate, or do you leave them starving for it like you’ve got them on the Slim Fast diet plan? When they express a hurt that you’ve caused do you take ownership of it, or do you get defensive, lash out at them and begin to tell them how they aren’t doing enough to please you? Do you apologize when you’re wrong, or do you always have to take up the “top dog” stance? Are your words uplifting, or filled with sarcasm which brings others down? How much fun are you to be around? How pleasant is your company? Are you adding joy to the relationship, or something else? Is your negativity sucking the life out of your relationship? I’ve heard that unhappy people only make others miserable. Take a moment and think, if today was the last day you were with your mate, how will they sum up your treatment of them in the relationship? Are you expressing your love for your mate, or are you expressing something else?
