Whenever a person in a relationship feels that something else is more important than them trouble is never far away.
This can range from kids to work, from parents to the attractive person in the office.
One of the biggest fears I see is the worry we are not enough and when other things become a priority the fear is compounded.
Our partner’s feelings need to matter so you must understand what behaviours will equal they are enough.
The cost of them not feeling enough is they shut down emotionally and meet their needs elsewhere and that can create all manner of problems.
People’s needs must be met so understanding them is critical.
