Competition between the partners is a common phenomenon in any relationship. A certain kind of healthy competition harms nobody and encourages both partners to grow and evolve. When one partner gets over-competitive and make the other feel inferior, then the problem arises. Most relationships fail because of one partner asserting dominance over the other continuously for a long period of time. Each partner in a relationship is an individual entity and cannot live under the shadow of the other. Both look for ways to sustain a competitive advantage over the other. The problem comes when this is done at the cost of the other partner.
Ways to maintain a competitive advantage without hurting your partner.
The basic nature of the human being is a bit competitive. In a relationship both desire love and respect along with edge over one another. And that is not all wrong. Everyone is an individual first then somebody’s companion. Relationships reach the breaking point when a partner tries to demean or hurt other by being competitive. Some ways to avoid this are as follows-
- Communication is very necessary for managing any relationship. Never keep in your heart if your partner made you feel that you are not good enough. Always address the issue. Do not keep shut by assuming the good intentions of your partner.
- The partners should understand and know each other enough to let each other enjoy full competitive advantage over the other for once in a while. It deepens love and gives a chance to both partners to be better than the other.
- Both partners should be mature enough to apologize or make up for the times they were competitive and mean to each other.
Understanding your partner is the key to managing a relationship. Emotional and acceptance needs are far important than physical ones. Do not try to pleasure yourself with blowjob machine or any objects as they are superficial. In times of conflict, talking out is the best to have a healthy relationship.
