Addictive personalities and the effects on relationships
Past relationship histories?
I know that these things do have an effect on relationships.
People tend to behave in ways that keep them in their comfort zones.
They have no idea the CAN change-even if it is to improve life for the better.
Bad behaviors that have turned into repeated bad habits.
Inability to step back and look at the negative behaviors that had contributed to past failed marriages/relationships.
We each come into a relationship with our own experiences and ideas on how to proceed.
What do we want from a relationship?
Can we communicate our wants and needs?
Can we just plain communicate?
I don't have any links to back up my experience...just have my experience.
My 2nd marriage is far better than my first. It really has not much bearing on this new life. Other than the fact that that marriage existed for 23 years. That is my experience.
We live and learn. Hopefully, we do manage to learn from the good things as well as the bad.
