Is Love Dying in Your Relationship?

You are welcome to share Dr. Gloria Lee’s article:

Couple sitting on chairs across each other in an empty room looking distant and upset. Is it too late to save it?

And is it too late to save it?

What’s the opposite of love? Is it hate? I don’t think so.

You see, when I hear partners say, “I hate you”, it usually means something like, “I am so angry with you, I feel hurt by you, and disappointment with you because I love you and you’re supposed to love me too.”

So, there’s still some fight in them…meaning they still care.

But when your partner doesn’t care anymore, that’s when love dies.

Thus, the opposite of love is…

indifference.

That is, when your partner doesn’t feel anything for you anymore.

So, they no longer care to make things better and no longer hope or believe that things will ever change. They’re done.

And this indifference happens after years and years of trying and hoping, but getting nothing in return but hurt, disappointment, and rejection.

So, for those of you who are becoming indifferent, ensure you have actually asserted your needs and have not just hinted at them.

And when communicating these needs, be mindful that you’re doing this without attacks, criticism, or contempt that teaches your partner to be non-responsive.

And for you who have been non-responsive, it’s time for you to step up while your partner is still invested in the relationship.

Or one day, you might find yourself with a partner who has fallen out of love and become indifferent to you.

If you want to learn the secrets to resurrecting your relationship, I’ve got just the tool for you.

My book, The Kickass Couple: 7 Secrets to Transforming Your Relationship amalgamates 25 years of research working with couples, helping them to overcome conflicts, and simplifies the core principles and practices that actually work to repair your relationship and create the one of your dreams.

I’ve gotten a lot of wonderful feedback from people all over the world who have applied my method and turned their relationship around (you can read some of these on Amazon).

You can be one of these couples too. That’s why I wrote the book. I’d love to hear your feedback after you have also experienced this transformation.
