In today’s episode of “Will You Marry Me?”, I’d like to talk to you about, “The Top 3 Relationship Killers.” Relationships don’t always work out the way we wanted. Sometimes, this is due to the simple fact that certain people aren’t meant to be together – at least not for long. At times, though, there are relationships that have enormous potential to thrive, but they die because of the presence of relationship killers. Relationships can die in one of two ways. Either the couple will part ways, or they’ll remain physically together but with neither joy nor enthusiasm.
Several factors can cause relationships to wither, but today, I want us to look at the top three (3) culprits.
- Speaking Ill of Your Partner (Especially Behind their Back)
Each time someone speaks (or thinks) ill of you, they’ve cursed you – whether they intended to curse or not is irrelevant. There are two types of curses: intentional curses, and unintentional curses. The latter is more common, but the problem is, they’re both potent, and they both lead to the same result: the projection of negative energy towards the target.
Those with weak spiritual defenses will be affected by curses to a greater or lesser degree. The curse can manifest as unexplained illness or a highly suspicious pattern of bad luck. Of all the things that can ruin a relationship, speaking ill of one’s own partner is the most dangerous. Please avoid.
2. Talking Too Much about Your Relationship
“Loose lips sink ships,” the saying goes. And nothing sinks faster than a relationship in which the couple shares too much with those on the outside. Remember, not everyone (including those closest to you) is happy about your relationship.
When too many people know about your internal affairs, it makes it easier to become a target. People who previously weren’t targeting you will suddenly show interest in you – some to rejoice with you, others to undermine you with their eyes of jealousy and hate. If you desire a thriving relationship, it would be wise to control your sharing habits before it leads to your downfall.
The less you reveal, the fewer your problems will be. As the Scripture affirms, “Those who guard their mouths and their tongues keep themselves from calamity” (Proverbs 21:23, NIV). One sure way to protect your relationship is to control your tongue.
3. Holding on to Past Relationships
Sometimes, what prevents us from moving forward in life is unnecessary attachments to the past. When it comes to relationships, holding on to old feelings about a former relationship can make us miss present opportunities. Many relationships suffer because we choose to live in the shadow of our exes – holding on to memories that no longer benefit us. This can be avoided.
Love isn’t always about holding on to people. Sometimes, it’s about letting go of people in our past who don’t belong in our present, and welcoming those who do.
With love and blessings
