Self-preservation tactics in relationships…

As a romantic relationship wears on and the arguments and hurt feelings pile up into a blackened mountain of pain and misery…

People develop self-preservation tactics to protect them from future suffering.

They start to build a wall to defend against their partner… the goal being essentially to cut off the connection and be able to ‘not care’.

Which is the antithesis of a relationship in the first place.

It only makes sense.

That’s why it’s clear and plain to see that relationships have a time limit…

Nothing is actually meant to last forever and both people have to be mature enough to let it go when it’s time.
