Frustration in a relationship

Frustration in a relationship

Many couples will privately admit that they are frustrated and disappointed with the person they've chosen to share their lives with. They may admit that their partner is too loyal to their annoying family, doesn't share their views, don't want to go on camping holidays,Β  and the list goes on. But they still love their partner and want to be happy together.

What is driving the frustration is that they have preconceived ideas of how a relationship is supposed to be.

Two perspectives of a relationship

Two perspectives of a relationship

We often think that love involves a merger of two lives. We expect a loving couple must think the same, eat the same, have the same ideas, have only common friends. If it is not right in every way, we believe we need to reform the relationship.

However, we need just three essential things from one another:

  • Kindness: a partner who good-humouredly tolerates our imperfections.
  • Shared vulnerability: someone with whom we can be weak, vulnerable, and honest.
  • Understanding: someone who is interested in and can make sense of our minds and how we view the world.

Three elements of a relationship

Three elements of a relationship

If we have kindness, shared vulnerability, and understanding, we will feel satisfied and loved. When differences appear in other areas, we will be content.

If we agree on every other area but lack these three ingredients, we will feel lonely and empty.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.


Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.


Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.


Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!


Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
