You know that feeling you get at the beginning of a relationship? It’s utter bliss and your rose-coloured glasses are seeing everything half-full, not half-empty. You look great, feel great, they’re great, you’re great, everything is great. But that feeling of pure, unadulterated happiness doesn’t last too long. I’m not saying it’s all bad; you can just find yourself in that comfort zone where things are still good but maybe not as exciting. And that’s to be expected. The honeymoon phase isn’t mean to last forever.
But what happens when it’s not a comfort zone but the complete opposite, where everything feels forced and overwhelming and is as uncomfortable as it gets? Sadly, that’s the sign of a relationship coming to an end and hopefully you’re both in a place where you know, together, you’re about to flatline.
