Let’s face it! Today, our work priorities have completely taken over our life’s real priorities. This never-ending cycle of making money sometimes kills our relationships.
As we make more money, our appetites increase and we think we need more money. Once begun, this cycle never ends. We keep going deeper into a jungle, returning home tired every day and before we realize it, years pass by and we have become old and have nothing else except our career to show.
This work-life balance gets disturbed due to our craziness to be the best at our careers. Why our careers are killing your relationship:
Yelling about work pressure
I have so much work to do…. I can’t waste my time in other things. Blah blah blah!! Don’t complain all this to your partner. Try to make time for other valuable conversation and for your loved ones.
No outings with loved ones
Whether you’ve been married for 15 years or been dating for 6 months, you’ve got to make plans to get out of the house and spend some time together.
No surprise factor
Bring surprise activities into the relationship than a week of planned dates. Surprise your partner with spontaneous dinner date or outing.
So much more into phones
Your phone should not be with you 24X7. Whether you are checking e-mails or recent updates, you need to leave your phone when you’re with your partner.
Stopped having sex
Overworked, tired, stressed, not in mood – this could be the reasons that couples don’t have much sex and are not happy this way.
Always get excited about work
You get excited about work because you love doing your job. Accepted !! But what about those who love being with you?? Invest your time equally both in life and career that will make you more happy.
You don’t go to bed together anymore
It’s not only sex that matters!! The simple act of going to sleep together, cuddling before sleep, watching TV or playing games too matter for a healthy relationship.
Mostly remain out for work
Try to stay connected when you travel a lot for work. Absence makes hearts grow fonder and anyone who is away from their husband or wife for long, knows that. Try to take your partner along or try to stay connected as much as possible.
