Three things that can KILL a relationship

Relationship Killers

We all dream of building a successful relationship and it has never been the wish of a person to want his/her relationship to fail but at times, it just keeps failing. Have you ever asked yourself why? Be it cause of the emergence of distance where the partners don’t know how to keep a distance relationship, or loss of interest in your partner or any other reason you think causes relationships to fail, the truth about the matter is that pride, lack of communication and taking your partner’s love for granted are the major killers of all relationships. Whatever reason you may have, evolves from these three reasons. Let’s look at how these three killers cause your relationship to fail.


Pride, as briefly explain in the article the importance of an apology in a relationship, is one of the factors causing relationships to fail. No one loves to be with someone who is too prideful and doesn’t acknowledges his mistakes. Someone who always sees the wrongs in others doing and think he’s always right. Take for instance, your boyfriend want all his friends to know that he bought you a new shoe or cloth. He always wants you to do whatever he says and believes so much in the fact that he is never wrong. He wants you to respect him more than you respect your father and feels like he is your king. Are you going to be comfortable in such a relationship? Of course not, it’s obvious you wouldn’t be comfortable around him any longer and will start feeling bored and irritated with this altitude of his. This will eventually create a distance between both of you and even though you can be physically in contact, emotionally, you might be miles apart. There is no way a relationship built on pride can succeed. For you to start having a successful relationship, you must keep away your pride cause pride is a great relationship killer.

Lack of communication

Communication is one of the most important things which is needed for the success of any relationship. How do you expect a relationship to succeed when you stay for over a month without communicating with your partner? There is something about communication, when it’s lacking, it makes the partners to start judging situations based on assumptions due to over thinking. And when situations are judged on assumptions, it may lead to false conclusions. And A mindset based on false conclusions will eventually cause you to misunderstand your partner, loss trust in him and therefore the kill the feelings you had. This can eventually bring an end to your relationship. So to ensure a relationship runs smoothly, the flow of communication must be constant all throughout the relationship.

Taking your partners’ love for granted

Some people misunderstand the meaning of love and feel like kings and queens who deserve to be treated better because their partner has proven how much love he has for them. Maybe he tells you every day that he can’t live without you or that you are the best thing that happened to him. Don’t fool yourself into thinking that you are the air he breathes. Of Course not, he can live and survive without you if he wants to. Some people after hearing such words misunderstand what actually their partner means and assumes that they are like small “gods” before him. Some even change their altitude and start feeling superior and might even go as far as speaking rudely to their partner. By doing so, you are taking your partners love for granted and trust me, it’s a big relationship killer. The moment your partner realizes that you are taking his love for granted, he is going to start thinking of moving forward, and definitely, forget about you. Taking your partners’ love for granted is something you should never do in a relationship

    Smooth roads never make good drivers..
    Smooth sea never make good sailors..
    Clear skies never make good pilots..
    Problem free life never makes a strong & good person..
    Have a tough, but winning day ahead….
    Be strong enough to accept the challenges of life..
    Am so proud of you bro, you gonna reach your cruisin’ altitude

      Good day Onyema,
      I’m happy this post is of help to you. I think one of the reasons your girlfriend can be taking your love for granted can be cause of the way you prove to love her so much. Try to make her understand that it has to be reciprocal and hopefully she will change.
      Thanks for taking the time to stop by and submit a comment. I greatly appreciate that.
      Good luck with your girlfriend and do have the best Christmas season ever.

    Yes you are right about “Lack of communication” which might be a reason for killing the relationships. It also need to have trust of partners which make the relationship stay for lifelong.

      Hello Samir,
      I think you pointed out the most important relationship killer, “Lack of Communication”. Nothing kills a relationship than this. If you examine all relationships which have failed, including relationships in which there is no trust, you will see that it all started with a lack of communication.
      Thanks for stopping by bro,
      Do have a great Christmas Holiday.
