Don't ... until you read this.

I wish I lived in a world where no matter what happened in your relationship — within reason, I’m not condoning cheating or anything here — everything could easily work itself out.

I know it’s not realistic, but I’m willing to put on my rose-colored glasses when things get really hard.

I think one of the hardest things to remember in a relationship, and something I am constantly going back to every day, is that a relationship is supposed to be two people who are able to have their own thoughts, friends, and lives, yet can come home at night and be with the person they love.

Let me explain.

When you become too dependent on your significant other, it becomes unthinkable that you would do anything without that person.

You might find yourself wondering if he would be okay with you going out to the movies with your best friend, or refusing to make a decision about your own personal life until you get some advice from your partner.

I’m not saying it’s bad to want to do everything with your significant other, but it’s not exactly healthy either.

Think of it this way: You should want to be able to be your own person outside of your relationship in addition to having a relationship.

Of course, smothering each other isn’t good. But neither is ghosting each other for no reason. A relationship needs to find its happy middle, which is actually a LOT harder than it sounds.

I am still learning every day about my partner  and how to stay happy in my relationship while still being my own person.

This middle ground is hard to find and it isn't hard to see why so many women feel like their relationship is failing.

You want to be your significant other's everything, but then you forget to think about your own needs.

And when no one else can relate to what you're going through, it can feel like there's no hope for you or your relationship.

Trust me, I've had these thoughts before and i can honestly say it does you no good to think this way.  All you need is some inspiration to help get yourself back on the track to a healthy relationship.

And if it turns out your relationship isn't worth fighting for, YOU still are, so never give up on yourself, relationship or not.

Here are some inspirational quotes about relationships to remind you that you're a strong woman who can fight for her relationship, even when it feels like it's failing.
