Performing positive 24/7

Anybody else whose significant other expects them to perform positive throughout? It’s like you are not allowed to have any other different emotion. You sort of act different from your usual self for a day and you get hit with the “Are you okay?” text.

People chill just because your partner is acting different for a day does not mean they are cheating or are not interested in the relationship anymore. It’s just normal human emotional cycle but once you start pressuring someone to be in a positive performance throughout you will sort of push them away.

If you can be silent around your partner for hours on occasions and you both feel comfortable and relaxed about it, hold onto that relationship. You have reached the ultimate comfort stage.

In other words umekaliwa chapo.
