When you think of a love story, chances are you don't necessarily include everything in your fairy tale. You don't think of the tiny little hole and petty unhappinesses that are a part of the relationship as a whole. While these not so fantasy-like issues are common in all relationships, they don't define you and your partner's togetherness.
How do some couples manage to crumble under these tiny unpleasantries, and others remain thriving?
Learn to Compliment
I don't mean "Oh, that's a nice shirt." Really soul search for what your partner means to you. Dig out every aspect of him or her that makes them valuable, that makes them the one being on the planet you can't live without. And then feed them those kind of compliments (the heavy ones) slowly, and honestly.
Don't Hold Grudges
This is a difficult one, but grudges only damage you as you leave pent up anger unreleased. Try to get everything out that's bothering you when you're fighting in real time, don't let it spill out 3 weeks from now when you're fighting about a new thing. Resolve it when it actually happens, and like the old saying goes "Never go to bed angry."
Sometimes differences in relationships are just too great, and letting each other go might be the best option. But don't give up too easily if believe your partnership is worth it!

We ship all of our physical products with FedEx, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Signatures are required on all orders.
Returns & Exchanges
We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.
We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
