Is Your Partner Rejecting You? Try This!

When a partner rejects you, do you feel that hurt in the pit of your stomach?
Your first reaction may be to move toward your partner. But, wait! A golden rule in business sales is "Do not chase the deal." Rejection is an important signal and an essential warning that you are in too close.
Now is the time to take two giant steps back away from a troubled relationship. Stop chasing. Do not say unkind words, start another relationship or make any rash decisions. Just step back and let everything calm down. Let your partner feel hungry for you.
Each relationship has a balance point and neither partner should cross past that point. If your partner misses you and begins to pursue you, try to maintain the balance point and find a comfort level. If you throw all your love and attention back on your partner, he or she may feel overwhelmed and start pushing you away again with mean words, rejection and excuses as to why they cannot be with you.
Each partner in the relationship has his or her own needs that change depending on circumstances. Your ability to meet your partner' needs can also fluctuate, and or worse, even become depleted. Try to be understanding and patient up to a point. However, if your partner is cold and unwilling to work on the relationship, perhaps you are too mismatched and may need to go back to being "just friends."
Sometimes a great friendship is the fast track to healing a troubled love relationship.
