7 deadly #sins in a #relationship

Every relationship has cardinal vices one should never commit. Here’s our list of seven.

There are too many no-nos in a relationship, but here’s what makes it to our list of Cardinal Sins in a Relationship. Read on, so that you never commit them when in a relationship.

Lust

Love begins with an image; lust with a sensation. — Mason Cooley

Lust is always a relations hip – killer. You start by embarking on a new fling by breaking up with that oncespecial someone. The worst part is, you can’t tell them why you broke up with them.

Wrath

It is said that wrath is the last thing in a man to grow old. — Alcaeus

But Alcaeus forgot to tell us that when in a relationship, it’s the first thing you ought to have control over. Make sure you never take someone else’s anger out on your partner, because not only is it taking them for granted, but it also means you disrespect them.

Gluttony

Gluttony is not a secret vice. — Orson Welles

Well, but it’s a vice for sure. And wanting to have your hand in every cookie jar isn’t acceptable in a relationship. If you want happiness, stick to one. Else, you know the drill — do we need to say more?

Pride

Pride makes us artificial and humility makes us real.

— Thomas Merton

When you know the other person is right, but still think, ‘It’s not like he/she knows a damn!’, you’ve put the final nail in the coffin of your relationship. Perhaps you think you’re too big for your boots, but there’ll be someone else who’d be proud to have your partner as theirs.

Greed

There is sufficient in the world to meet a man’s need, but not his greed. — Mahatma Gandhi

True that! When you’re never satisfied with what your partner does, and are still dreaming of getting more than what you deserve, well, please walk out of that door before you’re thrown out.

Sloth

You must avoid sloth, that wicked siren. — Horace

Yes, that’s true. It’s a wicked siren for sure. In relationships, you can’t expect everything to be done by your partner and chill out as if the world has stopped. Love is all about give and take.

Envy

Love looks through a telescope; envy, through a microscope. — Josh Billings

The moment envy, possessiveness and jealousy creep into your relationship, it’s time for a little spring cleaning — because if you don’t get rid of all that excess baggage right in the beginning, things will get messy.
