66. Relationship Realities: Learn Why It Is Important To Keep Your Personal Life Personal.
This wisdom was passed on to me by my grandmother:
‘What happens in your relationship belongs in your relationship.
If you tell all your friends how awful your partner is after every argument and so on, yet you continue to live with them – you will look a fool.
But also, how can they support you as a couple, if you have left them thinking your partner is an idiot and so on?’
Sure there are times, for example if a partner is violent, that I would urge you to tell someone so as to get help. But this is a topic for a different time – and I also covered this topic in the previous section.
It is however far better to keep things to yourself. Tell a therapist, tell your mother if you have to, otherwise learn to keep silent.
You will feel better about yourself – and you will have remained loyal to your partner too.
And ask yourself this: Would you be happy if you found out that your partner was gossiping about you to their friends? Many would be extremely unhappy.
So why do this to your partner – the person you spend your life with and love!
