Maybe the Squeaky Wheel Shouldn’t Get the Grease
In a healthy relationship, there will be some issues that arise. It’s the parts of the relationship that are working well that balance out the rough spots. The key is to determine which issues are deal-breakers and which ones are simply annoying but not destructive to the relationship as a whole.
So, it’s important to address the squeaks, but don’t forget to take care of the quiet wheels. Neglecting them can cause them to become noisy and create bigger problems down the road. By taking care of all the wheels, you can keep the relationship running smoothly for the long haul.
