What’s Holding You Back In A Relationship


Boyd tells us that the number one thing holding us back from the right relationship is that we’re always wanting to be right! Boyd states, “I need to be right because when I’m right I can rely on that and I can’t rely on anyone else.” She explains this is how most women feel, and this can ultimately hold you back.

You have to be willing to be wrong in dating. Acknowledge you can be wrong, and that will allow you to fully open up. Us women are so used to being, “strong independent women” and we love being in control and always knowing the outcome. Oshima states, “sometimes you just have to go with the flow and that’s how things happen organically.” It’s hard sometimes for independent women to allow the man to take the lead and receive in a relationship. But doing so, will let your relationship thrive!

Most women haven’t perfected the “transitioning” between work mode, and love mode. Women should have a transition between when they leave work to when they are back with their significant other, so it shows a man that you’re giving them your undivided attention.
