Few people really take the time to give their life an honest assessment. They go through their days and deal with the issues that arise. They may be unhappy, but believe it is an issue that cannot be corrected. They are often afraid of losing their partner and facing life alone. This is fairly common, but it keeps people from making positive changes in life. Making life changes may seem difficult and lonely, but it is better than staying with the wrong person.
When people are brave enough to take an honest look at their life, they may be able to see what is really making them unhappy. A person may no longer communicate with their partner or have any fun in the relationship. They may miss the long walks and talks they had in the beginning of the relationship. Life has worn the pair down and neither has realized it happened. Some relationships can be salvaged with effort on the part of both partners.
