1. It should make you feel… nervous
Whether it’s jitters, butterflies or that sick feeling in your stomach when your partner hasn’t called in a few days.
Just because you’re comfortable doesn’t mean you don’t turn into a nervous wreck at the sight of one missed call (or no calls).
2. It should make you feel… sad
Sad for your partner, sad for what you said, sad for that time you were cruel. Sorrow and pain are part of the relationship – as crucial as bliss and euphoria.
You can’t enjoy the highs unless you’ve experienced the lows. Tears aren’t for the end of the relationship, but to water the seeds you’re planting together.
3. It should make you feel… uncomfortable
Exposing yourself should be uncomfortable, however, that uncomfortable moment is quickly replaced with relief, as you watch your partner accept your worst self and all those things you thought you could never show anyone.
It takes being uncomfortable to appreciate when you have no reason to be.
