Read on to discover what will surely annoy you in a relationship.


(March 21-April 19)

One thing that surely drives you crazy in a relationship is when your partner is complacent and perhaps reuses the same date ideas over and over again.

One pet peeve you have in your relationship is when your partner seems distracted or indifferent during a group party or hang out. Yes, as a Gemini you are incredibly outgoing and bubbly and honestly in comparison your partner might be more subdued. However, that does not excuse their inability to be friendly during social gatherings.


(June 21-July 22)

One thing that annoys you in a relationship is when your partner constantly complains about every little thing. Yes, life is hard, but that does not mean they always have to be negative. Complaining about the world will not fix their problems and if anything it will just push you away.

Transforming Self-Sabotage Into Self Mastery

For centuries, the mountain has been used as a metaphor for the big challenges we face, especially ones that seem impossible to overcome. To scale our mountains, we actually have to do the deep internal work of excavating trauma, building resilience, and adjusting how we show up for the climb. In the end, it is not the mountain we master, but ourselves.
