There's no question that relationships can be tough. Whether it's finding middle ground in the relationship, finding acceptance with family or friends outside of it, or even just getting talking to work for everyone involved.
So let's have it... what was hardest for you in your relationship (or even a past relationship)? How did you work to overcome whatever that was? ((And best of all... let's not be shy with congratulating everyone on what their triumph is!!))
I see this is posted in the GLBT relationships area. Is it cool if I post something about my past relationship, even though I'm a girl and he's a guy? Or are you just looking for stuff about LGBT relationships? And is it cool if that thing is ending the relationship, or are you more looking for things which made the relationship stronger, rather than destroying it altogether?

I originally posted in LGBTR because in terms of certain things like acceptance from family and friends the problems may lie more with accepting a person's orientation first rather than just not accepting the partner, but I think it could be beneficial for everyone to maybe see how someone with a like-problems in relationships has worked through thing. Thanks for the suggestion on the forum
And the big thing with the post is looking for positive overcomings - which sometimes can be people realizing they needed different things, so if leaving the relationship so you both could have something you needed/wanted/fit for each of you better then it's positive.
