Emotional imbalance is a concept that may be obviously observed in most relationships. Without doubt, this can impact love and relationships negatively. Just the way it takes two to tangle, It also takes two individuals with emotional intelligence to experience a fantastic relationship. Even though some individuals are naturally capable of fixing things up, however, EI can be learnt and this is a relief. Emotional Intelligence is a concept everyone needs to get familiar with, learn and express. If we maintain our love and relationship well, we are contributing a quota to making the world a better place. A lot of people will mostly be loved, express love and not becoming a monster who hurt others through poor experiences.
