“It’s not lack of love, but lack of friendship that’s makes unhappy marriages” Friedrich Nietzsche
Relationships require work and attention, for a relationship to work there should be two people who are willing to work at it no matter the cost. Most people are of the believe that love is all happiness but what the refuse to see is that it’s the little fights and angry moments that helps iron out any differences we may have as complete different individuals. Every beautiful relationship that you are seeing right now or might have seen in the past must have gone through fire but in the end it’s the desire to stay together kept then going. Remember “willingness is all partners need to make their relationship work”. This is few ways to keep your relationship going.
We all need to know how to accept each other , no partner can possess all the qualities you would like to see in your partner .It is extremely important to accept the bad side as well as the good side of your partner, and help change the ones that can be changed without sacrificing your partners personality. You as an individual must make an honest assessment of where and who you are in life right now and accept it. It is the only way that will help the other partner accept you as well, so you can move on to the next level
Having a trustworthy partner goes a long way to help create a buffer between you and the difficulty of the world and relationships. When you have a trustworthy partner which you can rely on, it makes it easier to make the decisions that matters the most about relationships without thinking too much about the risks involved. One way to build trust is to be honest with your partner with your feelings, needs, and thoughts.
Everybody knows that communication is a very important in every relationship, but most of us do not know how to communicate. Good communication is when both partners are able to share their emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual aspects of their lives without feeling judged or devalued .Neither you or your partner is a mind reader or a magician to know what the other is feeling or thinking.
Relationships and marriages need to grow. As the relationship grow both of you must become one unit. This means being involved with each other in a supportive manner without compromising your values or sacrificing yourself for the relationship. Interdependence means having time to yourself as well as time together. Partners who are interdependent have time for and interest in what the other is up to and helps in whatever way he /she can help. The key here is finding the balance between what you must compromise and what you cannot sacrifice.
Everybody in this world needs attention and recognition. And you can take advantage of that to make your relationship better by expressing your appreciation on a deep and emotional level. You need to make each other know that you are grateful for one another’s actions and efforts. Look for any opportunity to let your lover know you respect their support and efforts positively. This can be done by just saying ” thank you” when your partner does something for you.
Showering your partner with little gifts, staying lonely during the day if you are apart and being there for you partner no matter what are just ways you can reinforce your relationships. Be mindful of any actions or behaviors that might undermine your love and get them changed ASAP.
Every relationship needs nurturing , care and two committed people who are determined to make it work. If you truly love your partner then make all the efforts and it wil be so worth it in the end.
