I truly believe that a strong relationship is based on love. However, love is not enough. In order to have a healthy relationship, both partners have to be willing to work on it.
In this article I would like to highlight the most important points based on personal experience to keep a relationship strong:
1. Share happy moments together.
They make any relationship better. Travel and spend the most important celebrations together. Try new activities like snowboarding, bungee jumping or any other one you’ve always wanted to.
Also, these real emotions will help you to understand each other better.
2. Remain positive and support your partner during difficult moments.
If your partner has difficult times, he needs support and energy from you. Even if a bad situation happened because of his mistake or somehow affects you, the last thing he needs from you is blaming or being constantly in a bad mood.
Accept any difficult situation as a challenge and try to remain enthusiastic.
3. Talk about what you like and dislike.
By saying about good things you show your appreciation and gratefulness for what your partner does and who he is. Some people forget to do it and concentrate only on negative moments, which is a mistake.
Some women actually take the following strategy, based on their feelings: they get upset because their partners did something wrong (at least they think so) ▶️they don’t talk about what happened however try to show their dissatisfaction in lots of hidden ways. Here is a trick. How their partners are supposed to understand that they did something wrong? Nobody even told them anything. What they see is a constantly angry or upset women who tries to keep distance for no reason.
Taking decisions based on emotions would be too easy. The only solution which can lead to a healthy relationship in this situation is to discuss.
And in most cases after discussion, lots of concerns and fares just go away.
4. Remember that your partners your choice.
And it should be respected. Listen to his needs and concerns, show that you hear him and try to make it better.
Avoid using sarcasm during a conflict, be patient and remain calm.
And never be afraid to say “sorry” if you know that you might insult your partner by words or actions.
5. Don’t compare your relations to anyone else’s.
First of all, something that you see around maybe just a nice picture (especially when it comes to Instagram and other social networks). Also, every relationship case is individual.
If Linda’s husband brings her flowers all the time with or without occasion, it doesn’t mean that your husband should start immediately doing the same thing.
So any time you want to compare, keep in your mind point 5. Compare to others only for the purpose of calling attention to a partner’s strengths and talents.
