Do you need some simple yet powerful happy relationship tips?
I know, you need.
You might be 30, or, 75.
You might come in all colors, shapes, sizes and income brackets.
It doesn’t matter how long you’ve been together.
Whatever the demographics, when you see a happy couple, you just know it!
Still, relationships are not easy to maintain.
They require a significant amount of focus and heaps of effort.
Thankfully, some relationships do work out better than others and are more easily maintained.
1. Be Yourself:
We all want to be better than we really are.
We conceal our mistakes and those stories we’d like to forget.
But there’s no need to try to be perfect.
Just be yourself.
Many of us hide behind masks, afraid to show people who we really are.
But firstly, this is wearisome.
Secondly, it won’t lead to an honest and uncomplicated relationship.
It’s very important to be sincere.
Don’t be afraid to show your partner what you feel.
They are the person you are closest to.
If you have any worries or something’s wrong, just say it.
No one can read your mind.
The first step to the solution of the problem is to talk about it.
Lack of communication is the number one reason even good relationships fail.
Don’t just tell him or her; show your partner that you love him or her, that you care.
Expressing your love requires you having a keen understanding of what affection means to him or her — not to you, but to your partner.
This is where most people go wrong.
Listen to your partner’s position, without interrupting him or her. Just listen. When he or she is finished, summarize what you heard him or her say.
If you can, empathize with your significant other even though you don’t agree.
It’s hard to argue when you use this format, and best of all, you may come up with an understanding or a solution.
3. Respect Each Other:
Treating your Partner with respect is likely to get you the same in return.
If you love someone, you have to respect and treat that person as a human being.
Often times, this does require giving personal space.
And don’t be afraid to express your feelings of appreciation with your partner — he or she will be thankful that you did.
Don’t forget about respect, even when you’re having a fight.
Quite often, quarrels are followed by recriminations.
Be careful with words. You’ll simmer down, but you won’t be able to take your insults back.
It doesn’t matter how sorry you are afterwards, your sharp words will leave a scar on your partner’s heart.
Respect creates trust in a relationship.
4. Never Criticize:
You shouldn’t push anyone down just to make yourself feel a bit taller, especially not your life partner.
You pushing him or her down a mile to get you a few extra feet brings your relationship as a whole to a loss.
5. Spend Quality Time Together:
When you make a point of being together, without kids, pets and other interruptions, you will form a bond that will get you through life’s rough spots.
There’s nothing that will make you closer than creating memories together. Traveling, dance classes, snorkeling, competitions — do what you find exciting and fun together more often.
6. Give Personal Space:
It’s sometimes easier for us to demand our own personal time than to grant it to the person we love.
But two people can’t be together 24/7.
Don’t stand in the way of your partner’s hobbies, and don’t give up yours.
You fell in love with your partner the way he/she was, and your beloved fell in love with you and accepted all your hobbies and habits.
Making sacrifices is pointless, as no one will appreciate this.
Just be happy together.
Both of you should bring new and exciting things into your relationship.
Always do your best to give your partner space when he or she really needs it.
Live a life together, but also lead your separate lives.
It’s that simple.
“Sexual and emotional intimacy is the bright shiny star of relationships. Intimacy is the difference between your relationship with your barista and your relationship with your spouse. You build intimacy over time. Intimacy is the feeling of belonging and being loved. It’s the feeling of being known and understood. It’s the feeling of being accepted and appreciated. If you have ever experienced or heard someone describe their relationship as hollow or empty, it’s probably because it’s lacking intimacy.” ― Laura Heck, a marriage and family therapist in Salt Lake City, Utah
