Successful relationships take work.
Successful relationships doesn’t happen overtime. You both have to work to make it happen. It occurs when both of you share to each others what you feel and what’s inside of your head.
You can only change yourself, not your partner.
You do not change the one that you love. It’s not love. Being together doesn’t mean you should change one another. You can improve yourself. But you cannot change your partner like you change yourself.
All arguments stem from our own fear or pain.
When you became upset, check out what’s going on inside of you rather than get angry with your partner. Sometimes, we usually aren’t upset for the reasons we think we are upset about.
Understand that men and women are very different.
We are all different people. We have our own uniqueness. You have to understand your partner’s differences and accept it.
Honor each other in some way every day.
Everyday, you have the opportunity to make your relationship better and deeper. You have to think of different ways to keep your relationship stronger.
Anger is a waste of time.
Anger is a relationship killer. When you are angry at your partner, try to give yourself some time to think and let yourself cool down. Being angry lose your sense of reasoning. Calm yourself down and gently discuss what’s going on so that your partner will understand.
Spend time with each other.
Spending time with your partner is a must. It helps keep the relationship going. Schedule a dinner date or a date night with your partner. If you are both busy, find time to meet up, like over lunch breaks.
Find a way to become and stay best friends.
Your partner is your lifetime best friend. You share how you feel with them, the problems, the pain, the happiness. You both solve it, you both overcome it all.
Be responsible for your own happiness.
You are the one who make yourself happy. If you are unhappy, it’s not your partner’s fault. We are responsible for what we feel, not the person around us.
Give what you want to get.
They say what you give is what you get. Is true. If you want love, you should give love. Life isn’t all about taking. We all have to give and take.
