Loving each other is not enough.
Have you ever wished you could find a little more joy and love in your relationship?
Or maybe you struggle to end fights quickly and often find yourself in a doom-loop of negative feelings instead of having each others’ back during hard times?
If so, you’ve probably found yourself wondering while others seem to have perfectly loving partners and well-functioning relationships while you don’t. And you might also have read a book or two about relationships and why they fail, but here’s the problem with all of this:
You don’t need someone to talk about your mistakes, you need concrete action steps to improve your behavior. What you need is action and practice.
While most of us grow up watching Disney movies and listening to fairy tales on how they lived happily ever after, real relationships are complex.
A healthy, strong relationship is determined by so many factors, including the personality traits of the partners, but also external factors. Our stress levels, psychological and environmental factors, emotions, life events, and current circumstances are all challenges our relationships need to overcome daily.
While falling in love is easy, having a strong, healthy, and happy relationship is based on hard work. And everyone who’s trying to tell you the opposite is either lying, didn’t ever experience a long-term relationship or is incredibly lucky.
Everyone wants a vibrant, loving, strong relationship, and the good news is that you can actually do a lot to achieve that goal. Great relationships are no coincidence. They are based on certain values and principles that both partners are comfortable with and rely on.
And while every relationship is different, some of these principles do apply for most of us.
These habits are just a reminder, and you probably already know the importance of them. However, it pays to make a conscious effort in applying them more often.
