“Nobody can predict the future. You just have to give your all to the relationship you’re in and do your best to take care of your partner, communicate and give them every last drop of love you have. I think one of the most important things in a relationship is caring for your significant other through good times and bad” -Nick Cannon
There is no one person in this world who can teach you the ideal way of maintaining relationships. Yes, there are some basic codes that need to be followed but every relationship is different from that of the other.
No matter how alike you scenarios look, they can never be similar. Every relationship has isn’t own flaws and the only ones who can mend it are the ones who are a part of it.
We spend way too much time thinking about things that are wrong and really less time on things that are beautiful. A lot of our energy goes in being mad about our partners’ folly and calculating where they went wrong.
The problem is we humans always find grass to be greener on the other side. Little do we understand that the grass is greener where you water. Things would’ve been easier if we spent more time in correcting ourselves than constantly complaining about the fault in someone else.
Most of the issues take place because we as individuals don’t know what we want from our relationships. We expect something else and demand something completely different. The first step of a healthy relationship is to work on yourself.
When you know exactly what you want, it won’t be tough for you to identify whether your partner has the same to offer or not. Most of the misunderstandings happen because we are not sure of our own wants and too much of guess work takes place and hence leads to chaos.
Some of the most important keys of maintaining a healthy relationship are:
1. Accept unconditionally.
Respect your partner and where they come from. Respect their part decisions and choices. Most importantly, allow them to be their natural self in front of you and accept them as they are. We all have some flaws. We are too quick to judge others but never ready to self-evaluate. Make sure your partner feels comfortable enough to be their true self unapologetically, in front of you.
Relationships are a rollercoaster ride. I’m not saying forgive every mistake but understand that not everything needs a huge reaction.
3. Show up
Allow yourself to be free in front of them and let them love you for that. This life is too short to be scared about opening in front of someone you love. If someone truly loves you, they will do it for who you are and not for who you pretend to be.
4. Ask yourself if you’re ready for a relationship
We know what we want in a partner but mostly, we don’t know if we have enough to offer. Before jumping into a relationship, work on becoming a better person emotionally and mentally.
