We can strengthen our relationships with our family in a lot of different ways. Those ways don’t need to be complex, hard, or complicated. Small things are the ones that make huge differences.
Here are the seven simple ways which can help us in strengthening our family relationships:
1. We should not play the martyr.
We are not supposed to sacrifice ourselves for our family so much that we become resentful and bitter, and we start judging, criticizing, and also complaining. When we are doing something for our family, we should do it with our whole heart.
We should do it simply as we feel like we have to do it. We should not do something with the purpose to be rewarded for the sacrifices we make. We should not play the martyr.
2. We should be interested in every family member.
One excellent way in which we can strengthen our relationships with our family is to become interested in every family member.
We should do that to discover something more about what they profoundly love, and are passionate about.
3. We should let healing do its job.
We should address what should be addressed – particularly in ourselves and our family relationships – permitting love always to heal every wound that has to be healed.
We should not let past pain, hurts, bitterness, resentments, or regrets linger as we will pretend that they do not exist. We should acknowledge the hurts, wounds, and pain, and permit the process of healing to happen.
4. We should let go and forgive.
Every one of us makes mistakes. Every one of us says things or does things that he or she is not supposed to say, or do. However, that does not mean that we are not good people.
It simply means that we are human or that we still learn – to be much better and do better. We have to forgive everything, and let our thoughts, emotions, and feelings go, as they harm our family and us. We should permit love to come and heal our wounds.
5. We should love all of them as they simply are.
Every one of us wants to be accepted and loved just as he or she is. This is also the same for our family. Regardless of the fact if we like our family or we don’t like, it is our family.
The best possible thing that we may do is to learn how to accept and love them just as all of them are, and we should never try to change, fix or control them. With doing this, we are going to be the living example from who they are going to learn how they can accept and love us and never try to change, fix or control us.
6. We should love all of them from a considerable distance.
When there is someone in our family who tries to harm or hurt us in any possible way, we should love him or her, but from a considerable distance.
Also, if we feel that communicating and interacting with him or her can damage us and our relationship with them, the best thing would be to stay aside and love these people from a particular distance. We have to remember that we are a precious, worthy and vulnerable human being, so we deserve others to treat us as such.
7. We should strengthen the relationships with our family by talking with them about our feelings.
Telling the members of our family how much we appreciate and love them would be an excellent way in which we can strengthen our relationships with them and connect with them more meaningfully and profoundly.
That’s why we have to ensure that we tell each family member how much we love, appreciate and respect them or how happy we are because we have them present in our life. People have to hear such things, and we have to tell them.
