We must understand that any relationship is a two-way communication and can’t survive without a positive response from the other partner. Like clapping it needs two hands to strike a good result. Here are six tips to keep your relationship up and running to a zestful life.
1. SPARE TIME FOR EACH OTHER
The most valuable ingredient in a relationship is to spend some quality time with each other almost everyday. Without it your relationship will not be able to survive for long. Save at least half an hour daily, and at least one full day in a week or fortnight when the two of you spend time together- just two of you. No interruption please.
2. SHOW DEPENDENCE
For a happy and healthy survival male and female both depend on each other. One is incomplete without the other. So tell and show your partner how much you need him/her. Without him/her life will be really very difficult. It will create a feeling of satisfaction in your partner.
3. IMPORTANCE OF GOOD LISTENING
Listen to your partner properly even if you feel boredom. It is necessary for a good relationship. Encourage him/her to express freely, by showing appreciation whenever needed. Helping a partner to open up without hesitation always helps to keep relationship healthy.
4. DEVELOP FRIENDLINESS
Good husband-wife or lovers are good friends first. Therefore try to develop or sustain friendship by doing many things together – shopping, cooking, washing, gardening, watching TV etc. It will cement your relationship further, giving you joy and contentment.
5. EMBRACE WEAKNESSES
Never attack any weakness of your partner. All of us have weaknesses. Accept the weaknesses of your partner. Help him/her with love to overcome a weakness, iff needed. Repeated criticism spoils the charm of a relationship.
6. SHOW RESENTMENT
Now and then you need to come out of your self-control and show hidden angers or resentments. Repressing annoying feelings or anger always disturbs the natural harmony of a relationship. Express your problem and ask for a solution. Occasional tiffs and quarrels are good to keep a relationship strong and exciting. But, beware of an overdose.
