Oprah Winfrey said, “Lots of people want to ride with you in the limo. But you want someone who’ll help you catch the bus,” Not everyone we meet is worth being in our life. In fact, it is upon us to find a person who would make our bus ride fun than a limo ride. Once we find that person, it is upon us as to how we can maintain it.
A relationship should be easy, like Eric Berne once said, “Love is nature’s psychotherapy.” Likewise, there are very few common steps for having a very healthy relationship for a long, long time regardless of whether you’re in a 50-day or a 50-year relationship.
- Respect your partner
If a person is asked about the most important thing about a relationship, he or she would say, ‘love’ but honestly, it is ‘respect’. Previously, when people had arranged marriage and they did not get a chance to fall in love, respect was the only key for their successful relationship.
Thus, it is very important for every people to give respect not only to each other but also to each other’s beliefs, ideas and opinions.
- Give (or take) Space
Just because two people are together in the name of love, does not mean they are bound to be with each other or need to communicate with each all the time. Also, every person needs an emotional and physical space from their partner as it provides a sense of independence for both.
So, if your partner is not replying or calling you, let them be, do not start stalking them, or ask their friends.
Ruling someone out because they love Ed Sheeran and don’t appreciate the subtle genius Of Beatles is a bad idea.
You will always not find some whose choices are the same as yours, and it is upon you if you want to accept it or not, and if the person is worth adjusting for, what you even waiting for? Try to give the other person to choose the restaurants or to pick up the movie to watch, this kind of small gestures is all that it takes to have a very happy relationship.
- Take Care of your Own Needs
In the process, of making someone else happy, do not forget about your own self. There are times when a relationship fails due to lack of Self-love. Let yourself go, and the odds are pretty good your relationship is going to go too.
- Love, love and love
Well, we should not forget the main reason for the relationship, that is nothing but love. Dating has become an aimless way to pass the time instead of a purposeful venture with an actual goal: A long term commitment to the person you love. Old school love built a foundation for two people to stand on overtime.
So, wake up and make her a break-fast; play FIFA with him; buy her flower on a random day; cook him his favourite food when he is having a bad day. Notwithstanding the fact, all the suggestions are coming a hopeless romantic who has not been able to be in a relationship for a long time, but people learn from their mistakes and again relationships is a very subject matter and it varies from person to person and a key to having a very successful relationship is to listen to their own self, cause ‘Your Relationship, Your Rule’. At the same time, we cannot forget there are few secrets for having a very healthy relationship which should be kept in mind.
