Successful Relationships Start As Healthy Relationships
Relationships are an important part of life.
The quality of your relationships affects the quality of your life.
Unfortunately, we aren’t taught in school how to manage and grow relationships. And many of us didn’t grow up with positive examples of healthy and successful relationships.
However, it’s an important skill to develop.
Enjoy Healthy And Meaningful Relationships With These Strategies:
1. Avoid establishing romantic relationships to solve a challenge. Too often, relationships are founded on a problem. The issue might be loneliness, a lack of intimacy, the need for support, or the lack of children. When a relationship is based on fixing a difficulty, there will be troubles in the relationship.
• Start a relationship because you’re impressed by the other person and love the idea of spending more time together. Have something that you want to share, rather than starting a relationship because your life is broken in some way.
2. Realize that no one can read your mind. It’s not reasonable to expect anyone else to correctly guess your needs or opinions. If you won’t make your desires known, you should expect to not have them met. Take responsibility for taking the first step in satisfying your wants and needs by sharing them clearly.
• Address issues before you establish too much emotion around them. A quick talk each day can avoid drama in the future.
3. Fight cleanly. If you’re going to argue, do so in a way that doesn’t create additional challenges. If you say, “I don’t like it when you leave your wet towel on the bathroom floor. Someone could trip on it, and the towel gets a moldy smell. It can’t dry if it’s on the floor,” you’ll have better results than you will by saying, “Why are you such a slob?”
• Address behaviors instead of attacking the other person.
Keeping things clean during a disagreement is much easier to do when calm. Creating a cal frame of mind can easily be achieved with a quick meditation sessions. Meditation can even be performed by more than one person at once which makes it a great tool for couples who need a moment of peace. Click below to get a great meditation as a free gift.
