How To Nurture A Relationship

A relationship is the foundation of something beautiful. It is an opportunity through which two people who love each other can come closer to each other and can grow together.

The following article will tell you the secrets of nurturing your relationship.

The Secret Of Any Relationship

This is by far the most important advice; anyone will ever give you. “Communicate – Communicate – Communicate.”

Express yourself. Talk about your interests, your concerns, your aims. You may be a little private but think that this is relationship. You have to give some input.

Men, generally don’t share as much as women. If you partner has the ability to share less, support him, boost his confidence and accept that he’s trying his best.

Self-Awareness And Small Gestures

Self-awareness is the ability of awareness of one’s own self. Knowing how you feel and what is happening around you?

When you know yourself, you can then work towards small gestures which may brighten up the day of your partner.

Surprise your partner in crime. Cook something, bring a gift, play a game, read a book together, talk about life lessons you learnt or any absurd work experience, ANYTHING. Know about the hobbies and interests of your partner.

When you’ll go an extra mile, the other person will automatically sense that this is the start of something beautiful. Even if you are 50 years old and have spent 20 years together, little gestures still count.

Willingness To Work Through Thick And Thin

Realize your partner that your relationship will not always going to be about rainbows and sunshine. Hard times will surely come but you both won’t give up. Instead, you’ll help each other and make your relationship survive.

Be Responsible

Some people automatically have a “blaming” attitude. They believe the other person should do this, do that and take care of them inside any relationship.

This is wrong. You have to be responsible for your actions. Communicate the concerns with your partner in effective language. Define the dos and don’ts.

If you don’t like any habit of your partner in particular, try developing the habit. Don’t frustrate or give up that easily. Take help from internet, consult friends and family members and watch YouTube tutorials. ‘Where there’s a will, there’s a way”

Taking A Stand

Some people develop a type of Stockholm Syndrome. They believe their partner can even hurt them. They themselves don’t matter, only thing that matters is the happiness of their partner.

This is wrong on so many levels. A relationship is about love and growth. Not manipulation. If you are too kind and don’t speak up, you are just destroying yourself in the longer run.

While thinking the other person is special, you forgot your own worth. You forgot that equally, you yourself, are special in every way.

May be in your past you were a victim of bullying or aggressive parenthood, but hey! You are an adult now. Don’t let anyone treat you any less than you deserve. Practice your speech in front of a mirror and talk with your close friends. They can help you.
