There are three important things to know
Make sure that you know that you are in a relationship for the right reasons. Is it because you want to get married or settle down? Whatever the reasons, make sure that you are mindful and cognizant of them. Recognize that it takes two people to make a relationship succeed. Most people get into relationships thinking that they are single-minded and only love one person, while others think that they are single-minded and only love one thing. Take time to figure out what’s really going on in your relationship. Like I tell my clients, the greatest weapon you can use in a relationship is your head, and the second greatest is your heart. Both of these are critical to a successful and long-lasting relationship.
Give and take Always keep your eyes open for signs Emotional intimacy According to psychotherapist, writer, and performer Alison Smith, one of the things that can make or break a relationship is whether the parties in the relationship have what she describes as “a rich, deep, and enduring emotional life.” We all want to have a long-lasting relationship, and as our relationship with our phones grows closer and closer, it seems only natural that we may start to feel a need to connect with the other person. But how do you really know if you can connect with someone? The answer is, you can’t.
Keep your sense of humor
One of the surest ways to lose yourself in a relationship is to constantly worry about how it’s going to turn out. Remember, every day is a new chance to try again, even if it feels like your partner is never going to change. On the other hand, if you always hold on to the fear that your relationship will never work, that will be your permanent state of mind. The best way to get yourself out of this mental state is to make your relationship a series of opportunities for growth. You’ll be amazed at how quickly your outlook changes. Keep your communication open If you’re really dedicated to your relationship, the moment you’re feeling particularly insecure about something you’re doing or the way your partner is treating you, you’ll be better off communicating your concerns.
