“Love is a beautiful thing, but without hard work, relationships fall apart; combining love and some other things is a good recipe for having an incredible and happy relationship”. Below are some traits everyone should add these to love in their relationship and you will notice a drastic improvement in your relationship.
Trust: “Trust is one of the most important things every good relationship needs, without trust, you spend all your time worrying about what your partner says or does and if you’re the one lying, you wonder if they are too; trust makes you feel comfortable sharing your secret hopes and dreams and it gives you the freedom to share your heart with another. Without it, you basically have an untrustworthy friend”.
Compromise: “When you combine two lives together, you can’t expect to continue living your life the exact same way you used to, each of you have your own habits, hobbies, and quirks and it takes compromise on both sides to live happily together, if you’re not willing to make compromises, the relationship will simply dissolve into an endless argument but that’s not to say you have to give up everything, but compromise is necessary”.
Communication: “Many couples fail simply because they don’t communicate, they talk about the little things, they push aside anything that might seem uncomfortable or might lead to a fight; communication is crucial so make time to talk about what’s bothering you even if it causes an argument, at least you’ll get it out in the open and be able to fix it, don’t hold everything in, talk”.
Selflessness: “While you shouldn’t ever stay in a relationship where it’s all take and no give, you should be willing to be selfless, don’t do something for your partner just so you get something in return; happy relationships succeed because both people are selfless”.
Acceptance: “No one is perfect, both you and your partner have flaws and you will annoy each other, that’s part of being in love however, you have to accept that neither one of you is perfect; acceptance allows you to look past simple little flaws and focus on what’s most important – the fact that the two of you are perfect for each other”.
Loyalty: “If you’re not loyal in a relationship, you don’t really have a relationship, loyalty means supporting your partner and standing by their side and it also means not cheating and you shouldn’t be ashamed to stand by your partner”.
Forgiveness: “Both of you are human and will make mistakes while there are some things you might not be able to forgive, the majority of mistakes are forgivable if you’re willing to talk things out and make changes so before placing blame and giving up on a relationship, take the time to talk and forgive each other, relationships can be rocky sometimes, but forgiveness helps you navigate the rockiest roads”.
Observation: “You can’t fix problems or be there for your partner if you aren’t paying attention to the relationship so take the time to observe each other and learn the signs that signal their emotions, pay close attention to your relationship so you can work on it before it’s too late, of course, if you both love each other, you’re probably already extremely attentive”.
