If you want to have a loving, long-lasting relationship, there are some factors that you need to focus on a few qualities exclusively. These are trust, honesty, loyalty, excellent communication, and commitment. These elements are the bedrock for a healthy and happy relationship. If a man and woman don’t respect and appreciate each other feelings and the role they play there is anger, sadness, and resentment in a relationship or marriage. Communication between the two people breaks down, the gap between two partners grows, and consequently, the relationship ends.
For some men and women, breakups are extremely hard to deal. Some get over soon and get involved in a new relationship, while for the pain from the breakup is so extreme that they never get over it. They stop dating anyone new, and depression and loneliness creep into their lives. Therefore, it’s crucial that we should have partners who are right for us and complements us. You can’t have a happy relationship if the person you’re dating isn’t right for you.
Folks often say that you’re in a happy relationship because of luck. But, remember that happy relationship doesn't just happen through sheer luck, they are made. If you want to be happy in your relationship, all you need is a sincere intention to establish an amazing and intimate connection with your partner, and follow some simple rules.
First, pay attention to your own happiness and health. Happy relationships exist when each partner feels good about themselves in their own way. He or she knows how to take care of their own physical, mental and emotional health and do so in the right way.
Second, hone your communication skills. It’s difficult to have a healthy relationship is your partner can’t understand your emotions, feelings and your needs. Focus on expressing your emotions and feelings without getting blamed or criticized. This way you will have fewer fights and arguments, and strengthen your emotional connection with your spouse.
Third, learn how to appreciate more. In a successful relationship, appreciation will always triumph criticism. Here, criticism also includes what you think. Thinking negatively will cloud your mind of any positive criticism, and you’ll always find something wrong with your significant other. You’ll always see the bad stuff. On the other hand, if you focus your attention on things that they’re good at, you’ll always see more of the good.
Fourth, reward yourself with what you want, and when you want it. One of the major mistakes most men and women make in relationships is that they sacrifice their own joy and happiness to provide for their partner’s happiness. It will fail in the long-run and eventually, lead to exhaustion and resentment. If you can’t be happy yourself, how can you make others happy?
After all, we all want to be happy in our relationships, fulfill and satisfy the needs of our partners – physically, mentally and emotionally. Honesty is essential for a happy relationship. So, check in with your partner occasionally and find out if the relationship is working for both of you.
