Simple but truly needed in a sound relationship which
has a solid foundation are the following elements: CARING: Caring about each other.
RESPECT: Respect for
each other's needs. COMMUNICATION: Communication between
each other. TRUTH: Truth
with each other on all things big and small. COMMITMENT: Commitment to each other
and the relationship you have.
It is very essential in
a relationship to understand your partner and to compromise.
There are times when one feels that 'why
should I be the one who is always adjusting' but always
remember little differences and arguments can be sorted out by
simply listening to one another and finding out problems and
fixing them, than hanging on to your ego's and repenting later
on. Try to keep your relationship good and last
Tips to make sure one's
relationship last and is good:
1.Make sure there are no *major*
areas of incompatibility. Make a list of what's important to
each of you and discuss it to make sure that there are no
major indifferences and inaptness amongst you and your
partner, which can create complications. To keep a
relationship good both people have to care about how their
partner feels and make sure to talk about anything that's
causing either party to feel like their needs aren't being met
and try to fix it. Because that's what breaks relationships
and kills the love that was once there. Letting hurt, anger,
etc grow and take over instead of fixing the problem while
it's small is hazardous to a relationship and must be avoided
before it becomes impossible to mend little hurts.
2. Make a commitment...
Not in the traditional sense to stay together no matter how
bad it gets... you have to be willing to hang in there through
difficult times but I think that both parties must commit 110%
to nurturing and protecting what they have.. to do things that
keep the love you feel alive and strong and to always be
vigilant and nip problems in the bud *before* they get to the
point of harming your relationship.
IMO That's the key to making a relationship last
and stay good.
Make sure you are compatible in
the things you both think are important. Make sure that
both of you have the skills to negotiate conflict without
having to beat each other up with words. Make a commitment
to keep it good and then make it a reality.
