Every relationship goes through vicissitudes, the good times and not-so-good times. Even if a relationship seems to be all-good initially, after a few years it tends to hit rough patches due to numerous reasons. Well, if you follow the following tips, there is quite a possibility that your relationship would not hit the rough patches:
Take out time to spend together
After marriage, a whole mountain of responsibilities falls upon us, especially on females. From taking care of kids and other family members, household chores, to run the family business, partners hardly get time to spend in each other’s company. There is no time to connect and this is the life’s reality.
Mere being in a relationship does not bring that connectivity between partners; they actually need to spend a great deal of time together and that is what makes them connect and make the relationship blissful. A couple can do the errands together, workout together, can take walks, and simply sit back and talk together.
You cannot wait for a day wherein you will get a good deal of time to spend together, in fact both the partners need to find out those special moments everyday and keep their connection alive. In case miles of distance separates both the partners, they can always make the use of modern technology like video chats that make people feel quite near to their loved ones.
Take out time for yourself
To spend time with yourself is as important as it is to spend with your partner. Personal time is the food for the happiness and health of our souls. If you will take care of your needs well then only you will be able to take care of your partner and kids. In your personal time, do things that give you immense joy, be it meditation, dancing, singing, yoga, writing, cooking, or just relaxing. The happier, stronger, and healthier you feel, the same feelings you can transfer to your partner, kids and other family members as well.
Be a team
A relationship takes two individuals to make it wherein both individuals have their own strengths and weaknesses. One partner does something easily whereas the other struggles to do it, and vice versa. The best way to come over weaknesses in a relationship is to bond your strength with your partners, as it helps both partners to emerge as extremely powerful human beings.
Let your partner take up the job you are weak at, and you take the one that is his weakness, work as true teammates. Both the partners should have a faith that they have their partner to catch them whenever they fall. If you follow this mantra in your relationship, nothing can challenge your relation.
Be each other’s best friend
Before being lovers, partners ought to be each other’s best friends. There should be openness, honesty, vulnerability, true love, and unconditional appreciation of the good and bad in a relationship. This best friend relationship enables partners to stay loyal and happy in a relationship with their beloved for lifetime.
In many relationships, not after a very long time of their union, the wife starts cribbing and the husband becomes lazy, and both the partners experience fierce frustrations owing to each other’s imperfections. However, the best way to deal with this tough situation is to be like best friends.
Whenever you are about to blow out on your partner because of some imperfection, like the wet towel left on bed or the shoes lying in the drawing room, think once as to how would you address your best friend in such a situation, and then behave accordingly. When your husband tells you that you do not look good in that dress, no doubt it hurts but try to reply, as you would do to your friend. In addition, do not forget to listen to each other’s grievances just as you do with your best friend.
