5 Facts About Great Relationships

12:04 PM

Just as life isn’t perfect, intimate relationships aren’t either.  They require effort and compromise.  They require two people to practice patience and presence, and thoughtfully extend themselves for the sake of the other.

Love is not just a feeling, love is an action many actions. Make a room for the true joy of engaging deeply in a great relationship, which holds a powerful, flexible space that widens itself to accomodate the necessary struggles. Here are 5 Facts About Great Relationships:

1. Never force changes.
People can only change themselves.  Instead of trying to change your partner, give them your support and lead by example. Keep in mind that the best way to love someone is not to change them, but instead to help them reveal the greatest version of themselves.

2. A great relationship isn’t needy.
In a great relationship, you love each other more than you need each other. Remember that constant need for attention is exhausting.

3. Even the greatest relationship won’t completely fix YOU.
If you’re not happy with yourself, or comfortable with your own truth when entering a relationship, there’s a good chance you’re not ready for that relationship.  Work on loving yourself first.

4. Accepting "No relationship lasts forever."
People don’t live forever. Appreciate the loving moments and all the little things. Just because something doesn’t last forever, doesn’t mean it wasn’t worth your while.

5. There will be lots of tough conversations.
Every great couple needs to argue (consciously and mindfully) now and then, just to prove that the relationship is strong enough to survive.  

Nothing is this world is more difficult than love. And nothing is more worth it. No relationship is all sunshine. We need to practice conscious and mindful communication. You cannot just give up someone because the situation's not ideal. Great relationships aren't great because they have no problems. They're great because both people are enough about the other person to find a way to make it work.

A healthy relationship doesn't drag you down. It inspires you to be better. Don't wait that your relationship brings you more pain than joy. Free yourself from negativity and give your partner a fair kindness and respect. Be your partner's encourager, ignore unconstructive and hurtful commentary. Control your anger as much as possible; thus you will immediately open the door of solutions.
