First Off "Happy New Year" peeps. I hope you had an awesome 2018 and wish you will have even more amazing 2019. This year I wanted to start it all with love and relationships. The most asked about topic on my blog. "Relationship Goals". Now , I ain't guru in this topic neither am I a professional , But I am a constant learner and I apply all that I learn into my life. Nobody can be a better judge of your relationships other than you. So I was trying to be the better judge and a critic about relationship in my life. I will be talking about nurturing the relationship with potential partner - Husband/Boyfriend/Companion.
A relationship cannot survive on its own. It has to be nurtured constantly creating a mutual connection , a deep loving bond on constant basis. For that, it is very important that you do not take your partner for granted. Below are few tips that will help nurture your relationship with your partner when inculcated into your lifestyle.
1. Communicate Your Thoughts , Ideas and Feelings.
Always remember that you two are two different individuals and the other cannot decode what you are exactly feeling at this point without you communicating it or expressing it. Without a constant honest communication a relationship cannot be nurtured. The more you express or communicate the more closer you will get each time.
2. Support , Validation and Compliments.
These three components create a very strong bond between two individuals , sometimes may it be with friends. Support - emotional and mental support disposal whenever your partner needs it. Not everybody can handle stress all by themselves , they might need to vent it out. Lend your shoulder at these highly stressful times for your partner. Do not think that you should give them their space at emotional downtime , that is a hypothetical assumption. Your partner needs you at that time. Validation - When your partner does something special for you , validate it. It lifts each other up. Compliments - Who doesn't love compliments?. Compliments create a chemical reaction , they trigger the reward centers in your brain and release happy hormones especially from someone close to you.
3. Admitting Your Mistakes and Talking About Them.
In a relationship , all you need is acceptance. You should be able to accept your mistakes and your partner's mistakes. Accepting , talking about and letting go off your partner's mistakes will change or turn your relationship into a joyful one and that way you keep less baggage.
4. A Mutual Desire To Experiment.
It is quite important that this word "mutual" resonate in a relationship. You guys should be able to share a mutual desire of thinking outside the box. With the kind of brand and event commitments that I take , they interfere with our routine and we both have pledged to ourselves that we would break the routine whenever needed and go there get it full speed , get back to the routine and maintain the equilibrium. It is very important that you align your thoughts and actions with your partner's.
5. Love , Romance and Intimacy.
They are like the pillars in a relationship. There has to be a desire to be together as a couple. Do not take these things for granted. Try to keep the spark fresh every time. Love your partner with some more every time. Do not let our lifestyle or work routine saturate the bond. You need to always find ways to rekindle your relationship. Surprise each other at very least expected times.
Alright peeps , that is the content for the start of 2019. I am gearing up for more new ones . Let us all hope that 2019 will be a power packed and love filled year for you guys and for me. Thanks for reading me here.
