Making relationships work for you will require some efforts. If you are listening to what the experts say, some of the strategies that they teach are just common sense. They are good in putting things in a right perspective and organized manner, and explaining them in words. They know how to express themselves well, and the examples given are appropriate and very easy to follow.
The common sense concepts are explained in a way to make couples “understand them” with ease. They teach you what to expect and what to give to the other person to make a relationship works. In fact, it is the best lesson that someone can ever receive from a love expert.
1) When a relationship goes on after some time, it is very easy for the other party to take things for granted. You don’t thank your partner as much, or do nice things, or nurture them as often comparing to when the love has just started. Sometimes, it is not that we want to behave in this way, it is either we forget or think that there is always time to do it later. If your relationship gets in to a crisis and ended and managed to recover back, don’t ever make this mistake again as the experts deem it to be a key ingredient to sustain a healthy relationship.
2) Another good learning from the experts is to do the things that the partner appreciates. It is another common sense concept that most people overlook. It can be practiced at any situation to your loved ones, but it is even more important to do when you’ve gotten back again after a bad patch or breakup.
While helping the other party to do what he or she wants, it doesn’t mean that you will not consider own priorities. However, doing the things that appealed them will show your care and love. If you really feel happy when your other half helps washing your car, then by helping them back to wash dishes or do some housework will definitely make them feel loved and happy.
3) Everyone has different way to enjoy how they want to be loved. He or she might like romantic gestures, or want to hear their partner mention “ love ya” often. You need to continue to do those things that are special to them even though you don’t feel they are important to you. We always assume that everybody has the same response to a certain things. But, do you and your partner like to eat the exact same food? So, focus to do the things that they like. As long as you keep reminding yourself to do it, in fact, it is not that difficult to do.
4) Another common mistake that couples often fail to notice is lack of respect. I’m sure in your heart you do respect them, but do you show it regularly? Do you repeatedly take them for granted and not return them with any appreciation or loving gestures?
Very often your loved one bears the brunt in your worst days. You keep them waiting when you are late for something and don’t offer enough apologies. Sometimes, you may accidentally be less considerate and hurt them, and you forget to say sorry.
Take a lesson on what makes a relationship to work. Ask yourself honestly if you are treating them well with respect. Or, do you treat your co-workers more respect than your partner?
