In a relationship? Things getting a little rough? Things can get a little complex at times. Never give up! Stay with the program. Make your relationship a lifetime commitment. Don’t weasel out! Sticking with it, is easier than beginning again.
Never stop. We often get so wrapped up in our everyday experiences that we forget that our relationship comes first. It does, you know. Make it a habit to work together on your relationship. When you become discouraged, seek out someone in your support system, perhaps a friend whom you “know” will be your encourager.
Perhaps it’s time time to re-imagine your relationship. Begin to think of it as you want it to be. Let go of tour resentments and begin again.
• Never stop doing the things that brought you together in the first place.
• Kiss hello before doing anything else when you get home, then give each other some space for a little while to ease into being home and being together again. Kiss good-bye when you leave.
• More “I love you”s are better than fewer.
• Be more spontaneous in demonstrating your love.
• Never allow yourself to become bored with each other. That may take some effort if you’ve slowed down on giving it your best.
Stick with it and your partner will stick with you. Catch your partner doing something right and acknowledge them for it. Play together. Learn to have fun together again. You both must be willing to bring your best to the relationship… working together. Positive repetition builds your relationship reputation. Become known to your partner as someone who is consistent with their best efforts; someone with commitment, perseverance and dedication to serving the relationship. You must demonstrate your commitment.
You have to wake up every day and “choose” the relationship all over again. Choose what you truly want and need in order to achieve the loving, caring, committed, passionate, fulfilling relationship that you truly desire. Coming and being together is a beginning. Keeping together is a progress that takes time and steadfast commitment.
We all make mistakes. Never stumble over something that is behind you. Forgive and let it go!
“You are here to learn how to be truly happy, to become your best self. And it is attainable. But only you can make that happen.” ~ Maria Shriver
Stay present. Recommit to really “be” in the relationship. There is a way out of your unhappiness. It’s simple. You say you love your partner… now stand up for that Love! Don’t walk away with without giving it your best! That’s the cowards way out.
