Being in a happy and healthy relationship means supporting each other and always wanting the best for one another. The butterflies in your stomach come and go, and regardless of how intense they become, feelings alone don’t determine the happiness of your relationship. As long as you keep the romance alive and make ways to make the other happy, your relationship will surely last. Take care of your relationship as if it were an individual being.
It requires forgiveness and willingness to look past the rough roads in your relationship to make it work. Make sure your perspective of a relationship is realistic and not solely grounded on transient feelings. When your partner is wrong, you stick by his side no matter what. But of course, another way to show your loyalty is to tell them where they went wrong so they can improve and do better.
As scary as being at your breaking point may be, make a conscious effort not to be easily provoked. Remember, the key to winning is to stay calm and listen to your mind. When facing a critical point in your relationship, how you react defines the outcome. Whether your relationship with your family or friends works out or not depends on you, not on anybody else. So, if what you want is to sort out all the obstacles and not to lose something you treasure deeply, don’t let your emotions get the best of you. Pride is the worst enemy that you can’t easily shrug off your back.
Healthy relationships are formed not because both persons in it are good-natured and perfect. They are created because two people chose to work it out despite the odds. All relationships have series of challenges to go through, no exemption. They have their ups and downs. It takes intention, compromise, love, and commitment to take care of your relationship.
When you take risks, you don’t always get out of it on the right side of the coin. But what makes it so special is the possibility of experiencing something truly extraordinary that would never happen if you hide in your shell. This is why only very few people ever witness their highest potential in themselves because they’re the only ones who are willing to wade in the dirt to see it.
Playing it safe may decrease the chances of your failing but so will your chance of succeeding even higher than you had before. When you look back to your life, it’s better to remember the times when you stepped out of your comfort zone than playing it safe and boring. Sometimes, you need to take a leap of faith. Sometimes, you need to believe that life isn’t always coming to get you. Life is a juxtapose, and at the right time, you may be on the right side of things.
Conflict is inevitable, even if you make it your life’s goal to please everyone you meet. There will always come a time when we’re made to talk about a problem that we wished the other person would just forget. When this time comes, you have to be mentally and emotionally prepared for what you might receive and what you might accidentally say with your bottled emotions.
Being a confrontational type of person doesn’t necessarily mean you are a negative person who’s always looking to argue. It reflects how you conduct yourself around people with differing views. Being confrontational means you actively prioritize your mental well-being by looking out for yourself. When you confront someone, that courage to go face to face with that person speaks about what you tolerate and what you don’t anymore (especially when it’s triggered by your past).
