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.
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.
Everyone dreams to be in a healthy and long-term relationship until the difficult days come. It takes a lot of hard work and patience for a relationship to work and maintain long-term. Unfortunately, not everyone is willing to sacrifice for the person they love. Not everyone is ready to compromise when dilemmas come out of nowhere. It seems that everybody wants the pretty side of love until they face the truth that it isn’t pretty at all. Nowadays, people see a long-term relationship as a luxury or a privilege because not everybody can maintain a relationship for years, or possibly until marriage. As sad as this sounds, this is reality.
