Here are some tips on keeping your relationships loving and strong:
A FEW WAYS TO GET CLOSER TO YOUR PARTNER
Listen to them, especially if they are upset. Make eye Contact. Turn off the TV.
Focus on the Positives like when you first met them. Compliment them and don’t take them for granted.
If something isn’t working out, don’t blame your partner, decide what YOU can do to make the situation better.
Spend more time with them. Show they are important to you.
Touch more often. Sleep in the same bed.
Think before you act. Choose to respond positively. Don’t make the other person wrong just so that you can be right.
Don’t expect your partner to take care of all of your needs. Devote some time and energy to meeting some of their needs. But ask for what you need -- don’t expect anyone to mind read. Realize that just like a kid at Christmas, you may not get all that you want.
Remember that good relationships don’t just happen. They take time, commitment and courage to grow and develop. Perfection is NOT the goal, not from you, not from your mate.
Love harder, kiss longer, hug tighter, speak kindly, forgive presently, accept unconditionally, trust fearlessly, smile frequently and give of yourself, wholly! Life is urgent! All that we have is the NOW! Are you in?
