With all that’s going on in the world these days, it’s kinda alarming to notice that large numbers of people are less experienced in real-life relationships. And it becomes more clear when we look around and see the amounts of break-ups and divorces around us. Some of us might have already been in such an experience. somehow, it seems tricky to figure out how to start and maintain a healthy and successful relationship. But why is it that hard?
The ways we’ve thought about and approached relationships have changed profoundly over the past several years. We’ve evolved from a hierarchical and hierarchically determined view of society to a new model whose intention is to see every individual as being equal. We’ve given up on the idea that there’s something unique about “one good person” and started to look for what we share with each other instead. We think about the ways that we communicate with others in a different way, too. With the rise of the internet and social media, relationships have become much more real-time (artificial). There’s a lot more “plugging in” and sharing and commenting which is -in big parts- “anonymously”. In contrast to the old ways of writing a letter, which made you overthink, reconsider, oversleep and refine your words. However, it’s all being done within a new set of definitions and rules, and people have to relearn what it means to be good communicators and how to perceive and understand messages in the first place.
For a successful relationship, you’ll need to learn how to deal with your partner’s (or anyone else’s) anger, jealousy, and mistrust, plus how to make sure you’re still talking and romancing your mate when your kids are ready to fly the coop.
It’s really not easy to make a relationship work, and while the tips for a successful relationship sound pretty sound, you have to remember that they are all essential because your relationship is the foundation upon which everything else you do in life is built. And with a strong foundation, you have a happier, healthier life with your partner.
We can have strong, healthy and successful relationships. The fact is that relationships are extremely complex, and you need to make the most of them. The secret to making this happen? one little shift in the way you look at them. One little shift that might make a huge difference. That little shift that changes everything.
