19 Things You Should Do In Your Relationship To Keep It Strong As Ever!
By- Shreya Sharma
We all want people in our life, be it our family, friends, best friend or soul mate. And to keep these people in our life, we have to constantly make efforts. Every person plays an important role in your life. It is up to us we want in our life as how, and that is how a new relationship forms. It is all up to you how you treat your relationship and people in that. That is why few relations are so close to our heart because we put in our most efforts to keep them going. Here are 19 things you should do in your relationship to keep it strong as ever.
Treat people the same way you want to be treated
If you do not respect people, do not expect respect from them. When you have respect for people, you end up having the best relationships. Give people the same respect and love that you want to receive from people to make your relationship with them stronger.
Accept people for who they are
Do not get into a relationship if you aim to change the person and customize them according to you. It is being mean to try someone to change for you. There is no point to be in a relationship if you want to change the person. When you love the person with all your heart, nothing will stop you from loving them for who they are.
Do not try to influence the decision of people you love
If they love you and value your decision, it does not mean you have the power to force your decision on them. Your thinking is totally different than them. Your decision can spoil their life, so do not hurt someone you love by forcing your decisions.
You have to leave people behind
As we grow, we leave people behind. It is tough and you miss them, but you have to leave people who were once important. You have to realize that they have nothing to do with your life. Brace yourself and learn to leave people behind.
Be a good listener
The way sometimes you need someone to listen to you, the same way others too want that. Sometimes it is better to listen to others without giving inputs and advice to make them feel better.
Give people a chance
Everyone has had a bad story in life, but they move on and so should you. Get along with them, share your stories and give them a chance to make new stories with you. You never know how important they can become in your life.
Celebrate other’s achievements
Do not be the one who cannot be happy for others. It is hard to be happy for someone when you are facing failure but if you completely ignore their happiness; do not expect them to be happy for your success. Learn to accept other’s happiness.
Be away from negative toxic people
You might feel superior being with the people who are not as smart as you are. But think of the people from whom you can learn a lot. Try to be with people who are smarter than you, so that you can learn from them and who have positive vibes with them, so that you can learn to love your life.
Do not make hurtful comments and gestures
Remember karma “what goes around, comes around”. Be nice to people and this will take you the long way in relationship and life.
Do not change yourself for anyone or anything
Being your own self is your USP; do not shed that USP for someone else. If people cannot accept you for who you are, they are not worth to be with you. Be with people who accept you for who you are, be it weird, stupid, embarrassing or anything. Change only for yourself and not for others.
Love and respect yourself, only then others will love you. When you know you deserve all the happiness, people can try to keep you happy.
Be kind and respectful towards people
People may be rude, but you still need to be kind and respectful towards them. You will know that you did the right thing in the relationship anyway. And you will have a sound sleep without any regrets.
Try to make people you love feel special
Make efforts to show your love for the people who are important to you. They will always love your gesture and understand how much you value them.
Having silly arguments can turn ugly and later you may realize how stupid you were to argue over that thing. You are not always right and the other person is not always wrong.
Learn to forgive and forget
Holding on to your past will never help you. However horrible it was, it is in past and it should not affect your present. Instead of crying about something that happened in past, meet new people and make new memories and make your present worth living. Learn to forgive and forget.
However difficult it is, always tell the truth
Every relationship is based on trust and once it is lost, a relationship crumbles down. Lying to the person you love will hurt you both. Temporary arguments can result in permanent loss. Being honest can help you save people and relationship in your life.
Say what you mean
Tell people how much they mean to you instead of expecting from them to understand it on your own. Say things that you truly believe in. When you make false promises, it only hurts you and the other person. Always say what you mean and you will hurt fewer people.
Make efforts to keep your real friends in your life
True friends are difficult to find and they love you just like your family and boyfriend. The friends who come back to you no matter what, treat you the same way and never take you for granted, those are keepers. Pay attention towards them because it’s not easy to find such friends in life. In fact, it’s the toughest thing on earth.
To make your relationship strong, you need, to be honest. When you are loyal, your relationship will work under any circumstances.
