Things people who are great in relationships have in common
Being in love, feeling loved and knowing that someone loves you is the best feeling ever. It’s a feeling that is unexplainable, a feeling that can’t be described, a feeling that causes your heart to skip a beat, a feeling that causes you to change so you can be a better person. Things people who are great in relationships have in common!
So what does it take to get to this?
Everyone wants a great relationship. A relationship, where there’s give and take, a relationship built on trust and honesty, where there’s compromise and selfishness is put aside, a relationship where the foundation is God, where pride is put aside; a relationship where there’s support and no competition, where’s there’s commitment, respect, honor, value, and appreciation.
It’s not impossible to have a great relationship, the problem is most people have a false perception of what a great relationship looks like, and they want their relationship to look like that of their parents, friends, and those on television, knowing fully well that the relationships on television are not real.
Fact is, there are some traits that people who are very good in relationships have that helped them immensely. These traits make these people really good in relationships.
The differences in their relationships vs other relationships aren’t supernatural. They actually come down to a few very simple factors.
Luckily, you don’t have to be born with them. You can put in the effort to make these traits a part of your personality starting right now.
Here are the 5 things they do below:
1. They let their partner win sometimes
A lot of relationships fall apart due to one basic flaw – two partners always competing with each other – whether it’s board games, or an intellectual argument, or even who can parallel park better, arguments will always seem to crop up in dysfunctional relationships about who’s better at something. And that’s crappy.
2. They’re generous with each other
Relationships are about being generous with each other. They’re about giving to your partner because you want to make them happy, and you genuinely want to give, not because you want them to give back to you at some point.
3. They don’t hang onto grudges
People who are great in relationships recognize that negative emotions aren’t constructive at all. Even if they feel hurt, they don’t want their partner to feel ashamed, embarrassed or guilty.
4. They’re true to themselves
If you’re comfortable enough to be your true self with someone, it’s a pretty safe bet to say that you’ve got an amazing relationship.
5. They don’t live in the past
Assumptions and thoughts are incredibly harmful to a healthy relationship. A true master of relationships knows that the only thing that matters is the present, and they should live only in the day-to-day moment with a person rather than putting the full weight of the past on them.
