When there is no effective ground for communication in a relationship, both partners slowly drift apart. After a while, they start feeling invisible to each other; attraction fades away. What was once exciting and energetic has turned sad and gloomy. No more room to share thoughts with each other. Every relationship goes through challenges to strengthen the love both partners have for each other. And not to separate them from the other. No matter how bad the situation may seem, love is always worth fighting for. In order to save your relationship, you must be willing to make some changes.
Take a look at four (4) things to do to save your relationship;
1) Compromise: You must be willing to compromise with your partner if you really want peace to reign in your relationship. It doesn’t matter who is wrong or right. What matters is if you still want to be with them after a fight or misunderstanding. Be willing to compromise with your partner. Let go of your pride and ego and be the first to apologize. Understand that you are apologizing not because you are wrong and your partner is right. It simply means that you would rather still have them in your life than allow pride and ego tear down what’s left of the relationship. Don’t lose your partner because of your inability to compromise with them. Always be willing to compromise with your partner.
2) Be understanding: When you take time to listen and understand your partner, it helps improve your communication with them. People don’t always need advice. Sometimes all they really need is a hand to hold, an ear to listen, and a heart that understands. When you spend less time judging and criticizing your partner and more time trying to understand why they think and feel the way they do, it increases the love and respect they have for you. They begin to see you as a more reliable partner. Which makes them open up completely to you. Always be understanding.
3) Be trustworthy: Everyone hates it when they are being lied to. One lie can taint a million truths. It can make one question the rightness of all the truths that have ever been told to them. Trust takes years to build and only seconds to break. Trust is very vital in ensuring a healthy relationship with your partner. A trustworthy partner is one who can always be relied on. They are responsible for their words and actions. They instill confidence in their partner that they can always be trusted. Without trust in a relationship, you won’t truly respect your partner. A true relationship is when you can tell each other anything and everything; no secrets, no lies. Always be trustworthy.
4) Be consistent: Consistency is everything. No one will want to be in a relationship with someone who is one day here and the next day elsewhere. Someone who is not consistent. An inconsistent partner shows lack of stability. It is very toxic to be in a relationship with an unstable partner. Their words and actions can’t be relied on. They will drain you up both emotionally and mentally making you more insecure. You can’t keep hurting your partner and expect them to keep loving you. At some point, they may just decide that they’ve had enough of your inconsistency in the relationship and walk away. Be consistent with your partner.
