Love is patient. When you truly love someone, you will be patient with them when they are slow in catching up. You will exercise patience while they learn; just like a parent raising a child. Your patience is one of the most practical ways you can display your love for your partner. Learn to be patient and forgive their mistakes and shortcomings while they learn to improve on themselves. When you are patient with your partner, it makes them trust you. With time they will get to see you as a reliable confidant. Get to understand that no one is entirely perfect. We all make mistakes and sometimes fall short of doing the right things. When you are always patient with your partner, it helps build your relationship with them.
Take a look at five (5) practical ways to display your love;
1. Be a good communicator.
Communication is essential in ensuring a healthy relationship with your partner. When there is no effective ground for communication, it is difficult to truly understand your partner. You can’t be heard if you are not communicating. Good communication precedes good relationship. When you feel a way about your partner, it is important you let them know instead of keeping it all to yourself or rather assuming they already know. Communication fortifies your relationship. It makes you more conscious of the things your partner likes and dislikes; and also the things you once took for granted. Improve on your communication with your partner. It is one of the most practical ways to display your love.
2. Trust your partner.
Trust is another important quality needed to fortify your relationship with your partner. Without trust in the relationship you both will keep moving in circles and picking up petty fights and arguments between yourselves. It is difficult to love someone you don’t trust. It is a blessing to have someone you can fully trust your secrets and personal affairs with, without the thoughts of ever being betrayed. When you trust your partner without a doubt, they will in turn trust and confide more in you. Completely trusting your partner is a way of letting them know how you really feel about them. It displays the love you have for them.
3. Be consistent.
Consistency is everything. No one will want to be in a relationship with a partner who is not consistent with their feelings for you. They could be one day with you and the next day somewhere else. You can’t say you love someone when you are never there for them when they need you. When you learn to develop a consistent behavior with your partner, it will make them trust and respect you. They will trust every word you say and believe you when you say you are here to stay for real. With time they will begin to rely more on you. They are no better ways to display your love for your partner by always showing up when they need you the most.
4. Learn to forgive.
It is only a child that will hold grudges with someone for an indefinite period without the willingness to resolve them. A heart that truly loves is definitely not made of stone. Forgiveness is the best form of love. When you truly love someone, you willing to forgive when they make a mistake of do something wrong. It takes a strong person to apologize for their wrongs and an even stronger person to forgive. No offense is beyond forgiveness. Forgiveness creates opportunity for improvement. If you always find it hard to forgive your partner when they offend you, they will always find a reason to avoid you. Be willing to forgive your partner when they offend you. It is the best way to display your love for them.
5. Be content.
If you are truly satisfied with your partner, you won’t go around looking for all the things your partner doesn’t have in someone else. You will be completely satisfied with all they have to offer in the relationship. Someone who is truly content with you is ready to stick with you during the ups and downs in the relationship. They won’t leave you when things turn sour. They aren’t moved by what happens in the relationship as long as they get to face them with you. Most people will only stay with you when things are going smooth for you, but will leave you the moment things turns sour. Stay with your partner through thick and thin and they will be convinced that the love will last forever.
