Four steps to healthier relationships

29 May

I. Learn to pick your fights

This is the make or break in any relationship, let it be with your girlfriends or your siblings. You need to learn which things are big enough to actually put your foot down on and where letting thing pass you by is better for all the parties involved. This works on two tiers. One, if you get pickier on the topics you argue over, you ideally fight less, and any relationship ends up stronger with the lesser fights it has had to face. But secondly, and more importantly, it avoids petty fights. Result? When you do argue over the things that really matter to you, the impact is stronger, letting the other party understand that the topic must be close to your heart if you are fighting over it!

II. Trust
As cliched as this might sound, it stays to be the bedrock of every relationship. Trust doesn’t come easily, it has to be earned-daily, hourly. It has to be worked on without any breaks. Make a conscious effort to never break anyone’s trust, not only to strengthen your relations but also to let the people who matter know their worth in your life! For once it is earned, it leads to relationships worth their while.

III. Don’t take anyone for granted

No relationship in life comes without a potential expiry date, it is on you as to how much you rush a relationship towards it. Therefore, cherish everyone around you knowing that it is only love and genuine caring that will make anyone consider staying longer than they intended to and that any devotion will last only when it is a two way thing. Give and take is, and should be, the basis of every healthy relationship. Forget to keep that balance, and you have lost vital people from your life.
IV. Stay true to your word

At the end of the day what other than your word does anyone around you have from you?
It is the only meter people can use to judge how much they can lean on you, how much they can rely on you! They know you through the honesty of your words, spoil that and you are left with nothing except regret. So, don’t give it out often, give it rarely if you have to but never ever break a promise once given and always, always stay true to your word.

Relationships are hard work, but the more effort you put into them, the more good will come back to you. In this case, you don’t only reap what you sow, but you get in return ten times better than what you had put in!

    And don’t forget #5 – ditch the relationships that are unhealthy. We don’t need negativity and users and bad friends/relatives/lovers in our lives. Just say goodbye. ❤

      Hey girl, I agree a 100% on that hence doing another post on this topic next. If life has taught me one thing this past year, it is this-till you don’t let such people go, you wont have success come your way! They will always hold you back!!
