Ways to keep your relationship strong and healthy.

I’d like to share some tips that I’ve learned, both from personal experience and from friends, to help maintain a healthy and strong relationship. Relationships can be challenging, and even the best ones have their ups and downs. Emotions can be triggered easily, and it’s important to be mindful of each other’s feelings. Here are some tips that I think might help.

The first rule is:-
Never talk about breakups;- Talking about a potential breakup is a very delicate and sensitive topic.  I’d advise against bringing it up unless there are very specific circumstances where it’s necessary to address the issue directly. Instead, I think it’s better to focus on the strengths of the relationship and the positive aspects of your connection with your partner.  This creates a more positive and supportive environment, which is much healthier for the relationship in the long run than talking about breakups.

Don’t say you’re okay when you are not.

Don’t say you’re okay when you’re not” is definitely solid advice in a relationship.  Open, minded and honest communication is key to maintaining a healthy connection with your partner. If something is bothering you or you’re feeling upset, it’s important to share that with your partner in a respectful and constructive way. Saying “I’m okay” when you’re not can lead to resentment and a disconnection in the relationship. It also prevents your partner from having the opportunity to understand and support you, which is an essential part of a strong and healthy relationship.

When you say sorry you have to mean it.
 Saying “sorry” without meaning it can be very damaging to a relationship. It can cause the other person to feel like their feelings and experiences are being dismissed or minimized, which can breed resentment and mistrust. If you make a mistake or hurt your partner in some way, it’s essential to take responsibility for your actions and truly apologize. This means acknowledging what you did wrong, expressing genuine regret, and committing to doing better in the future. A sincere apology can go a long way in repairing damage and rebuilding trust in a relationship.

Forget about your pride and ego.
Having these can be a huge obstacle in a relationship because they often prevent people from being honest, vulnerable, and empathetic. To maintain a strong and healthy connection with your partner, it’s important to prioritize the relationship above your own ego. This means being willing to compromise, listen to your partner’s perspective, and admit when you’re wrong. It also means putting aside your need to be right or to have things go your way all the time.

Don’t ever compare your past with your present.
Most people tends to compare their past relationship with exes with their present boyfriend once you start making your some instances like that, you are creating room for doubt.

Give your partner space.
We enjoy each other company doesn’t mean there shouldn’t be some space, you should give them their personal space most time. They might try to say it to you most times and might not know how to table it but ensure you give them sometime they can use to reflect themselves and enjoy their space.

Recognize that all relationships have their ups and downs.
No relationship has been perfect, there are ups and down and we tend to forget that we all humans and are bound to make mistake, we all thought it would be going smoothly and fine but it doesn’t work like that. There would be sometimes you feel loved, you quarrel, have misunderstanding when all those things are happening don’t feel like there isn’t love anymore find ways to settle.

Resolve all arguments togethers.
Resolving all arguments together is an important aspect of maintaining a healthy relationship. Arguments are inevitable in any relationship, but they don’t have to be destructive. In fact, if handled properly, they can even strengthen your bond. Instead of getting caught up in blame and accusation, focus on finding a solution that works for both of you. This means actively listening to each other’s perspectives, validating your partner’s feelings, and seeking to understand the root cause of the disagreement.

Make your partner a priority.
Strong and healthy relationship requires effort, dedication, and mutual respect. This means putting your partner’s needs and feelings at the forefront and making an active effort to show them that they matter to you. Which includes making out quality time for each other and giving them the attention when it requires.

Don’t argue over money.
Money can be a touchy subject in any relationship.  Rather than arguing over money, it’s important to have an open and honest conversation about finances. Remember, money is just a tool for achieving your shared goals. Don’t let it become a source of conflict in your relationship.

Share your thoughts with each other.
If you have any thing in mind share with your partner and don’t keep or hide it. Express your mind without holding anything back.

Focus on the positive.
It’s easy to get caught up in the negative aspects of a relationship and forget about all the good things that make you love and appreciate your partner. Instead of dwelling on the things that irritate or frustrate you, try to actively look for and acknowledge the positive qualities in your partner.

Respect each other when arguing.
Don’t say mean words to each other when angry, you can always reconcile but those words can never change because it been said already and you can’t pack it back, that why it advisable when you both are angry, you should give room for the other person to finish talking.

Set goals as a couple.
Make plans and set realistic goals, where you want to be in the next couple of years. Ask questions like, What you intend to achieve together in the next couple of years? How can you go grow your incomes? and so on.

Lastly trust, support and be honest with each other.
