Best Tips to Increase Awareness and Maintain a Healthy Relationship

     “Your family and your love must be cultivated like a garden. Time, effort, and imagination must be summoned constantly to keep any relationship flourishing and growing.”
Many, when asked about what makes their world go round, answers, “Money.” It’s a sad reality of life, for they perceive their lives only worth the “Money.” When, no money could buy anyone of us, as a matter of fact. This is why self help books that talks about this are very essential and helpful to those who are having troubles with their relationships.
What really makes the world go round then?
Have you ever given a thought about this very important question? Our answers here would say a lot about how we value our lives and the people in it. When it comes to significant aspect of our lives, it is true and I believe all of you would agree that relationships matters the most.
From the time we are created in our mother’s womb, to the time we die, when all the people we spent our life with, whom we touched and who touched us, reflects “relationship.”
Relationships define the seventh heaven and the burning fires of hell of our lives. It brings out the laughter’s and the tears in our eyes. These relationships that we nourish every single day are the ones who will define us in our dying days.
What makes a healthy relationship?
Isn’t LOVE the most basic component of any relationship? Yes it is. But you must know what LOVE is for you. Love is almost always mistaken to be a feeling. But in fact, it isn’t. It is a commitment, a DECISION. It is when the going gets tough and the tough gets going, and you still hang in there. If love is a feeling, you wouldn’t find yourself staying during hard times.
Building relationships is about loving others and giving them genuine SERVICE. “You can have everything you want in life if you help other people get what they want out of life." You can never expect others to care, if you don’t care.
Once inside a relationship, one step on showing you care is by having an open and honest COMMUNICATION. Whether it is about good things, how you feel, or bad things. This builds trust and confidence between two individuals and will definitely make the relationship stronger. Learn to be sensitive as you express your thoughts and feelings this might help you some more.
One way to start a fruitful relationship is to be FRIENDLY. People hate grumpy ones, they avoid them. Wouldn’t you want to be one of those who people would love to be with? And even if you’re already in a relationship, having the friendship intact will create a stronger bond. SMILE.
A very challenging part of any relationship is the presence or absence of PATIENCE. Not everyone knows this word, nor understands it completely. But no relationship can withstand hardships without this. As crucial as love and commitment, patience plays a big role in settling differences between individuals.
As you are building relationships with people all around you, there is this one aspect of it, that many forgets on including, that is loyalty. It is almost always impossible to have this now a day, for the sole reason that people cannot seem to keep up and stay committed. You might want to consider earning and giving loyalty to those you are with, for this will spell out what kind of relationships and people you have in your life.
What is it to have a common purpose and go through life together with those people you love?
It definitely feels heaven, having to share precious and meaningful moments together, through triumphs and failures, through happiness and sadness, when creating life changing marks in someone else’s life. Having someone with you who values life and relationships, just gives everything a SENSE.
And what is a relationship without FUN? Don’t get too serious! Fun doesn’t mean you’re not taking your relationship seriously, but rather you are giving it a “SPICE” something to look forward to every day. “Taking away the dullness and sadness of life.”
Bitter sweet it may seem, and so many more cards to play, we have to have that mature level of acceptance, that life is not meant to be lived alone. And that life is not just about having relationships, but having a GENUINE AND MEANINGFUL ONE.
All these and more you can learn from a number of self help books. Be open and help yourself understand life and relationships better. Self help books are everywhere, you just have to have the heart to take a look at them.
