ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT BUILDING A LASTING RELATIONSHIP

ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT BUILDING A LASTING RELATIONSHIP By Edidiong Emmanuel

Relationships are very vital parts of human life as a good relationship strengthens all aspects of life – your health, your mind, and your work; but if a relationship is not supportive, it can cause a tremendous drain.
Therefore, it is essential to maintain a healthy relationship. Relationships are created for various purposes and can come into being due to the occurrence of certain events.
Relationships exist in several forms – family, courtship, friendship, formal,…and there are various ways of making such relationship grow stronger and produce positive results.
The aim of this article is to bring to your notice some key elements that will aid you in improving your relationship with others, whether formal or informal, courtship or friendship. Here are some suggestions that will positively improve your relationships;

FIND THE RIGHT PERSON

This is always like a herculean task but it’s very vital in relationship building. Not everyone is compatible with another, some people fail to understand this and end up having relationship clashes.

STUDY HIS CHARACTER

This is one of the essential elements. When you study the character of the person with whom you are having a relationship, you tend to understand how to treat him better and this builds a tighter bond between you.

SPOT YOUR DIFFERENCES AND INTERSECTS

After studying or while studying his character, however, you choose, get his character against yours – spot out your area of difference and what you have in common. This will help you know how to deal with each other. Focus more on your intersects while you try to amend your differences.

WORK AS A TEAM

Every relationship’s purpose can only be carried out effectively if the parties involved understand the reason behind the relationship and work as a team. Relationships work better when you work as a team and not try to prove the weaknesses of others. Working as a team makes the relationship more fun, safer and it can last longer. Remember ‘feeling loved is nature’s antidote to stress’ and this makes both parties feel the need to continue together as they achieve greater results as a team.

PAY ATTENTION TO NON-VERBAL CUES

It is not necessary that someone speaks with words all the time. There are certain signs that can be used to denote someone’s response to our actions. Never overlook such cues as they reduce the chances of misunderstandings…

LISTEN CAREFULLY

Careful listening helps calm the tension during conflicts but exchanging word for word increases tension and can even send the relationship to an early grave. Taking turns to speak makes both parties feel important and valued which strengthens the relationship.

SPEND ON EACH OTHER

Building a relationship takes a lot of sacrifices, dedication and boldness. You must be ready to spend on the other party – money, love, time, gifts…and whatever you can think of. Spending more time together shopping or doing what you like helps you build a tighter bond.

DO NOT BE TOO FRIENDLY WITH YOUR SPOUSE’S PALS

Being too close to the pal’s of your spouse gives your spouse that sense of insecurity and your character can be questioned which acts as a threat to your relationship.

INTRODUCE HUMOUR

Humour makes a relationship more interesting. The more you laugh or joke together, the more secure you feel in each other’s presence, the stronger the bond becomes and the closer you get. Do make sure you are both in the joke to avoid unwelcoming situations. These are just some of the thousands of relationship tips but to the best of my knowledge, I believe that if you introduce these tips into your relationships, you’ll change the negative notion you were having about that relationship.
