Being in a relationship is about having someone you can spend the rest of your life with. You need to be happy with that person; trust him, love him and work with him whatever is thrown your way. Building a stronger bond is the best way that you can do that. Here are some tips to help you with making that bond as strong as it can be.
A good relationship isn’t 50/50. You both need to be willing to put 110% in. Someone will end up doing most of the work if neither of you is willing to that.
You both need to want to make it work and be happy with the way your life together is going. As you feel one of you losing the willingness, you need to sit down and talk about it.
White lies never hurt anyone, right? Sure but they often lead to deeper lies. You can’t keep anything from your partner and vice versa. Tell him everything and share your thoughts and feelings.
This will help you talk to each other and understand each other more. You’ll also know when something doesn’t seem quite right.
There is no place for pride in a relationship. There’s no point in being prideful in a relationship. This is someone you want to spend the rest of yourself with; if it is constantly a competition is it really worthwhile?
Your pride stops you from opening up and talking. Get it out of the way and be honest with each other.
Communication is essential if you want your relationship to work. You need to talk to each other about the deep stuff and the more trivial matters. Share how your days went and support each other through the tough times.
A lot of marriages break down because of irreconcilable differences but this usually happens due to lack of communications. Don’t be one of those statistics.
Relationships are built on something that you have in common. It could be favourite movies, ideals in life or the fact that you both defeated similar demons in your life.
That someone in common opened up the communication and helped you build trust and understanding. Revisit those things that you have in common to keep building on that strong bond.
Don’t let each other solve your own problems on your own. You need to work together. Relationships are about teamwork. If he has a dilemma in life, he wants you to help him through it and vice versa.
Build that bond stronger by working on the different issues—no matter how small and big—together. You will find that future ones are easier to battle against and that the tougher ones become things you’re ready to do battle against.
