Building Strong Relationships -2
Imagine two people that are attracted to one another.
They spend so much time talking to each other and making each other laugh. The attraction matures into love, and continues to grow.
During the early days of any relationship, couples spend a lot of TIME together. As a result the relationship blooms and flourishes. Spending time with someone may help you discover you are not a good fit for each other.
Whatever you do to attain a level of success in any area of life should be continued to maintain the success you enjoy.
Life gets busy, especially when couples start raising a family or job schedule get really demanding. Making time for one another now becomes something you consciously do.
A relationship that is not nurtured will wither away.
Spending time together is important but is that it?
No, there are so many tips to building strong relationships but I choose to summarize building strong relationship with this analogy.
If you want to rise through the ranks and climb to the top of the career ladder what do you do?
You work hard, you invest in yourself to improve your productivity, you put a lot of effort into your career to make it a success. Exactly the same principle applies to building relationships. Strong relationships are cultivated by people who consciously invest time and effort in their relationships to make it what they want to be.
Make an effort to understand the other person and look for ways to be a blessing to him/her. Don’t always think about what you stand to gain, look for ways to give and add value to the other person’s life. Love always win, choose to take the high road of love and forgiveness.
You may have had a bad experience in life and you hate yourself for it. No matter how much love is shown to you, you have a difficulty in accepting the love. This may have been causing problems in your relationship but you know what? That can change. You can learn to love yourself again.
