If you’re wondering how to make a relationship last, you are most likely in the stage of breaking up or you or your partner are considering it. Every relationship sooner or later encounters these problems and they are in reality tests that check to see how strong your love is.
Sometimes they can be good for you because if it isn’t meant to happen, you or your partner will let you know, but other times, times of conflict between couples and how strongly they fight to preserve it is a test of how strong their love is. There are different ways you can make a relationship last and here are 3 powerful ones that you can use:
1. Talk to your partner. A lot of conflicts between couples let alone people occur because of the lack of communication. As time goes on and both partners get used to each others routines, their love dies out, their intimacy also dissolves and slowly they talk less and less and this creates a silent distance among them.
As time goes on, this silence gathers up and explodes and this is usually common in sudden fights or conflicts over the most ridiculous things. These things are in fact manifested emotions that gather up from the lack of communication. So how do you communicate?
Well a good way to do this is to find something you both like to talk about or better yet do. For example, you can go on a trip, or on a date to a place you like, or even reminisce about the past and how good times were. These things usually bring out the intimacy and love that once was and re-ignites the flame in your relationship.
2. Don’t be afraid to speak your mind. Although this does relate to communication, a lot of times people purposely allow themselves to ignore what’s going on. When a relationship is in danger, at least one of you will sense it. It’s at those times you have to do something about it. It’s very important to speak your mind and talk from the heart. If your partner is hurting you or you have a concern related or even unrelated to your relationship that you want to talk about, do it.
These things help build trust and love between two people and the more you do it, the better it is. Just make sure you don’t overdo it because too much of something good can be bad for you or it can get annoying and repetitive. Make sure the problems you talk about are serious and not just simple everyday problems with simple solutions. Talk about family problems, personal problems, concerns and make your partner feels important, that they feel you trust their opinion and are important to them.
3. Break up. Well this is usually the last thing you want to do, but sometimes the best make up’s happen because of break up’s and i’m not trying to sound snide. Break up’s usually help create “personal space” between people to re-think their relationships with one another.
