Over time relationships tend to falter here and there. The excitement of being in a new relationship gives way for the irritations of real life and all that goes with it. Most people assume that this is perfectly normal and typical behavior of relationships, but it doesn’t have to be. What people tend to forget is that you have the power to make your relationships as happy or as miserable as possible. How you live and love is entirely up to you. If you are one of the people who have let life get in the way of love, it is not too late to change.
Many people forget that relationships are also friendships. You don’t spend time with people you don’t like and enjoy, so why be with someone you don’t like any enjoy? The easiest way to improve your relationship is to improve the friendship foundation of it. To do this, spend time doing things together that you both enjoy. Take in a football game or head to an amusement park. Whatever you enjoy doing together, do more of it.
Appreciate One Another
He may act as if though taking out the trash is the equivalent to cleaning the entire house from top to bottom, and that causes you to roll you eyes. You know what, instead of telling him that you do more than he does around the house, give him a hug and tell him you appreciate that he takes out the stinky, gross trash so that you don’t have to. He’ll start wondering what else he can do to make you that happy and affectionate.
Worry About Today
Stop bringing up things you both did in the past and don’t worry about things that haven’t happened yet. Who cares if he took your mom’s side that one time when you were arguing and it’s upset you for the past four years? And why worry that he’ll do it again until he actually does do it again? Worrying does not fix tomorrow, it merely empties today of happiness and strength. Focus on the here and now and you will be much happier.
