1. Speak your heart
Don’t expect your friend to be a mind reader, you have to share your needs and wants to your friend if you don’t feel them the way they should be. Not expressing want you want and need from your partner and expecting him to understand at the end of the day will only create more frustration in you which eventually will lead to developing sour feelings at the corner of your mind. And at the end, if you do not have the courage to teel your heat and you are afraid of your partner reaction than you should question yourself that why you are in that position at the first place. Meaningful and healthy relations are only created when there is no feeling to hide from your partner.
2. Have Patience
We always tend to come up with the next thing in the talk rather than absorbing the information and feel the other person told you. Let you, partner, to express their feeling without interrupting their talk in the midway by coming up with a response to their emotions. Emotions are the closest thing that the person tells you because he trusts you show the same respect by showing understanding of their emotions. You can politely repeat their feelings to show the sign of understanding their talk.
3. Set healthy boundaries
We all have experienced the abrupt changes of the mood of the person and when the reason is finally revealed than we come to know that it was some of our actions that we did every day that created that change because people ignore some actions of others that make them feel uncomfortable and suddenly it impacts both of the lives . Creating mutually understood boundaries create respect and help understand the expectation in a relationship. Next time you should tell your friend that you don’t like to be called with your nickname and refrain using it rather than exploiting his characters to do the same.
4. Don’t forget to appreciate
We always make mistakes to think that great relationships are built on strong commitments to each other and that is not truly great relationships are only made when you keep on adding small things to the stacks of relation to make stronger bonds. Try to show appreciation for the things that your partner do for you instead of taking out mistakes in the work. Try telling them what does it means to have them in life and take time to say thank to your partner.
5. Enjoy the quality time
Always talking your feeling is not the only way to spend some quality time together. Your best moments together do not have to weave around only verbal translations. Try to find an activity that you can do together it can even be having a cup of coffee together and reading at night. Try something new in life together going out to new places trying out new dishes in different restaurants can be a way to make some good and exciting memories together which can lead on to building great understanding relationships.
6. Understanding Limits
Respect is based on trust and mutual understanding of both people and not on power and control. Disrespectful behavior should never be tolerated, we never give that much of thoughts of this kind of behavior at the beginning of a relationship but sooner or later they start to affect the tone of the relationship and have an impact on our life. If your partner is possessive, insulting, yelling, humiliating or disrespectful in any ways take the note, there is no excuse for abuses. Abuse is the choice that is dependent on the individual and you do not have to be the victim.
7. Give Space and Respect Privacy
In a healthy relationship, you have to give your partner the required space beside yourself, let your partner have time with friends and family and engage in their hobbies. In the beginning, you will want to spend more time together but respect each other and give space to your partner time spent apart brings more value to the time spent together. Support your partner with maintaining friends. Also sharing each and everything with your partner is not mandatory you have to have respect in understanding this fact and do not sabotage your partner emotionally to reveal any secret.
