Relationships should never be one-sided. There is no such thing as a successful relationship where one person simply gets rid of another. Relations must always have an image of reciprocity in all aspects of its existence. There is no room for selfishness in a truly loving relationship. People in relationships are forced to rethink their lives and make necessary adjustments to accommodate another person in their life. In a relationship, you must be willing to share more than your love. You should be able to share your time, attention and thoughts with your partner without holding back.
But there is no denying that we are all different people with different personalities. Not all of us are as willing to give as others. Some of us are passive and we don't really ask in relationships anymore. This is simply the natural state of life. However, if there is an imbalance about how much a person cares in a relationship, it could be a source of a potential conflict. Therefore, it should always be in the interest of all couples to always be open about their feelings with each other. They should always be willing to give as much as possible to their partner when they return. When there is balance in the relationship, there is harmony.
This is why if you find yourself pulling short straws in a relationship, you should know it's okay to ask more of your partner. You must be able to create a balance in the relationship if you can continue to love and trust each other. You should be there for each other as much as possible. You cannot afford to wait for the expectations you have set for each other. This is why if you feel like you are missing out on certain aspects of the relationship, you shouldn't be afraid to talk about it and talk about it.
Here are some things you shouldn't be afraid of in a relationship.
Time is the most sought after livelihood. It's the only thing that money just can't buy. It's the only thing in the world we want more of, but we just can't get it. Therefore, time is of the essence in relationships. When you offer your time to your partner, let your partner know how important the relationship is to you. Time is something that was once shared and could never be returned. Time is just something you would reserve for those who mean the most to you.
If your partner cannot understand you at your weakest and most vulnerable points, who can? If you are in a relationship, you should be able to act as a team. You have to be there for each other, even in good times and bad. You must act as an extension of each other's being. You both have to take us against the world mindset. You should practice maximum patience and understanding with each other at all times.
Relationships are about company. The thing that separates romantic company from casual company is the level and consistency of attention it gives a person. As a loving couple, you should be able to give each other as much attention as you need. You must create safe spaces to communicate with each other and express someone's emotions. You should even serve as each other's work bags when needed. When your partner wants to say something, you should always be willing to listen.
Feelings and emotions are incredibly complex phenomena. Sometimes when you get too excited people will write you down as irrational or stupid. This is where your partner should go. If your feelings and emotions make you unreasonable, your partner should be there. You must have someone to share your overwhelming emotions with. You cannot afford to treat them yourself.
Relationships should never be in a constant routine. To keep the spark of a relationship alive, the couples involved must always learn to appreciate the simplicity of their daily lives, but they must also be willing to explore together. Ifts should always be willing to go beyond their comfort zones to discover more of the world and more of who they really are.
Finally commitment. It's okay to ask for commitment from your partner at any time. Nothing good is ever given in life. Everything worth doing should always be fought. If you want this love to succeed, then the both of you need to commit to it at all times.
