To have a good relationship, you need to be a good partner. These 5 ways Will Teach You More About It

In relationships, we most times focus on our partners and forget that we are also responsible for the growth or decline of the relationship.

It is easier to lay the blame on others than accepting that you have some part to play in whatever the problem might be. Of course, your partner is going to upset you in different ways but they are not the only ones in the relationship.

So, do you want to be a better relationship partner?

  1. Don’t react instantly: Some people react as it happens and this is such a wrong way to approach anything because Anger is one of the most aggressive and damaging emotions of all. It’s okay to have certain differences but please don’t jump to conclusions. Think about it when you’re in a calm state of mind and try to look at things from their point of view. I know it’s always easier said than done but it’s also true that a calmer mind will always come up with a better and more meaningful solution.
  2. Exchange favours: Exchanging favours makes your partner feel like they play an active role in your life and that you really need them. Knowing that someone needs you in their life is honestly one of the most overwhelming feelings ever and this will bring you two emotionally closer and also increase your comfort level around them.
  3. Sleep when you are stressed or tired: This generation is used to a fast-paced life which can be the root cause of stress. When people are stressed they tend to make rash decisions because their mind is tired of thinking about a particular problem and they end up taking out its reaction on their relationship. Sleeping will provide peace and rest to your overworked mind and it can differentiate between right and wrong also help you in making proper decisions.
  4. See it from their perspective: Rather than overreacting, try to maintain your cool in situations where you have the potential to wreck your relationship. You will not necessarily agree with them on everything but what you can do is give it a thought. A good, patient thought before jumping to a conclusion.
  5. Water your side of the grass: The only way the grass can be greener on the other side is if it is watered. Yes, there are little things or in fact, big things that your partner does to annoy you on a regular basis. Understand that it’s okay. They are just human. But instead of constantly counting things that they do wrong, keep a close watch on things you do wrong.
