Love relationship is a delicate thing indeed. It is like holding an egg. If you apply too much of pressure while holding the egg, it will break in your hand. If you hold it too lightly it may just fall down and break too but if it is rightly held, it can be in your hand as long as you want.
Thus, maintaining a happy and successful relationship depends to how we handle it and it starts with us clearly understanding the purpose of having the relationship in the first place.
What is the purpose of your relationship? Why did both of you agreed to be together? Surely it must be because of love.
In my case for example, if I find myself having misunderstanding with my wife, I will remind myself that I might never get a better person than her. I remember all the good side of her. This gives me reasons to adjust myself and work towards our reasons to be together.
Relationship is about understanding. Just because we have a misunderstanding, we should not give up on it and believe the relationship will never work.
Some people believe they can have a better relationship with someone and so tend to easily give up on their relationship if they have problems. They are very quick to separate or divorce. The reason for this is because of lack of love.
The truth is, people are always looking for perfect relationship. What if the next person you are with is worst than now? Many people treat relationship like gambling. They gamble on it wishing they will someday end up in a perfect relationship. That is an illusion.
There is no such thing you will suddenly find a perfect relationship. We create relationships and we make the relationships perfect by knowing the ways and applying it in the relationship.
If you love your partner, you will do everything to work things out. It begins by accepting the fact that our ways may not be the best ways for the relationship. Think about what both of you can do together. What are the ways both of you can live with together. Work from this angle.
Frankly, any relationship can be smooth if those involved in the relationship knows their role. Yes, we all have a role to play in our relationship with someone. As a husband what is your role? As a wife, what is your role? As a dad or mom, what is your role towards your child?
When you have a role like that, you become accountable. It means people are counting on you. Can they count on you? This is where responsibility comes in. If you know your responsibility and perform it, how can things go wrong? Both must know the role clearly in their head and heart. If you have love in your heart, you will not feel forced to perform this role. You will do it gladly because you love it.
Love is the key to happy relationship. Do you love your partner? Well then, what are you willing to give up for it? Love is an act sacrifice.
