Nothing good in life comes easy. Happy and healthy relationships are no different, they require a lot of constant work from both sides. This article is going to focus on 25 of the most common things people in happy and healthy relationships DON’T do.
25. They Know It’s Not Easy
People always ask me how I manage being in a healthy and happy relationship for so long and still keep nurturing everyday. It’s not like my relationship is a walk in the park, it’s not always sunshine and rainbows, it’s not always hugs and kisses. Me and my girlfriend go through our fair share of ups and downs, the thing that makes our relationship strong is the fact that we have more ups and we try everyday to make sure there are no downs.
24. They Don’t Rush Their Relationship
People often tend to rush their perfectly happy relationships in hopes of a happier tomorrow. Stop rushing things. Spend every single day as if it were the first day of your relationship. Cherish even the smallest of moments and create memories each day as it goes by. Don’t stress about what’s next, just keep at it and continue moving forward with life as it goes. Live your present with your partner and stop focusing on the future while ignoring the present.
23. They Don’t Expect A Magical Solution
I know people in relationships help each other grow and make each others lives better, but that does not mean that your relationship is the magical answer to everything. Don’t expect your partner to solve all of your problems just as how they should not expect you to solve all of theirs. The key to a healthy and happy relationship is to know when and where you can manage the issue yourself and not to turn to your partner at every sign of trouble. Be supportive and expect support, but learn to support yourself first.
