You're meant to last, forever.
There are certain traits and habits that define a "good relationship", certain things that assure you that you're doing the right thing and you're on the right path, the path to a long lasting and healthy relationship. I've seen my fair share of ups and downs, and I have no regrets, even from the most traumatic of relationships people still come out with a few lessons, lessons that help them grow as individuals and make them better partners in the future. In this article, I'm going to list down six of the most common signs that will tell you that you're an amazing partner and your relationship is going to last. Let's begin.
6. You're happy to learn, every day
A relationship works best when people accept the fact that they aren't perfect and there's always room for improvement. I used to think I knew everything there was to know about relationships, my girlfriend made me realize how wrong I was, I had a lot to learn and I was happy with that feeling. Relationships are meant to enhance two people, to make them combine their strengths for each other in order to form a happier combined life, people in relationships happily learn from each other without any sign of ego or denial. I'm not perfect, neither are you, but it's our imperfections that make us beautiful and define us. There is no shame in learning from someone you hold very dear to you, it's actually a blessing.
5. You accept your mistakes without hesitation
I used to be a very negative person, I used to never own up to my mistakes because I was someone who thought he was never wrong, I was obviously living in a delusional world and wasn't going to last very long, so I changed a few things about myself, things that were damaging my integrity. There is no shame whatsoever in owning up to your mistakes, it's actually very relieving and impressive. People who beat about the bush and always blame others for their own mistakes are weak people, they're the ones who will never truly be able to love someone because they don't even love themselves enough to accept the truth. There is no shame in saying "I'm sorry" when you do something wrong, like I said earlier, ego should not be a part of your relationship. If you're someone who finds no shame in admitting when you're wrong, you're an amazing partner.
4. You don't punish your partner
This may seem funny or too extreme to some people, but I've seen it happen, it's cruel and sad but it is what it is. I've seen some of the saddest relationships where one person purposely tries to punish the other person with their words, just because they're too frustrated with their own selves and are too afraid and insecure to admit it. Understand something, your partner is not liable or accountable for your past and the pain that came with it. Don't punish your partner because of someone else's mistakes, start life anew with them if you want a long lasting and fulfilling relationship.
