It is as probable for us to fall prey to stress as it is for a rabbit to any wild creature. We allow stress to take over instead of providing resistance in the many ways we can. Be it professional or emotional, things often catch hype and we let them dance around our heads, although this should not be the case when it comes to relationships.

They are obviously adopting the wrong ways to take the relationship along. Having to handle another person’s emotions (along with your own) can be tricky but there are ways one can make a relationship successful and alleviate it. There are ways by which two people can learn to grow instead of falling apart at times of hardship.

1. Believe in your partner:

Everything in a relationship starts with and ends on trust, not blind but one that encourages the partner. If there are misconceptions in a relationship, instead of being judgmental and making hasty decisions, you should first sit down and talk about it like a mature couple. Talking, discussing new ideas and letting them see your trust in their personality is the correct way to turn a hardship into an opportunity. Flowers bloom even after the heaviest of rains.

2. Understand their way of Expression:

If a relationship is at a stressful phase, the man and the woman ought to understand each other’s ways of handling the stress. To men, women seem too emotionally attached and to women, men never seem to care enough. Throw that perspective away and learn that every person has a different way of dealing with stress; that might actually lower the stress.
