When you eat some food and find yourself wondering if it’s healthy for you or not, it shows your genuine care and interest towards maintaining a safe and sound health, coming from good diet. That’s all in your hand; the better the diet, the better your health, right?
But there’s another essential factor in your life which you just as easily hold the key to for keeping it safe and sound. And that’s relationships. They too can be healthy if only what you and your significant other have assures your relationship is doing both of you good, individually as well as collectively.
So there’re certain factors you need to evaluate to ensure if the relationship you have with your partner will last forever no matter how long that forever might be or if it’s just another grain of sand that will fall away from your grasp in a matter of time. Look at these few basic yet crucial factors here to know this and if they’re present, your relationship is a resilient one.
If not, it’ll just shrivel away and leave you and your partner on no solid ground.
There is faith
Your partner believes in you even when you lose all faith in yourself. You know them completely as a person, inside out and acknowledge what they lack yet you do not talk about them behind their back to your family and friends.
You forget who you are so they bring you back to existence by reminding you and you do the same for them. When one falters, the other is there to pick them up and move forward again. This kind of affirmative faith in each other ensures a healthy relationship that will last a long time.
There is trust
You both trust each other enough to do things your own way yet remain loyal only to one another. You do not go looking into their personal stuff nor do they look into yours and trust each other to handle issues themselves, without cheating on the other. When they break a promise or cannot fulfil some responsibility, there is enough trust between you two that you do not hold it over their head and put baseless blames on them.
They do the same for you. If you have such an unflinching, unmoving trust in your relationship then it can stand the test of time because everything else in a relationship is based on the moral of trust. – Continue reading on next page
There is mutual acceptance
So you both know each other’s pasts; know the kind of upbringing you both had; all the past lovers you have been with; every past mistake you made and yet both of you accept each other the way it is that is a sure sign for the relationship that is going to last. You do not try to control your partner to make them do things your way nor do they control you. Neither of you question each other’s motives for doing what they do.
There is gratitude
You both appreciate the little things you do for each other. No one is waiting for the new job or for the salary bump; to move in to the different city, or for the next trip to make things interesting in the relationship.
You and your partner are truly grateful for what you have right now in the present. Both of you find contentment and peace with what you have together and no one plays the dangerous game of if only. There is no rushing into things either. Both you and your partner focus on the path you are walking upon together and the whole process of it, not the destination.
There is good communication
Both of you realize how important it is to resolve petty little issues, work past temporary setbacks and be happy again. And in order to do that, there exists good communication between you and your partner. You speak your mind and do not mind what you speak.
There is no hesitation or withholding of anything between the two of you in fact, letting out what you both feel seems like the most comfortable thing to do. You both listen to one another and take heed of what the other wants, or what needs to be changed so things would be better.
There is satisfactory physical interaction
Both you and your partner cater to each other’s physical needs and keep your sex life healthy too. They respect you in regards to what they want from you and you do the same for them. The degree to which the intimacy between you two grows will contribute accordingly to a well set relationship where both of you are satisfied sexually.
Nurturing to each other’s wants and needs like that brings you and your partner closer and hence; it accumulates to an increased chance of your relationship standing strong and tough against the odds. – Continue reading on next page
There is respect
You both value and honor each other’s difference in opinions, choices, tastes and boundaries, all the while encouraging each other to pursue their dreams and passions. If they love dancing, you encourage them to do it. If you love travelling, they encourage you to do it with friends. Neither of you expects the other to fulfil each other’s emotional cravings and such which is why you have other relationships with other people too, like family and friends etc, instead of just being committed to one person.
There are common goals
You both the same things in the long run of things to come marriage, kids, a family living happily together somewhere in a nice house by the beach or countryside, a pet and so much more. You cannot expect to be with someone for a long time when you do not share common interests. They would want something else and you would want another. Things will not work out unless either one of you compromisesnot something guaranteed each time. Both of you devise plans on achieving those goals together and the relationship lasts.
There is effort put in from both sides
Everything you and your partner want in a relationship to make it work for as long as you can culminates to the fact of how much effort each of you puts into the other, how you bring out the best in your partner and they bring out the best in you. When you make a mistake and admit to it, they do not treat you harshly and you do the same for them. In times of disagreement, you make each other see the rational side of the discussion instead of stressing on the negativity alone.
There is determination
Both you and your partner do not give up on each other no matter how hard it gets. When you lose sight of the bigger picture and go astray, they do not give up on you but help you regain your focus again and you do the same for them. When they feel tired from everything and make foolish decisions, you do not just walk away but make them regain their strength.
