Building strong relationships

Hello beautiful people of the internet,

Today we’re talking relationships. Relationships are a funny thing, almost like a small child. They need a lot of attention and care. You really do get out of it what you put in. However, it takes two to make it a success.

I’ve definitely had my fair share of bad relationships and have been lucky enough to meet someone pretty special. We’ve had a few bumps in the road along the way but the same advice helps us out every time. So I thought I’d share it with you lovely people.

Talk! Talk, talk, talk. You really do need to talk. A lot of the time people will hold in their feelings and wont tell their partner when something annoys them. Now I’m not talking about your significant other leaving the milk out for the fifth time. I mean something that really affects your relationship and where you see it going.

You cannot blame your partner for not knowing something is an issue, and not acting on it, if you never tell them. By discussing these things  you will not only resolve the situation, but learn to communicate better which will strengthen your relationship.

Secondly, spend time together doing what you like. Your friends may think you should all be going out together, but make sure to give yourselves enough quality time with just the two of you. You will spend your whole life getting to know your partner, it’s almost impossible to know absolutely everything about them, because we change and grow as we get older.

Thirdly, make sure to actually take an interest in what your partner likes. Now you don’t have to love it, but try to look somewhat engaged when they discuss their interests with you. Even better go try it out too! You never know you might actually have fun. At the same time, it is absolutely fine to have different interests. Having that individual time on your own doing something you love, is extremely healthy for your relationship. So go out and find something you’re passionate about. Then share it with your partner. Tell them why you love it and have fun.

Lastly, trust your partner. We all have a little jealousy in us and that’s fine, as long as you don’t let it get out of hand. Your partner may be working long hours or have frequent business trips. But what is the point in being in a relationship with them if you can’t even trust them. Try not to think the worst of them, especially if they have never betrayed your trust before. And if you feel like something is wrong then talk to them. Trust needs to  be in the foundations of your relationship. It’s not always easy but it’s worth it!

So that’s it from me. If you have any specific relationship advice you would like me to cover then feel free to leave a comment down below. Take your time and enjoy your relationship with your partner. Put in the effort and together you will build something amazing!

Talk soon,

Rebecca
