Your actions toward your partner

237877-A-True-Relationship-Is-Someone-Who-Supports-Encourages-And-Accepts-You

 

What you do towards your partner has the tendency to either uplift or tamp them down more than what others do to them.

You cannot be with someone and expect not to affect them in anyway, or expect other’s actions to impact them more than yours do.

The question is: How do you want to affect your partner?

The fact that your partner has given you their hearts by choosing to be with you means that they will be very hurt or highly encouraged when you make them feel worthless or something meaningful, respectively.

My advice is: Make them feel meaningful because it will only pay you, no matter how you look at it.

Vulnerability in a Relationship

Vulnerability is seen as a weakness, but it can be an advantage in a relationship because it gives a couple the opportunities to show who they are without fear of being hurt or taken advantage of.

In other words, vulnerability is your willingness to allow your partner to see you the way you are without making them feel the need to do anything about it.

The positive side of it is when your partner allows you to be who you are and takes you for it. You do not have to tell them everything about you before they can tell who you are. But they need to work towards being intimate with you to make you to be willing to allow them see every part of you, and what you are capable of.

Someone who is not close to you or who does not have confidence in you may not want to show you everything about them. So, how you relate with your partner will definitely affect how they will lean towards you.

TODAY’S LOVE NUGGET

 

Romantic couple drinking tea in front of lit fireplace

 

Making a cup of tea for one’s partner.

 

A small, caring gesture.

 

This is just one of a number of little acts of kindness that can help a relationship thrive.

According to the OnePlusOne charity, such small acts “demonstrate commitment, improve communication, show we care, achieve compromise and even resolve conflicts”.

All that just from giving someone a cup of tea they probably didn’t want in the first place?

What if you hate each other? Wouldn’t it just be annoying?

 

The idea is to prevent the problems that lead to marital breakdown by keeping your partnership strong.

How do you interact so that your relationship or marriage can move forward? (Part 2)

To interact with your spouse effectively, you must first do the followings:

Acceptance

Acceptance is your willingness to take that person for who they are, and what they are able to do because you know who they truly are. This is like knowing that the person is unique and that their deeds are like an expression of how unique they are. With such an idea, you will find them and all that they do very interesting, since you will not find fault in their actions.

Trust 

Trust is the assurance you have that your partner is who you think he or she really is. It is not who you think they are going to be in the future. Trust balances your mind on a flat base, where you think that your partner will behave in a particular way especially in a way that will make you feel safe and proud, no matter the situation the person is in.

How you interact with your partner can determine how happy or sad both of you are going to be. Wrong interactions between a couple can make them doubt the purpose of their union and if they ever liked each other before they came together.

What Happens Next After An Argument With Your Partner?

 

220031-After-The-Argument

 

After an argument with your partner, do not withdraw into a protective but uncomfortable bubble where you say things like “I will never bother you again from this day onward, or stay away from me, okay?”

In such a mode, you will end up keeping malice with your partner for a while, treating him or her with lack of commitment, or detaching gradually by giving your time to something new.

The danger of taking such an ugly stance in your relationship is that you may never be the same again when you step out of your uncomfortable safe-haven. Such behaviour will send the wrong message to your partner, and for that reason the person may withdraw from you. The consequence is a partner who does not care for you anymore.

Be careful with your utterances in times of arguments with your partner. There’s the tendency that your partner will reflect on whatever word you have uttered, and that might help the person to know exactly what he or she is worth in your life.
