The happy long-lasting relationship is not a myth. Yes, not even in this generation. People can never be perfect and everyone needs to understand this. Relationships are perfect when people work to make it perfect. We have to understand that our certain behavior hurts the other person and this ruins the well going relationship. If you also want a smooth, happy and long lasting relationship, then you must avoid these 6 things for sure.
Do not threaten to ‘break up’
Every relationship has its own share of ups and downs. There is hardly a couple who never fights. Healthy fights are fine and we all are open for the ugly fights too because that’s how life goes. A smooth graph of life is a lie.
But even if you are in the worst fight with your partner, do not use the word ‘break up’ ever. This would somehow take the things to another level and you don’t know what the outcome may be. Stick to the topic, fight, express your heart out and resolve it.
Do not insult each other
One of the worst things couples do in their relationship is insulting each other. Be it body shaming, character shaming, or whatever – just refrain yourself from doing it. No matter how angry you are with your partner or how bad you are feeling, do not go on to the level of insulting your partner at any cost. You may or may not mend things later but the words once spoken can never be taken back. And evil words hurt deeper.
Do not cheat on your partner
If you are unhappy in a relationship, then you must talk about it with your partner. But do not ever cheat on your partner. Trust is the basis of any relationship and you must never hamper that. You never know that how badly this act of yours can impact the other person and they might not even find the courage to trust others in the future.
Honesty is the best policy and never lie
Hurting someone with a trust is always better than comforting them with a lie. In a relationship, you must always be open with your partner. Share your deepest and the darkest secrets with them if you trust them. If you don’t trust them, wait for the time till you trust them and share your life with them. There is no point going further with lies. So, if you want a happy and a long relationship, you must avoid speaking lies to your partner.
There is no place of ego in a healthy relationship
One of the best things that you can do for your partner is understanding them when they are mad at you. Do not get hyper on them. And when you have fought, be the first one to approach them. You can do this by keeping aside your ego. Ego is the worst thing that can hamper your relationship. So, do not be nosy all the time and try to understand the mood swings of your partner. And yes, saying a Sorry never hurts.
Avoid being a clingy girlfriend
Everyone has their personal life and everyone loves their space. Do not try to be over dominating and avoid controlling their lives. ‘Do not go here, do not talk to that person, delete that person from your FB, don’t do this and that’, these look good only till the point of concern. If you go overboard with this, it is just like hampering their space and controlling their lives. This can be claustrophobic in a relationship, so refrain from doing this.
