Friendship Types

Nobody would choose to live without friendship even if he had all the other good things in life. The traditional idea of Friendship as suggested by Aristotle has three components: ‘Friends must enjoy each other’s company, they must be useful to one another, and they must share a common commitment to the good.’

Friendship is a form of virtue and it is also essential for living. Nobody would choose to live without friendship even if he had all the other good things in life. The traditional idea of Friendship as suggested by Aristotle has three components: ‘Friends must enjoy each other’s company, they must be useful to one another, and they must share a common commitment to the good.’  He made a distinction between what he believes to be genuine friendships and other forms of friendship based on mutual usefulness or on pleasure. The latter two forms of friendships last only for as long as there is utility and pleasure involved, whereas genuine friendship is eternal.

  • Friendship based on utility: Utility is not permanent; it changes according to time and circumstances. Since that was what kept the friendship alive in the first place, with its disappearance, the friendship also breaks up due to the lack of grounds. These kinds of friendships seem to occur mostly with people pursuing their own advantages. They take pleasure in each other’s company only in so far as they have hopes of advantage from it. Friendships with foreigners are generally included in this class.
  • Friendship based on pleasure: Young people’s lives are regulated by their feelings and most friendships at young ages are grounded on pleasure. The chief interest of the young are in their own pleasure and the opportunity of the moment. With time their tastes and preferences changes and so they are quick in making and breaking friendships too. Because their affection changes just as the objects of their pleasure, they fall in and out of friendship quickly, changing their attitude sometimes even within the same day.
  • Perfect friendship: This type of friendship is based on goodness. Only the friendship of those people, who are good and similar in their goodness, is perfect. And it is those who desire the good of their friends for the friends’ sake and not for any incidental quality that are really true friends. Since goodness is an enduring quality friendship of this kind is permanent. In this kind of friendship people are united in all the attributes that friends ought to possess. Aristotle further added on genuine friendship that, ‘And it is those who desire the good of their friends for the friends’ sake that are most truly friends, because each loves the other for what he is, and not for any incidental quality.’

 The last kind of friendships is rare and we should be grateful we have that kind of friendship. Our friends are precious and we should let them know they are appreciated and well loved. And on the occasion of Friendship Day we can share our love and affections with them by spending quality time together. We could also buy Friendship Day gifts and exchange them with our friends in the spirit of the occasion. And nowadays finding the right gifts is a simple task as a number of internet gifts store provides a plethora of Friendship Day gifts online. Even if we stay far we can still order the Friendship Day gifts online and have them delivered direct to our friends.

Recharge Your Relationship

Maybe you’ve been dating for a while and you just need to spice things up a bit. Every relationship needs a boost every now and then, but not everyone knows just how to do this so that both partners are happy again. Some relationships die because the partners believe that there is no way to revitalize their relationship – but that’s incorrect thinking. There are plenty of ways to put the spark back into your relationship.

Maybe you’ve been dating for a while and you just need to spice things up a bit. Every relationship needs a boost every now and then, but not everyone knows just how to do this so that both partners are happy again. Some relationships die because the partners believe that there is no way to revitalize their relationship – but that’s incorrect thinking. There are plenty of ways to put the spark back into your relationship.

#1 Try something different

It’s seems a little simple, but trying something different in your relationship is the best way to overcome a ‘boring’ time and start anew. Try a new activity or go on a vacation together. Talk with each other and find out what you’ve always wanted to do – and then do it. Take a class together or try a new restaurant. It doesn’t have to be complicated.

#2 Take time away

Go off and try your own activities for a weekend or a week. When you take the time to re-find yourself in the relationship, you can bring a new vigor and life to the staleness. Too often couples want to share everything with each other, but this doesn’t always increase the fun in a relationship. You get into ruts and habits and you forget that you both have your own interests. And when you’re off exploring your own ‘things,’ you’ve got more to talk about and to share.

#3 Change your look

As superficial as it sounds, there is something to the phrase, “Fake it ’til you make it.” Why not try to be the more exiting couple that you want to be by dressing the part as well? Try a new look or a new hairstyle in order to change the way that you look to your partner. We always seem to get into ruts when we’re in a couple because we think that once we ‘have’ someone, we don’t need to impress them anymore. Surprise them!

#4 Do something out of the ordinary

Bringing a woman flowers might see clichéd, but it still works to create romance in a relationship. And don’t do it on an anniversary or some other expected occasion – do it for no reason at all. If you can, send them to her workplace so that she gets a lot of attention. She’ll love it.

#5 Make dinner 

Again, it seems like the oldest ‘trick’ in the book, but making a meal for your partner or spouse is a great way to create a sense of newness to a relationship – especially when you don’t normally do it. When you simply take the time to think about what someone wants to eat as well as creating an atmosphere that supports a loving environment, it’s more than just a meal; it’s an expression of your love.

#6 Get out of town

Something as simple as heading to a flea market is a great way to rejuvenate a relationship – especially if it’s something that you haven’t done before. When you get away from your normal surroundings, you aren’t able to sink into your normal habits. Try to get away from your home or apartments at least once a month to keep your relationship strong and healthy.

#7 Hang out with your friends – apart

Just like spending time alone, you still need to keep in contact with your circle of friends. When you start to lose contact of the people that you knew before your partner, you can feel like your entire life is devoted to your partner – and that can be stifling. You want to hang out with the guys a few times a week because it reminds you of the person that you are. Your friends won’t let you change for your partner – and your partner doesn’t want you to either.

#8 Travel in a car

Some people will say that traveling together is the biggest test of a relationship, but it’s actually a great way to rebuild a faltering one. When you have to direct yourselves to a new place, you will have arguments, but in the end, you’re accomplishing a goal together – and that makes anyone feel good.

#9 Take a class for couples

Most community centers have classes that involve couples. Think about dancing or trying a new sport together. Not only will you have to work together as a couple, but you will also be learning something new.

#10 Show that the person is important to you

Too often we let our lives get in the way of our relationships, when it should be the other way around. No matter what, be sure that you show your partner every day that they are important to you – that step alone can keep your relationship healthy and you both happy.

The Secret of Bliss

Research indicates that smiling has a very positive effect on how we feel. Smiling releases feel-good neurotransmitters in our brain that make us feel happy. I discovered that the more I expressed gratitude for everything, the more I naturally smiled, and that smiling is contagious! Recently I was in a market and I noticed people smiling at me. At first I did

Contributor: Margaret Paul, Ph.D.

One of the things I’ve learned to do is follow the directions my guidance gives to me. This has led me to have an amazing life that I love. But since I know that there is always more to learn, I’m always asking my guidance to tell me what else she wants me to focus on.

Awhile ago, she gave me three instructions that I want to share with you, because over time they have brought me deep and sustained joy and bliss!

Let go of all Background Negativity

I had thought that I had released all the negativity of my wounded self, but my guidance told me that there was still some quiet subtle negativity going on, and that I needed to tune into it any time I felt anything less than joy. I was actually shocked to discover that the negativity was mostly minor complaints, such as, “I don’t feel like un-stacking the dishwasher right now,” or “I wish I had more time today to work on my new book.” Even these minor complaints were lowering my frequency and taking away some of my joy. As soon as I became aware of these background complaints, I consciously stopped them, and replaced them with gratitude, which was the second instruction she gave me.

Consistent Gratitude – Out Loud

I have been focusing on gratitude for a long time, but she told me I still wasn’t doing it enough – that I needed to do it out-loud for every little thing, such as, “Thank you that I have a dishwasher to un-stack and that I’m able-bodied so I can do it,” and “Thank you that I’ve been contracted to write a new book that I’m so excited about!” She clearly told me that I needed to feel the gratitude within my heart and soul – to the point where saying it brought me the kind of joy that makes me smile – which was the third instruction she gave me.

Smile!

Research indicates that smiling has a very positive effect on how we feel. Smiling releases feel-good neurotransmitters in our brain that make us feel happy. I discovered that the more I expressed gratitude for everything, the more I naturally smiled, and that smiling is contagious! Recently I was in a market and I noticed people smiling at me. At first I didn’t know why they were, but then I realized that smiling had become so habitual to me that they were returning my smile!

Manifestation: It’s About Paying Attention to Your Feelings

The reason Step 1 of Inner Healing involves being present in your body with your feelings is because this is how you know the minute you are allowing any negativity from your wounded self to limit your peace, joy and ability to manifest. Spirit always wants to help us manifest our heart’s desire, but it can’t when we are allowing our wounded self to lower our frequency too low. By staying present with your feelings, you can instantly notice any negativity, and shift into gratitude.

You won’t know the power of this until you are willing to try it. While I experienced much joy before my guidance gave me these directions, the joy I’m experiencing now is over the top! Recently, Dr. Erika Chopich asked me what I was doing that made me so happy and my answer was, “I’m following directions!” She laughed and said, “What directions?” After I explained it to her, she suggested that I write an article on it, so here it is.

I hope you follow these directions!

How to Focus on the Positive Qualities of Your Relationship

The quality of your life has a strong connection with how healthy your relationship with other people is. Do you struggle to make other people see things your way? Well stop trying, because you can’t manipulate others. Why? Well, just like you, they are operating from their own map of the world. What you CAN do is develop a habit of paying attention to the positive aspects of your relationship.

The quality of your life has a strong connection with how healthy your relationship with other people is. Do you struggle to make other people see things your way? Well stop trying, because you can’t manipulate others. Why? Well, just like you, they are operating from their own map of the world. What you CAN do is develop a habit of paying attention to the positive aspects of your relationship.

If you are distressed by your relationships, then you need to change the way in which you react to the behaviour of others. If you hold a belief that you will only be happy when the other person changes, it’s time to get real, because: The Buck Stops With You.

Think about someone in your life; Are you paying attention to the qualities you think that person is lacking? For example, maybe you think: “If only he was tidier, more attentive to me, more loving, etc.”? Whatever you put your attention on expands. If you only notice the things that annoy you about others, or if you focus on what you think they are not doing right, then you will only experience more of the behaviour that you are trying to avoid!

Try this exercise:
Think about this specific person, and write down the qualities you admire in them. Take the time to remember what drew you to them in the first place. Maybe they are great at making you laugh. They could be a good listener, or have a talent for organising things and events. Whatever you like about this person, write it onto a list! And then look at this list every day.

By doing this, you shift your subconscious attention onto the positive aspects of the relationship and you will start to experience even more of these qualities that you like! Your relationship will improve and the other person will start to become more loving, open and receptive towards you as well.

What About Those Things You Don’t Like?
Okay, then. What really annoys you about others? Do you get upset by arrogant people? Or maybe people who cannot be assertive really make your blood boil. Whatever it is that bothers you, you must understand this:We criticize in others the very qualities that we dislike most about ourselves

We are all connected to a Universal consciousness. When you look at another person, you are also looking at a version of yourself. Learn to see yourself in the reflection of others, and you will become more tolerant of what you see as their negative qualities. And remember, other people, are always a mirror to you.

If you want a great relationship, you need to pay attention to the way you react to people. And most importantly, treat others as you would like to be treated. You have the ability to create a happy, fulfilling relationship, and if you learn to see yourself in others, you will find yourself becoming more and more open to experiencing the good qualities those people.

Tips on How to Reach Out and Create Personal Connections

Regardless of age, sex, race, and financial disposition, we all need to create and grow a network of friends and acquaintance to make our lives more worthwhile.

Contributor: Natalia S.

Building social connections is both a skill and an asset. The wider connections of friends we have, the happier and fuller we become as individuals. Regardless of age, sex, race, and financial disposition, we all need to create and grow a network of friends and acquaintance to make our lives more worthwhile.

Aside from family, money, and life insurance among many other things, one other important ingredient to lead a worry-free life is having a solid set of friends. It is our friends that we need when we are down and depressed. It is our friends who turn to when we just want someone to talk to, or someone to listen to our woes. It is also our friends and acquaintances that we need by our side when all that we want is hang loose and chill. There is nothing but truth in the adage, “no man is an island.” It is a fact that we need friends, and we cannot live this life happy, healthy, and worthwhile without them.

But friendship doesn’t mean that you need to be with them every minute of every day. That’s the beauty of genuine and pure friendship- you don’t have to be with each other’s company to feel loved. The connection is what makes friendships special. Common interests, passions, and hobbies connect people and help them to create friendships. These connections grow once you know your friends more. The connection then turns to love, care, and loyalty. With all these ingredients, you have a friendship that will last forever.

Aside from companionship, love, and care, there are also many perks to having a wide circle of friends. You gain benefits more connections, more information, and assistance as you build solid friendships with the people around you.

If you feel unsatisfied with your social life and would like to make it more worthwhile, here are some tips to boost your social connections.

1. Sign up for social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. You probably have all of these already. But if you still don’t have that many friends, try to browse through their friend suggestions. Join an online group that features your interests and hobbies. Start a conversation with acquaintances, and let these conversations lead you to knowing more people sharing the same interests as you!

2. Join local community groups you are most passionate about. If you are an animal lover, we are pretty sure there are animal advocacy group within your community. Great friendships often start between people who share the same passion and life advocacies.

3. Go to church. The church is a great venue for earning friends and building strong social connections. This is especially true if you want to further strengthen your faith as well as values in life.

4. Talk to your colleagues. To make the workplace bearable, start striking up conversations with your work mates. Having them around should not be stressful, but should be fun and interesting too.

5. Say hello to your neighbors. Don’t be the snobbish, grumpy neighbor. Connect with your neighbors as they make excellent friends especially when you simply want to chill and talk about home and family life.

How to Make an Old Relationship Feel New Again

Love can come alive again only if you want it to. You can put some work into it and make the smell of roses fill the air of emptiness and the presence of laughter fill the heart with love.

Contributor: R. E. Blake

The lasting of a “Beautiful Relationship” is “Respect and Honor.” The lasting of a ‘Marriage” is “putting Jesus first” and Love, Respect, Honor, Romance and a Bless Life will follow. Love can come alive again only if you want it to. You can put some work into it and make the smell of roses fill the air of emptiness and the presence of laughter fill the heart with love.

How do you value your “Relationship and Marriage”? Ask yourself this question, is it all about me or is it all about us? Are you growing out of each other, instead of growing into each other? Are you telling yourself I don’t feel that butterfly in my stomach anymore that use to make me feel as if I can’t live or breath without him or her. Or maybe you don’t feel the other party is attractive as they use to be. Or could it be time spent in bed just don’t feel the same anymore. Well I have good news for all of you.

Start learning how to appreciate each other. Have proactive communication, hold each other hands when you take a walk or sitting down. Validate each other with your words, go out on date nights just the two of you, to keep the attraction flowing. Choose days to do things you enjoy with the children, let everyone eat at the dinner table so you can talk about life. Go back down memory lane and talk about what use to make you both so happy. Dance with each other it brings romance to the relationship. Invite romance in your cooking its healthy for both of you. Let the children see you love each other and value each other and when they grow older they will do the same. Touch each other often it keeps the feelings alive The little things matters in your relationship.

Ladies listen to me and listen to me well. STOP acting as if you are too holy and pleasure your man, satisfy his physical needs; because if you don’t someone else will. Make your man feel love, valued and appreciated; make him want to come home to the treasure he has at home. Sneak him a love note now and then in his shirt or pants pocket. Or text him and let him know how much you love and appreciate him. you could also sneak an underwear in his work bag, so when he opens it at the office or where he works he bust out a big smile thinking that she still wants me. Leave him a little note with it to let him know what you have plan for later when he comes home. Men make your lady feel secure and validate her, satisfy her emotional needs while she satisfies your physical needs. Women are very emotional and love for these needs to be met. If you meet her emotionally, I promise you she has no problem meeting you physically in your needs, and everything else will just fall into place.

Live life to the fullest, enjoy the moments with each other. Love like there is no tomorrow, Laugh your heart out with each other. Life is beautiful, enjoy it while you can. Never take each other for granted.and ask god to heal your wounds. I hope this article will help you to see your partner beyond their scars, and the best of all learn to love each other through the eyes of Jesus Christ. “SMILE”

Take your Relationship to a New Level.

5 Reasons Why Disagreement is Beautiful

An unfortunate feature of our world today is that people are less tolerant of disagreement. But disagreement can be a good and healthy thing:

Contributor: Steve Wickham

An unfortunate feature of our world today is that people are less tolerant of disagreement. But disagreement can be a good and healthy thing:

1. Disagreement allows you to quietly challenge and prove others wrong – for example, when someone says, ‘you will never recover from… ‘ (they said it like this because it is their experience), you can quietly (within your own mind) disagree, believing if your heart is telling you, ‘No, I think I will overcome this pain, in time.’ Disagreement then is empowering; if they hadn’t have said something we disagreed with, we may not have been equipped with this empowering motivation to prove them wrong and create our own destiny.

2. Disagreement shows us the error of our ways – we all need to be corrected, and, although our pride dislikes it immensely in the moment, when humility kicks in we can begin to agree we were wrong. There, in that moment, is the heart of character challenge and the impetus toward character change and growth.

3. Disagreement highlights what we aren’t seeing – none of us sees everything. God puts others in our lives so we can see more, but again, we need the humility to understand we don’t see it all, that others see more truly than we do at times. This is a good thing. Others make us better than we would be alone.

4. Agreeing to disagree shows the maturity possible in a relationship – in all sorts of relationships, from marriages to friendships to employments arrangements, it is a massively empowering thing to be allowed to disagree – to coexist in that way. There’s nothing more toxic in my view than not being accepted because you disagree – like uniformity and conformity equals unity. It is stifling to be in any relationship where a deep condition is we must agree. We can be unified and disagree. The strongest unity exists in partial disagreement, because there is mutual respect shown when we allow the other person to hold a conflicting view, and still agree on keeping the main thing the main thing.

5. Disagreement proves the truths of perception – yes, this is a marvellous thing. This isn’t just a postmodern phenomenon – it’s always been the case. Two opposing views can be true at the same time. This highlights what the dualistic mind finds tormenting. Accepting that two people who disagree both have a point is the way toward conflict resolution, but both must begin to first appreciate the truth in the other person’s perception. Both have part of the truth. What both think has value.

Whether we are in agreement or disagreement, we are better together:

Better together, though less comfortable.

Better together, though less certainty.

Better together, though less cohesion.

Better together, though more conflict.

Better together, though more complaint.

Better together, though more complicated.

Still, we are better together.

32 Words That Can Change Your Life

We all have ways of testing opportunities that enter our lives. Some of us just dive right in based on feeling, others walk straight into what they know is right by a gut feeling or intuition. And if it’s not gut feelings or emotions that are the tests of opportunities, it is the logical mind persuading us to ignore those feelings and emotions and test it with our reality of reason.

Contributor: Carina MacInnes

We all have ways of testing opportunities that enter our lives. Some of us just dive right in based on feeling, others walk straight into what they know is right by a gut feeling or intuition. And if it’s not gut feelings or emotions that are the tests of opportunities, it is the logical mind persuading us to ignore those feelings and emotions and test it with our reality of reason.

Most of us do not have a predetermined strategy for testing opportunities, or even more generally to test the actions we take and the choices we make in our lives.

There is an easier way to determine if our choices we make and the opportunities we receive ‘pass the test’. This simple 32 word statement of business ethics was first created in the 1930s and used to turn around a failing company. These four questions were applied by each employee to each and to every minute detail of the company’s workings. This little list of four questions from Rotary International, a humanitarian business organization, is the most widely printed, translated and reproduced piece of business ethics today:

“Of the things we say, think or do:
1. Is it the TRUTH?
2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
3. Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?”

If we built businesses and our lives based on these very simple 4 questions we would be coming from a place completely the opposite of the competitive mind and the lack mentality. As you can see, these questions prompt you to choose what is true, fair, and good, making choices that can build friendships and goodwill. It helps us to see how the choices we make can be beneficial to all concerned. 

Because of our societal influences, we most often are inclined to make choices and act based on a competitive mind. This comes from the perspective of lack, scarcity, and ultimately greed.

Any opportunity based on the model of competition and lack will simply not pass the test. Competition promotes strife. It embodies winning one spot, taking it away from all the other people who want it. It misleads people to believing there is only one chance for success, when in reality there is plenty for all.

The competitive model encourages people to rely on a source outside of themselves to give them what they need. This denies the power of their own ability to create what they want. This narrow focus shows they are choosing to ignore the possibility of creating this opportunity in their own lives, instead of trying to win the spot from millions of others.

This simple testing technique takes us completely out of the competitive mind of greed, scarcity and lack. It turns our thoughts and choices toward the positive, realizing there are opportunities we can take that can provide increase for all concerned.

I invite you to use these questions to test your actions and opportunities in your life. If you are seeking opportunity, these questions may help you see things in a different way. In doing this, perhaps you might find an opportunity in your life which truly allows you to benefit the world, while at the same time reaching whatever your dreams, goals, and desires are.

Best Friendship Quotes With Explanations to Make Your Friendship Better

Contributor: Puneet Wilson

We often come across friendship quotes that were once uttered by men and women of great intellect. But very few of us actually know how deep their meaning goes. Today we will have a look at some of the best friendship quotes with explanations to make your friendship better. These will definitely enable you to understand the finer aspects of friendship and what it is that makes it so priceless.

“With true friends, even water drunk is sweet enough.” – Chinese Proverb

Well, nobody can deny the fact that friendship makes life worth living. No matter how hostile circumstances turn out to be, if you have a friend beside you, things do not seem so bad. They are the ones who support us throughout and act as pillars of strength when we have absolutely no motivation to keep moving.

“Friendship is the only cement that will ever hold the world together” – Woodrow Wilson

Since a very long, the entire world had been obsessed with power and the subjugation of fellow human beings. Constant enmity with one another had led to devastating wars that have killed millions. Friendship is the concept that could definitely make the world a better place to live in. Fellow feeling for each other makes us realize how important it is to coexist in peace and live in harmony.

“Friendship needs no words.” – Dag Hammerskjold

The basic principal behind a true friendship is complete understanding that exists between the individuals. This builds over a period of time and little things about the other person opens a window to his/her heart. The best part about friendship is the fact that you do not have to make yourself understood with the help of a lot of words. Communication here takes place through sentiments and sympathy for each other.

“Few delights can equal the mere presence of someone we utterly trust” – George MacDonald

In the present times, it is extremely difficult to trust a person. Everywhere you look, you will find a group of opportunists who are gearing up to move ahead in life at your cost. Your friend on the other hand is someone whom you can bet your life on. He/she will never let you down and provide you with that much needed feeling of security. Even if the whole world goes against you, your friend will always be there to guide and support you.

“Good friends are like stars. You don’t always see them, but you know they are always there.” – Anonymous

There are a lot of people who have had to relocate for a career or for other reasons. But that certainly does not mean that the distance affects the friendships of a person in an adverse manner. Though you might not be able to meet them often or call them every now and then, in your heart you will know that they will be by your side whenever you need them the most. You might be out of sight but nothing can take you out of their minds. Friendship binds two hearts in a bond of love and there is absolutely nothing that can come between them.

With all of the advice out there on how to rebuild your relationship, why not look at tips to keep your already healthy relationship in tact? There are plenty of things that you should avoid in order to make your relationship with your wife or girlfriend from unnecessary miscommunication as well as arguments. In fact, these tips can help you in every relationship that you have – read on.

DON’T be right all the time

There’s nothing more frustrating in a relationship than a person who insists that they are always right. No one is right all of the time, and it’s time that you realized that. It takes a much stronger person to admit that they were wrong than it is for someone to not admit that they may have made a mistake. Don’t be the know it all.

DON’T refuse to apologize

You will have something that you need to apologize for at some point, even if you don’t think that it’s a big deal. When you allow your partner to hear that you are sorry about something, you allow them to see that you are willing to move past something in order to have a healthier relationship. And even if you don’t think that you are wrong, apologizing is a great way to start fixing the situation instead of making it worse.

DON’T know the other person better than they know themselves

If you’ve ever been in a fight or a discussion when another person has claimed to know what you want, doesn’t that feel upsetting? You want to avoid doggedly trying to prove that you know more about the other person than they do – because that just isn’t the case. Take the time to consider their feelings and thoughts when they tell them to you. To not let them have a say is to make the conversation one sided.

DON’T assume anything

When you start to assume something, you start to chip away at the truth. IF you want to know about something, the other person is going to have to tell you what you need to know. Assuming that someone feels a certain way or that they want you to do a certain thing is only going to set you up for possible problems. Assuming is really just guessing.

DON’T rub it in

If you do find out that you are right about something, you don’t want to constantly rub the fact in long after the discussion is over. Your relationship isn’t about someone being right; it’s about the two of you being happy. If you’re right, you’re right, but then you need to move on. Your partner will not appreciate being reminded that they were wrong.

DON’T put your priorities first

While you both want to have your needs and wants addressed, when you try to focus more on your own needs than your partner’s needs, you will be seen as selfish and uncaring. A relationship means that you are putting someone else’s needs before your own, and in doing so, allowing your needs to be fulfilled as well. Seek out their needs to see how you can compromise to make both of you happy.

DON’T interrupt them

When you’re trying to make a point, you might feel that your words are more important than theirs, but this is not helpful. If you are interrupting what someone else is saying all the time, two things happen: one, you’re not hearing what they are saying, and two, you are showing that your opinions are more important than theirs. Instead, stop yourself and make a mental note to bring up your point when they are finished.

DON’T make promises you can’t keep

You aren’t going to be perfect, but when someone is counting on you to help maintain a good relationship; you need to be able to hold up your part of the bargain. This means that you need to be able to make promises that you can keep. And when you do make a promise to someone, they need to be able to expect that you will follow through – every time. If you can’t make a promise, then let them know that you will try your hardest, but that you can not promise it. This allows them to have realistic expectations of you.

No relationship is perfect, but there are plenty of ways that you can keep it from becoming unhealthy.
