How to develop a fulfilling relationship
Recently, I met a couple who seemed upset and perplexed about their whole thing. They were in a relationship for the last 3 years. Then, what was the problem between these two? What was bothering and making them stressed?
Do you think it’s easy to have a relationship with someone as it is shown in our movies? No..it’s not. Reel life isn’t real life. The reality of this uncertain world is that it’s difficult to have a fulfilling relationship and the more difficult part is to make it work for a longer period of time. But why? Why is a healthy relationship hard to get? Also, Why do people want to have a fulfilling relationship?
First, let’s talk about what is the relationship? According to my perception, relationships are all about acceptance. A relationship, whether it is a starting out or spent a few years together, you accept a person with their flaws and inspire them to be the best version of themselves. Not merely this, but both the parties need to know about self-love, trust, respect for each other, openness about their feelings, and passionate chemistry between them.
Nowadays, our youth is always in haste when it comes to a relationship. And then they have to suffer from a traumatizing experience. So, I’ll talk about what makes a relationship healthy to help them out to have a fulfilling relationship and not to suffer anymore.
We all live in an uncertain and unpredictable world where we want a certain relationship. Why? Before having a steady relation, both of them need to be stable or self-actualized adults. Certainty doesn’t mean a boring relationship. Stability is the base of trust between them, it gives satisfaction, they love and support each other. In a stable relationship, people try to focus on solutions instead of problems, they have an optimistic environment rather than blame game or arguing over nothing.
Emotional connection and support
Sometimes, people have to compromise with their emotional connection which drifts them apart. In a new relationship, you feel loved, you give enough time but over a period of time, people tend to focus on their careers, work responsibilities, and whatnot. The connection is what holds them together. This is their real and one of the most important strengths for them to have in a relationship. To avoid this disconnection, they need to recognize where the problems exist. They have to talk about their feelings and try to spend some time together.
Talking goes both ways. People should be comfortable talking about the problems that come up, from everything that happens in everyday life, such as work or friend stress, to more serious troubles, like mental health symptoms or monetary concerns. Even if they have a different perspective, they will have to listen without judgment and then share their viewpoints.
Genuineness and honesty plays a pivotal role in a relationship. In relation, people don’t keep secrets from each other. Also, they feel secure and comfortable together. Respect each other enough to encourage them to make their own decisions.
The couple should become interdependent. They rely on one another for mutual support but still keep everything balanced. Love each other but don’t forget about yourself.
Every single person wants a healthy and fulfilled relationship but not every relationship brings you the feeling of joy and happiness. To make it work, you have to invest everything you desire for but never cross the limit.
