Giving Your Best I like writing about’Relationships’ as it’s one of my favourite subjects. Honestly, today relationships have proven to be like the’changing of clothes’ each day. The gist of all is: ‘the changing times’. But if you aren’t able to foster or nurture 1 relationship, then you aren’t likely to nurture the other. Though, there is one exception in my view to what I just stated; it’s not to target those relationships that are abusive, where the victim female or male is physically or emotionally abused. We get to live life once, and it doesn’t mean that we succumb to any connection that is torturous in nature. After conducting a brief research study on the topic, it’s realized that different authors have made varying observations regarding this subject. Each author expresses his/her own opinion as they perceive and define’relationship’. Turn’on’ your Positive Psychology in Relationships Author Carr in’Positive Psychology: The Science of Happiness and Human Strengths’ said that positive psychology is related to the positive emotions and affection in your relationship. When both the spouses work through their conflicts, and sort them out by communicating respectfully and forgiving each other’s mistakes; then they tend to obtain high levels of satisfaction in their relationship. This being one aspect, the other is the endurance and perseverance to work at your relationship. If you love and care about your partner then it’s obvious that you will work towards sharing a positive connection. Quit seeking Perfection in your partner The understanding is important that we are human beings, and not one of us is perfect. Therefore, we can’t expect perfection in our partner. There will be certain behaviors that may irritate, or there may be some weaknesses that are too tough to accept, but the bottom-line is you have to deal with those behaviours in a positive manner without humiliating or demeaning your spouse. Rather than reacting impulsively to those behaviors, you can await the ideal time to talk with your partner about certain behaviors that seem bothersome. The confrontational talk needs to be non-judgmental, so that your partner is a excellent receiver to your concerns. Overcome the Temptation As we are living in a new age it is now easy to change partners or move on without giving a thought to your connection. The biggest temptation nowadays seems to be’gap-fillers’. Gap-fillers are those’so-called friends’ who create an entry on your life at just the wrong moment. When you face challenging times in your marriage or dating relationship, then it’s normal that you have a friend who acts as your spouse replacement. He/She is filled with all the great talks, assurances and might even want you to believe life is worth living, so why live with a partner you are not pleased with? But if you think really deep, it can be examined or assessed that if you can’t live or put up with one partner, then there isn’t any guarantee that you have the ability to put up with a new spouse. The beginning days of a new and rosy relationship may seem to be the best, but you never know when the same relationship may turn to your own worst. The best advice once your marriage or relationship isn’t working would be to wait patiently and to give yourself and spouse the opportunity to work out whether it’s truly over, and for real reasons so that you don’t get a chance to repent in life for missing out on the best.
