Maintaining a healthy relationship is not always easy. In fact, with the divorce rates we have nowadays it almost seems rare these days. There are however some special things to consider when looking into creating a loving and prosperous relationship that works in the short but especially in the long term.
Much of these involve paying attention to our partner and spending time together. But remember that one of the biggest is communication and the ability to better understand one-another.
7 of the biggest mistakes we make in our relationships
#1 Forgetting to Be Friends
The root of a healthy relationship is friendship. Don’t let your romance (or lack thereof) make you forget that.
#2 Intentionally Saying Hurtful Things
This is a tactic that some people just didn’t grow out of after high school like they should have.
Even when you are arguing with each other, don’t say things that you know will hurt them. Don’t disrespect them or say something that could affect them negatively.
#3 Not Resolving Conflict
It’s become pretty popular to avoid saying “I’m sorry” at all costs these days.
This may work for you if you’d like to make your partner feel terrible, but owning up to your mistakes will be worth it for both of you.
