Making Your Relationship Work

When I was growing up divorce was just something that wasn’t done, or at least not very often. Now more and more couples are divorcing or breaking up.

So why are people having a harder time staying together and what can be done to keep a relationship together and making it work?

I believe the reason people don’t stay together is two-fold.

First, there are more options now, if you are unhappy you don’t have to stay because if you don’t you will be shunned by the community.

Second, because people always thinking things are “greener on the other side” and they give up too quickly. The purpose of this article is to show you what you can do to make your relationship work.

The number one way to make your relationship work is to communicate. Communication is so essential to a relationship. If you don’t share the day to day stuff, the important stuff and the stuff that sucks then your partner has no idea where you are and what is going on with you and you have no idea where they are or what is going on with them.

The next way is to make you available. And no I don’t mean time here. You have to be open emotionally wise. You have to be willing to let the other person into your world and you have to want to be in his or hers. You also have to open your heart and let them into it, which is hard to do if you have ever been hurt before.

Another important piece to the puzzle of a relationship is being willing to share it all. And what I mean by that is: the good, the bad, the love, the frustration, the fun, and the sadness.

The fourth way to make your relationship work is for both of you to compromise. You can’t always have it your way or vice versa. So be prepared to give a little and on occasion to take a little.

By compromising you change each other/shape each other and that is not a bad thing because change comes no matter what. And sometimes that change is for the better because you are forced to look at things from a different perspective.

Another big one is tied to your values and beliefs. You don’t necessarily have to agree on everything in relation to values and beliefs, but you have to respect each other. If you don’t one or both of you will get resentful.

Making any relationship work is not easy. It takes work and compromise, it requires you to open up you heart and allow the other person it; it demands that you both communicate, and it means loving the other person for all the good and especially all the bad.

If you are not willing to do those things then your relationship is going to have a very difficult road to follow. But if you make the commitment then the end result is something that is beautiful and something that can last a life time.
