Simple but Hard: Finding True Happiness in Your Relationship
Maybe you just want to find that one relationship which makes you truly happy. But every time you get into a relationship, happiness does not last long. Somehow, things get messy and you end up in the same place again and again. But why does it happen? What can you do to be really happy in a relationship?
Well, if you want to be happy in your relationship, you can do the following:
Spend quality time with your partner
Millions of men and women spend days, weeks and years together, but still, they never really connect with the person sitting across the table. If you truly want to be happy in your relationship, happy with your partner, you should be totally present in the moment when you are with him. When you are together, learn to give your partner undivided attention. Forget about your work, your problems, and everything else in the world. When you spend a moment with your partner, your partner should be the only thing that matters to you during that moment. The trick is to love each other, laugh with each other, share your joys and sorrows, and just be happy and content.
Be willing to accept faults
Nobody is perfect. Human beings are human beings, and no matter how amazing a human becomes, he will most likely have some faults. In order to truly be happy with someone, you have to understand that you cannot get someone who is completely perfect. You have to know what faults your partner has, and you have to be willing to accept those faults without resentment or anger. And at the same time, you have to be willing to look into the mirror and accept the faults of the person you see in the mirror, too.
Concentrate on real goals
It does not matter whether you are a man or a woman, if you depend only on your relationship to give you all the happiness in the world, you will fail. No one can be really happy without having some goal or purpose. If you do not work toward specific goals or ambitions, happiness will find a way to escape. In other words, you will not be happy with another person if you are not happy with yourself. A relationship with another person can do only so much. In the end, it is your relationship with yourself that is going to determine your level of happiness and satisfaction with your life.
