Relationships may be the hardest thing you will ever do. Learn how to improve them to the best of your ability. Most people don’t think relationships or love are things they can learn about. They just sail on believing that Romantic Love will see me through or that with the right person it will be fine. Facts show they are wrong, love often diminishes and very many relationships fail.
There is a lot at stake. Relationships affect everything. You and your partner’s peace of mind, your home, employment, location, friendships and any children’s mental welfare. Your love relationships may be with you 24/7 for the rest of your life. Do you want to leave this to chance when you can learn how to do better?
The only wisdom most of us have about long-term relationships is from our own upbringing. Were your caregivers a perfect model? How do we avoid repeating mistakes? “She married her father.” “Like father like son.” “She treats her children as she was treated.”
We owe it to ourselves and those around us to think and learn about how we do relationships. Don’t re-invent the wheel, educate yourself. There is plenty of wisdom to learn from. You can learn how to love better.
Each post on this free site is dedicated to helping people learn and improve their love relationships. At whatever stage you are, single or part of a couple, it is not too late to learn and improve your relationships. This free site Relationshipegg.com offers stimulating ideas that are aimed at helping you to think, learn and improve your love relationships.
Talk and work with a partner if s/he is available and willing. If not learn and work on yourself. (Don’t make the mistake of working on a partner!)
Think again and again. Situations shift, long term relationships change and you need new knowledge, skills and behaviours. Old solutions will not solve new problems. Embrace the new and continually re-inform yourself. Love needs to be nurtured within relationships.
It takes time and commitment. It means you must think non-defensively about yourself. Search for opportunities to learn from your problems. Commit to marking and celebrating your successes. It’s a road we travel not a place at which we arrive.
Don’t muddle on. If you are serious about how you do relationships, you will commit yourself and learn more, to finding more love.
