Being Proactive is Key
The way we show up in relationships is ultimately what makes them easier.
It takes some upfront proactive work but can save a lot of unnecessary time and drama along the way.
Relationships need both independence to breath and togetherness to thrive.
Finding the right balance of space and connectedness makes relationships operate more easily.
2. Regular Expressions of Love
Consistently demonstrating love through words, actions, quality time & gifts helps relationships function at their best.
3. Effective Communication
When we invest in mindful listening and speaking we show that we're committed to having the best relationship possible and in doing the work along the way that makes that happen.
4. Resolving Conflict
When we allow ourselves to have conflict and resolve it well we do the maintenance of the relationship that increases intimacy and prevents resentment from building.
