2 quick questions…
How’s your relationship with your family?
Have you spent quality time with your friends recently?
It’s no secret that juggling a career, family and friends, can often be challenging… so instead of struggle to survive it, why not focus on making your relationships stronger, longer-lasting and more fulfilling?
If you’d like to turn a good relationship into one that’s more exciting, honest and joyful, then these 3 powerful tips will surely come in handy:
Tip 1 – Focus on the Positive
Acknowledge that all the people in your life are there for a reason and they all have many qualities and lessons that you can learn from them. If there’s someone in your life that you feel resentment towards, try the following exercise…
Close your eyes and think back to a meaningful and joyful moment that you both shared. Allow yourself to feel that same joy and love that you felt back then and allow that moment to strengthen your relationship with that person.
This simple exercise will help to remind you of why you connected with this person in the first place and allow you to let go of anything standing in the way of a peaceful relationship.
Tip 2 – Release the Need to Change the Other Person
One of the most important things to remember is that we cannot change anyone but ourselves, and since we all want to be loved and accepted for who we are, then we must take the first step to respect and value people “just the way they are”.
Tip 3 – Get to Know Yourself Better
This may be the most important tip if you’re looking to build or strengthen relationships. If you don’t know your own needs and limitations, then you may be at risk of using relationships as a way to validate yourself.
