Every relationship starts with passion and keeps going with commitment. But, a lot of storms occur between the passion and commitment. Only that relationship is successful where you accept your partner as they are and keep falling in love with that person.
It’s true – relationships are a two-way street. In all successful relationships, there is a little give and take. This is because both the people in a relationship cares about how the other person feels and wants.
True love starts with making an effort to keep the other person happy. But you should always reciprocate the effort made by the other person who can be your parents, your wife, your children, and whoever you love and care about.
And remember love is a process that has no ending. It is a two-way street that is always being built.
Have you ever had a chance encounter with a stranger? I’ve often wondered why those experiences occur with one individual but not another.In her essay How to Change Your Life in One Second Flat, Katherine Schafler addresses her idea that we always ask four questions of everyone with whom we have connections.
These queries, which she claims are inspired by Maya Angelou, are ongoing appeals for acknowledgment and affirmation on a large and small scale.
Psychotherapist John Gottman refers to these demands as bids, which are “any attempt from one partner to another for attention, affirmation, or affection.”
Not every bid will be responded, but what counts is that you respond yes to the bid at least 85 percent of the time. This is true for all types of relationships, including transient ones.
The four questions are as follows:
Do you notice me?
2. Do you mind if I’m here?
3. Is that enough for you, or do you require something more from me?
4. Is it possible to tell that I’m significant to you by the way you look at me?
People think that trust is the most important quality they look for in a spouse, and trust is what makes human groups function.
In partnerships, trust is vital because it helps you to be more open and giving. If you trust your partner, you are more inclined to be forgiving of their flaws or annoying behaviours because you believe in them and know they have your back.
Mira Kirshenbaum says, “The biggest difference trust makes in any relationship – and not just an intimate one – is that you can relax, be open, be yourself.”
Mira Kirshenbaum is the author of eleven books that have been translated into over twenty languages, including the influential Too Good to Leave, Too Bad to Stay; Parent-Teen Breakthrough; Everything Happens for a Reason; and The Weekend Marriage. She is a two-time finalist for the Books for a Better Life award.
You may think that love is more important than money or anything else. And you may be right. But, please be careful about the kind of person you love. If you plan to spend your life with them, you might just spoil it if the person is wrong. So be careful about who you love!
Some lessons are learnt only after we have passed a certain stage in life. Learn these 5 lessons in life early in life so that you won’t have to regret before it’s too late.
Life teaches you many lessons, but it’s only wise that you learn some lessons when you are still young. You should learn these lessons when you are young enough to apply them. The problem with wisdom, and life lessons in general, is that we only learn them after we’ve needed them.
Given below are 5 lessons in life which if you learn early will save you from regretting when it’s too late to put them into action.
One of those lessons says “It is better to invest in relationships than in mutual funds.”
Many people place a higher value on friends than on family. The same people regret doing so when their mates and buddies abandon them. I believe that it is preferable to invest in both family and friends rather than mutual funds or businesses. Because the happiness you will receive in return for investing in relationships is something that money can never bring.
We all know that business is better than a job. Many of us have even thought several times in our lives about taking the leap into the world of business. But, we are stopped because of several reasons including a lack of confidence.
This lack of confidence not just stops us from starting a business, but also from many other things, which include learning something new. Our mental growth is inhibited when this happens. But, we are not to be blamed, because the parents of many people fail to imbibe confidence in them when they are small.
Do you want your children to face the same problems that we have faced because of the lack of confidence? No, no loving parent would ever want that.
So what do we do? This article is just about imbibing confidence in our children and raising them as men and women who are stopped by nothing when they want to do something. That includes starting a new business and learning something new. Being confidence is the first step toward success. So let us learn how to raise a successful future generation.
Not every kid naturally has confidence. However, parents can help them grow those muscles.
Anyone who has ever tried to teach a youngster to tie his/her shoes understands how long it takes to correct it—and how much frustration they may feel.
But finally, the time comes when it clicks.
And when their mistakes transform to wins and their patience pays off, a small amount of trust in their ability is built up.
Some children are born with confidence. However, confidence for others is a muscle which must be strengthened.
One of the best ways to do this is to unconditionally love our children in spite of everything and let them know you do it. Another way is to tell your kids ‘They are capable of doing amazing things.’
Here are some more ways parents can help boost their children’s confidence and perhaps even their own. Who knows, your child may become the next Bill Gates or Jeff Bezos and credit you for it.
A few tips to raise self-assured children:
Demonstrate confidence in oneself.
Even if you aren’t feeling it!
Don’t get upset if you make a mistake.
Encourage them to experiment with new things.
Allow children to fail.
Assist children in discovering their true calling.
