Creating, building and growing relationships is a wonderful thing. I am referring to any kind of relationship: friends, family, work, and intimate. Relationships can begin easily enough, but maintaining a good, healthy, strong relationship takes just a little know-how.
First, begin by watching yourself as you interact in your relationships. Ask yourself how you feel in your relationships. Are you communicating your needs to the other person? And are you taking care of your needs as well? Are you treating the other person as you would like to be treated?
If something is missing or something is bothering you, it's you who needs to make a shift. Stay positive and do little checklist on yourself. Make sure you first know what it is you want. Then look at how you are communicating with the other person. This is so important. Do your best to communicate; never assume anything. And never expect the other person to assume anything about you.
Then look at how you treat the other person. Is that how you want to be treated? And please, don't forget about you. Be sure to include yourself in your relationship(s). Let the other person know what you like, and what you don't like. Stay positive and do this without pointing out their faults.
You can create, build and grow your relationships to be anything you want them to be. Your relationships can feed you, instead of draining you. Give it a go this month, and I'll bet you'll see a difference by next month.
