At each phase of your life, you need someone to be there for you because life is not an island. It is a well known fact that the quality of your relationship determines the outcome of your life. Therefore, in all your gettings, get a quality relationship because many homes and lives are ruined as a result of these difficiencies. For instance, a young woman in her early 20s confided in me that her misfortunes in life are traceable to the poor relationship she had with her parents while growing up.
Here are some of the 9 Keys that will help you develop and sustain a perfect Relationship:
1. SPOT A PERSON WITH SAME VALUES AS YOU
A person who shares same values as you will effortlessly respect your choices and opinions.
2. TAKE TIME TO STUDY THE INDIVIDUAL
No matter how closely related your values are, there are few gray areas that still needs clarifications. Robert Grain perfectly captured these in his book ‘The laws of human nature’.
3. RESPECT THE PERSON OR WILL-BE PARTNER
That you are wealthier or more exposed and educated does not make you indispensable in the life of a person you have no respect for. Remember, respect is reciprocal.
4. SPEND QUALITY TIME TOGETHER
Your friend should be in the best position to inconvenience you when and where necessary. Spending quality time with each other helps you bond more thereby making your relationship wax stronger.
5. COMMUNICATE OFTEN
Healthy communication breeds better understanding. Endeavour to communicate often to have a solidified relationship.
6. GIVING FREE ALMS
There is never a better time to surprise your partner with gifts, no matter how little they may be. Here is a case of two friends who were almost devoured by hunger. They both went scavenging for food in different directions. At the end of their voyage, one found garri and the other found water. They smoked the garri together and enjoyed it more than fried rice and chicken put together.
7. LEARN TO APOLOGISE WHEN YOU DO WRONG
Having extremely high opinion about yourself blures your sense of judgement about life. Saying ‘sorry’ when you wrong your partner does not make you less of yourself but rather a hero and a living legend.
8. ALWAYS SHOW GRATITUDE
When you are too big to appreciate small things, you will be too small to appreciate big things. More so, grateful people are graceful people. Always strive to thank your partner when a favour is done you.
9. ALWAYS PRAY FOR ONE ANOTHER
Your intercession at the place of prayers contribute immensely to the well-being of your relationship as no progress is made in delusionment and uncertainties.
At a time when life seems to be lovelless and hopeless, is when you need each other the most to help build the paradise of your dreams. Make an effort to develop and sustain your relationship today.
