How Happy are you in Your Relationships?

We all want to have close relationships that matter – ones where we can be real, have fun and find meaning. But, how do we create those relationships? How do we make them last? How do we navigate the difficult times when we have conflict, disagree and don’t get along?

Relationships are dynamic, not static. They are living and will either grow or die, depending upon how well we take care of them. When we forget this, we will take them for granted believing they will be there no matter what we do.

Most relationships struggle because we fail to invest in them and also learn the skills required to keep them vibrant.

How to Make Effective Change

Consider the areas of your relationship you want to improve.
Then…
     1) Talk openly with your partner
     2) Discuss the areas you can both improve upon
     3) Create a plan and work it together

Success happens only when concrete action is taken toward a common goal. This requires living your relationships in a conscious manner with open, honest dialogue.
