Quick Tips For Building a Positive Relationship

Everyone strives to build a positive relationship with those that are close to them. Believe it or not, we all want to be loved unconditionally and have safe loving relationships with those that mean most to us. And although we may think that those wants come naturally with our most stable relationships, the truth is, every relationship requires maintenance every now and again.

When it comes to building a positive relationship, having ups and downs is going to be unavoidable. You will be surprised to learn that going through the challenges and overcoming them can actually bring your relationships closer together and further the strength that is already present. Building a positive relationship can be a challenge, but with a few tips in mind, we can surely grow our relationships to that level of positivity we desire.

To ensure a good relationship between two people, both parties need to be open to each other’s outlooks. It’s not good when you both can’t express your different opinions and understand each other’s points of view. Keeping this in mind, it’s also not good to disagree with one another 80% of the time. The old saying is that opposites do attract, and while I find this can be true, keep in mind that there should be some sort of familiar grounds you can both balance on to help understand each other.

After you find balance between one another, realize that a positive relationship requires love and understanding from both people, it will not work if it is one sided. Give and take from both sides is paramount to its success.

With the give and take of a relationship comes patience. You are bound to have disagreements from time to time. There are some people who believe that they never argue within some of their relationships, and while this may be true, it’s actually healthy for you to disagree from time to time. Just remember that some relationships have moments that are tense, and whether this is due to outside conflict (i.e. stress) or actual problems within the relationship, remember that it is only temporary and that your relationship is worth fighting through any disagreement for. In some situations, it’s necessary to either find a solution to the problem or agree to disagree, without getting angry, and move on.

With this in mind, also remember that a positive relationship is not formed overnight and takes a certain amount of time to develop. Be patient and don’t push your relationship beyond where it is ready to be, such as a long term commitment from someone you have recently started dating. While it may feel like it’s going well, a positive relationship needs time to develop and grow in many areas, such as trusting one another. You should always allow all of your relationships to take their natural course and ensure nothing is being forced.

This being said, remember to give each other plenty of space. Allow others in your life to spend time with others and show that you trust your relationship enough that you don’t need to overcrowd one another. Some people can become too clingy and distrusting of others, unwilling to “share” them. This is not going to build a positive relationship as you run the risk of smothering your partner and potentially losing them altogether.

All in all, the final key to a positive relationship is to forget about thinking negatively. Try not to become jealous or have negative thoughts. If you do find yourself in a similar situation, reevaluate your relationship to determine how you can salvage it. The only way to build a positive relationship is to be just that, positive. Spending time with each other, doing things for each other and doing things together will ensure you are well on your way to building a wonderful, loving positive relationship that you both cherish and will hopefully last a lifetime.
