Who else who least knows a couple that you see passing the course of time as if they were in their first moments. They radiate something that goes far beyond mere well-being and having fun: what’s behind it all is shared happiness.
The eternal question that many ask is “what is the secret?”. The answer does not include magic formulas, but if you want to know how to maintain a happy relationship, here we reveal some of its keys.
How to keep a happy relationship
If you want to discover where the happiness of the happiest couples is born, here are some of their secrets:
1. Share to connect and build together
Whether it is moments, hobbies, trips, games, dreams … whatever, the fact is that any of these elements is perfect, because it acts as a connector between the two members of the couple.
There are those who are lucky enough to share hobbies with their life partner that provides them with pleasant moments to enjoy together or those who are also united by strong ideals that they defend with the same emphasis. In any case, it is about discovering those things that bring us even closer to the person with whom we want to maintain a happy relationship as a couple.
A relationship in which the joint projects of the couple are cultivated while the personal interests of each continue to be addressed turns the passing days into the construction hand in the hand of something meaningful for both of them. Visualize the life that you would like to share with each other and don’t let it become a dream; turn it into a plan to follow until it materializes.
And if you also look for the way in which one can help the other to achieve their own personal goals, the ties that will unite you will be more than strong. That is one of the secrets of happy couples.
2. Solid confidence
One of the fundamental pillars on which a healthy, beautiful, and lasting relationship is built is the trust that is woven between the two people that make up the couple. It should be seen as the existing bridge between the two members built with the same commitment on the part of both, so that the link between one and the other can be perceived as a common space to tread without fear, with conviction.
3. Communication (and it is not just talking)
In the broadest sense of its meaning. It is not just about exchanging ideas verbally because even the gestures and expressions that accompany each explanation we give convey much more.
That is why we also have the looks that say so much without the need for words, hugs that bring together where the phrases do not reach and we expand the registers that we use to communicate with our partner to maintain a happy and long-term relationship.
Perhaps it should be point number one, or perhaps it should not even be mentioned for taking it for granted, since there is no possibility of having a relationship based on love without respect for both parties.
Respect begins by accepting your partner and his peculiarities as well as his own limits. It is closely linked to trust and the way you consider and treat your life partner, which should be comparable to the way you want to be treated.
5. Fall in love with our partner over and over again
It is so common to associate the feeling of butterflies in the stomach with the first moments of a relationship that it is almost automatic to say that it only happens at the beginning: let’s not allow it. Let’s fall in love with our partner over and over again.
Just because the infatuation phase alters our body chemistry and makes us feel as if we are in a permanent state of euphoria does not mean that, once it subsides, the moments of high shared with our partner will go down in history.
The key: be proactive and use your imagination. Let’s remember how we felt and everything we did to enjoy together with our partner in those moments. Why not resume that drive that will surely bring new moments to enjoy and remember together?
Spend a few moments to reconnect with those feelings of that time that were making you more and more accomplices of each other and take the opportunity to share it with your partner from love and with a positive tone, not regretting what it was; If you want, you can return those unique moments of connection. Why give up maintaining a happy relationship if it is within our power? It is a matter of strongly desiring it.
And finally, something that establishes itself as a kind of protective halo for the well-being of the happiest couples: the warmth that mediates between them.
It is something that is in their own ways, opting for the warmth of the forms on each shared occasion, because each moment counts. Why not create that warm climate when you are with the person you love, resort to tenderness and affection?
