As we ponder on what it would mean to find someone you love and who loves you just as much, we also take into consideration what it would take to reach the ideal place where you have found ultimate love.
Love comes in many forms, through family, friends but for the basis of this article we’ll be referring to intimate relationships. Let’s have a look at what we should or not do if we want to cement our space at ‘Love Lives Here’.
-Treat your partner the way you did at the start of the relationship if you don’t want to see it end: As the saying goes ‘Complacency breeds contempt’. Your partner should never feel as though you are taking them for granted, remain consistent in expressing your love language.
-Do learn to compromise when needs be: When you come together with your partner, you come as two people with set ideals but if the relationship is to work the couple needs to learn when and how to compromise.
-Don’t allow jealousy or insecurities to overcome you:A little bit of jealous is healthy for any relationship but be careful it doesn’t get too excessive. Trust for your partner will enable you to avoid insecurities and jealousy.
-Do have realistic expectations of your partner: What makes us exciting as human beings is our uniqueness and this enables us to learn a thing or two from each other. This is also true for intimate relationships, instead of putting pressure on your partner, appreciate them for who they are.
-Don’t rely on your partner for your happiness: The misconception is that as people we complete each other but you should be complete when you go into a relationship. This will help you avoid making the mistake of putting the responsibility of your happiness on your partner.
These are just some pointers that could help your relationship flourish and get to a point of ultimate love. Remember Ultimate Love is not a destination, it’s a place where you and your partner are continuously growing and bringing the best out of each other.
