We’ve all had our fair share of problems in our relationships. Relationships are made on strong bonds but the foundation lies of the 3 most basic Cs and a good balance of all three is what keeps a relationship going.
It’s the contribution of two people that makes or breaks a relationship. One thing you need to remember is that compromising doesn't mean sacrificing your independence, it just means to take a step back sometimes and let the situation take over. Sometimes the only way to end a disagreement is for one partner to compromise. If you both can’t learn to compromise, there will be things that will never get resolved. Learning when to compromise takes effort. The topic of discussion might not always be a small one like deciding the genre of the movie but learning how to compromise without putting your needs on the backseat is a skill you will definitely need.
Communication efficiently about your needs and wants in a relationship actually solves more than half of the problems. A good balance of healthy and clear communication gives you a clear idea about your relationship and your partner and helps you make decisions more efficiently. Keep in mind that non-verbal communications or actions also matter and do speak volumes. Communication becomes the most important aspect in romantic relationships. Couples that sweep disagreements and arguments under the rug are actually making the biggest mistakes. While not talking out your argument might help you forget the situation at that time but the problem will not get solved and will resurface and create bigger issues in your relationship.
Well what is a healthy relationship without commitment? You might as well be in a situationship and we all know how that ends.
Standing through thick and thin with each other and committing to each other means putting the other person and the relationship first during difficult times. If you are ready to commit to another person this means you are ready to give the other person and yourself the space to grow individually as well as together as a couple. Communicating and compromising are tasks in a relationship and if you aren’t committed to fixing the problems of your relationship, it will fall apart. Both partners will need to focus on being patient with each other and be sensitive to other’s needs if you want your relationship to work.
If you both are willing to put in the effort to fix your relationship then it can definitely be done. Relationships are all about teamwork and effort and finding the sweet balance between these 3 Cs of dating is where your effort lies.
