1/8How to be in a positive and happy relationship
Relationships can be quite confusing and require tons of hard work from both the partners to make it work. You can’t force someone to love you, change their basic nature for you, nor should you tweak your core values, beliefs and ethics to make your partner happy. As the New Year is all about ushering in new opportunities, let go the past and starting afresh, here are seven tips to be in a happy, positive relationship.
2/8Stop being miserable!
If someone looks down at you, lowers your confidence or makes you feel miserable, you must consider walking out of that relationship. As simple as that! A relationship is not about unicorns and rainbows, but neither it is about any kind of negativity. It should bring happiness and comfort on most of the days and make you a better person. If it does not, you need to take charge of your life and stop pitying yourself. Someone has rightly said, “If you don’t like where you are, move. You are not a tree.”
5/8Learn to love yourself
We all have read several times that self-love is the best form of love but how many of us actually practise it? The logic is really simple. The way you treat yourself sets the standards for others. If you DO NOT value your emotional needs, take care of your mental health, pamper yourself and prioritise your needs, the people around you won’t either.
