Do you live a beautiful healthy relationship with your partner, but you would sometimes like to be happier in your relationship? Know one thing: anyone can find problems if they look for them, and no relationship is perfect, because no one is perfect! No, not even you, not even your darling. With this in mind, here are our tips, 7 ways to be happier as a couple:
1 / Stop nitpicking
Do you like your partner? If so, then don’t constantly focus on those little things that annoy you with him. After a certain time of relationship, it is not uncommon to see only the faults in the other! And why not focus instead on the things you like about him/her? Instead of getting upset with your spouse because of such or such a thing that he did not do, thank him rather for the small gestures, attentions and services that he rendered!
2 / Be grateful
The positive brings the positive! Give yourself the right to be happy to have a good relationship: see everything you live with your sweetheart, and remember only the good things. Do not clutter your mind with dark ideas that will gradually eat away at your happiness!
3 / Be respectful, always
Learn to be happier with your partner by treating him the same way you treat your friends: with respect! You are a couple, you are a team ! And the simple act of treating your lover as your best friend can really make your relationship healthier and more joyful (obviously don’t forget that he/she stays much more than that! )
4 / Declare and redeclare your love
We tend, over the months, over the years, to no longer say or show what seems obvious to us: little gestures of affection, “I love you” are becoming increasingly rare… Make them come back in force! !! Open up to your partner, tell him how much you love him, how much he/she makes you happy every day! No need to break your head for that, be yourself, and do not hesitate to multiply these little attentions that are sure to do a lot of good for your relationship. Make it your mission to seduce your darling!
5 / have fun
Who says being a couple means being constantly serious? Become real children again! Make idiots together! See if you can make the other person laugh by telling him jokes, watch a good movie together, make a tickle fight, a duffel fight! Stop taking yourself seriously all the time!
6 / Stop always wanting to be right
If you are one of those people who likes to have the last word, change your attitude immediately! We often have a Manichean vision of the world, where everything is either true or false. But your darling is different from you! And understanding that he/she can perceive things differently from you is the key to a happy relationship. This does not mean that you should never disagree either! In case of conflicts, simply say that you respect his point of view on the issue and accept that it may be his truth, even if your opinion differs.
7 / Choose to be happy!
Many people say that happiness is a choice. This does not mean that you will wake up one happy morning because you have decided! No! Rather, it is about making the choice to do the things that will make you happy. We often have the desire, the need to control everything in our relationship, to the detriment of letting go, and to choose simple happiness. Have the courage to change the things you can change, the serenity to accept the things you cannot change, and the wisdom to distinguish the two.
