Relationship – Panacea for blissful life
Relationships are something to relate with. It may be a person or an object or any living thing in the world. For some, creating a new relationship is a bit tough. For many, the creation of new relationships is easier and much faster as well. But the challenging part is to maintain it forever. For the relationship to last, you need to devote a lot of time to nurture it with your kind words and deeds.
Nurturing the relationship is a long and challenging part which needs consistent efforts. For the plants to grow, we plant it first and take utmost care for its growth by watering it regularly, adding nutrients as required and ensuring adequate sunlight as well. Relationship growth also, in a similar way, needs regular care and support.
Many relationships break because of lack of love, understanding and tolerance. Love, the most profound emotion, is the prime factor in any relationship. When you are in deep love with someone, you see things beyond your boundaries and focus only on the happiness of the other person. Love always leads to strengthening the relationship. Pure love without reciprocation is the key for a long lasting relationship.
Heart should be the dominant factor than the brain in the interactions for the relationship to be healthy and sustain for a long time.
Love, trust, Integrity and open communication are the primary pillars to build good relationships. Walking through their mind is more important than walking with them towards greater understanding of their plight, especially in tough times. Conflicts or misunderstandings are likely to arise in any relationship. But the catch is how we overcome by seeing such adverse situations with an open mind and in the right perspective. When focus is on the real issue and the ways and means of resolving it without hurting the ego of the other person is important. Even, when there is disagreement, it has to be in an agreeable manner. You should be the coolant to absorb the heat in such heated conversations or arguments and provide a soothing effect to alleviate the suffering of the other person.
Little practice of the above will go a long way in making your relationship meaningful and fulfilling. Empathy and emotional connect bring a drastic transformation in your relationship. Your unconditional affection and support in adverse situations will instil a greater level of confidence and further the relationship towards a greater feel and joy.
Research findings indicate that relationships increase longevity and reduce stress levels significantly. Add on to that, one derives more joy and happiness in good relationships. Healthy relationships give immense pleasure and added strength to meet life challenges with more confidence.
The essence of life lies in good relationships. Let us extend our arm of love to create new relationships and enrich our life with comfort and happiness. Love is the panacea to cure all the relationship aberrations. When you win over the hearts of the people, their brains will follow. It is an undeniable fact that a relationship is the strong root to hold upon and grow for a blissful life.
Great relationship is first to appreciate the similarities and next respecting the differences.
