Be honest with each other. You need to be able to be open-minded and listen to your partner at all times. Even though your schedule may be busy, take the time to talk to each other every day. Being open with each other will strengthen your emotional connection too and bring you closer together.

3. Don't neglect the small gestures of daily life

Go to bed at the same time to share a moment of tenderness, hold hands and kiss your partner every day. But also, say sweet things like "I love you" and "have a good day" every morning and "good night" in the evening. Also, don't forget to check up on each other during the day.

4. Trust each other fully

Putting your trust in your partner is hugely important. Avoid falling into the trap of being jealous and choose to forgive things rather than be ragingly suspicious.

5. Be proud of your relationship

Displaying your shared tenderness in public is important, it provides a very pleasant feeling. Who doesn't love a bit of PDA every now and again?

6. Believe in your relationship

If everything is going well between you, there is no point in thinking of every dramatic scenario under the sun. Instead, go with the flow and don't be pessimistic. By relieving yourself of this fear that something bad is going to happen, your heart will be much lighter, and you will be filled with happiness and serenity.

Good relationships involve emphasizing the positive points and not the negative ones. Doing this will help you move forward much faster together. Focusing on the good points will bring you closer together and help you appreciate each other's worth.

8. Enjoy yourself to the fullest

Don't hesitate to go out, travel, and live unique moments with your partner. By sharing common memories, your relationship will go from strength to strength.

9. Be a unique couple

All couples have their own set of characters and their own story. Therefore, you need to write yours without comparing yourself to others. It's this uniqueness that makes a relationship beautiful.

10. Be your true self

Don't change for your partner, and choose to be yourself by spending time doing the things that you love. Take care of yourself and remember to show them your burning desire daily. Although there is no one recipe for a successful relationship, these tips can help you build a strong union filled with love.

What are the 3 most important things in a relationship?

Love must be built. And for a couple to be fulfilled and happy, it must rest on fundamental pillars. If one of the partners is no longer stable or breaks down, the couple's happiness can suffer. But what are the main pillars of a couple?

1) Similar future projects

Of course, it is important that you have plans together, but it is much better to want them at the same time. Your projects must be built according to your wishes and your values (wanting children, getting married...).

2) Trust

This is another essential pillar of a relationship. The person you trust tells you things clearly and criticizes you if necessary. But in no way does he or she want to change you. It is also important that you learn to trust each other. To do this, set boundaries for yourself.

3) Passion

If most of the time the beginning of a relationship is synonymous with absolute happiness, over time, a routine can set in. For a couple to last, it is important that they maintain a certain intimacy. A date night just for the two of you once a week, weekends alone with your partner to reconnect or one-on-one time are all habits that can be put in place to strengthen your intimacy and maintain the passion between you.

Editor's opinion: Working on yourself is also a good start

If you want to address issues within your union, sometimes looking in the mirror is the most productive step to take. When you become aware of your weaknesses and look for the best in your partner, magic happens and optimism takes over. Your partner will feel much better because they will feel appreciated. Both of you will feel more motivated to change the way you do things to bring you more happiness together.

🤗 Understand yourself, accept yourself, be happy... Let’s do it here and now!

6 Differences Between Being Self-Centered And Being A Narcissist

When it comes to mental health disorders, the parameters of each condition often seem blurry, and this explains why many of us have trouble identifying them. Plus, certain disorders frequently encompass similar symptoms and traits, making recognizing and therefore understanding them even more complicated. Let’s take being selfish and having a narcissistic personality disorder, for example.

That being said, when you dig a little deeper, the differences do become more and more apparent.

How Do You Know A Narcissist Is Cheating?

Narcissism is wholly incompatible with healthy relationships, which goes some way in explaining why people with this personality disorder always believe the grass is greener elsewhere.

However, they are so cunning and crafty that catching them out and confirming your intuitions is no easy feat.

Now, whilst their torment underway, it will no doubt be one of the most harrowing things you can mentally go through. However, when the abuser decides they've had enough of you, they'll halt their horrific abuse in a heartbeat and look for someone else.
