“Build your relationships like the great pyramids of Egypt, though they might take time but the carefully built shall live to tell the tale.”
Relationships play an important role in everyone`s life. Relationships are like roller coaster rides, they go through many phases and stages and we need to cope up with them to maintain a healthy relationship. No relationship can start off perfect; you need to earn your relationship. Both you and your partner need to make the effort to keep the flame of love burning forever.
Research shows more than 90% of those in troubled relationships are convinced the primary cause of their problem is their partner. It is sad but true that most couple simply surrender after making the commitment with the person they love. A busy lifestyle just makes it impossible for people to spare time for each other. I have encountered many people in my life who even don’t know the importance of communication in their relationship. If you consider some of the reasons for divorce, you would find them to be pretty trifling.

For example, I came across a couple that wanted a divorce because they hardly managed to make time for each other and thus their relationship never grew. Do you think that people who cannot manage their time now, will they ever be able to maintain a better or healthy relationship unless they realize their mistake? These small things which results in separations, matters the most and one needs to be very careful about them. Remember, relationships are something which will grow and change over time, we all should be vigilant about it and cope with it.
To create a healthy relationship is just like baking a cake, you must have the right ingredients, in right amount and you must put them in right order as well. The ingredients of a healthy relationship are as follows:
- Common Relationship Problems
There are times in all relationships when things don’t run smoothly. Often, this is because people have conflicting expectations, are distracted with other issues, or have difficulty expressing what is on their minds in ways that other people can really hear and understand what is being said. Sometimes they just don’t know what to do to make a good relationship.
Open communication is an integral part of every relationship. Honest direct and assertive communication is important, if you are having a communication gap, if you can’t communicate with your partner, you will never give each other a chance to come closer. Communication helps you to understand each other better.
