How To Prioritize Healthy Relationships In Time For The New Year
TIP 1: Take responsibility for your own happiness. Save yourself unnecessary hours of arguing by remembering this one rule: it's not up to anyone else to make you happy. Sure, you can choose to be in a relationship with this person and derive joy and happiness from it, but it's not anyone's responsibility to dig you out of a pitty-party pit every day. Remember that everyday, and you're well on your way to enjoying happy & healthier relationships into the new year.
TIP 2: Devote time to each other. Make spending time with your partner or important people in your life a priority, even if it's a little inconvenient at first. Relationships need shared experiences to grow, and you're demonstrating that nurturing yours is important to you. Trying to develop stronger working relationships, use networking opportunities and invest time in nurturing the relationship. (The same goes for interpersonal relationships as well.)
TIP 3: Develop better communication. Most people aren't born great communicators — it's something nearly everyone has to work at. Relay your expectations. If you expect your partner to do something, say it. Don't expect that he or she should read your mind, and don't rely on hints. Being clear about what you want gives your partner a fair shot at succeeding. Say "please" and "thank you." You should be able to let loose around your partner, so there's no need to worry about having impeccable manners all the time.Balancing healthy family and business relationships doesn't take holidays or vacations.
