How to Firm up Your Relationships


Relationships are vital to the survival and growth of individuals and nations. This has prodded relationship experts to recommend some practices that are conducive to sustaining lasting friendships. These have been time and again proven to be capable of building strong sympathies among friends.

Bonding with friends enhances relationships

‘Bonding’ is obviously the practice of creating or strengthening the sympathetic interaction among people. Sometimes, these sessions may be studiously organized. At other times they can be casual parties. Most of the time, bonding is done on the weekends. People discuss their difficulties and successes during the past week. Sometimes the sessions may be a month apart as when friends live a distance from one another.

These events are held in a private space with a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere. People come to these sessions as well to unravel all their tensions before their friends as to communicate their happy feelings. These meetings may be attended both by tears and laughter. The experience is very enlightening because people get the chance to look into the thoughts and emotions of their peers. As a result their own sensitivities are enhanced. With constant practice, the ability to deal with others is improved.

Yielding when it is called for in relationships

The willingness to come to half-way resolutions to conflicts of interest is important to make any relationship last. All parties involved in an association have to be mature enough to see the point of the other party. The capacity to empathize with those whom one associates daily is indispensable for sustaining good feeling.

Everyone should be given the chance to grow in relationships

Sometimes people base their interaction on a master-slave relationship. The dominant partner lords it over the less aggressive one. Because there is a certain extent of compatibility present, these types of interaction can last for a time. It will, however, produce no good effects for any of the participants.

For one, the aggressive partner’s attention is never called to the fact that for him to develop as a human being, he has to allow others the chance to develop also. The meek guy, on the other hand, will never find the courage to assert his rights and defend his opinions.

A relationship where no one attains to some degree of personal development will sooner or later break up. The dominant person will eventually tire of ordering someone who never shows the slightest resistance to him. And the submissive partner will also reach the limits of his patience. Both will end up looking for someone else.

The need to help others change for the better

Good relationships are not only give and take associations. There may be occasions when one partner is down, neither able to give nor to take. In such crucial moments, the willingness of the other party to extend emotional support and encouragement is vital for their relationship to continue.

Courage and patience are needed during the times that a relationship is on stony ground. The need to remind your partner when he or she is out of line will require inner strength. And then, you need your patience while he/she is striving to correct his/her defects. Patience will allow you to have high hopes for your partner.
