Relationship goals for the New Year

Relationship goals for the New Year

Relationship goals for the New Year

We don’t want to sound preachy, but often, the one thing that couples in turbulent relationships do not realize, is the need to look within. Blaming the office, extra work, a poor-work-life balance, jealousy and other culprits may work on the surface, but issues often take deeper root than expected. We play Agony Aunt by answering (hopefully) the reason behind a few of those woes, thereby chartering a course for you to walk on…

Have more communication: This is key. All those silly squabbles and disagreements can just as easily be sorted if you talk it out. Send a timely text or call to your partner which will make facilitate sorting out matters.

No room for a third angle: Okay, so perhaps one of the issues you have been facing is your partner complaining about you spending too much time with a colleague or talking to an ex. Make sure he or she knows all about why you are doing so and never let another person into your equation. Friends are okay, anything else is not. And don’t forget, in today’s times, even those online flirty texts equal cheating.

If you  fight, keep it healthy: Absolutely no relationship has smooth sailing. Arguments and fights are bound to crop up, but they don’t all have to be ugly. Try and put the conversation on the back burner for the moment if you both are heated up. Sleep over any fight and come back to it refreshed and with a gentler outlook, is the mantra.

No space: This is another area that is also often swept under the carpet. Couples tend to take each other’s space for granted, not happy to give one partner the room to maneuver. Do not go down that road this year. Allow for space which will help your relationship thrive.
