The quality of a relationship is contingent upon the desire and willingness to invest time and effort.
If you're placing the sole responsibility on your loved one for improvement, without doing your part, the relationship will deteriorate.
In order for a relationship to strengthen and grow, both parties must commit to working together, for the common goal.
What if you make the first move?
Don't hesitate. Open your heart, listen intently and show that you care.
Sometimes your opinions will differ, but the focus should always be on what is most important; loving each other all of the time.
Follow These Suggestions:
* Give thanks for all of the experiences you've shared together.
* Share with each other all aspects of life, speak candidly and listen with your heart.
* Tell one another what you need and do your best to provide.
* Be present. Make eye contact. Show kindness.
This will open the line of communication, promoting empathy and closeness with the one that you love.
Remember, love is a choice you must make everyday.
