Relationships are highly personal and outside intervention may not be required. But, there are times when stress gets on your nerves and the brain stops working. In such instances, tips from others can save your precious thin-skinned relationships. So, here we bring a few tips to relieve relationship stress.

  1. Treasure your Relationships – These days, we all are so busy in treasuring money & possessions that relationship takes a back seat. As soon as you neglect your relationship, voids start building. So, start valuing your relationship and partner from today onwards.
  2. Nurture it with Love & Care – A relationship is like a garden. The more you care of it, the better it blossoms. Nurture your relationship with love and care and you can reap benefits in the form of happiness for years after.
  3. Accept Reality – No person is perfect and so does relationships. If you expect your relationship to be perfect, it is nothing more than imprudence. Accept the flaws and learn to live with them happily instead of complaining all the time.
  4. Don’t Wait for Others – If you are waiting for some magic to happen to improve things, you may have to wait like forever. It is your relationship and you have to handle it yourself. Don’t wait for others, not even your partner, to bring back happiness in your life. Take the initiative and find your source of happiness.
  5. Assumptions are the Termites of Relationships – It is harsh but true that assumptions can kill a relationship. So, instead of assuming things you should try and talk to your partner about the issue that is bothering you. And trust me; the reality is far better than our false assumptions.
  6. Humans cannot read Minds – So you have been waiting for your partner to read your mind and solve the issues. Sorry but in that case your wait can turn out to be perennial. We are humans and we cannot read minds. But, if you put across your thoughts in clear words, we may find a solution quickly. Talk to your partner as much as possible and solve issues before they cause further harm.
  7. Forget & Forgive – The two ‘F’s – forget and forgive are key to happiness in a relationship. Instead of reminding your partner about his mistakes over and again, play the role of a forgiver.
  8. Promises are Not Meant to be Broken – If you keep your promises, you can keep stress at bay.
  9. Laugh, Smile, Play, Share – After all we too are childish at heart irrespective of our age, sex or status quo.
  10. Don’t Take Relationships for Granted – Never ever take a relationship for granted. Value it, nurture it, & protect it for lifetime.
