Did you know? 6 out of 10 people are in unhappy marriages. While 4 out of 10 people constantly think about leaving their partners.
The pandemic forced us to venture into the untouched territories of relationships. While some families bonded and flourished, a few were hit by the harsh reality of incompatibility.
The undisclosed tension of couples turned into rants, cynical hoots and eventually, a sigh of regret couples accepted as fate. A few lived with it, a few moved on. But, fewer emerged to grow stronger by working on it. Let’s talk about this untold relationship secret here today…
THE SECRET OF A HEALTHIER LIFE IS A PEACEFUL HAPPY HOME
Walk into a house full of laughter or watch a family holding up during a crisis. What do you think they have in common? It’s togetherness. But, is it possible that all of them are alike? Highly unlikely. They stick together because of acceptance, affection, empathy and tolerance. That’s the case of a family. But, do we view our relationships as a couple in the same manner? Highly unlikely.
Studies show that happier couples displayed a great sense of empathy, agreement and a sense of individualism in their relationship. This means that to be a happy couple you need to acknowledge each other as individuals and work as a team.
HEALTHY RELATIONSHIPS ARE A WORK IN PROGRESS, FOREVER!
Living in nuclear families, healthy relationships aren’t a choice anymore. But, a need of the hour. Couples are evolving by the day. The new rich are people with aspirations, dreams and fewer liabilities.
#Couplegoals in 2012, were Hum Do Humare Do. Whereas, #couplegoals2023 are travelling across the world together or building a startup. So, you see the way we’ve changed as people and the manner our relationships have redefined themselves.
So, wouldn’t it be fair to say, as a couple we need to work on being together every day; evolving, changing, accepting that what we are today we wouldn’t be tomorrow. But, the only constant is a relationship-in-development.
AVOID THE TOXIC CURSE
As we grow, we can’t always be the best versions of ourselves. A few weeds come along. That my friend is toxicity. To have a happy relationship, you should avoid the horrors of developing toxic traits by reassessing your actions. To err is human. But, it can definitely be fixed.
