So you think you have a good idea where you and your spouse are in your relationship? Or do you? If you do not, maybe it's time to find out. After all, there's always room for improvement no matter how good your relationship is. If you're looking at getting a perfect score for your relationship, you've come to the right place. We will begin exploring together some great ideas to attaining that perfect score!
One way of seeing where your relationship is going is to take a piece of paper with pen in hand and write down any area you might think needs improving. Once you have these in front of you, take them to your spouse and discuss them. Just remember not to be afraid and remind yourself just how great your relationship is already! Your goal is to make it perfect.
For example, you may be the one that drives the car all the time not realizing they want to drive once in awhile. Ask them and see if this is true; if so, let them drive! This may take some doing, especially if it's been this way for some time. Another idea to consider is your sleeping arrangements. Is it possible that your spouse would rather sleep on your side of the bed? If so, would it hurt to switch sides? It may well be that they would feel safer or sleep better, both resulting in good changes.
So many times in a relationship we take each other for granted. Without thinking, we just go about our day unaware that we are stressing our partner. We need to be aware of that and apply what truly successful relationships have going for them that makes them successful: communication!
Unfortunately, there can be some pain involved as you make each other vulnerable to your feelings. But seriously, without any pain we would not know pleasure. The fact is, you are both individuals before you met as well as after you married. This being the case, knowing this can empower you to more often than not achieve a perfect score. As you look around you, it becomes increasingly clear that the most successful relationships are built on communication. If you really want to do whatever you can in order to find yourself getting a perfect score for your relationship, you must be willing to change without giving up who you are. Trust me, you can do this!
One of the most successful ways of doing this is by setting goals instead of placing blame. Many times you will find, for example, you finish each other's sentences. This is not a problem; it is a compliment! It reveals just how well you know each other. And because of this, you need to be focusing on building each other up not not singing each other down. By realizing this you can help each other to become the best you can be together.
