3. Have a life outside of the relationship.
Yes, you are in a relationship with another person and so you have to learn to share your life with someone else. But that doesn’t mean you should completely disregard and neglect your individual life as a result. You still have to have a good life outside of your relationship. You should still have your individual dreams and goals that are worth pursuing.
4. Don’t carry any grudges in the relationship.
Always learn to let go of any grudges. When you and your partner are trying to resolve an issue, then try your best to talk things out. Come to a resolution and put that issue to rest. If you are unable to find a resolution, then the best thing you can do is just let thing go. Don’t ever carry the weight of unresolved issues on your shoulders. You are only breeding contempt when you do so.
