Many people associate happiness with money and many people associate it with relationships. They do not understand that they will not feel happy in their relationships as long as they are not happy themselves. Relationship problems are increasing rapidly and the main reason behind this is that we expect too much from the other person. We hope that they make us feel happy. We lie in our minds like, ‘If our partner buys us a dress, we will be happy’ or ‘If our partner is planning a surprise for us, then we will be happy’. This problem is not only with the couple but it is with each relationship whether it is a parental relationship or a sibling relationship or friendship.
Here are some facts below that can help you be happy:
Take care of yourself
Take care of yourself. Do not prioritize the other person over yourself and do not let him do the same. If you give too much priority to someone and you get nothing in return then you are preparing a recipe for your disappointment.
If you want to go somewhere, plan it yourself. Do not wait for your partner, parent or child to take you there. Let them know that they will like you if they come together. However there is no need to be disappointed if they refuse. Keep your plan going.
Give personal time
You need to give time to your partner and give your personal time to maintain a healthy relationship.
We set unrealistic expectations from other people in our lives and believe that if they truly love us, they will express it in the same way. This is almost certainly false. It only hurts relationships rather than doing any good. We need to understand that the only person who can make you feel really happy is yourself.
