Recently we posted an article that posed the question of whether you treat your partner as well as you could. The truth is that no matter how good of a partner you are, when it comes to someone you love deeply, you can never love too much and there’s always room to love better. Because love sees no bounds, there’s always room for more. How well are you able to love your partner?
If you want to open your heart space up to love your significant other better, there are ways that you can do that.
Seven Ways to Love Your Partner Better
Work on your intimacy problems.
We all have intimacy problems. Somewhere somehow deep down inside you struggle with intimacy on some level. If you really want to be the best spouse you can be, at some point, you will have to go deep into your psyche and start working on overcoming these issues so there is more room for love. No one ever said it would be easy.
Love them in their love language.
We all experience love in different ways, find what way your partner experiences love most naturally and go out of your way (and possibly even your comfort zone) to love them the way they want to be loved.
Always be kind to your significant other. Don’t reveal your negative thinking even though it’s so natural to talk to your spouse about everything in your mind. Go out of your way to make them feel good about themselves. Show them why you love them.
No one is perfect, especially when it comes to romantic relationships. Try not to hold resentments about things that have been said or done, forgive your partner and move on to a good mental space where you can share the happiness and leave all else behind.
Be less critical.
Oh, this one is soooo hard. It’s easy to be critical of the people you love the most because you want to see them make the right decisions in their lives. You want them to be the best people they can be. You want to see the person you fell in love with and they’re not always there and that can be infuriating. Criticism is probably one of the most destructive things in a relationship. Try to stay positive and tell your partner what you love about them instead. Relationships are all about sacrifice don’t forget.
Focus on the good.
That brings us to the next one, which is to focus on the good things. When we focus on negative aspects of our relationship (and every relationship has them) we make them more powerful than they should be. The same goes for the good. Good and bad is relative to how much power we decide to breathe into it.
Make amazing memories.
Time is fickle, but good memories will last a lifetime. Go out of your way to make amazing memories with the people you love. Write letters and cards and save them. Take lots of photos. Create albums for your children. Just document everything and remember everything. Take pride and joy in the good times. Use them as a foundation to build a meaningful relationship.
Relationships have their ups and downs, but if you take the time to allow the good to resurface and the bad to stay buried, it’s much easier to love better. Good luck and don’t forget to comment below and let us know what worked for you! How are you going to start to love your partner better?
