How to Have a Great Relationship

swans great relationship

When you experience challenges in your primary relationship it can impact all areas of your life, including the people around you. Building up resentment only makes you hyper-reactive and clouds your perspective.

So, when your relationship is feeling “off”, use these Principles for a Great Relationship to return to the foundation of love and partnership that will make your life feel blessed.

  • Be kind
  • Be honest
  • Listen deeply
  • Tell them you love them
  • Communicate clearly
  • Show your appreciation
  • Speak your truth in a loving way
  • Do what you say and say what you do
  • Be willing to compromise for the greater good
  • See the other person as the beautiful soul they truly are

If there is something in one of your relationships in your life that is upsetting you or not going well, the support of a professional coach can make a huge difference in how you feel and handle the situation.  

I would love to be the coach that helps you. You can contact me here to set up a call.

    That’s a great list. My husband and I set some rules before we were married about how to treat each other that are very similar to this. Love this.

    Simple and to the point. However, relationships become so complex when we don’t practice these things. I am curious why sex isn’t a part of this. We are a species created to reproduce. We desire attachment.

    Speak your truth in a loving way. Great advice! Share your thoughts, feelings and needs but also be kind.

      Elise: This is so important but not always easy to do. Sometimes my clients like to pick my brain for wording that speaks to their heart because I can be neutral when they feel triggered. Kindness is key in anything to do with relationships.
