Relationships aren’t as difficult as they seem – that is, of course, as long as you have the right relationship skills. Some of these skills may come quite natural to you; but all of them can be easily learned with a little thought and practice. Learning these 10-personality skills, or traits, can dramatically improve your relationships and create relationship success where there was once only failure. Think about, and practice, these keys to a great, balanced, and happy relationship:
6. Honesty (Openness/Intimacy/etc.)
7. Cooperation (Willingness/Flexibility/Team Work)
8. Respect (Respect your partner’s person, beliefs, past, path, and property)
10. Expressiveness (Expressions of Love/Compliments/Support/Encouragement)
Relationships are give-and-take; they require reciprocation to thrive and survive. This simply means that, if you want a good relationship, you must do your part to create a good relationship. As they say, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” You must literally become the change you wish to see in the world – and in your relationships. If you can assume these personality traits, and practice them for a while, you will soon develop them within yourself. When you have turned yourself into a person others would use this list of words to describe, you’ll never again have to worry about being happy in a relationship.
Though there is a little more to the story of a happy relationship than simply learning how to be kind, compassionate, considerate, gracious, appreciative, honest, and respectful; these characteristics are major benefits to anyone who possesses them – in any area of life. Picking the right partner, and learning how to be in THAT relationship, is another vital consideration; but once you have a partner, and things begin to change in the relationship, these skills/traits will help see you through the tough times, and create wonderful moments and memories for both of you.
