Romantic relationships, no matter how badly you want them to remain all good and easy, encounter hurdles. Relationships without any problems may not be stressful, but they cannot be considered as completely healthy. Couples need to have these little downs in between all their ups for them to become much stronger. When small arguments escalate to something truly unnerving and disastrous, some decide to bring their issues to the experts while others simply deal with them on their own and go on a spiritual retreat together.
So what are the things you need to look out for if you want your relationship to last:
1. Letting your insecurities get to you. – Fear, combined with other negative emotions such as frustration and anger, can destroy the peace and happiness that you cherish in your relationship. Allowing yourself to believe that you won’t be able to meet other people’s expectations can cause ugly confrontations between you and your partner. Comparing your achievements to his can also cause a rift to develop between the two of you. Try focusing on the good things that are already present and see this get reflected in your partner’s actions. Going on a spiritual retreat is great because it can be the start of your healing process.
2. Following other couples’ life stories. – Don’t put your relationship in a mold. You have a different story to tell to the world with your partner. Don’t convince yourself that just because you saw your parents end a certain way, then there’s a high chance for you to be the same. Embrace each other’s individuality and work together in creating your own fairy tale. Participate in a couple’s retreat and try to rediscover more wonderful things about each other.
3. Not investing enough quality time – No matter how busy you are, please don’t forget that you have someone in your life seeking your attention and love as well. Prioritizing your career is good, but constantly making your partner feel secure is even better. Neglect is almost the same as rejection — both will make your partner feel unimportant. You can spend quality time together by engaging in activities provided in spiritual getaways. Spiritual retreats revive the sense of belonging-ness and camaraderie that most couples tend to lose after being drowned in their hectic schedules. Experience something together and you’ll surely feel fulfilled.
4. Taking things for granted – Don’t forget to accompany the sweet words with actions. Even if you say those 3-magical words every day, if your partner doesn’t feel it then it’s useless. Make sure that you stay connected to your lover and convey, even in small gestures, your feelings of affection. Bring your sweetheart to a Sedona-inspired spiritual getaway and shower your partner with love.
