Having a healthy, happy, and loving relationship is something that takes equal effort from two people. Both people need to be present and want their relationship to be successful. One-sided relationships never work and I’m hoping that by now, we all know that. The best relationships are based on a strong and healthy foundation built on things like honesty, trust, great communication, and things of the sort. But when push comes to shove, it’s essential to have each other’s back, and be there for one another through the good times and the bad. You can’t peace out and end things when there are issues or when things start to get rough. If you both want to be with each other bad enough, you have to do what it takes, and make it work. You need to be each other’s rock.
Create a healthy foundation so that your relationship is tight and solid. Don’t be wishy-washy or unsure about what you want with your partner. Know what you want, go after what you want, and work hard to maintain it after you get it. Don’t give up when things get hard, because of all of the hard work that it’s going to take. And that is what it’s gonna take—a lot of hard work. But when you’re really and truly in love with someone, you’re going to put that hard work into it, and you’re going to give it your all. You’re not going to give up when things get hard or challenging in life. And especially not when it comes to making your relationship work, and be happy and fulfilling.
Every relationship goes through ups and downs and hardships, but what’s most important, is to work hard towards improving things as you grow together. You need to be each other’s rock, strength, and backbone. You should feel confident in knowing that you’re committed to each other, and that you’re there through all of life’s challenges. Couples should never have to feel insecure that their partner is going to take off and start running when things get hard. This is why couples should explore a relationship and not simply run to the altar and get married. Get to know one another on a deeper level. Things take time to develop, and to the point where you know your partner is in it for the long-haul.
One of the best ways of knowing that your partner is there to stay, is when things get rough and you go through difficult times, do they leave or do they make you feel more secure in knowing that they’re right there by your side, right there to stay, and that they’re going to work hard as your partner towards making things better. Nothing is more valuable than when couples are able to give one another security in knowing that they’re not going anywhere, and that they’re there to stay. The security and stability that you give to each other can make you both feel that much more confident in your love for one another. This is what being each other’s rock and backbone is really all about.
