07-29-2014 / Celebrating our 34th monthsary. ♥ Thank You Lord for guiding us. 🙂 You are awesome! ♥
So my boyfie knows how grateful I am to have him. He’s reading my posts on my Tumblr account – never thought of him reading such a long, very long post. Hahaha 🙂 I just know how lazy he is to read something, like more than 50 words to read. Hahaha. Exaggerated? Nope. I’m very positive. 😀
So I guess this blog site will be more updated than before. At least he wouldn’t know how hooked I am with him. lol
We are an example of Tom and Jerry relationship. Yes; we tease each other, bully each other, argue with small things (sometimes non-sense), we even came to the point that we show how ‘more than a monster’ we could be when we are mad and still we are together.
That’s one thing what I’m proud of with the kind of relationship I have now. He already knows the good and bad (even the weirdest) side of me, Vice Versa.
A lot of couples tend to end their relationship when they came to the extent of their anger. I’m guilty, yes. But hey! It’s just me alone. He never thought of ending our relationship just because of something silly that happened. He is holding on to our relationship the strongest way he can. And I thank him so much for giving me this kind of love. I know I don’t deserve this but still you are giving me endless reasons to keep our love strong.
He knows how to calm me down. And he also understand when the ‘time of the month for women’ is about to come. Sure he does. Haha! What a lucky girl I am. Envy me? *grinning*
The good thing about fighting? You’ll love your partner more than before. You won’t even realize it until you hug and kiss each other after the drama. ‘Sorry’ might be everyone’s all time favorite line to ask for forgiveness, for us it could be one of the following:
-warm hug and kisses
-a moment of silence after venting out
-accept each other’s opinion
Too much? Na-ah. You can do it all at once. How?
When you are mad you tend to talk and talk and talk and talk and talk. Right? That’s already venting out and giving your opinion. Ofcourse no one is going to accept any explanation when someone is really mad. So that’s the time to keep your mouth shut so as not to make things more complicated. And whenever you feel (or there’s a signal) that your partner is willing to listen, that’s the opportunity for you to start a simple talk about the issue. And when everything seems to be okay, hug and kiss your partner to make him/her feel that you are really sorry and you are willing to make things right.
This is Love. One true love. I’m so blessed to have this kind of relationship. I’m more than grateful.
And the story behind the photo above? We had a small argument but still we went out like nothing’s wrong. We went to Immaculate Conception Church and had a lovely dinner at Cluc’s Cafe. We’re now okay, back to our sweetest spirit. 🙂
Sure we fought, but love prevailed. My love for him will continue to grow.
A strong, healthy relationship can be one of the best supports in your life. Good relationships improve all aspects of your life, strengthening your health, your mind, and your connections with others.
Build a foundation of appreciation and respect. Focus on all the considerate things your love says and does.
Explore each other’s interests so that you have a long list of things to enjoy together. Try new things together to expand mutual interests.
Establish a pattern of apologizing if you make a mistake or hurt your partner’s feelings. Saying “I’m sorry” may be hard in the moment, but it goes a long way towards healing a rift in a relationship. Your partner will trust you more if he or she knows that you will take responsibility for your words and actions.
** Na-ah. This isn’t a couple bracelet. I just love having personalized things. ♥ Honestly, we never wore these. Like, never. It has been kept on his drawer since the day I had it.
Relationships are hard work. They can be stressful and, at times, drive you nuts. Thousands of people write to newspapers and magazines daily seeking relationship advice. Television “gurus,” therapists and self-help books have made a multi-million dollar business out of couples’ desire to make their relationship work. When it comes to relationship advice, we can all dole it out, but find it much harder to follow it ourselves. In the midst of a relationship, logic can yield to emotion, and composure to frustration.
There are some general rules for relationship health that if you follow them your happiness level should improve tremendously.
1. Compassion, understanding, respect and empathy are essential.
Avoid: Criticism or contempt.
2. Blaming or shaming.
5. Stonewalling or turning away.
6. Being the victim or the perp.
7. Fight fair: No yelling, name calling, sarcasm or hitting below the belt or eye gouging, rabbit punches or throwing things at or near the other person. With anger, never suppress it, never express it. Find out what is causing the anger and then..
8. Talk about: What you need, want, feel and what’s important to you and then make it about what each of you can do to make it better next time.
9. Be tender in all your interactions.
10. Keep your promises.
11. Develop and nurture a good sense of humor.
12. Acknowledge what your partner is saying before you say your piece.
13. Show appreciation.
14. Be responsible for yourself, your health and your messes.
15. Be considerate.
16. Own your part in a problem, even if it is 98 percent and 2 percent, own your 2 percent.
17. Make a commitment to making your relationship work. Be a part of the solution.
18. Connection is your top priority.
19. Practice loving kindness.
20. Accentuate the positive.
Following these simple ideas may take a lifetime because they are goals, not imperatives. We all need to know is where the road leads us to and, after all, isn’t all about the journey?
According to a new poll out today, women know they’ve found ‘The One’ when friends and family like him too. Ladies admitted that their ideal man is someone who would give them emotional stability while getting the thumbs-up from loved ones.
