What Is a Couple?
When thinking about romantic relationships, a few thoughts come to mind. I think of trust, honesty, and open communication.
When we love, we are trusting our significant other with our heart and soul. We very well know that should this relationship end, our heart and soul could be damaged, often for a long time.
Knowing the risks, we still choose to find that person and fall in love. When in love, we also (ideally) want to be able to trust our partner and depend on them. What gives us the ability to trust? Honesty.
When your partner has always been honest with you, you have your reason right there - to trust them. Should you feel like you can't trust them, or they're not being honest......you should openly communicate.
How does communication help here? When expressing our needs, wants, desires, thoughts and feelings, we are becoming a book for our partner to read - and chances are they will understand you much better when your book is open.
Everything that's discussed is of course referring to both sides. Relationships are a two-way street and without the help of the other, you can't really get anywhere.
So work on becoming honest and trustworthy, as well as openly communicate and love away!
