Our relationship pillars

November 20, 2019

Heeey guys! How’s it going?
As some of you may know from our previous posts (if you don’t, go check out our “How we met” post!), we have been together for almost 6 years now. We consider our relationship a success! 🙂
Therefore, we feel like we have `some’ expertise to share with you guys a few things we believe are most important in order to maintain a long and healthy relationship.
First of all, you need to be willing to give as much (sometimes even more) as you would like to receive back. Relationship is not only about unity, about two people sharing their likes and dislikes. It is also about making the right decision for both, even if that means one is going to have to give up some things in the process.
Second, COMMUNICATION!!!! You have got to be transparent with your partner! If something is bothering you, talk about it! That same thing might be bothering them too. Be honest! Ever since we moved in together, we have this “deal” that if we ever had a disagreement or an argument, we would ALWAYS find a solution before going to bed. That way we would NEVER sleep mad at each other. And it has been working pretty well so far.
Third, support each other! We as human beings have a need to have someone watching our backs! That gives you courage to go out there and do what we need to do, knowing that whatever the outcome is, he/she is going to be there for us! Ever since we moved to Canada our sense of support to each other has grown immensely. Mostly because we are all we have here! I (Andi) have lived abroad by myself twice before, but for Kevin this is his first experience living overseas. And I am sure that he couldn’t have done it without my support, and vice-versa.
Last but not least, respect and trust your partner. I mean, everybody deserves to be respected, no matter who they are or how close they are to you. So, respect your partner as you respect your mother and father, your siblings, the mail guy, the waiter at your favourite restaurant, the bus driver. And trust, well in our opinion, generally speaking, there are two ways of trusting someone. You either start from 0 and build it up over time, or you start at 100 and go down from there. In our case, we both started from 0…so there was a lot of jealousy at the begging which we were able to overcome with time.
So these are the pillars of a healthy relationship from our experience, and fortunately we have been very achieving them successfully.
