Sometimes couples reach that point in a relationship where the “honeymoon” phase is over. They then maybe reach a point of complacency which sometimes there is less effort put in by either one or both partners. This may create a break in the relationship which could even result in the end of the relationship. I can personally attest that I have felt that complacency in my own relationships and it definitely takes effort from both partners to continue building that relationship.
So how do you rejuvenate your relationship that may be slowly settling into
complacency? Some tips are:
1) prioritize your relationship (don’t take your partner for granted even if
you are very comfortable with each other. Show effort!)
2) communicate and listen to each other (one of the most important things of a relationship!)
3) remember that sometimes the little things matter the most (small tokens of
appreciation cost nothing but mean the world!)
4) spend some time apart (don’t get me wrong, spending regular time together is
important and essential BUT it can be very effective to spend some time apart-
allow yourself to miss each other… excessive togetherness alienates your other
relationships in your life.)
Don’t settle for complacency! Be aware and be there for your partner. It may require
more work and effort from both of you but if your relationship and partner are worth
it for you, it will grow even stronger and better in the future.
