4 core foundations of an everlasting loving healthy relationship and life

#1 Self-acceptance

The worst loneliness is to not be comfortable with yourself.”-Mark Twain

How can we accept the other person effectively before we have learned to accept ourselves unconditionally? When you accept yourself conditionally, you cannot love another unconditionally, because why give someone else something you do not have? Self-acceptance works wonders.

#2 Communication

The most important thing in communication is hearing what isn’t said. — Peter Drucker

You may think you learn a lot about a person by observing them, but you need to communicate. You need to communicate and make your obseervation in small chunk as they come to your mind. Don’t bottle up and explode. Open up to one another.

#3 Forgiveness

There is no love without forgiveness, and there is no forgiveness without love. — Brynt H. McGill

When partners practice forgiveness, fully aware that both individuals are capable of hurting and making mistakes, their marital bond becomes stronger.

#4 Friendship

Marriage, ultimately, is the practice of becoming passionate friends. — Harville Hendrix

The word “friendship” conjures up thoughts of honesty, vulnerability, trust, companionship, and mutual respect. It also implies an investment of time and energy. When you are friends with your partner, you have mutual respect for and enjoyment of each other’s company. And I think that is a vital part of a happy marriage.
