THE 4 DON'Ts TO MAINTAIN AN IDEAL RELATIONSHIP
As we are into the holy week, I attended a retreat on Tuesday at my church. The retreat was conducted by a Priest whom I was very fond off. The retreat revolved around the topic “ AN IDEAL FAMILY AND RELATIONSHIPS IN MODERN WORLD”. The way he spoke about the realities of life in a sarcastic and comic manner had everybody in splits that evening. I laughed a lot and learned a lot that day. I needed an experience like this to feel good, for many evenings had gone by without smiles and happiness. For a change to laugh forgetting my problems was a blissful experience.
He listed 4 don’t’s to maintain an ideal relationship. Those 4 dont’s are :-
1- Do not compare
Never compare your partner with others. Believe that your partner is the best and count him/her as your blessing. Grass on the other side looks greener.
2- Do not compel
Never compel your partner according to your wishes, your desires. Never force anything on him/her. let them be themselves, accept them as they are.
3- Do not complain
Don’t keep nagging about all the faults your partner has, never always keep finding faults in whatever he or she does. Accept them with their flaws and imperfections because remember even you are not perfect. Be grateful that you have someone who loves you in your life.
4- Do not condemn
Never curse your dear ones, just let the bad things go. Don’t hold any grudges and don’t say bad things to happen for them swearing in the name of our Lord.
At the end of the day, never let small things affect your big happiness. Let go off mistakes of your love and love them with all your heart. If ever they hurt you, remember the good moments you had with them and then you will realize how special they are to you.
