If you want your close relationships to be meaningful and long-standing, whether they’re romantic, friendly, or with your family or work colleagues, you can’t expect them to last if you don’t put in a significant amount of effort. All good relationships require cooperation, trust, support, communication and kindness, plus a whole lot more. This post from Pulse.ng explores some of the other qualities a relationship must have if it’s expected to have any staying power.
For one thing, all good relationships should have compassion rather than judgment. If you're constantly judging or criticizing your partner, instead of showing them the love and support they need, they won't put up with it for long and your relationship has no chance of surviving. Additionally, if you're fighting, it's important to remember that you're in this relationship together. Getting irrationally angry at your partner, or yelling at them in the heat of the moment won't solve any disagreement, and will just bring toxicity to the relationship. If you remember why you're with your partner, even when you're arguing, it can help you take a breather and get through disagreements without lashing out and saying something hurtful.
