A lot of people comment on how Hoan and I always look so happy together. While that’s true the majority of the time, like any other relationship there are factors constantly straining our relationship. We’ve only been together over two years so we don’t have all the answers but I do want to share two key practices that have really helped us in our journey together. So here are 2 keys to a successful relationship that I’d like to share with you guys!
1. Open communication
So this can be really difficult to practice, especially when there are a lot of toxic emotions and thoughts. And while you think something might hurt to say (which it probably will), it’s really important to be transparent and let them be in the know so you guys can work through it together.
2. Holding on
It’s really important that when it comes to a successful relationship that each side holds on when the trying gets tough. What I mean by this is when it feels like one person is letting go, it’s the other person’s job to hold on. Whether it be staying on the phone to settle an issue or not letting the other person storm out. It’s definitely a balancing act on both sides.
I hope these two pieces of advice can help you to have a successful relationship. Whether it be with your significant other, your best friend, or whomever is important to you, wishing you the best!
Live simply, love beyoutifully,
