This Is What Being In A Relationship Really Means

This Is What Being In A Relationship Really Means

If humans would have the inherent characteristic to be alone and happy, perhaps the population would be a lot less and each one us would be occupying our own personal island. However, fortunately and unfortunately, we are highly evolved individuals, for whom to love and to be loved is a very basic necessity. Hence being in a relationship is an option which we do choose, to ensure our “Happily ever after life.”

    But, with time only the relationship is left behind, with little or no happiness. This happens because we tend to forget what a relationship really means.

    This is What Being In A Relationship Really Means :

    1. Having faith, freedom and friendship

    You need to have faith. A constant nagging or a skeptical attitude will ruin the relationship. You need to have the freedom to speak for yourself, freedom to follow your heart and the freedom to make your own choices, while you are enjoying the relation with a bondage of friendship. Being in a relation means a balance between the freedom and bondage.

    2. Giving and getting the time

    Women want someone to understand them whereas men often want someone to connect to them through watching a football match or playing video games with them. Hence giving and getting time, is one important aspect of being in a relationship.

      3. Being Patience

      It takes time to give and get time, so be patient. Accepting your partner with his/her imperfections, needs patience. Things will be perfect, with a little patience. There is no point in having daily fights over routine habits of your partner. He/she needs time to change himself/herself.

      4. Being Able to Share

      Sharing feelings, emotions, finances, thoughts, words and actions enables you to spend some quality time with your partner. This makes you feel complete in your own world of two people. When you share, you connect. When you connect, then the relationship begins.

        5. Being the Strength

        Everyone has a time in life when they feel low. This is when being with your partner makes you stronger. When someone believes in you, when someone motivates you, inspires you, strengthens you, then you realize what being in a relationship really means. It means being strong together, living as a team.

          6. Love

          Being in relationship means being in love. Love means acceptance : Praise the good, accept the flaws and provide the inspiration to change. Love is neither a moment nor a feeling, it is the existence of togetherness.

          7. Being yourself

          You don’t need to act or be someone else just to impress your partner. Being in a relationship means being yourself. Everyone is different and being in a relation allows you to celebrate the mutual difference!

            8. Being the best version of yourself

            Being in a relationship means that you partner not only accepts you the way you are, but also inspires you to be the best version of yourself. Most of the successful people owe their success to the daily inspirations provided to them by their partners.

            9. Allowing yourselves to miss each other

            Go for a vacation with your friends, Find time for your own passions. Being together 24/7 doesn’t help much because it is important that you allow yourself to miss your partner.

            10. Being an individual

            Have your own identity. Don’t be afraid to try new things just because your partner is not there with you. Have your own identity. This will allow you to share a different perspective with your partner. Life is interesting only because of the differences and the individuality.

              How to Quit Your Boring Life and Start Living an Interesting One

              How to Quit Your Boring Life and Start Living an Interesting One

              Think you have a boring life?

              The definition of boring is dull or not interesting. Maybe you’ve been doing the same thing and living the same life for too long, or maybe your daily routine is limiting your growth and happiness. Whatever your reason is, the following list of 20 things can definitely make any day more interesting. Some of them are silly, while some are more meaningful, so hopefully just reading the list makes your life less boring and sparks your creativity.

              Let’s dive in the list to quit your boring life and start living an interesting (and meaning) one!

              1. Channel Your 7-Year-Old Self

              What would he or she want to do right now? Color? Paint? Run around outside? Play dress up? Eat with your hands? Play that instrument hiding in the back of your closet that you haven’t touched in years?

              Just because you’re a grown up doesn’t mean any of this stuff will be less enjoyable than you remember it. Give yourself permission to play.

              2. Go Play with Kids

              Speaking of little kids, if you have your own or access to any (in a non-creepy way, like they’re your niece or your best friend’s kid, you get the idea) go play with them!

              They didn’t create an entire show called Kids Say The Darndest Things because kids aren’t hilarious. They also keep things so simple, and we can really stand to be reminded of this and stop allowing ourselves to get bogged down in boring details.

              3. Order a Hot Dog

              While you’re eating it, Google: “What’s in a hot dog?” You decide whether or not you want to finish it.

              4. For the Ladies: Wear Your Sexiest Lingerie Under Your Work Clothes

              Your “little secret” will leave you feeling anything but boring all day!

              5. Play Cell Phone Roulette

              You’ll need at least one buddy for this. Scroll through the contacts in your phone, stop on a random one and call the person.

              You could spark an incredible catch up session or be incredibly awkward. Neither are boring.

              6. Fill out a Pack of Thank-You Cards

              Give them to random people who probably don’t get thanked too often for doing what they do ever day.

              Ideas: police officers, librarians, servers, baristas, cab drivers, sanitation workers, teachers, people behind any check out counter, receptionists, your friends, the guy at the falafel stand, etc.

              7. Sign up for a Class in Something You’ve “Always Wanted to Do”, or Something That Makes You Really Uncomfortable

              Ideas: pole dancing, salsa lessons, improv, pottery, cooking, knitting (yup, there are classes for this, too!), karate, boxing, something techy like the workshops they run in Apple stores, get Rosetta Stone and learn that language you’ve always wanted to speak, etc.

              What’s good about joining an interest class is that you will also meet new people!

              8. Interview Your Grandparents About Their Lives

              You can bet they’ve had some crazy experiences you probably never knew about.

              9. Get up on Stage at an Open Mic Night

              Whether you’re funny or not, get up on stage and just talk funny. And if you’re not, memorize a few of your favorite jokes and tell those!

              10. Do Something for Someone Else That You Wish Someone Would Do for You

              We all have a few ideas on this list. I promise you will feel amazing after and anything but bored.

              11. Start a DIY Project in Your Home

              12. Plan a Weekend Trip or an All-Out Vacation

              This will give you something to look forward to.

              Even if you don’t have the time or money to go on a vacation, plan for a staycation, which is same fun and relaxing!

              13. People Watch

              Find a bench in a crowded area (centers of transportation like airports, bus stops and train stations are great for this!) and just observe.

              People are infinitely interesting.

              14. Eat Something You’ve Never Eaten Before

              Bonus points if it’s a random fruit or veggie.

              15. Dance

              You can get your friends together for a night on the town or just pull up a video on YouTube and bust a move from your own living room.

              If you’re feeling extra brave, you can even dance in public and get other people involved.

              16. Go to YOUTUBE and Search “Funny Pets” or “Funny Babies”

              This is also a great quickie ab workout as you will be laughing hysterically.

              17. Pick up a Book and Start Reading

              Check out the NY Times Best Sellers lists and grab a new book you can get lost in.

              18. Step Away from the Computer and Go Get Some Time with People You Care About in Real Life

              Facebook stalking doesn’t count as real social interaction. You can even share this post with your friends and vote on which one you’d like to do together!

              19. Check out a Museum You’ve Never Been to Before

              OK, depending on your interests, this one might actually be boring. If you love learning, art or different cultures though, this one is for you!

              20. Write a List of Things You Desire and Truly Want

              This is a great way to help you figure out the real reason why you’re feeling bored about your life. Maybe you haven’t really done things that you truly enjoy? Maybe what you’ve wanted to do all the time has been left behind?

              Think about the list of things you really want to do, and ask yourself why you aren’t doing these things (yet). Then start taking your first step to make what you want happen.

              Now go make your life interesting and live your dream life!
