    This is very important for any relationship to work. The responsibility of sacrificing things for your relationship lies on both of you and if it is only you who ends up doing it all the time, then it is time to do some re-thinking. When you are letting go off anything in life, make sure your partner knows it. Also, convey the importance of the sacrificed thing to your partner so that your sacrifice is not taken for granted. Sometimes you may face difficulties in letting things go off but you must understand that this act is important in order to make your relationship bloom.

    Accept Flaws

    No one under the sun can be perfect. We all have flaws and to accept someone with all their weaknesses and strengths is true love. Don’t keep constantly trying to bring about a change in your partner. Accept them the way they are and this will in turn help them to accept you.

    Be a Perfect Companion

    Life tests you at every point and to stick to your partner through ever thick and thin is what your relationship demands from you. Staying by their side during the happy times and quitting during hard times will make your partner develop harsh feelings for you which can be very harmful for the relationship in the long run.

    “ It is always better to leave than to cheat’’. The quote correctly tells how important it is for you to stay faithful to your partner. There may be times when you may feel low about the relationship but that by no means would imply that you should cheat on your partner. Make your partner develop faith in you that irrespective of the circumstances you will stick by their side and you belong to them completely.

    Trust each other completely. However, what both of you must remember is that trust is very fragile. Once broken it cannot be fixed and even if you somehow manage to repair the damages, the cracks will always remain. No matter how gruesome the truth is, never hide it from each other. Be transparent with your partner to give your relationship strength and longevity.
