Every relationship has its challenges. Mine too, especially over the last year or so due to Mr J’s depression and anxiety diagnosis. We’ve been together for over 11 years now, we’ve had our fair share of challenges. We’ve had ups and downs and everything in between. But how do we handle these challenges?
For Mr J and I, we have a lengthy conversation about these challenges and how we are going to handle them. Whenever something is troubling us, we talk. I think that is a key point to the challenges you face within a relationship. Communication. If you can’t communicate with each other, what have you got? Talk things over together and then at least you’re both on the same page.
In my opinion, there are five things that are a necessity to a relationship; Love, Trust, Communication, Honesty and Loyalty. If you have these, your relationship can go all the way. It’s thanks to these things that I am here today with a successful relationship for over a decade.
Stare those challenges in the face, stand united together and flip it the finger. You can overcome anything.
How do you handle challenges within a relationship? What do you think makes a relationship last? I’d love to hear from you with your opinions. Feel free to get in touch.
