How to improve your relationships

Think of the acronym: GIVE to help you to easily remember the four things you can do regularly to keep your relationship fresh and happy.


Be gentle with your partner. Don’t shout or ridicule them. Treat them with respect and kindness. The more you do this, the more you will find it returned to you… and if you don’t it might not be the right relationship to be in.

Don’t attack, threaten or be judgemental. Accept the occasional “no” for your requests.


Show interest in the other person’s life. Really listen to them when they talk to you. Part of the wonder of being in a relationship is sharing life and experiences. Use reflective listening where you repeat back what you have heard. We all live busy lives and we can end up becoming complacent in our relationships. Make the effort to show the person you care about that you are interested in them – in what they do, as well as in their hopes and aspirations.


This is an important one. Give the other person positive feedback and compliment them. Show love and express your feelings. Communication – regular, open and honest is one of the most positive characteristics of a successful relationship. A relationship is far more likely to last when there is regular communication about feelings and emotions, not just about whose turn it is to put the bins out.


See the funny side of life and be forgiving. No one is perfect. Never take yourself too seriously. Sometimes, using humour is a great way to diffuse conflict. Have an easy going attitude, smile and be playful as much as possible. Inject regular fun into your relationship to keep it lighthearted.

Relationships take work, put effort in and you will be rewarded. Everyone likes to feel loved and appreciated.

The perfect stranger

The perfect stranger

When we feel dissatisfied with our relationships, it can be tempting to fantasise about what life could be like with someone that was more like us, was more loving, more supportive etc

It’s easy to fall into the trap of the perfect stranger – the idea that there is someone who will fulfil our needs and be more compatible for us than our existing partner. Of course, there is the possibility that there is someone out there that would be better suited to you but when we put too much focus on the idea of perfect stranger, we can stop putting enough effort into making our existing relationships work. If you are good companions, fancy each other and enjoy being together most of the time, that’s a great foundation/base to work with. Don’t always assume that someone else will be better. We all have bad habits and no one is perfect. Give up the idea that someone better is around the corner. It will increase your dissatisfaction and may end up a self fulfilling prophecy. Be happy with what you have if most of the time, you tend to chug along quite happily.

5 Things confident people do in relationships

5 Things confident people do in relationships


  1. They assume all is fine in the relationship unless told otherwise

Instead of focusing on what might be wrong and allowing insecurities to get the better of them, confident people assume that everything is going well in their relationship unless told otherwise. They expect that their partner will love them and care for them because they value themselves and see their strengths and value to others.  Confident people don’t attach their worth to how others treat them. They know their own worth and as such have healthy boundaries in relationships.

2. They ask for what they want

Confident people have no trouble asking for what they want in a relationship. They will never assume the other person is a mind reader. They will be clear and ask that their needs are met. They are good communicators and aren’t afraid to talk about touchy subjects. Communication is the key to a happy relationship as it allows issues to be dealt with without an emotional ‘backlog’ of resentment building up.

3. They take responsibility for their part in the relationship

Confident people in relationships understand that they are mutually responsible for the success of the relationship and don’t put all of the responsibility on to their partners. They put their far share of love, affection and energy into making the relationship work and don’t shy away when the going gets tough. They easily see the bigger picture when they relationship hits a rocky patch.

4. They see rejection as incompatibility rather than as something wrong with them

When they are rejected they don’t spend time agonising over what they did wrong or whether they aren’t good enough. They are philosophical and understand that there are times when two people need to go their separate ways due to incompatibility.

5. They maintain their identity

Confident people stay true to their basic character and don’t stop doing things they love for the sake of a relationship. They understand that it is healthy to have your own interests and to have time apart as it creates more interest in the relationship. Insecure people try too hard to please whereas confident people know they need to be themselves. It’s exhausting and unsustainable to pretend to be someone you’re not.

Enjoy the relationship and accept it for what it is. Communicate regularly and never try to change your partner’s fundamental characteristics. A good relationship can be a wonderful source of love and support and we can all do with an ally or two in this world!
