Among Humans...even birds, animals and fish...relationships enhance
...also create a comfortable and a truly loving environment in which to live.
Often, lack of communication causes a "breakdown" of this arrangement.
These guidelines, if followed, will quell the troubled waters in one's life.
10 Universal Laws You Can Use to Improve your Partnership
The Law of Listening
Listening while you read the paper, watch television or work on the computer
is not listening. Listening with your eyes, attention and heart...IS!
The Law of Anticipating
It's a human need to have something to look forward to.
When you look forward together, you draw closer as a couple.
The Law of Appreciating
Appreciation can be as simple as , “I liked it today when.....” or “Thank you for....”
Simple, yet powerful.
The Law of In-Laws
Thank the in-laws when you can. In-laws may be very challenging,
but they also were responsible for creating the person with whom you fell in love.
The Law of Compliments
Saying something nice about your partner's dress, shirt and haircut are all
nice things. You can go farther with, “I really like the way you handled the situation,“ or "I'm glad I am with you.”
The Law of Genuine Interest
Show genuine interest in your partner. You show genuine interest when you demonstrate that you've been paying attention to the other person.
The Law of Touch, Hold, Caress
A potentially fun law. Everyone needs to be touched. That one small gesture can contribute to a great deal of healing in a relationship.
The Law of Knowing the Dreams of Your Partner
It's even better still when you know someone's dreams and contribute to having some dreams come true.
The Law of Asking Questions
Asking questions shows genuine interest in another person. It compliments
and honours them.
The foregoing, written by Jeff Herring and Maritza Parra,
