Contentment in relationships

12

“You can’t stop loving or wanting to love because when it’s right, it’s the best thing in the world. When you are in a relationship and its good, even if nothing else in your life is right, you feel like your whole world is complete”.
-Keith sweat

“Being able to wait is a sign of true love and patience. Anyone can say ‘I love you’ ….but not everyone can wait and prove that it’s true”.
-Rana Magdy

“Love is friendship that has caught fire. It is quite understanding, mutual confidence, sharing and forgiving. It is loyalty through good and bad times. It settles for less than perfection and makes allowances for human weaknesses”.
-Ann Landers

A long time ago, someone told me that the way he sees relationship is that both persons involves has to be content and committed to actually  make it work and go the extra mile to achieve the “happily ever after”.
Not surprisingly, such people, who work hard to stay happy and make their relationship work; does not only excel in their romantic relationships but they are also masterful in maintaining strong connections with their families and friends. As with romantic relationships, having a strong support network of family and friends can both increase positive emotion as well as serve a buffer during times of stress or trauma.  There is a bidirectional relationship between friendships and happiness. Those with a number of close friends are likely to be happier, while happier people generally tend to attract more people who are interested in being friends with them.

To my surprise, while we have a hedonic adaptation to material goods, and need bigger and better houses, cars, and electronic goods to please ourselves, the same is not true for our romantic and social relationships. Our desire to maintain strong interpersonal bonds does not change, even as we achieve success in these domains.

Be contented!
