When you don’t take care of something it falls apart. A house that never receives attention becomes decrepit; the paint chips, the pipes leak, the doors fall off the hinges and the roof leaks. Relationships are the same.
When you first met you showed you cared. Maybe you opened the door for your partner or brought them flowers. Maybe you sent a heart text for no reason. Just because you are in a longer term relationship don’t forget that compliment. Remember that their birthday and anniversary are special. Have you told them how grateful you were for what they did for you today and how much you appreciate them being in your life?
Do you show your partner common courtesy. Maybe they made dinner for you. It was expected. It might have even been burnt. But did you say thank you and give then a kiss for taking the time and trying?
Make your partner know they are special and they matter. Let them know they are loved and appreciated. Let them know your life is better because they are in it.
