“In relationships, you should spend the maximum time with your partner and friends.
You need to live and share your life with the person you love but this does not mean you should not have friends.
You should have your loved ones as your support system.
They are the people who can give you unconditional love and never hurt your feelings.” – Mishal Rana
Making the rules
It’s up to you to decide how much time you want to spend with your friends and your family.
The rules will change, depending on what type of relationship you are in.
If you’re in a long-distance relationship, you will need to schedule some time with your family to make it up.
If you are a couple, you will need to put some time aside for your relationship.
If you are a friend, you will need to spend time with your loved ones, too.
Make your own rules and figure out the optimum amount of time you need to spend with friends and family.
The date on the go
You don’t need to drive over to your friend’s house to see them. You can literally get on your bike and head over.
Yes, this might sound like a silly thing to do, but remember, the key to balance in your relationship is about having fun.
If you’ve reached a point in your relationship where you’re ready to talk, go discuss with your partner.
Take the time to figure out the big picture.
Make sure you are spending the right amount of time with your friends and family and you will be able to make the right decision for both of you.
Talk to your partner, be open to compromise, and figure out the right balance of time you need to spend with friends and family.
Commitment to your relationship
“The most important thing for both people is to be in a committed relationship.
They have to make time to be with each other. A relationship is about working it out. You can do it!” – Mishal Rana
By now, you know how important it is to have a partner, but is commitment equally important for a relationship?
Of course, it is. Commitment is the biggest challenge when you are in a long-distance relationship.
You will need to make time for your partner when you are together, but how do you carve out time for them when you are apart?
There are several ways you can figure out the right balance.
Are you just not that into each other? Take some time to figure out the reason why you are not in love.
Once you figure that out, you can move on and move your relationship forward.
For example, if you are just not compatible, it might be a good idea to take some space and figure out whether it is worth working on the relationship or not.
You might have to figure out why you and your partner don’t connect. If the two of you are too different, you might want to move on and find someone else.
If you have a great relationship, it might be a good idea to commit to being with each other even when you are far apart.
Trust your partner
“Don’t take your partner for granted. Relationships need a lot of work and effort to sustain.
If you don’t respect your partner and you don’t trust him or her, you can’t have a long-lasting relationship.” – Mishal Rana
Have you ever thought that maybe your partner doesn’t love you?
No matter how much you love him or her, if you don’t trust them and you don’t believe they can take care of you, you might not be happy in your relationship.
Your partner is your partner, your best friend, your partner in crime. They love you, trust you and take care of you.
If you don’t trust your partner and you don’t believe they can take care of you, you might not be happy in your relationship.
Commitment and trust are like kryptonite for relationships. If you lack one or both of these things, you won’t be happy in your relationship.
It’s very easy to keep things with your partner a secret, like your anxiety disorder.
But, it is way harder to express your inner self and trust someone enough to allow them to see your flaws.
Mishal Rana believes that in a relationship, it’s important to share your most private secrets with the person you are with. Your partner should have the same access to your vulnerabilities and flaws as you do.
If you are hiding something from your partner, it’s hard for them to get close to you.
They might sense that something is wrong and they can’t help but wonder what is wrong. It will only make your bond weaker and the intimacy in your relationship will start fading.
When you trust your partner, you will feel free to express yourself freely, without fearing that they will judge you. You will feel freer to just be yourself and show your true colors.
