Relationships are fun if you are with the kind of person
who makes you feel good and compliments you.
Not everyone is fortunate enough to find themselves in
this kind of arrangement especially because they’re not
getting the desired support from their partner.
Here are some useful tips to help be a more supportive
partner:
Be in the moment: Stop being so consumed with
everything around you and just live in the present.
Be there for your partner whenever they need you.
The assurance that someone out there exists just
for you is something powerful. Reaching out to that
person and finding them there, always ready to help
you is wonderful.
Don’t be selfish: It is common to take out your
frustration on your loved one when you’re upset. If
you partner is in this phase, don’t make it about you
by fighting back. With time they will realise their
mistake and apologise. But don’t count on it. It’s
fine even if they don’t.
Be attentive: One of the best tips on how to be a
supportive partner is to simply listen. A support
system works because you know someone,
somewhere cares about you so much that they are
ready to take anything. Don’t judge, offer advice or
suggest solutions. Just listen.
Give your partner space: Sometimes, it is important
to take some time off for ourselves. Your partner
feels the same too. Be there for each other but
don’t be clingy. Let them decide if they want to
spend time with you or they want to go out with
some friends. Don’t be upset about it, it’ll only
strengthen your relationship.
Be supportive: We all want to be appreciated and
encouraged. When your better half is going through
a rough patch don’t let things tumble. Do your part,
as well as your partner’s. After all, you’re supposed
to be there for each other always.
