No matter what the situation remember to treat your partner softly.
You need to give your person the benefit of the doubt then even if you have been hurt before and if you feel that you have chosen the right partner then you have nothing to worry about.
When your relationship becomes difficult you can't run away from that moment because you need to stick to your partner and keep every promise.
You are self sufficient but you can't fix all your partner's problems so accept that they don't need to hold your hand because sometimes they can handle themselves.
Even if you're independent you need to treat this person like your teammate remember that you're on the same side and you're in it together.
You have to learn to compromise with your partner instead of assuming that you will always do it your own way and that your relationship is a two way street.
No matter what the situation is you should never lie to your partner and always tell the truth even if telling the truth hurts their feelings tell them and do not hide anything secret from them.
Mistakes happen to humans and those who try make the same mistakes so when your person makes a small mistake remember that they are only human beings and do not have to always correct them.
We know it's scary to reveal your true feelings but you should tell your partner what's going on in your mind even when it's a very intriguing strange thing.
You may want to look strong all the time but sometimes it is not weak to show your feelings and if you want to strengthen your relationship then it becomes important to express feelings.
If you do not understand your partner's dreams then you should encourage them to fulfill their dreams and remind them that you are standing with them in every step of their success.
No matter what the relationship is every relationship means giving priority to the other person so make sure that you do not serve too much on your plate that you forget your partner.
