LIFESTYLE WITH BERNYS-- RELATIONSHIPS AND WHAT YOU BRING TO THE TABLE.



RELATIONSHIPS AND WHAT YOU BRING TO THE TABLE.





The question ‘what do you bring to the table’ might seem more appropriate in a merger or a job interview and the likes of those. However, it is also a very key question to ask oneself in a relationship. Being in a relationship can be likened to being part of a team. Every great team has a strong back bone of team players and where one person falls short, the other person makes up for it and ventures on. Relationships shouldn’t feel like a competition between 2 people but rather two people complementing one another, so what should you bring to the table in your relationship?



YOURSELF AND YOUR HEART
Of course both people in any relationship must have interest in the existence of the relationship and be willing to put in effort to make the relationship work. Even though relationships do not thrive solely on love, it is fundamental to giving consideration to the other person in choices made and most decisions taken in relationships. The presence of love on the relationship table is therefore key.



MEANINGFUL COMMUNICATION

Without communication, there’s no relationship. You should be able to talk to your partner about anything and everything. Be a ‘go to on a bad day’ person and share in the joys of your partner on good days. Do not just be a talker and make it about you all the time. Be a listener too. Where communication is effective the bond of friendship gets stronger and there are inside jokes, body languages and even signs you both understand from each other and not just verbal communication. It makes spending time together fun.





SIGNIFICANT CONTRIBUTION TO THE DECISION MAKING PROCESS
It’s quite irritating when you get the answer ‘whichever way you want’ anything is okay’ or ‘I don’t know’ when you really need an opinion to inform a certain choice. Be able to brainstorm with your partner and help them make the best decisions and choices as well as solve both personal and relationship problems

FRIENDSHIP
Take time to truly get to know the other person and establish a strong foundation of honesty, companionship and love, get comfortable with each other and be there for each other. Friends do not take each other for granted and do not walk away from each other. Friendship is a powerful bonding that shouldn’t be missing in any relationship.




WILLINGNESS TO ADJUST
No two people are exactly equal and therefore in a relationship, both people are different in several ways and come from different backgrounds, different likes and dislikes, strengths and weaknesses therefore you should have a teachable spirit and be willing to adjust to certain things you may not be previously used to.

 MAKE THEM LAST. BRING SOMETHING SIGNIFICANT TO THE TABLE
