Falling in love is the easy part. The challenge for couples is how to reawaken the fires of romance from time to time and cultivate the mature, trusting love that is the symbol of a lasting relationship.
Below, Dr Tšepang David Majara, a Psychologist and owner of Mind Liberation Consultancy, gives lovers how they can better things and spice up relationships.
Love is a doing word: You must show acts of kindness towards your partner, pray for one another because temptations are there everywhere, so cover your partner with prayers, God is love, be in good books with the Creator. Understanding what makes your partner feel loved can help you navigate conflict and put romance back into your relationship. If your partner is practical in love, notice the many small ways he or she shows love by.
Caring for your partner’s personal growth: make a contribution to your lover’s growth in life, nurture things they love, if they love reading, praying, doing the garden, etc., become part of those things.Little kindnesses can go a long way, and yet we’re often the most resistant to doing the very things that would light our partner up. Just bringing a cup of tea or offering a random act of affection can shift the entire dynamic of your day to be more loving and romantic.
