The basics of being a good partner – The essence of a good relationship partner/spouse is someone who wants to contribute in a meaningful way to their partner.
They are part of supporting their partners’ emotional growth.
They are someone who wants to learn who their partner is so they can support them in the way they need.
A good partner cares about how their partner feels without judgement.
A good partner will put their partner first.
This is important so they feel safe and loved no matter what.
This way they can help them grow and evolve so they feel and remain connected to who they really are.
Many people lose connection to who they are in their marriage with so many hats to wear, helping your partner keep their core identity alive is such an important role.
This is why when someone doesn’t feel emotionally connected or is emotionally challenged, stressed or ill, a good partner is there to see they are struggling and will help them rather than judge them.
A good partner will know when their partner is not being themselves and will be there for them.
A good partner will embrace honesty and love unconditionally.
A good partner will be responsible for their own emotional health and happiness and give from this space because it’s who they are not for what they want back.
Many think you have to give love to get love and this will always be an ineffective trade that causes more problems.
A good partner takes 100% responsibility for their relationship because they are a good team member.
In contrast many people run a 50/50 relationship model which is full of judgement, blame and resentment so are never a good team.
A good partner will always work towards making life better and being part of the solution.
A good partner will help the person they say they love to become more of who they really are.
A good partner will help their partner to love how they feel about themselves when they are together.
A good partner will forgive and find a way to make amends when things go wrong.
These are just a few of the basic qualities good partners need to practice if they want next-level relationships.
