One of the greatest challenges facing us in life is how to be happy with each other. So what would you say is the key to enjoying a happy and loving relationship? Think about all sorts of relationships; marriage, friendships, relationships with your children, your neighbours. Draw upon every experience in your life and think about the things, which you believe create rich and satisfying relationships. Is it shared interests, mutual respect, honest communication, passion? Of course these things are important but actually, the best way to make a relationship work, is to be happy already.
Being happy already is what attracts a loving and lasting relationship into your life. You must realise that it isn’t your responsibility to make someone else happy; we are all responsible for our own happiness. To find happiness in a relationship each of us must find happiness within ourselves first.
