That question explores the power of love and if you are ready to meet the one you dream of. How do we find true love in this modern age and keep it alive for the long haul? The process of finding our soul mate and creating a healthy relationship that will last for years to come seems ambiguous at best. Whether you're single or already in a committed relationship but looking for ways to improve your connection with your partner—are we really ready to share the space with the one we want to be close to? I’m thinking that taking steps towards experiencing more meaningful connections with yourself first before diving into another relationship, can be one of the most exciting and fulfilling experiences in life. But before I dive into a relationship with someone else, I’m taking inventory of whether or not I am truly ready for love. While every relationship is unique and different, there are universal components that will impact whether or not a relationship has a strong foundation that can last through time. Some things I am really considering and think anyone seeking to add on to their relationship tree should be:
Time: Knowing how much time you need alone versus together is an important factor when considering if you're ready to have a successful relationship. When both partners have enough independence from each other while still wanting to spend quality time together on occasions they both enjoy- then this increases the chances of compatibility within their connection. This also speaks volumes about how committed each person is willing to be towards making sure their partner feels safe and secure during times spent apart but still cherished upon reuniting again soon after separation occurs. The separation really can make the heart grow fonder and our time away may provide more to share.
Values: Opposites may attract but down the road that attraction can be tough to maintain. Being able to recognize which values align with yours and those that do not matter so much gives great insight into any potential partnership situation. Having similar core beliefs allows individuals in a union to come closer emotionally due to mutual respect found among them.
Shared Goals: The same goes for shared goals too - being able to discuss dreams and aspirations provide further clarity around roles and responsibilities needed to sustain momentum and work towards desired outcomes over a long-term period without either party feeling left behind in any way, shape, or form. That is why it’s important to determine early stages if couples match up in terms of what matters the most in order to create a harmonious dynamic where trust grows naturally and no effort is required to maintain consistency throughout the entire journey taken together.
Communication: Without proper communication skills we can never establish deep meaningful connections no matter hard we try to reach out to another person... That is why it's essential to learn how to communicate effectively using words, body language, and facial expressions. When discussing sensitive topics such as finances health issues etc., misunderstandings and miscommunications can happen all too easily. It's important to check in with one another and not take things at "face value". When reflecting on important matters it is critical to recall the behaviors throughout your timeline together and not what you may be experiencing at the moment.
Emotional Availability: Establishing emotional availability should always precede physical intimacy. Once we choose to traverse boundaries we can't go back. What is done was done, and what is said was said. Do you have the time and courage to stick around and offer insight, encouragement, or other support after everything falls into place?
Shared goals coupled with effective communication strategies and emotional availability are just some pieces of the puzzle when it comes to understanding what makes up healthy relationships. Being familiar with the five love languages can help identify how best we express our appreciation for others in ways they appreciate most. Is this the perfect time for my soulmate to show up? is an important question to ask yourself before embarking on a journey of finding the right person. It’s essential to take time to self-reflect and develop your emotional intelligence so that you can recognize healthy relationships and make sound decisions. Additionally, it’s important to be honest with yourself about what you need in a relationship and be willing to compromise when necessary. I hope everyone is able to find the perfect match in the perfect time and have a lot of fun in the meantime.
