So what is one of the best way to insure a happy connection with your partner? Make sure your attitudes around your relationship are endowed instead of entitled.
Marriage Saving Tip 3: Show your Appreciation
Now that you’ve committed to viewing your partner through loving lenses of endowment and speaking to them with words of love and kindness, it is time to show your Appreciation. Appreciation melts hearts. In an employment survey, appreciation for a job well done was the most desired reward. The world seems eager to find the places where we fall, and point out our mistakes. It is up to the one’s who love us to point out what is wonderful about us. When we pay attention to someone and compliment them, it not only makes them feel great, it actually makes the one sharing the compliment feel great! Appreciation is the first gift we give in the name of love and should be given every day. When our beloved says, “You’re wonderful. I’m glad your mine.” It not only causes the person to feel loved, it makes them feel more loving.
Compliments cost nothing, are easy to give, and take no time at all. They are powerful, positive, and kind, you simply have to make the effort to speak them. Any compliment will do: “Dinner was great, you set a great table.” “Thanks for taking out the garbage. It was very thoughtful. Thanks for changing the oil in my car.” “That dress looks great on you.”
