Little compliments go a long way
When the going gets tough, the tough get going. Often in relationships, especially in the current times, people give up and move on. And later, we regret, wishing for having taken one extra step. To avoid such circumstances, one must learn a few key rules of happy, strong and long relationships. We found Vedavati and Vayuputra of Attarintlo Akka Chellellu incorporating many of these in their relationship.
The first rule of keeping your relationships happy and healthy is dropping a simple compliment every now and then. Remember, you cannot force a compliment. And it is best to voice it out when you genuinely appreciate it. It could be a piece of garment or the smell of their new perfume, little compliments will take you a long, long way.
Being best friends before partners
Another important aspect of a strong long-term relationship is blurring the lines. With Vedavati and Vayuputra, we have seen that they do not restrict each other to being a husband or a wife. They blur their lines and become business partners, counsellors, advisors and best friends before anything else. Unless you take off all of your masks, you cannot be true to your relationships.
Discussing, not degrading
To err is human. And we all make mistakes from time to time, despite being our most careful self. In such circumstances, it is important to sit down and talk about the problem or differences, instead of drawing conclusions. Often, in heated arguments, you may end up saying many things you do not necessarily mean. So, allow the rage to take a back seat and navigate through life with peaceful dialogue.
Currently, Vayuputra is finding it difficult to choose between telling the truth to his wife and keeping his father’s last secret. However, the two have always told each other every last detail that matters. It is because of this that the couple is always on the same page, through thick and thin.
We, not I
Lastly, when you want to work out a long-term happy and healthy relationship, you must allow ‘we’ to takeover ‘I’. Prioritizing needs and wants to find a middle ground for every conflicted area, and practice saying ‘we’ are in this together. What other lessons have you learnt from Vedavati and Vayuputra?
