A relationship is like a bubble. Being in one makes you oblivious to the world around, for you are locked into your state of euphoria in your fantasyland. You tend to give a blind eye just to enjoy the carefree bliss which the relationship feels. This may make you happy and might help you attain peace but keeping your feet on the ground is also highly essential. Because, if you float for too long you will lose sight of what is important.
To always make you see the important things it is very essential to do a reality check on a regular basis. Life is very different from the fantasy land you have built for yourself; it is a very cruel, mean and very hard place. You wouldn’t even notice and in flash of a second life will happen and change everything around you. To keep this change from affecting your anchor of a relationship it becomes very essential to ask yourself and your partner some very hard but real questions. The question may be tough and unpleasing to speak and to answer but this is a qualifier of a strong relationship. For any strong relationship will survive any reality check.
Following are some questions specifically designed to give your relationship a real strenuous time. Answer them in the presence of your partner and after this ordeal, your relationship will be stronger than ever.
Do you spend enough time together?
The very first question or thing which should come in the course of examining your relationship is the amount of time you two spend together. The more the time the better the relationship, this is the mantra in every healthy relationship. If you hardly spend time together this is not a good sign.
Do you plan a future together?
The ability to perceive and plan the future is what distinguishes us humans from other animals. So, if your relationship is strong then this would certainly mean that you two must see each other in your future. If that is not the case then you may have to reconsider your relationship.
Is there a string bridge between your souls?
Being in a relationship is not an easy feat. Keeping secrets is never healthy for any relationship because they are the ones you tend to lean on whenever you need support. This makes the existence of such a bridge very important.
Do you trust each other?
Trust is one of the very important structural pillars on which any relationship stand on. If this pillar is weak the building built on it, however beautiful it might seem to be, would fall eventually. Thus, you need to ask yourself and your partner about the kind and level of trust you two share with each other.
