Masters of Love
This is a great article about creating the kind of strong relationships that will flourish, be enriching, and long-lasting. Thanks Laura for sharing and for your additional comments.
I feel that the insights are for any kind of relationship, not just marriages, and not just for romantic connections either.
From my own experiences the insights from research shared in this article are indeed things I’ve come to find extremely true and important to what cultivates a healthy relationship that either has the potential to be long term or not.
I believe true intimacy comes from things like being present, patient, having gentle kindness, sharing genuine engagement and interest, a lot of vulnerable, authentic and loving communication, mutual respect and honor, and as the article shares – active constructive responding.
This is a great read with helpful insights to implement into your daily relating.
This is a link to a copyrighted piece in the Atlantic regarding the importance of kindness in marriages or long term relationships. It goes beyond the obvious and gives some well-researched insights into why relationships flourish or fall apart. I will say that from my own experience in relationships and especially from what I hear day in, day out in sessions, this article rings true. Click here to read “Masters of Love.”
