Every couple wants to have a happy and healthy relationship; and to have such a relationship, you must not only love and cherish your partner, but you should also show your partner some compassion and understanding.
Huffington post recently shared tips to help you show compassion to your partner. Here are 5 ways to help you do so:
Stop asking "What's wrong?": Compassion doesn’t mean something has to be wrong. Instead ask, "What do you need from me in this moment?"
Your needs versus theirs: This is the assumptive "compassion" rule. Just because your definition of compassion is "X", doesn't mean it's theirs.
The power of touch does wonders: Touch your partner, and let him or her feel your presence without saying a word.
Admit you're wrong: This is a sticky icky, but it can be a big compassion moment in a relationship.
Be truthful: Honesty equals compassion.
