Deep friendship is the foundation of happy and healthy relationships.
Over the years of research, it has been proved that long-term vitality and connection are maintained by moments of deliberate friendship woven throughout the duration of a relationship. It also forms the base for closeness and fulfilling sex.
During consult, I encourage long-term couples to transform seemingly insignificant and mundane actions into chances to attune to one another. When external stressors and difficulties challenge your Significant Other, they need to know you’ve got their back. You’re on the same team, after all.
That means you should show real interest in supporting your partner and avoid anything that makes them feel insignificant or alone.
I encourage you to think about any daily actions that you can take to strengthen your relationship and go for it!
