Do relationships have some kind of secret that makes some of the work and others not? They might have. It seems that there are people who feel sorry for themselves, without doing anything to change that, and there are others who live their lives dealing with any problems that they encounter. They might have learned these precious secrets from their families or friends.

Here are a some tried and tested ideas from those who have experienced healthy and long-lasting relationships:

Remember – Sit back and remember the time when you first met each other. Especially in hard times, try to sit back and recall the old time events and situations that reconnect you with each other.

Rendez-Vous – Although life is sometimes like a high-speed train, try to spend the evening together. It does not have to be something out of the ordinary, watching a movie together or playing cards or chess will do just fine. Try to simply enjoy the moment.

Have Fun – Most of us tend to have fun when we are dating and start to get serious once we get married. Forget that! Browse some of the fun websites out there and try out a few online games together. Or borrow a game console along with some games – enjoy them and simply have fun!

Forgive And Forget – It is useless to constantly think about all the unpleasant events that happened during a dispute. Let them off your mind then and there. Do not be shy and be the first to forgive and forget! It can be a very relieving feeling.

Distance – Keep a certain distance between each other. Everyone needs some space and time to spend alone or with friends. Every now and then we need some distance from our partner, make sure that both of you enjoy the same amount of personal freedom.

Argue – There is nothing wrong with disagreeing on certain things. However it is useless to get into flaming discussions and argue all night long. It is just not necessary to agree on everything. Do not worry, there is absolutely nothing wrong with that.

Things To Remember – Enjoy some quality time together, it does not have to be something really sophisticated. You might for example have enjoyed the fireworks the other day. A year later you might want to plan to watch it again. You can turn this into a habit. Gather articles and photos about fireworks, buy a couple of firecrackers on your own, read about the history of fireworks – who knows, it might turn into a passion.

As a conclusion do not just simply sit there and feel sorry for yourself. Little things can build a better relationship and the big problems might not seem that big at all. To build better relationships you have to be aware of what needs to be done and especially how it is done. There is no need to reinvent the wheel, simply implement some of these tried and tested ideas to have a better relationship.

This article gives a few key points on how to keep an honest and fulfilling relationship. Relationships whether dating, married or engaged shouldn’t and don’t have to be “Hard Work”. Anyone can reap the massive benefits of being in love and enjoying the one your with. From my own experiences here are some tips to encourage and help the longevity of your commitment.

Communication:

This is one of the most critical factors to a long-lasting, effective and respectful relationship. If either of you have any issues, address them sooner than later. Don’t hold in anything that may later build up and turn into complete chaos. Don’t be afraid to speak the truth under any circumstances. Unfortunately people are so passive aggressive and talk all around the issues at hand, that nothing really gets resolved. There are ways you can tell someone the truth without being condescending or mean. Although the other person may not like or agree with what you say they have to respect you for discussing it.

Respect:

Respecting each other is vital, the worst thing a person can feel is disrespected. “NEVER” make your partner feel like what they do is never good enough or what they have to say is never right. Don’t yell, the same information you are trying to convey in an elevated manner “Will Not” be taken the same if you are calmer. A person tends to block out what you actually have to say if they feel as if they are being attacked, compromising issues can help a lot in the respect department.

Avoidance:

When I say avoidance, I’m not speaking about evading any topics or concerns that maybe detrimental to an individual or the relationship itself. When it comes to public confrontations those should not happen at any cost. All it does is cause confusion, anger and resentment. Don’t always spread your dirty laundry to friends or family, you open the door wide open for judgement and criticism.

Make Time for Each Other:

I know people work different shifts and schedules and may not have the time to spend and share with their significant other like having dinner or taking a stroll in the park. I’m telling you “Make Time”. Even if it’s just meeting up for lunch and talking about how the day has gone thus far, it will make all the difference in how that other persons day will proceed. Go to a park and take a nice walk, enjoy the scenery and each other’s company. Parks are great conversational areas, so take full advantage of the time spent. Even a nice at home date night is a romantic and relaxing way, to conversate, watch movies and just welcome the luxury of your time together.

With current busy schedules and other events that you should attend to, you may seem to neglect your family. Every time you see each other would only be early in the morning or late at night. This can really affect the relationships and dynamics that a family should have. If you feel this way, then here are some tips you can do to improve family relationships.

Cut Back on Busy Schedules

Even just for one hour, it can make all the difference. You get to spend a lot of time with your family members if you find some time. Surprise them while they think you’re busy and you will really bring smiles to their faces. Family time is hard to find when you are busy doing errands, especially if you’re working. In order to make sure that you develop your family relationships well, cut back on busy schedules and make some time-this can be a good start to family fun.

Make Way for Family Vacations

How else would you enjoy some family bonding time? Family vacations are great getaways from the busy lives you’re all leading, and making way for the quality time you need to catch up on. Explore the different beach or mountain resorts with your family to redevelop the bonds that have been breaking away due to lack of time. You can really get to know each other much better when you spend time alone with your family.

Call or Text Each Other More Often

Oftentimes, you may not see each other for the majority of the day. It can’t hurt to text your brother or father asking them how they are. You can even call them time to time to just talk. These moments may not be for long-but the impact they give can really last long. A simple message asking “how are you?” can really develop relations with your family members. Keep in touch with your family members in order to improve bonds with them.

Family relationships are taken for granted most of the time. You might simply say hello to your parents or siblings before going off to wherever you’re needed and that’s that. You should learn how to develop the relationships with your family through cutting back on busy schedules, making way for family vacations, and calling or texting each other to help improve family relationships. A family is very important, and you should value yours.

11. January 2016 · Comments Off on 5 Tips For Making Online Photo Sharing More Meaningful For Family And Friends · Categories: Society · Tags:

It seems like everybody is sharing photos online. But it also seems as if it’s less about sharing memories, and more about sharing a funny photo they found on the Internet, or just putting a bunch of photos from a vacation into a file folder for people to view.

That’s a little like dropping an envelope of prints on someone’s desk and expecting them to understand what’s going on in the pictures. If the person wasn’t with you when the photos were taken, they’ll have no idea what they’re looking at.

When you share your photos, be sure to include a story about them. Some sites allow for easy storytelling, some don’t. Search “easy photo sharing” on the Internet, and you’ll find sites that let you tell stories quickly and easily.

Below are some tips you can use to make your photo sharing a little more meaningful for family and friends. These are ideas you can use to bring the photos you share to life for the people you send them to.

Share memories from your life. This is especially important as parents age and kids grow up. Both are important times filled with milestones you’ll want to remember. Without a doubt, there will be people in your circle of friends who will want to see pictures of your mom, dad, or relatives whom you have a significant relationship with. People love stories about people, especially when they have deep meaning.

Share your passions. If you’ve got a hobby, child, husband or something else you’re particularly proud of, be sure to catch a special moment with a photo and then share it.

For example, if you’re husband’s a woodworker, be sure to capture shots of him working on a project, then get a picture of him with his finished project and show it off! You can document the project start to finish in photos, and then add just a little bit of text to each one.

Share a wonderful moment. With digital photography, it’s so easy to snap a quick picture and send it off in an email. So if your dog does something cute, or if you child does something even cuter, capture the moment and send it off to grandma, a favorite aunt, a friend … whoever you think would love to share the moment with you. This is a really fun thing to do. It engages your friends and family in your every day life, and is a great way to stay connected.

Share a day, a month or even a whole year. Easy photo sharing sites make it easy for you to organize your photos so that you can share magical memories from a day, or the events and milestones from an entire year. That’s the beauty of online photo sharing – you can catch people up with your life in an instant!

Plus, you don’t have to wait for a special occasion to do so. People love to hear about what’s going on in your life, so don’t be shy. If you have a particular milestone or event you want to share, or a series of events you want to catch people up on, go ahead and share!

Share memories across the years. This is perhaps the greatest untapped part of online photo sharing. Just think of all those old photos you have sitting in a box or in photo albums. Why not break them out, scan them into your computer and start sharing them with the people in your life in a new and exciting way.

That’s right, in this modern digital age, you can connect with the past faster and in ways you never dreamed possible. Imagine reaching out to an aunt you haven’t seen in decades with pictures from the summer days you spent with her.

Think of the joy your loved one will feel when they receive photos from days gone by. And you can share this joy with a simple email or you can lovingly create a Photo Album or other printed Keepsake and send it directly to the person you’re reaching out to.

There are a lot of different ways you can share photos, but the key is to add enough information so the recipient of the photo will know the story behind the photo – and everybody love’s a good story!
