Home is where the family is. And, it won’t be wrong to call family a group of friends you have around you, to share all your fun, happiness, sorrows, pain and problems with. And like any other group of friends, even the people in your family are going to have different opinions about different things. No two or more people are completely like-minded, ever, it is said. And where there is a clash of opinions, fights happen, and we tend to start getting disconnected from each other. Therefore making us overlook what makes a good family relationship.
Sometimes, it may be just a simple squabble, and sometimes it may be a money matter. Sometimes, our ego stops us from talking to each other and sometimes, we fear to approach them, for we think that it’s too late to apologize. But however dysfunctional, our family always stands by our side in our times of despair.
So, what makes a good family relationship?
Here are a few things that you can do to improve the familial ties.
#1 Reach out
Sometimes we fall in an argument with a distant or a close family member and create a feud out of nothing and swear to never talk to them again. Don’t wait for them to come. Reach out to them and sort things out.
#2 Learn to let it go
Heated arguments are very much prone to happen with the people you share a bond with. Don’t let your ego overpower your love for them. Let go of your ego and make things work out again.
#3 Believe that everybody loves you
Whether or not it is true, believe that they love you. This will always give you a positive thought about them, and you’ll always strive towards making things better between you and them.
#4 Counting looks good in math, not in relations
Stop counting the times they connected with you or took the first step towards making the relationship better. Keep doing good for them and your relation, selflessly.
#5 Tell them that you love them
It is easy to spit out anger and talk to someone rudely. But, it is very difficult to tell someone that you love them. Take the chance whenever you get one and tell them how much you love them.
Are you ready to take a trip to make only happy memories with your family?
