10 Secrets that Make a Successful Relationship

Let’s say it out loud: the 10 secrets that make a successful relationship.

At first sight, you may think there’s no secret at all, you’ve heard them all before, there’s nothing new here. Everybody knows you need trust, respect and so on in a relationship.

But even though they’re the most common things, it seems it’s really hard to achieve them. Look at your relationship and at all the relationships around you. There are extremely few ones that are built up from all of these things you find so trivial.

So, this is why I call them secrets because we all know how they’re called, but we haven’t actually found out their true meaning. Or at least we seem to forget it.

Beyonce has a beautiful line in one of her songs that sums up pretty much everything a relationship means:

Intimacy. Honesty. Commitment. You. Me. Us.

10.Trust

Trust is a tricky little thing, my friends.

I think we’re all very familiar with the words “trust issues” because to be honest, we all have them. Some just a little bit and some big time.

The problem is that it’s extremely difficult to completely trust a person, especially when it comes to romantic relationships and that’s mostly due to past experiences.

I mean, let’s put all the cards on the table now, it’s pretty damn hard to trust another person after someone previously broke your heart into pieces and went behind your back.

But a relationship means sacrifices and this is one you’ll have to do if you want a healthy relationship because no one wants to be with a controlling paranoid freak.
