Taking Responsibility In Your Relationship.

Taking ownership and Responsibility for your actions is an important part of healthy relationships. Doing so is an empowering reminder that you have control over the role you play in your relationship. Taking responsibility creates trust and dependability. When you take responsibility for your behaviors, you demonstrate to your partner your level of understanding, maturity and willingness to be honest and vulnerable, which in turns encourages your partner to be open and real with you.

The willingness to accept that no one is perfect and everyone makes mistakes is the soul winner of every lasting relationship. A simple "I'm sorry" won't hurt your self esteem and also communicating about whatever happened or goes wrong has a way of strengthening your relationship with your partner. Pride, Ego and Negligence are the main cause why most relationships don't stand the test of time. If you are in a relationship with someone who is unapologetic and always think whatever he/she does is best, i would advice you stay off such people as they will keep hurting your feelings.

The moment you realize you've acted wrongly towards your partner you shouldn't feel reluctant to say "I'm Sorry" because the word Sorry can heal anger, ill emotions, feelings, bad mood and aggression. You can actually keep that amazing MAN/WOMAN for eternity if you're good at making CORRECTIONS.

"The act of taking responsibility for ones actions in every RELATIONSHIP is very important in building solid, trustworthy, and a firm relationship"

  • Well said. Also, taking responsibility for our actions in relationship like a few said herein isn't gender related. I feel both party must have the emotional competence to take responsibility for their actions so as to foster a health relationship. If the habit becomes a lifestyle, then they are towards achieving a healthy marriage.
