Just as no one is a mind reader when it comes to problems in a relationship, no one is a mind reader for the good points either. You love and appreciate your partner, so let them know it. Every day, remind both yourself and your partner of the love between you. Serve up a compliment first thing in the morning. Think about how happy your partner would be to wake up and see your smiling face and hear, “I love you because…” That one compliment, that one reassurance, can set the tone for the whole day. Call your partner at work, or leave them a loving message on their voice mail. Do thoughtful things for your partner, like bringing them a drink when they are watching TV, ironing their clothes for them, or making them a cup of coffee in the morning. Even the worst day gets brighter when your partner reminds you of how much you’re appreciated and loved.
These things can seem small, but they can be the glue that reminds each of you that you’re taking this journey together, being with each other through thick and thin, and that you want it this way. Small thoughtful acts can say, “I want you to be happy. I want to make you happy.”
