Treat your partner (or spouse) better than your friends. Your partner must feel valued, loved and respected. Pag ginawa mo yan, tatagal at hahaba ang pagsasama ninyo, at hindi kayo palagi mag-aaway. Madalas kase mas nahihiya tayo sa iba pero bastos tayo sa mga partner (or asawa) natin. Mali iyon.
Ginagawa mo ba ito:
- hinihiya mo sila sa harap ng maraming tao?
- pinaparamdam mo na wala silang kwenta?
- pinapaalala palagi ang mga failures nila noon?
We must treat our partners better than anybody else because we know them very well more than anybody else. Mas kilala natin sila, alam natin ang strengths at galing nila, kaya dapat mas may loyalty tayo sa kanila. We should treat our partners better than our friends dahil sila din ang ating lovers and basically should be our best friend too.
Kung hindi mo feel na itrato ang partner na pinaka mahalaga sa buhay mo, sino pa? Ano ba ang purpose nila sa iyo?
When you treat your partner as your best friend, it means, you respect them because there are times that you may not agree with them but respect them anyway. You do not have to agree all the time in everything, but when there is respect, there will not be much argument, criticisms and back-stabbing. Mas mababawasan ang gusot at away sa bahay dahil nandoon ang respeto at pagkilala sa bawat isa. Hindi naman ito parang korte na pagalingan na lang sa debate where the intention is just to win the argument but forget that the bottom line is to make things better.
The Bible is clear:
1 Corinthians 13:4-8 New International Version (NIV)
4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
