Re: Tips for relationship success (other than communication) -

I do agree that relationships shouldn't have to have so much work that they turn into a chore, but every relationship needs a little work. You need to be able to put yourself in their shoes to be able to understand them, and grow together. Attention and of course communication is important. Be attentive towards each other and share your life. You can't have a working relationship if you keep too much to yourself, it would just be a lie that way.
That's really just the basics, but that's what makes the relationship work, you don't need gifts or fancy outings to keep the relationship fresh, just a little care and attention [:

"Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it.
Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumoured by many.
Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books.
Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders.
Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations.
But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it."
