8 IMPORTANT FACTORS IN CLOSE GOOD RELATIONSHIPS!!!

f351bf90837754628b3248f48475cca8

If you have integrity and are trustworthy, dependable, competent, friendly, and empathetic then your chances of forming close, good relationships is optimized. Being immoral and having many bad habits or one or more severe handicapping bad addictions will almost always ruin the possibility of close, good relationships. That being said there are 8 important factors which affect the strength of a bonding relationship:

TRUST:

Trust is the most important bonding characteristic which makes a relationship possible in the first place. Being honest, sincere, and moral or having integrity means that a relationship can potentially flourish if nurtured further.

Lie, steal, or commit adultery and trust can’t exist. Some dysfunctional relationships continue to exist without trust because of fear of abandonment or the fear of physical violence but these relationships are definitely not good or happy ones.

COMMUNICATION:

A relationship is threatened and often ruined if the communication is very bad, if there is very little of it, and definitely ruined when there is no communication at all.

Ideal communication is being a good listener, asking relevant questions, being relatively brief in responses, respecting opposing opinions or beliefs, not being verbally abusive or offensive, and interrupting or changing the subject if the conversation becomes too verbose, too trivial, too emotional, or irrelevant.

RESPECT:

If you have integrity then you will be respected but respect can also be increased with appropriate kindness, gratitude, caring, empathy, openness, listening, dependability, responsibility, competence, expertise, confidence, tolerance of opposing opinions and beliefs, and respect increases by not being verbally or physically abusive. A socially prominent respected human will often also be admired.

RESPONSIBILITY:

A responsible human accepts the consequences of his or her actions and does not try to find excuses or blame others for his or her own mistakes and failures. Moral, parental, behavioral, and financial responsibility is essential for a good relationship.

COOPERATION:

Sharing and/or compromising on parental, household, and financial responsibilities is the essence of what cooperation is. Mutually agreeing on what is to be done by who at what time is what cooperation between two or more individuals means. Whether it is between two individuals or an entire team or organization a good relationship depends on successful cooperation.

BEING GOOD ROLE MODELS:

A good relationship thrives if the participants in the relationship are good role models. This is particularly important in parenting where offspring will do what you do rather than do what you tell them to do. Words are rather weak motivators if your personal behavior and your words don’t match up. If you are a good friend then associate with humans who are also good friends or try to mostly have relationships with good role model humans.

Realistically not that many are good role models and you will also have to learn how to interact with quite a few bad role models in the course of a lifetime without becoming overly cynical, jaded, or spoiled.

INDIVIDUAL FREEDOM:

In any relationship one must respect individual interests and pursuits which make a relationship interesting and potentially more rewarding. Encouraging or motivating someone to pursue their individual interests and build upon their strengths is usually good for a relationship.

PATIENCE:

Not every problem or confrontation needs an urgent solution. Sometimes some research, further discussion, consulting with competent adults, and just letting more time to pass determines whether mutual agreement is possible or whether a live and let live attitude is preferable.

Transient angry confrontations should be minimized by patiently waiting until a given situation can be calmly discussed instead. Angry confrontations often cause insults, put downs, name calling, humiliation, and ridicule which just creates bad feelings and no resolution of the conflict.  

Important problems with potential solutions need patient waiting until enough information and resolve grows to a point where a solution is obvious and possible.

Most parental relationships have a dominant or controlling partner who makes most of the important family decisions and runs the risk of becoming too tyrannical and impulsive with her or his demands. Emotional patience is often a virtue and patiently doing something is less of a virtue especially if it takes the form of procrastination on too many things.

THE TRUTH ABOUT PATIENCE

images

Modern society is very impatient. We want our food fast, we want fast money, fast conversation, fast relationships, fast entertainment, fast education, some want fast cars, and many want fast solutions to problems in life.

The result is a narcissistic feel good culture wanting instant gratification in almost everything. If we quickly don’t get what we want then we try to escape our felt confinement with addictive drugs or happy pills and easily succumb to other addictive behaviors such as pornography, impulsive shopping, gambling, and over eating.

Many of us don’t realize that selfcontrol and patiently working and planning ahead to reach worthwhile goals in life is much more important than living an impulsive largely irrational daily existence where one day is pretty much the same as the other day and no substantial progress is made.

Fewer and fewer take time out from the rat race to really analyze and think about the life which we are living and may actually want to live in the future.

Patience is not a virtue if you are just lounging around not doing much or just engaging in mostly trivial pleasure seeking pursuits. Patience is a virtue if you are using that time wisely to pursue your long duration goals as well as some short duration goals. Patiently working to get what you most value in life is the true key to successful and happy living in the long duration.

If you are not patiently learning new skills and new knowledge then you will probably be stuck in your rut on into the foreseeable future until some crisis happens in your life which makes you think about and maybe change your largely dysfunctional lifestyle of impulsive impatience.

I am not advocating that you patiently wait for good things to happen in your life. I am advocating that you patiently work and do things to increase the probability that good things will happen in your life not only in the short duration but also in the long duration.

Patience: n. a willingness to endure (suffering and/or provocation) and/or (delay and/or tediousness) and/or (incompetence and/or partence) and/or (doing with composure and/or doing with selfcontrol when trying to achieve a goal(s))

 

Partence: n. using up much time trying to achieve a goal(s)

10 IMPORTANT SOCIAL TRUTHS ABOUT HUMAN NATURE: PART 5

patience-is-a-virtue1

Charity begins at home.

This just suggests that your first priority should be helping your family with important problems. Then you can spend time, energy, and money trying to help other humans with charitable gestures.

 

 

Clothes don’t make the human.

 

Good clothes can try to mask a bad human being who is flawed to a somewhat large degree. Looking good does not necessarily mean being a good personality.

Looks can be deceiving.

 

Some people surround themselves with expensive possessions that they don’t own outright and surround themselves with beautiful humans to create the impression that they are wealthy and successful when in fact they may be barely alive financially and are just putting on a good appearance to con you out of some money or a favor.

 

Confession is good for the mind.

 

Admitting to someone or even yourself that you did something wrong or bad will help you to feel better about the transgression.

Cutting off a mule’s ear will not change the mule

 

Making superficial changes in your looks or behavior will not change a basically flawed personality type or bad human.

 

Dead humans don’t bite.

 

This is only true if you are not fighting the actions of a dead human’s surrogates who are executing his or her living trust that is still affecting you legally or financially and badly.

 

Patience is a virtue.

 

Most worthwhile goals in life are reached with much patience and effort so patience can frequently be a virtue.  However, extreme patience is frequently a sign that there is probably much lazy activity going on or that it is an improbable goal and it’s pursuit should cease or be greatly reduced.

 

The bigger they are, the harder they fall.

 

This just means that high status humans who fail go down many more status steps. When they have to start at the bottom of the hierarchy again then they also frequently suffer more emotional pain and depression than common humans who have had similar but smaller decreases in status.

 

Possession is nine tenths of the law.

 

This is just true for stolen items with little monetary value. If you steal a small object it is very hard and frequently impossible to prove that it is not yours. It is much harder to steal a valuable object such as a car or a house and not get arrested.

 

The doors of wisdom are never shut.

 

This just means that you can always get wiser as you age if you choose to do so.
