As human beings we all maintain relationships-be they in the family,or friends,colleagues, neighbors,relatives etc.If these relationships are happy and cordial ,they give us joy and make life worth living,otherwise they are a pain.
Achieving success has a lot to do with the state of mind.Tensions,stresses distract a person from putting her best.from my experience and interaction with various people ,I have come to the conclusion that to ensure happy relationships ,there should be a mutually acceptable code of conduct drawn out in the beginning.
Some of the points which come to my mind for including in the code of conduct are as follows;
Mutual and unconditional respect at all times.
Absolute clarity in money matters
Maintain regular communication
Always understand the other person’s point of view.
Appreciate and compliment at every possible opportunity.
If you don’t like something in other’s behavior,find a suitable opportunity at the earliest to convey properly ,without bitterness or anger.
Don’t hesitate to say sorry,and mean it from your heart.
If someone says sorry,realize that it takes a lot of inner strength to say sorry,appreciate that ,accept it and never again rake up that issue.
There should be a grievance redress system,wherein all grievances should be resolved at the earliest.If possible involve a mature person in this.
Remember that it is easy to break a relationship at the slightest pretext,but difficult to maintain a healthy relationship for long years.The later requires wisdom and maturity.
