Mutual respect is an important part of any relationship. Sometimes, especially when we are feeling strong emotions, it may be difficult to respond with this respect. The above two steps will help you ensure you show your partner the respect he/she needs and deserves, and your relationship will flourish.
Discuss any conflicts you see growing.
Don’t let them rot and fester within yourself or the other person. Also, be open to understanding the other person’s point of view.
Understand your partner’s “suchness.”
“Suchness” is a Buddhist concept that refers to the essence of a thing or a person, i.e., its true nature. Look for your partner’s suchness, as learning it will help you understand them better, and you will have a much more harmonious relationship with them.
