Trust and Respect

It’s Valentine’s Day.  A day that symbolizes love.  A day that some people enjoy and others… well, don’t.

No matter which camp you are in, it’s worth paying attention to the wisdom of  John Gottman, Ph.D. when it comes to relationships.  He’s been studying couples for a long time and cites two key traits that keep people together.  Can you guess what they are?  Okay – I’ll tell you – they are trust and respect.

So go ahead and send flowers and chocolates because it’s a nice thing to do and, hopefully, it will be appreciated.  In addition, you might also check in with yourself to see if, on a daily basis, you are giving your loved one the best gift you can – reasons to trust and respect you.
