Listed below are 10 lessons dogs can teach you about making marriage – or any sort of fully committed relationship – work.
1. Forgive mistakes. Regardless of what we people do – scoot our dogs from comfortable seats in front of the television or go on walks or jogs without them when the weather is too hot or cold- dogs in no way hold a grudge. They forgive us our failings and don’t dwell on our errors.
2. Celebrate time together. How fantastic is it to return home to someone who is at all times delighted to see you? No matter whether we left the house 5 hours ago or 5 minutes ago, doggies are over-the-moon delighted to be reunited with us. In this world of continuous “busy-ness,” stopping to commemorate the entry of a cherished one does not usually take place. That typical complacency tends to make the act actually stronger.
3. Prioritize exercise. We live in a stress filled world. Workout is a good idea to fight against anxiety in our lives and as well to have significant time with beloved ones far from computers, phones and other distractions. The majority of dogs would agree with the fact that we would all be better off if we spent more time with each other on walks.
4. Embrace the power of silence. Listening is tough work. Quite a lot of us invest more time holding out for a turn to speak than focusing to what our companions are telling us. Our dogs are never ever waiting to talk. Dogs basically cock their heads and try out their best to fully understand our message.
5. Show love in big and small ways. From laying their heads on our laps when we’re watching a movie to barking wildly and running in circles any time we get them to the park, dogs allow us to know we are cherished each and every day.
6. Be yourself. In the words of the great sage RuPaul, “If you can’t love yourself, how in the hell you gonna love somebody else?” Dogs have no desire to be anyone but themselves. This is the reason why they can show love so effortlessly. They do not desire to make an impression. They just want to love.
7. Do not forget to have fun. Did you ever meet a dog who was too busy to have fun? Surely you have met lots of people who are… Life is way too short not to play and feel great with those we care about.
8. Be loyal. Dogs do not complain to their friends whenever we leave dirty dishes in the sink, gain a few pounds or show up late for an evening walk.
9. Treat your beloved ones even better than they should have. We must aim to be the types of people our dogs think we are.
10. Give each other some space. Dogs don’t understand some of people’s hobbies, like Facebook or reading. Their owners don’t understand the pleasure he gets from chasing birds or rolling in mud. Nevertheless, they go along magnificently. Actually, having time for each of us to go after our individual hobbies maintains us happy and well-balanced. Naturally, everybody requires some personal space every now and then.
A little additional work and focus goes a long way toward making a relationship more powerful. Therefore thanks to all the dogs out there for setting a great example and helping us humans be better partners!
