To love someone, to be able to understand someone is one of the most beautiful experiences of life. Mutual understanding in relationship is important. Relationships cannot be built in a day you need to give time, have mutual understanding, unconditional love, and patience. These are the four basic elements of a healthy relationship. Generally, much emphasis is laid on love, to fall in love with people who end up loving you, we can only have a good future with a person whom we love or they love us, without love you cannot be in a relationship.
1. Mutual understanding is the fundamental element of a relationship
Mutual understanding always has a major role to play in the maintenance of healthy and long-lasting relationships. Love is important but mutual understanding is necessary for relationships to breathe, sustain, and exists without a timeline. We often talk about unconditional respect to love, but where does unconditional love come from? Unconditional love is derived from mutual understanding and mutual understanding comes from trust. We trust someone when we can actually understand someone and relate to them. When you start understanding someone, you become sensitive towards them, become more aware of their personality and character, and can easily connect to them on a different level mentally.
2. Mutual understanding provides a strong foundation
Mutual understanding comes from communication and sharing of thoughts. It provides a strong foundation. Communication based on healthy conversations, conversations about respective goals, families, friends, and the bond that you share help you develop mutual understanding. When couples understand each other, issues and arguments can be resolved easily and quickly.
3. Mutual understanding is more important than love
The unfortunate reality of love is that it is not just enough to make a relationship work in the long run. It is important to understand your partner, there should be a willingness to understand each other. Love without understanding is just like flowers without fragrance. Being loved and being understood by someone is always confused, being understood is completely different from being loved by someone. Loving, understanding, and knowing someone takes time and patience.
4. It helps you grow in a relationship
Conflicts and arguments are very normal in a relationship. Ego should be kept at bay, it should never come on the way of understanding between partners. You do not have to right or wrong during the altercations, you just have to be understanding of each other. It helps you grow in a relationship.
5. It helps you accept people the way they are
When we do not know someone, it is very easy to form a judgement about them. You will never form or pass judgement about anyone, if you actually know them, understand them. Mutual understanding in relationships leads to a non-judgemental behaviour. When we know someone, their ups and downs, their past, their fears, and their failures, you will never judge that person. It is only possible when you have a stronger mental connection with respect to each other. For having a proper mutual understanding, efforts have to be given in. Without giving effort you cannot understand anyone.
6. It generates mutual respect
With mutual understanding being the core element one can easily sail through the ups and downs of their relationship. It generates mutual respect for each other It takes time and patience. The spirit of never giving up on each other is also very important, to keep on giving efforts mutually to improvise the relationship is also very important. Human relationships are not that complex the way they are assumed to be, with mutual understanding, love, and compassion one can easily maintain a healthy relationship without a timeline.
7. Lack of mutual understanding can end a relationship
Lack of mutual understanding can lead to an end of a relationship too. With only love being the crux, partners hardly understand each other.They do not even try to give more efforts to make their relationship work due to the lack of understanding. This leads to the end of a relationship. Due to the lack of understanding it is very difficult to connect with someone. This can lead to mutual misunderstanding and conflicts.
In an era of casual hook-ups, tinder, and ‘friends with benefits’ approach, it is very difficult to find true love. Nowadays relationships start with a right swipe on tinder and end on WhatsApp status’es. Love, feelings, and compassion are so short-lived now. With the abundance of love and companionship around the world, it’s confusing to find the right one and develop a good understanding. It is also easier to break up from a relationship and venture into another looking for stability and understanding. Remember, mutual understanding with anyone can make him or her the right one for you. Always try to give efforts in building mutual understanding with someone, trust me love will start flowing gradually from all directions.
