Have you ever heard of any successful relationship that didn’t have loyal partners?
However, you must have surely come across couples in a relationship who aren’t loyal and are still expecting a healthy relationship.
The funny part is that some people even feel PROUD having multiple boyfriends/girlfriends. They consider it as something worthy of flaunting and keep on boasting in front of their friends.
But does that even feel right? NO!
I mean, how can someone play with the feelings of others and enjoy it? It’s pretty disgusting.
So, if you feel that you or your partner isn’t loyal in your relationship, you’ve landed on the right post.
It is better to quit this habit right now rather than regretting later. Now, how can you become loyal?
Don’t worry! I’ll let you know everything.
So, without any further delays, let’s start!
Definition of Loyalty in a Relationship
Loyalty means being genuine, truthful, and faithful to a person. Loyalty in a relationship is:-
- When you hold onto your partner’s hand even when everything seems to be going in the wrong direction.
- When you unconditionally accept your partner’s flaws.
- When you want your partner to succeed and fulfill their dreams.
- When you don’t need to hide anything from your partner.
- When you can undoubtedly rely on your partner.
Importance of Loyalty in a Relationship
Before getting into the ways of how you can rebuild loyalty in a relationship, it is vital to know ‘why is it important to have loyalty in a relationship?’
So, here are the reasons:-
1. Being loyal helps to minimize the trust issues in a relationship.
2. Your bond deepens and gradually becomes eternal.
3. It is too difficult to rebuild the trust again once it’s broken.
4. Being loyal helps you to get rid of the problems that are critical for your relationship.
5. The relationship becomes ever-lasting.
5 Ways to Build Loyalty in a Relationship
Here are the 5 methods that you can use to build loyalty in a relationship:-
1. Attraction vs Love
It is vital to know the difference between attraction and love.
It is human nature that you cannot totally avoid getting attracted to someone else because you get attracted to them by their looks or personality. However, attraction is mostly short-lived.
Love is when you find your ‘someone special,’ and there’s an instant mental connection. Both of you get emotionally connected in no time, and you start feeling as if you’ve found your twin flame. Everything feels perfect, and you get into a relationship.
What happens next is you start getting confused between the two.
After you get into a relationship, there’s an extensive attraction as well as a feeling of love. As time passes by, you start undervaluing your partner as they become a part of your daily routine.
At this time, you might feel getting attracted to someone else. You might even doubt your past decision of entering into a relationship.
What you need to realize at the moment is that ‘It’s attraction, and it won’t last long.’ There is no need to sacrifice your love for it.
Stay loyal and control your emotions.
2. Multiply your Mental Strength
The biggest strength that you have is your mind. If you make up your mind that you will make your relationship last forever, then it will.
Promise yourself that you won’t cheat ever with your partner, and you will always stay loyal to them.
Shower your partner with lots of love and whenever you feel attracted to somebody else, remember how much your partner loves you and how much they trust you.
Your mental strength will automatically fight back, and the feeling of attraction will vanish instantly.
3. Be Aware of Limits
It isn’t a problem when you make friends of opposite genders, but the problem arises when there aren’t any limits defined.
You need to know when to step back or start creating distance.
As I’ve said earlier:-“Attraction is natural, and it could happen to anybody.”
So, whenever you start feeling attracted to someone or that person getting attracted to you, try to distance yourself.
Try to minimize conversations. Meet them only when your friends are around or only when it’s necessary.
Having defined limits of ‘how you would behave’ or ‘how they are allowed to behave’ will help you to stay loyal in a relationship.
4. Practices What you Already Know
I didn’t want to waste your time explaining all the general relationship strength-building content you already know. So, instead of multiple and extensively explained points. Here are seven quick pointers:-
- Support your partner in fulfilling their dreams. Appreciate them whenever needed.
- Stand by their side even when they are facing the worst of their moments.
- Stay truthful to them. Don’t hide anything. They won’t be ever suspicious of you.
- Show Empathy.
- Admire them as much as you can.
- Shower them with lots of love.
- Forgive them whenever required. There’s no need to hold onto the things from the past.
The strength of a relationship and loyalty in a relationship go hand in hand. So, if your relationship will be strong, it will be loyal as well.
Pretty obvious, right?
5. Don’t Fall in the Boasting Trap
As I’ve told you at the start of this post, people nowadays have started considering it cool to have multiple girlfriends or boyfriends.
Please stay away from this trap! It isn’t cool at all.
You might get appreciation at the upfront, such as ‘how cool you are?’ or ‘Wow! Dude, you are a ladies’ man,’ but do you know what do those people say behind your back?
Here is what they say:-
- Such a characterless person. Look at how he is spoiling the life of others.
- Such a heartless guy. No feelings. No emotions.
- He won’t ever succeed in any relationship.
The list goes on forever.
Let’s forget about all of them! Do you feel that any of your relationships would even survive?
Of course NOT!
Now you know the reality, and I guess you would’ve felt by now that boasting isn’t worth it.
So, Don’t fall into such showoff traps. Stay loyal in a relationship. Stick to one partner, and you will be proud of yourself.
What I Feel…
One of the biggest sins that a person could ever commit is breaking someone else’s heart.
You shower them with lots of love, gain their trust, and commit to staying with them for the rest of your life. They start imagining their future with you, and all of it gets shattered in a few minutes.
All of it just because either you got bored with the same person in no time or you fall too quickly for others.
Is it REALLY fair?
Everyone has emotions, and those emotions are invaluable. You never know what a person will go through if you break their heart. Their life might turn into hell, and maybe, they won’t be able to feel loved or fall in love again.
Those hearts are precious. Never let it happen. Have a clear separation line between love and attraction.
Love from your heart and stay loyal. Trust me! Your relationship would be a huge success, and your life would be happier than ever.
Wishing you a successful relationship journey ahead.
Stay happy. Stay loved.
