Even though falling in love can be really easy, making things work can be really hard sometimes. Being in a relationship isn't just about going on dates and spending time together. Being able to really connect with your significant other can make the difference between a healthy relationship and a strained one. In fact, if you seriously want the love, as well as the spiritual and emotional connection between you and your partner, to last, working hard to maintain your relationship is key.

Spiritual coaches Cynthia James and Carl Studna discuss what it takes to keep a great relationship on track. Having a healthy mindset when it comes to communication can really impact how you bond with your partner. You also have to love yourself before you can truly love anyone else. The true soul mate is you. Find your best self so that instead of believing you need to keep the person you are head over heels in love with, you will be able to keep yourself. Do not be afraid to stir up the pot by being yourself. If someone can’t embrace the real you then you should not allow yourself to fall in love with that person. This fact can be used in all types of relationship not just physical ones. Use this for family, business, and friends as well.
