A huge part of being able to build a strong relationship is to know how to acknowledge your partner’s qualities, and be able to articulate why the qualities are important to you. Building a strong foundation takes time, dedication and patience. Couples need to learn how to communicate, compromise, and express appreciation for one another.
When a couple is struggling with trust and communication, this can become difficult. Expressing appreciation for different qualities in a partner can make a person feel vulnerable if they do not feel secure in their relationship. A great exercise to build a bond and trust in a relationship is to teach each partner in a couple how to express appreciation for one another.
