Harmony in the couple, how to achieve it?

Harmony is knowing how to respect the other. It is not necessary to always agree with what your partner says, does or thinks, because the essential thing is to understand it.

Last update: February 16, 2022

Harmony in the couple is like a dance in which no one loses the rhythm. There is balance, harmony and the music of satisfaction plays in the background in this journey shared by two people.

This emotional competence is reached after a lot of work, some misunderstandings and, above all, with the clear desire to invest efforts and changes in the emotional bond.

Anyone who thinks that loving each other a lot is enough to ensure a happy relationship is wrong. We would like that coexistence could be based only on love so as to extinguish the occasional disagreement and the discussions that arise out of nowhere.

It would be wonderful if passion and affection were the balm in the face of difficulties, but suddenly we realize that sometimes individualism and the need for a joint investment weigh more.

It is not easy to find the right partner, but it is more difficult to find one and make the connection flourish, mature and become lasting and satisfying. However, such an inspiring goal is not impossible. The secret is to find harmony.

"A loving heart is the truest of wisdoms."

-Charles Dickens-
