One of the 5 P’s of Life is “Personal Relationships” – your relationship with others, including your spouse, significant other, parents, other family members, and friends.

To build and strengthen these relationships it’s important to dedicate time to them – no matter how busy life becomes for you.

Below are personal relationship tips we tweeted last month on Twitter. Please share these tips with your loved ones.

Reading social media posts isn’t the same as spending time with someone in person – posts represents the image they are trying to portray, not necessarily their true self.

Don’t kill small talk with one-word answers – embrace the short interaction – you never know if this person will become a life-long friend.

When vacationing for the first time with your new love interest, be prepared for behavior changes when plans don’t go smoothly – some people take things in stride, others behave badly.

If you find yourself being too clingy in your relationship, try to assess why – you may be fighting depression or your partner may have narcissistic tendencies. 

Friends show their true colors when you go through a divorce – close friendships may end but look for new friendships that may blossom.
