How To Strengthen Bonds With Your Family

By Tyra Jackson

Everyone wants to have an affectionate and significant relationship among their family members. We believe to attain such this the family should have a good skills in dealing with people, particularly understanding the other persons situation and feelings, and being able to control one’s natural negative reaction to certain situations.

Every time you deal with your relatives, you are tapping on the skills. You should also learn to be understanding and to invest more time with relatives. This way you are positively working on your relationship.

Each positive interaction with a relative is like putting a deposit on your account, while each negative interaction is like a withdrawal. With each deposit, we build on our relationship making the family ties stronger, while withdrawals deteriorate the bond.

In our dealings, we do not bother ourselves about checking on the deposits and withdrawals of each day. However, if we take time to notice about the effects of these deposits and withdrawals in relation to our goal, we can work to live a better life in order for us to achieve our goal of having a family with good ties.

Here are some tips for you to follow to show acceptance of a relative, express his/her value in your life, see that they are well, and strengthen the ties that binds the family. They are the following:

Learn to sense what the other person is feeling in his or her situation. This would give you a better idea of why they are reacting to you in certain ways.

Next, control your reactions. Family is always close to the heart and they can make you or break you easily. Don’t let them do this. Be in control and don’t let anyone else control you. Exercise patience when you deal with them.

Learn to listen and be able to understand the other person’s feelings. Placing yourself on the other’s situation gives you a picture of how they are thinking, feeling and expecting from you. Equipped with this understanding, you respond responsibly.
