When a storm is coming, all other birds seek shelter. The eagle alone avoids the storm by flying above it. So, in the storms of life may your heart be like an eagle’s and soar above.” – Author Unknown

Enjoy Long-Lasting Relationships!

You can attract others and enjoylong-lasting relationships.

Enjoy healthy relationships

You are a social human being and want to enjoy positive, long-lasting relationships with others.   Being physically attractive is a good start, but that is all it is.

Did you know that five behaviors will enable you to do this?

  •  Kindness

Being kind will draw others toward you.  It gives you a positive outlook on life, and a positive outlook makes others feel loved and appreciated.

Help others as often as you can and treat others the way you want to be treated.

  • Good Listener

Be a good listener and make others feel you understand them. This makes positive and long-lasting connections.

Being a good listener includes both active listening and understanding non-verbal clues.

Active listening enables you to let the other person know you understand what he is saying.

Non-verbal clues are body language.  Understanding someone’s body language enables you to realize how someone is feeling without him telling you.  When you understand someone’s body language, you can give him what he wants emotionally without him asking you for it.

Having positive connections leads others to accept you for who you are.

Smile even when you do not feel like smiling.  You will feel better and be more attractive to other people around you.

Smiling releases endorphins.  Endorphins improve your mood and make you more positive.  Then you want to smile more.  This cycle will make others want to spend time with you just because you are you!

  • Laughter

Like smiling, laughter releases endorphins.  It is good for your health, emotionally and physically.

People are naturally drawn to those who laugh and make them laugh in turn.

I make my husband laugh often through the silly little things I do.  When he laughs, I start laughing at myself.  Although we spend most of every day together, we never tire of each other’s company.

Laughter is one of the reasons we enjoy spending most of every day together.

  • Confidence

Believing in yourself and your abilities makes you feel better and others feel better about you.  It draws people closer to you.

You can develop confidence in yourself and in others.  Read how to do that here.


Being physically attractive is a start, but to have long-lasting relationships with others, you also need practice these five behaviors.

These behaviors can also lead to reduced depression and anxiety.

Parents, practice these behaviors as you raise your children.  Your children will emulate you and be more likely to enjoy long-lasting relationships as adults!

Soar like an eagle over life’s storms.  Behave in ways that enable others to accept you for who you are!
