Well relationships can be hard or easy as you make them. Well, I have come a long way in relationships and the only thing which I have understood that it is not tough work if you both understand each other and make each other your first priority. Make yourself a better person and diminish your insecurities because mostly our own demons get between the best thing we have.
1. Be friends
The most important thing for me in a relationship is to be friends with your partner. With friendship you can grow above the expectations,mistakes and communication gap.
