People love to share their passions. The things that they geek out about and have spent countless hours learning and perfecting are usually vital to their happiness. Pay attention to your partner when their eyes light up. Those hobbies or topics that spark a fire in them are important.
Having the attention of the person we care for and being seen as knowledgeable are huge boosts to confidence. So ask questions about these very important things. Pay attention as they teach you. Give them that confidence boost. Share in the things that bring them joy.
You don’t need to give up your own hobbies or loves to engage in the ones your partner loves but there should be some time investment. A supportive partner should also want to learn all about what brightens your soul as well.
If you have been with your partner for a while and you know all about each other then start something new together. Learning together and sharing that the new knowledge will allow you to re-experience those early days.
Having someone to share our passions with builds connections and empowers us. Sharing with our partners is important to building a strong and healthy relationship.
