Caring Behaviours

By Pairs International Inc

Caring Behaviours

Caring behaviors are the little things that make your friends and family feel better and cared about. They are not monumental things. In happy relationships there are lots of caring behaviors occurring on a steady basis.

Many people tend to give others what they want for themselves. What you are getting that is not exactly what you want may be exactly what your friends or family want from you. Take the time to find out.

How would you complete the following sentence?

  • I feel cared about when...

What about during special circumstances, such as when you are sick, tired, worried, afraid or unhappy. What makes you feel cared about in these situations.

  • When I am sick, I feel cared about when others...
  • When I am tired, I feel cared about when others...
  • When I am worried, I feel cared about when others...
  • When I am afraid, I feel cared about when others...
  • When I am unhappy, I feel cared about when others...
  1. Create a list (see sample below) and write down ten specific behaviors that your partner does or could do that make you feel cared about, special, important.
  2. Post the list where it can be seen each day.
  3. Ask you partner to do the same on their own list.
  4. Do at least three caring behaviors from your partner's list each day.
  5. Review both lists each night.
  6. On your list put the date in the box beside each behavior your partner did that day and thank your partner for the caring you received.
  7. With your partners' list, note if there were positive behaviors you did that your partner didn't notice or mark, and, if so, gently call attention to them.
