What if there was one thing you could do to be a better friend, partner, or spouse?
It’s actually pretty easy: to improve any relationship, honor the other person’s dreams.
Figure out what they want to do, to become, or achieve, and then help them do it. Don’t do it for them—it’s their dream, after all—but show interest and offer tangible support.
