‘It’s not always rainbows and butterflies. It’s a compromise that moves us along’. These lines from the song She Will Be Loved, by Maroon 5 perfectly describes this article’s topic on Healthy Relationships.!!

Healthy relationships are key to maintaining good social and mental hygiene. They are a cornerstone of healthy mental well-being. Man is a social animal and cannot live in isolation. Relationships form an important part of his/her life and these connections help him nurture his needs of belonging and acceptance. According to the renowned psychologist Maslow, emotional relationships drive human behavior.

What Makes a Relationship Healthy

Relationships require effort and a strong connection; they thrive on commitment and a sense of mutual trust and authenticity. Staying in love is very different from falling in love, the former isn’t just a choice, it needs commitment and work every day.

Here are 9 Signs You Are in a Healthy Relationship

1. You communicate openly and honestly

Good communication is an essential part of every relationship. When you and your partner are comfortable in expressing your needs, desires, dreams, and fears openly and honestly, it is a sign of a healthy and strong relationship.

2. You are not afraid of disagreement

When two people come together, conflicts will arise because of different thought processes and experiences. Healthy relationships do not differ when it comes to conflicts and disagreements, however; they involve a respectful difference of opinions and conflict resolution without humiliation.

3. You value emotional connection with each other

You appreciate and make your partner feel special and loved. You share intimate moments with each other, which is not just physical, it is mental and emotional intimacy, which is priceless.

4. You value your own space and give your partner the same

You pursue your hobbies and interests and do not spend every waking moment with them; you prioritize yourself without compromising or minimizing your partner.

5. You trust each other

Relationships involve mutual trust. Having trust in your partner means not prying on each other, or constantly checking his/her phone messages or social media activities. It means respecting your partner’s space.

6. Your relationship is your safe place

Your relationship is your stable place, space where you can lean on when hard times fall, or when happy moments are to be shared. It is a place you come back to at the end of the day, no matter how bad the argument or fight is.

7. You find joy

Relationships are fun, that does not mean that it is not a roller-coaster full of ups and downs, it just means that you find joy in simple things like cooking a meal together, going for walks or playing games together.

8. You respect each other

You respect your partner’s dreams, fears, and opinions. You do not belittle or make fun of their fears but treat each other with kindness and love. Respecting each other means respecting the relationship and not taking each other for granted.

9. You do things for each other

Your partner’s happiness means the world to you, you frequently engage in doing things for each other. Whether it is meeting their friends, or attending ‘boring’ parties if it means so much to the other person. You shop for each other or help them do things to ease off their load.
