How to Have a Healthy Relationship
It is important to make your relationship a healthy relationship. Here are some ways to do so.
It is a sad truth that many people are not as worried as they should be about whether they are in a good relationship. Are you with the person that you should be with? Are you you with them for the wrong reasons? Are you compatible? Can you agree to disagree?
Many people are just happy to have someone, and is willing to let many things slide that they shouldn't because they don't feel that they are worth being treated better.
It is important to realize that a relationship must be healthy in order for the relationship to last.
You can try to "ride it out" by accepting harmful, insulting, or unhealthy behavior in your relationship, but in the end, it will not work.
To build a relationship that is healthy, you must start with communication. And let's not forget respect, common courtesy, and consideration, on which all good relationships are built. Forget this, and your relationship may start out, or become, an unhealthy one.
Warning Signs of an Unhealthy Relationship
If you cannot express your feelings and troubles to the other person (and vice versa) without fear of being ridiculed, dismissed, or ignored, then something is truly wrong.
Also, a good relationship does not include excessive jealousy, or controlling behavior.
If your partner is constantly monitoring everything you do, or if you are spying on your partner, that is not the right behavior.
Eventually, this type of behavior will make things worse and worse, until it eventually falls apart.
Again, only a relationship that's healthy, will truly prosper, so make sure that you are treating each other the right way!
