How To Embrace A Healthy Relationship
Every relationship has its ups and downs, whether it’s romantic or otherwise. If they didn’t, the world would definitely be a very bland place! And sometimes, it’s the downs that set up straight and make us appreciate the ups. But, regardless of the dramas we experience from time to time, we all want our relationships to be as strong as they can be. We want our great loves, friendships and family ties to last a lifetime. And to do that, they’re going to need to be H.E.A.L.T.H.Y.
H is for… Honest
We all know that honesty is an important aspect of any relationship, but when you want yours to be as strong as they can be, you’re going to need to up your game. Trust and honesty go hand in hand, but without honesty in the first place, the great connection between the two just can’t be had.
E is for… Empathetic
Although it can be hard, if you want to be able to see your relationships go from strength to strength, you’re going to need to have empathy. Being sympathetic to the feelings of others, and doing your best to understand them, is often the key to making sure that you connect on the best level, in love and friendship.
A is for… Available
You should also aim to be available to your partner, friend, or family member as a part of your relationship. Closing yourself or appearing to be unapproachable can really put a strain on the relationship. Whether you’re looking to improve your social life or love life, being available is always a good starting point.
L is for… Loving
And of course, you’re going to want to let your guard down when it comes to love. Although it’s important in your relationship with your partner, being loving and caring with friends and family can be good too – just in a different way. Even if you’ve been hurt in the past, love is often the key to taking a relationship from strength to strength.
T is for… Trustworthy
As we all know, honesty is very closely connected to trust in a relationship. But trust always works both ways. So, you’re going to need to learn to trust people more and show that you too are trustworthy. When you can let go of your insecurities, you may finally find that you’re no longer held back in your relationships.
H is for… Happy
Happiness is often what we expect the result of our healthy relationship to be. But, when you project happiness into your relationships, it can have a strengthening effect. So before you think about calling a divorce lawyer or becoming estranged from a family member, learn to be happy in yourself. It could rub off on the relationship and do you all a world of good.
Y is for… Yes, I Can! Attitude
And above all else, you’re going to have to work with your attitude. Relationships are all about compromise, and sometimes you have to make a sacrifice that you’re not going to be 100% happy about. But, we all do at times. So, you’re going to want to switch your attitude from sassy to Yes I Can! and see if you can’t feel your bond strengthening already.
