Relationships are the connections you make with people in your life. They can be family relationships, friendships, acquaintanceships, and romantic relationships. These relationships are a big part of our lives and can add meaning and purpose.
Having positive relationships in our lives can help us to cope with the ups and downs of life, feel happier and more confident, and encourage us to take risks and chase after our dreams. However, it is important to remember that a relationship should never be all about one person. It should be a partnership with equal compromise, respect, and understanding.
When a couple is in a healthy relationship they often show affection to each other regularly. This can be physical touch, hugs, words of affirmation or kisses. They also show appreciation for their partner by sending gifts and doing nice things for them. If they have sexual relationships, they are open and honest about them. They are respectful of each other’s alone time and don’t interfere with or make fun of each other’s past and current relationships. They are able to discuss their feelings and beliefs in a supportive way and handle insecurities or jealousy with kindness.
A partner should be a source of joy and happiness in your life but it is important to remember that they aren’t your end all and be able to meet your own needs as well. It’s also not okay for a partner to physically abuse you or damage your things.
