We’ve all been there: you see a cute couple out in public and you think to yourself, “They’re so happy.” Or maybe you’re the one in the relationship that everyone is always telling how great it looks. You know what we mean. It’s not just looks, though—there’s something about that couple that makes them seem like they’re on a whole different level from everyone else.
We know what you’re thinking: “I want to be there!” But here’s the thing: it doesn’t matter whether or not your relationship is picture perfect right now, because we can all learn something from those relationships that seem to have it all figured out. And that’s exactly what we’re going to talk about today!
Being in a healthy relationship is the dream of many people. But not everyone knows how to make that happen! Like any other skill, it takes practice and there are some things you need to know about building a healthy relationship.
Your relationship is a living, breathing thing. It’s important to keep it healthy and growing. There are seven key factors that influence the progression of your relationship in some way; Accountability, Safety, Honesty, Cooperation, Trust & most importantly, Respect.
I hope this guide has helped you better understand why healthy relationships are so important and how you can take steps toward building one. If you’ve read through the guide, looked at all of the examples, and still feel like something is missing, then I would encourage you to ask yourself these questions: Do I have respect for myself and others? Do I listen to my partner when they speak? Am I willing to do whatever it takes to make sure that we both feel good about ourselves when we leave our home or office at the end of each day? If you answered yes to all three questions (or two out of three), then congratulations—you already have what it takes!
