It’s not just about having next to someone who will make us company or who can spend leisure time, a relationship involves much more than that, and finally, the desire of every couple is living together in a healthy union grow and strengthen over time.
1. Learn to communicate
Some people confuse communicating with talking too much; it’s not about quantity, but good communication requires that both strive to express their thoughts and feelings appropriately, by listening to others with genuine interest. A healthy couple is one who also gets to establish a good friendship.
2. The key is to trust
The distrust is the most prominent enemy of healthy couple relationships. Trust is earned, and if we are together with someone who does not deserve it, the best thing is to end the relationship before undermining our security and self-esteem, which will lead us never to manage to maintain a balanced union.
3. The importance of tolerance and patience
There is nothing more exhausting for a relationship than the constant desire of one party to make the other change. Changes in a relationship occur only when you want to do it genuinely and although it is not easy to tolerate the defects of our partner is necessary to do so patiently. It is very important to accept the other as he is and breathe deeply before creating a storm in a glass of water with small problems that do not deserve it.
Getting placed in the place of our partner and understand their decisions and thoughts is vital to lead a healthy relationship. If instead, we decide to go the way of negative criticism, offenses and psychological attacks on the self-esteem of the other, far from having a beautiful union we will be incubating a conflictive relationship that will not leave anything good.
In any personal relationship, respect is basic and when it comes to our partner much more. It should create a bond in which even in the moments of more anger we dare to disrespect the other, this is mutual and is one of the bases of a healthy relationship. Loving the other also means respecting him/ her.
6. Have fun together and separated
In a healthy relationship, both members get a space also to lead a social life in which they can have fun with their environment together as a couple and also separated, and it is necessary that each have a personal space without the other to maintain individuality. If there are respect and trust, it will not be a problem to have fun together or separated from time to time.
