4 Facts That You Must Know For a Healthy Relationship
Healthy and unhealthy relationships are hardly ever accidents or simply mishaps; the truth is that they often the result of wrong assumptions and expectations of others. Having the right picture about what is possible and what is not really goes a long way to help one seek or choose healthy relationships.
Here are 4 important facts that are vital for anyone who wants to have a healthy relationship:
Relationships require effort
Nobody will show up perfect and completely fitting into all your likes and dislikes. You need to make a priority of working out your relationship. You need the timeless principles of love appreciation, forgiveness, acceptance and reciprocity with diligence if you really want things to work out.
Everything is not going to be magically perfect like a fairy tale; you need to keep blending because good relationships take work.
Don’t Ever Compare
Comparing partners and relationships can make you lose a good thing and end up in regrets. It always look better and rosier on the outside; resist the urge to compare your relationship with another, no matter who’s showing off or making unbelievable claims. Maybe they have a good thing going for them but who says it’s better than yours.
If you feel the need to leave a relationship, make sure it’s for the right reasons and not because of somebody else story.
Generally, in relationships, appreciating and nurturing the relationship you have will often make it stronger and sweeter.
You Can’t Change Anyone
Don’t go into a relationship hoping to change your partner when you get in; it won’t work.
If you don’t like and can’t accept what you see right now, you probably shouldn’t go into the relationship because people don’t change; they improve over time or get worse but if you have chosen someone that you love and fully accept with all his/her flaws, it won’t be too much if a problem.
Abuse is Not Acceptable
You should never compromise with physical or emotional abuse. Don’t stay in such a relationship believing that such a person will change.
You should never accept abuse and when it comes up in a relationship, the prevention is to stay away from it. Recognize the signs early so that you do not have to put up with it.
