Perfection doesn’t exist. So get that unreasonable goal out of your head right now. You are never going to find yourself ina perfet relationship with a perfect person. You are always going to find something that’s wrong or that just doesn’t meet your standards.
And that’s okay. That’s normal. Just because a relationship is imperfect doesn’t mean that it can’t be a strong, happy, and healthy one. A relationship doesn’t need to be perfect for it to be great. In fact, some of the strongest relationships are the ones who are able to turn their flaws into a positive for their romance. It’s all a matter of approaching these imperfections with a healthy mindset and demeanor.
You probably already know that a happy relationship is one that doesn’t lack in communication, respect, commitment, trust, and intimacy. But really, what does a genuinely happy relationship look like? What tangible qualities can one expect to find in a relationship that is happy and full? What are the signs that the relationship that you’re in is one that is happy and healthy?
These are some of the most asked questions by people who are in relationships. And there’s a reasonable explanation for that. Most people would always want to know if the relationship that they’re in is a happy one because that’s the only way they know for certain that they are in a relationship that is worth fighting for.
When a relationship just doesn’t make the people involved happy, then there’s practically no point in having to put up with the dysfunction of that romance. It’s very important for people in relationships to maintain a sense of self-awareness in their love this way, they don’t end up blinding themselves from the reality of their situation.
So how do you know if you’re in a happy relationship? Well, there are a few things that you could be on the lookout for. Here are a few things that you are bound to find in a happy relationship:
1. You both become better people because of your relationship.
A happy relationship is always one that pushes you to become a better individual. It should be one that always adds value to your life. And if you feel like you are just a better-rounded and more holistically improved individual overall because of your love, then that’s a good sign that you’re happy in your relationship.
2. You don’t really have any insecurities or apprehensions in your romance.
You have nothing to fear about in your relationship. You aren’t afraid that your partner might eventually fall out of love with you or leave you for someone else. You aren’t afraid that you won’t be able to live up to the standards and needs of your partner. Overall, you feel very secure about the state of your love.
3. You can’t deny the chemistry that you have together.
Chemistry is always a very important determinant in a relationship. If you and your partner have an undeniable chemistry between the two of you, then you know that that’s always a good sign. Chemistry means minimal friction. And when there is Iess friction between two people, it makes more room for happiness.
4. You have willingly invested so much of yourself into the relationship.
You know that you are genuinely happy about a romance when you invest so much of yourself into it. This is especially true of people who struggle with commitment and vulnerability. If you are happy enough to actually allow yourself to be vulnerable to another person, then that’s always a good thing to smile about.
5. You know that what you have now is special compared to previous relationships.
If you’ve been around the block at least once before, then you probably already know that things you want to avoid in future relationships. So if you find that there are plenty of things in this relationship that you can be happy about when compared to previous romances, then you know that you’ve got something special there that you need to hold on to.
6. You really consider your relationship to be a real partnership.
It takes two to tango. That statement holds true for the dance and for a relationship as well. If you know that both you and your partner are both equally invested in this relationship, then you know that there are bigger chances of you making one another happy. Generally, a balanced love is always a happy love.
7. You both have shared goals and interests.
If you both have similar goals and interests as individuals, it will make being in a relationship so much easier. It’s really good for the both of you if you are able to find common ground without much difficulty. The less you disagree on things, the happier you are both likely to be with one another.
