8 Signs That The Relationship You’re In Is A Healthy One
You’re in the best relationship!
You’re in a very happy place at the moment. Your relationship is at a stage wherein you have established some sense of comfort and consistency. You are stable and you are going strong. There are no signs of slowing down and you feel like you are currently unstoppable. It’s as if you’re caught in a dream and you’re anxious about waking up from this euphoria that you are in.
It all seems a little too good to be true and now you’re left to worry about the prospect of a harsh rain cloud being just around the corner. You don’t think that something seemingly as perfect as this could possibly last for so long. You think this kind of consistent happiness just isn’t sustainable. And that’s a normal mindset to have when you’re in a really happy relationship. You shouldn’t feel bad about seeing the possible bad out of the good at all. It’s perfectly common for people to want to brace for the bad times in case they come.
You don’t want to be that person who gets blindsided by euphoria. If something is wrong in your relationship, you want to know about it so that you can correct it right away. But that’s just the thing. Everything seems just a little too perfect right now and you’re left feeling skeptical. You’re left to wonder whether your relationship is really as health as it seems, or if you are just choosing to see the good parts of it.
Don’t worry. To put your mind at ease, here are a list of signs that you can check out to see if your relationship is actually as legitimate as it seems. If your relationship applies to a lot of the items on this list, then you really are in a good place and it’s highly likely that your good stretch is going to continue for a long time.
Here are a few signs that you are in a really healthy relationship with your partner.
1. Most of your day is spent in anticipation to see each other.
You are both always just looking forward to spending time with each other. You can’t wait to be together because that is when you feel most comfortable. You always find strength and solace in the presence of your significant other.
2. You are always looking to help each other through problems.
You don’t necessarily live your individual lives alongside each other as a lot of couples tend to do. You share your lives. You share your problems. Whenever one suffers, the both of you suffer. That’s why the both of you treat yourselves like a team; you take on the challenges of the world together.
3. You have a very active sex life.
Sex isn’t as taboo as it once was and for good reason: it’s a lot of fun. It’s a great way for modern couples to express their love for one another. It shows that you trust each other and are perfectly comfortable with being vulnerable around one another.
4. You feel like you are a much better person because of your relationship.
You know that your relationship has made you a better person overall and you don’t want that to change. You just have a better outlook on life. You are more positive and driven. You are more willing to face the troubles of everyday life because you know that you can take it with the help of your relationship. – Continue reading on the next page
5. You encourage each other to have lives outside of your relationship.
Neither of you are defined solely by your relationship. You still manage to live your individual lives outside of your relationships. You are still afforded the time and resources to find success in your careers. You are still free to explore new hobbies and interests. You are free to live other aspects of life and your relationship doesn’t hold you back from doing so.
6. You don’t carry grudges against each other.
You have your share of arguments but they always get resolved. You never sweep your feelings or problems under a rug. You always try to find some closure. You never want to be harboring any unresolved issues throughout your time together. You always let go of any grudges or ill feelings that you may have for one another.
7. You always know how to prioritize the needs of the relationship.
You know how to compromise for one another. You know when to place the needs of the relationship above your own personal needs. You are always very quick to put yourself in second place so as long as you maintain the harmony and balance of your relationship.
8. You never look to demean or belittle one another.
You always respect one another regardless of the setting or the environment that you’re in. You never try to bring each other down with harsh comments or criticisms. You are always very careful with the words you use around each other. You are never in the business of hurting each other’s feelings just for the hell of it.
