If Your Relationship Is Healthy, It Should Have These 7 Qualities

Does your relationship have these qualities?

Compatibility is the name of the game when it comes to crafting an ideal relationship. There are just so many things that have to fall into place in order for a relationship to really work out. You have to be sharing compatible values, personalities, and goals with your partner in order for you to have a shot at going all the way. And even then, sometimes it doesn’t work out. There are just too many elements that need to be factored in when it comes to ensuring success in a relationship. That is why it is a big lie whenever people claim that they know the secrets to always finding success in a relationship. There are no secrets. It’s always just a matter of trying your best with it and hoping that things will turn out for the best.

However, that doesn’t give you the license to be complacent in a relationship. Just because you’re not guaranteed success in love doesn’t mean that you get to play things loose and that you shouldn’t care anymore. You should still be exerting maximum effort and commitment into the relationship for things to work out. You have to go into relationships wholeheartedly. You have to invest yourself entirely. You can’t be nonchalant about it too. You always have to let your passion pour forth without suppression. You have to get comfortable with being uncomfortable. 

So again, while there is no foolproof blueprint for making a perfect relationship, there are some common trends that can be found within the strongest kinds of couples. Here are some traits that are consistently found within the best and healthiest kinds of relationships.

1. Trust

Trust is an important aspect of any relationship. It’s largely the point of getting into relationships in the first place. You start to develop a trust and comfort level with a person that you can actually rely on to take care of you. There’s no point in being in a relationship with a person you just can’t trust. That is just going to be a recipe for disaster. You always have to be able to trust the person that you’re romantically linked with. 

2. Commitment

Commitment is always going to be important in all important things in life. All difficult endeavors of the world will always require commitment. You can’t expect to find success in your careers if you don’t commit to it. It’s the same with love. Without committing yourselves to one another, then you are essentially dooming your relationship in the process as well. You should both be investing and immersing yourselves in your love for one another. – Continue reading on the next page

3. Honesty 

Relationships always require high levels of honesty. Your significant other should be the person with whom you can entrust the truth at all times. You should also respect your partner enough to let them know that they always deserve the truth from you. When you lie to someone, you are essentially saying that this person is not worthy of the truth. In a loving relationship, you wouldn’t need to be hiding things from one another. 

4. Adventure

You can’t afford to stagnate in your relationships. You can never allow yourself and your partner to get stuck in a rut. There should always be room for impulsiveness, spontaneity, and adventure in the relationship. You should both be willing to shake things up every so often because that’s how you learn and grow as a couple. When you deliberately place yourselves outside of the comfort zone, you will really be forced to discover more about what your relationship is really made of. Go and travel together. Try out new and exciting activities as a couple. Stop limiting yourselves to staying in your safe spaces. 

5. Laughter

When it’s all said and done at the end of the day, you just want to be happy with your partner. You should always be looking to share smiles and laughter with one another. As you grow older and when the looks start to fade away, you will only have each other’s personalities to play with. That’s why having and developing a sense of humor as a couple is always very important. A life without laughter is a sad life indeed. 

6. Freedom

Yes, in a relationship, you lose some aspects of your freedom. Because you have chosen to commit yourself to another person, you have to adjust your concepts of personal time and space. You need to be able to share and invest huge chunks of yourself into the relationship. However, that doesn’t mean that you are subject to the control of your partner. Both of you should still have the freedom to pursue your individual desires despite the fact that you’re in a relationship. 

7. Friendship

Lastly, you need to be each other’s friends. You have to be there for one another not just during the good times. You have to help pick each other up when there are stumbles. You have to be able to be each other’s companion as you traverse through life’s treacherous waters.
