Different Types of Relationships


Relationships are defined by the way you show someone that you care about them. Whether that means speaking kind words, putting in effort for them or giving them quality time, showing affection is a key part of a healthy relationship. If a person is not receiving the love they need in their relationship, they might begin to feel resentful or they may not be able to thrive.

There are a variety of relationships that people can have with one another, both romantic and nonromantic. They all help to make up our social support networks that are important to our emotional and physical health. Different types of relationships also provide opportunities to improve our communication skills and become better versions of ourselves.

While many of us think that being in a relationship is supposed to make you lose yourself, it can be beneficial if both people work towards maintaining their independence and individuality within the relationship. For example, a partner can encourage you to go on new adventures that you would not otherwise do because they know that your mental wellness is important to you. They can also remind you to take a supplement or schedule a doctor’s appointment if they notice that you are struggling.

They can also be your emotional support system, a shoulder to cry on, or an ally that believes in you even when you don’t believe in yourself. There is nothing like having a person who cheers you on as you push yourself to be your best.
