Relationships are a big part of our lives and help us maintain a social support network that is crucial to our health. They can be positive or negative but often they involve a mix of both.
Whether we are dating, in a committed relationship, or married, relationships can be tough. Too many couples panic and decide to throw in the towel after a few disagreements. This is a shame because most healthy relationships are capable of thriving long term, if the couple is willing to work on the problems. Unless the relationship is involved in severe issues such as domestic violence, addictions, or legal problems, it is always worth trying to work through the rough patches.
You can trust your significant other to keep your best interests at heart. You can share your thoughts and feelings without fear of judgment or backlash. You can reach a compromise and find ways to understand each other’s point of view. You can also talk about your dreams and goals with one another. This may include discussing career paths, family planning or personal growth.
You feel a deep connection with your partner that can’t be explained. You are excited to spend time together and want to plan future activities. You are both committed to working on your relationship. You are a team that fights together against the barriers of life and for your goals and dreams.
