The Importance of Relationships


Relationships are a way to feel connected to the world around you. They can be as casual as a “acquaintance” or you can be very close with someone you are in a committed relationship with.

A healthy relationship involves mutual respect, care, intimacy, companionship and deep love with unflinching support for each other. It is important to have other relationships in your life in addition to your significant one so you are not dependent on this person for everything in your life.

It’s important to communicate regularly in a relationship. This helps avoid misunderstandings and allows you to be sure that you understand what the other person is saying, too.

A healthy relationship also allows both people to pursue their own interests outside of their relationship and to spend time with other friends and family members. If you are feeling jealous when your partner spends time with their friends or family, that’s a sign that the relationship is unhealthy.
