HEALTHY RELATIONSHIP

What is a healthy relationship?

A relationship is as healthy as each person in it. This includes social, financial, physical, psychological and spiritual health. As long as the strengths of one person are enough to compensate for the weaknesses of another, it will work.

What are the qualities of a healthy relationship?

You know you are in a healthy relationship when you can do 3 things:

  • Freely express your feelings;
  • Share what’s on your mind without the fear of being judged or misunderstood;
  • Find the time to hear your partner.

Why are healthy relationships important?

In a healthy relationship, each partner can fulfil their needs and share the joy with someone they love.

How to build healthy relationships?

A healthy relationship shares the strengths and helps with the insecurities of each individual.

We all have strengths and weaknesses, skills and talents, fears and insecurities. An array of variations makes us who we are. When we form a relationship, we bring our individual qualities into one place. To build a healthy relationship, both partners need to know what they are bringing into the relationship.

Couples can resolve most issues using effective communication and applying simple coaching techniques.

What is a toxic relationship?

I came across this new term and thought I’d say my piece. An intoxication means poisoning. So much like with a hangover, you feel unbalanced in your relationship. You may not have the clarity of thought because of the emotions clouding your judgement. An infatuation is a pleasant form of intoxication.
