Things To Remember About Relationships

Relationships can be difficult and especially if our past experiences with relationships have been less than ideal, building a healthy relationship can feel challenging.

Whether you’ve been in a relationship before or this is your first, here are a few things that are essential for a healthy relationship.

  • Even healthy relationships might trigger you, and that isn’t always a sign of anything being wrong with your partner or your relationship.
  • Communicating your needs clearly and directly saves you from a lot of resentment.
  • Making an effort to hear and understand someone else’s perspective (even when you disagree) can make a big difference.
  • Conflict can be very healthy, as long as it’s followed by intentional repair.
  • The end of a relationship doesn’t mean that you’ve failed.
  • Everyone will being their own patterns and experiences to relationships, and it’s important to be self aware and able to communicate about this.
  • When you don’t communicate your needs and boundaries, you’re doing a disservice to your relationship.

What else would you add? Do this resonate with you or do you disagree. Let’s talk.
