Unfortunately , today there are many types of relationships between people and many of them are toxic. Relationships that poison and hurt the hearts of those who suffer from them … They can even be self-destructive. We are not only talking about love relationships, but also relationships of any kind, since social interactions can take many forms.

You need to be aware that a healthy relationship is what you need to have a healthy social life. Next, we are going to comment on some of the signs that tell you that you are in a healthy relationship and that it is undoubtedly worth keeping that bond. It is time to stop idealizing relationships between people because of cultural influences. Relationships want work for them to be successful.

1. Trust

One of the pillars of any relationship is trust . Confidence is actually a mathematical assessment that is revised over time. Each person continually assesses their level of trust as the relationship grows.  This evaluation is based on the knowledge of the relationship, the empathy that is given and received, the amount of trust in the other person and the understanding that is felt. The more the trust, the better the relationship.

2. Communication

Good communication means being open and honest, being vulnerable and honest with your feelings, and sharing important ideas that are meaningful to you. Healthy communication also means knowing when to raise issues and reading body language to assess how the relationship is going.

3. Respect

Respect in relationships implies a high respect and admiration for the qualities and abilities that the other person possesses . People in healthy relationships not only value these qualities and abilities in their significant other, but are also proud to share them out loud.

When you feel heard and understood, welcomed, valued, and considered in everything you do, you are respected. Healthy relationships may not have this concept as an exact science, as we all get a little tired or can’t always give others what they need, but as long as that person feels respected most of the time. … the relationship will prosper.

4. Values

Sharing values is essential for a healthy relationship. This can be anything from how you like to spend money, what parenting techniques you guide your children with, what you want to do with your free time, or what you think is important in the world.

People can start a relationship with similar values, and as it develops over time, interests can change.  However, as long as you are aware of the importance of a collective value system in your relationship, you will remain in the healthy range of relationship work.

5. Fellowship

Not surprisingly, sharing the same interests and activities maintains a healthy relationship. When people like to do the same things, like going to yoga on weekends, taking cooking classes with friends, or traveling, you can appreciate life with others.

6. Have a difficult time together

Life is full of ups and downs.  During your life, you are likely to experience the loss of loved ones, tragic events, pain and grief that is never fully repaired … The way you share these moments with your friends can make or break your relationship forever.

Getting together during life trauma will help keep your relationship as balanced and stable as possible. When you are in tune with that person’s pain and at the same time managing yours in a healthy way, you can both help each other get through the pain rather than dissolving the connection when individual challenges arise.

7. Apologize from the heart

In any relationship there will always be mistakes made and apologies needed. Nobody is perfect and conflicts can be created between people. It will inevitably hurt other people’s feelings, but you will also need to allow time for emotional healing before apologizing.

Later apologies are more satisfying because the person feels understood and recognized. Therefore, if you are able to listen to the other person and apologize for the mistakes you may have made, the relationship will be much healthier than if you are not friendly with regret or forgiveness .

8. Independence

One of the best gifts you can give anyone in your life is independence and space. Nobody wants to be around a person who is drowning or trying to grab all your time and attention. During childhood , our primary caregiver showed love by giving us the ability to explore our world. As adults, our significant other takes on the role of primary caregiver, and love feels similar but not the same.

People who have healthy relationships with adults need space to do the things they love on their own, and at the same time they know that important people will be there for them whenever they need them.

9. Loyalty

If you had to choose a person to carry out a project, would you choose that person important to you to carry it out? Relationships are like a team and in order to advance in the game you have to stay within the same team. This type of loyalty creates strength and trust within relational boundaries with each other and provides optimal health in your relationship.

10. Laugh together and let go

At the end of the day, when you are most tired, you need to laugh rather than get angry. Usually we don’t control what happens to us, but we do control how we react. If you are able to find the positive side of things, then the relationship will be healthy and will last for a long time or forever. Although sometimes laughing at things doesn’t always solve problems, it can relieve stress and pain, creating joy.

If you have all these things in your relationship, congratulations! You are facing a healthy relationship both as a couple, as a family or friendship that is worth keeping
