Ten Essential Ingredients of A Healthy Relationship
Can you have a Healthy Relationship without any squabbles? Hmmm…in my opinion, this is indeed challenging! To my knowledge, humans cannot co-exist without a healthy relationship. So, how do you maintain one? To do this, you need to put on a thinking cap.
Do I have to juggle and balance love, patience, tolerance, understanding, confidence, commitment and self-esteem? Or do I have to throw caution to the wind and say calmly, ” I give up! “
Remember, the vital survival of a Relationship depends on you and these Essential Ingredients:-
Honesty is one of the most vital importance of any relationship. Honesty is the thing that will keep your relationship in its best health. If you’re going to open your heart to someone, you need to make sure that you are going to be honest. You need to make sure that you’re not going to hold back the truth, that you’re going to share the truth, and that you’re going to be honest.
To be honest, you need to make sure that you’re going to be open and honest and that you’re not going to hide things from each other. You can’t hide the truth. Honesty is the number one component in a healthy relationship. Honesty doesn’t mean that you’re always going to be right, but it does mean that you’re always going to be able to express the truth.
Simply put, couples who can’t make up will break up! Without forgiveness, neither is capable of letting go of the past.
We must learn how to communicate and ride through the storms. Disagreements are part and parcel of every relationship, but to weave through them, partners must learn different ways of communication and walk in their partner’s shoes.
Love alone is not enough. You need to trust. You need to know that your partner really loves you and that they have your best interest in mind. We don’t really know, and we may never really know what’s going on inside the heart and mind of our partner, but we do know that they are committed to us. When you want to open your heart to a new relationship, you need to find someone that has the same commitment to you that you want in your relationship.
Letting your heart open to a new relationship can be very scary, but it’s also incredibly liberating. You can’t truly open your heart to a new relationship unless you’re open to the things you’ve never felt before. You can’t truly open your heart to a new relationship unless you are ready to admit that there’s so much more to life than just what you’re familiar with. The biggest thing that we don’t do very often is to be open to new things. If you’re going to open your heart to a new person, you need to open your heart to everything.
You need to open your heart to what is not yet known. You need to open your heart to what you’ve never felt before. You need to open your heart to new ways of living and new ways of being. You need to open your heart to new ways of loving. You need to be open and open-minded to all kinds of new experiences. You need to be open and open-minded to everything that’s new and different and wonderful. You can’t close your heart if you want to have a happy relationship, a healthy relationship, a relationship that lasts. You have to be open to the possibility that it could get better. You have to open your heart to new possibilities, new emotions, and new things.
Your relationship won’t survive if you are closed off to new things. It won’t survive if you don’t open your heart to a new person. You have to be willing to be open to the person that you’re going to be with, and you have to be open to the things that they want to share with you. You can’t truly open your heart if you don’t open your heart to what’s new and different and wonderful.
This is important to sustain a relationship. Both must rely on each other as genuine and sincere friends–not only as lovers. We are aware that when the passion wanes, the reality is…that the bond of friendship keeps people together in any circumstances.
Love comes from the heart. Love comes from the soul. Love means many things to many people. Love is that which we feel when we see a picture of our child, we feel love for our partner when they get that big raise at work. We love when our partner takes us out to a movie or dinner. We feel love when we give them a hot hug. In reality, love is something we feel deep inside, and it’s something that we never feel. Love is really something that is within us and it’s really something that is so precious, so special, and so sacred.
Love doesn’t mean sex. Sex means many things, but love means something more; love means to give up yourself in that moment and give your partner the most intimate moments of your body and your heart and your soul. The secret to a healthy relationship is to give yourself up to that relationship. That’s what love means. That’s what is so special about that. Love means to give up yourself and give your heart, your soul and your body.
With patience, you will undoubtedly have the tolerance to cope with each other’s issues and imperfections with understanding. Then you will have the bond to bind you through the rough and tough times. Marriages don’t simply end because of problems. They break up because both parties quit trying–to solve those problems!
Passion is another essential ingredient to sustain each other in love. Whilst the tide may ebb and flow with time, your genuine passion for each other–is at the heart and soul of a long-lasting, healthy relationship!
We talk a lot about commitment. That’s a big part of why so many relationships fail. It’s very easy to talk a big talk about being committed, but the reality is most people aren’t committed enough. A big part of being committed means actually getting through all the hard times. People make big commitments to the New Year, to their jobs, to their finances and to their health, but the reality is a lot of us simply revert to being “me”. We revert to our old ways, go out, party, sleep with other people, work late nights, work too hard, get tired, and sometimes get really sick. We just reverted. We revert back to what we were doing before because that is who we are. The good news is we can decide to change our behaviour.
We can decide to make a different choice, make a different commitment, and make a different set of choices. We can make a new commitment and commit to that every day, and we can do it with our partner too. We can consciously decide to be committed to ourselves, our goals, our dreams, our health, and our relationships. That’s a commitment that is both very hard and very rewarding. We want to commit to our partner, but we’ve got to commit ourselves too.
Love and trust alone isn’t enough. Love and trust alone won’t make your relationship last forever. Love and trust alone won’t make it work well. If you want to be able to be in a healthy relationship, you’re going to have to sacrifice, but there’s a difference between sacrificing and losing. The most significant relationship is the one that’s going to let you sacrifice yourself for your partner. The most significant relationship is the one that’s going to be there no matter what you sacrifice for your partner.
If you want to have a healthy relationship, you will have to sacrifice, but you will have to sacrifice because you love. You’re going to have to sacrifice because you love. You’re going to have to sacrifice because you care. You will have to sacrifice because you want the best for your partner.
