5 Signs You Are in a Happy and Healthy Relationship
No relationship is perfect. However, there are relationships where the good outweighs the bad and the two partners are satisfied with the state of their relationship. We all want to be in a healthy relationship. Simply put, a healthy relationship brings out the best in you. Here are five signs to note if you are in a happy and healthy relationship:
1. You trust each other
You trust your partner, meaning you have confidence in them, can rely on them, and feel safe with them physically and emotionally. You trust your partner no matter who they spend time with or where they go. When you are consistent in your actions and words (you do what you say and say what you do), you are building trust.
2. You support each other
You encourage and inspire each other to be your best selves and to keep growing. When something negative happens, you and your partner are there for each other for comfort and support.
3. You are always excited to see each other
Even if you have been dating for years, the thought of seeing your partner at the end of a long day will always make you feel better. Many people find it hard to spend time away from each other, but seeing them again will make everything else seem worthwhile.
4. You think about the future
While you don’t obsess over the future, you sometimes think about the years to come. If you can see yourself with your partner and have plans for the future, it is an excellent sign for your relationship. This is also the simplest way to identify a committed, long-term relationship from a bad one.
5. You Fight
Disagreements are normal, so if you aren’t fighting, chances are you’re holding back. But when people in healthy relationships fight, they fight productively and fairly. That means avoiding name-calling or put-downs. It also means striving to understand your partner instead of trying to score points. And when you’re wrong? You apologize.
