A severe trusting relationship allows us to be our true selves. Indeed, as it shows us how to love and be loved as well as who we want to become and who we should not.
In addition to increasing our psychological well-being, relationships help create stability, enable us to be good friends and partners, and give us someone to talk to when we face challenges. Humans have an inherent desire to be close to other people - to connect and build relationships. Relationships are crucial to our mental and emotional health and even our survival.
The compulsion for company while stranded on an island isn't healthy, but the ability to converse with a volleyball is. This compulsion to connect is because healthy relationships, whether romantic, friendships, or familial, make life more fulfilling. Being human is very dependent on social support; therefore, when social relationships break down or are damaged, they can significantly impact our mental health and well-being.
It should not be about just one relationship.
Rather than seeking everything from one relationship, I emphasize the importance of building a social support network that includes all types of relationships - romantic, friendship, associate - to help keep you well. Any two people who support, encourage and help each other practically and emotionally can form a positive relationship; communication is the most critical component of a healthy relationship.
In a relationship, here are some tips for healthy communication:
• You are not talking to yourself. Try to understand where the other person is coming from and how they see the world when talking to them.
• Don't let your predetermined beliefs keep you from hearing something different.
• Be attentive without preparing your response or rebuttal.
A healthy relationship tends to have the following features:
• In a romantic relationship, both parties need to communicate effectively about sex and intimacy to ensure that they are delighted with each other.
• Be trustworthy and respectful of each other.
• You always hurt the people you love. People in healthy relationships have the discipline not to treat their partners poorly. It's easy to show your worst side around people you are close to.
In addition, research has shown that relationships can improve a person's health, even if your relationship isn't romantic.
Here are five benefits of a healthy relationship.
1. Stress reduction - Having a partner can be a great buffer against stress since social and emotional support comes with a companion. Couples who live together are even happier than those who do not.
2. A better healing environment - Research suggests that having someone there to remind you to take your medicine, or being able to distract yourself from the pain, can make a big difference in survivorship for long-term partners recovering from heart surgery.
3. Adopting healthier behaviors - If you live with a spouse, friends, family member, or other loved one who encourages you to eat healthy, exercise, not smoke, etc. You're likely to follow in their footsteps.
4. Purposeful and more focused - Having a loving relationship, no matter the kind, can provide a sense of happiness and satisfaction for a person.
5. The ability to live longer - If you prefer to stay alone, that's great too, but forming close relationships could contribute to a more fulfilling and meaningful life.
When you have at least one good friend (or trusted co-worker, therapist, or counselor) who can help you cope with things like social anxiety or depression, it ends up being more than worth it. It might not be easy, but it might also be just what you need.
