Relationships are different to everyone in every way. But in order to a relationship to be healthy, it needs a few key rules!
Open and honest communication is the base of a healthy relationship. The first step is to make sure you both understand each other well. That means you need to talk to each other.
Creating boundaries is good to keep your relationship well and secure at a time. By this, you can both have a deeper understanding of each other’s needs. However, healthy boundaries shouldn’t restrict you to:
Go out with your friends without your partner.
Participate in activities and hobbies you like.
Not have to share passwords to your email, social media accounts or phone.
Respect each other’s individual likes and needs.
What Isn’t a Healthy Relationship?
Relationships that are not healthy are based on power and control, not on respect. In the early stages of a not good relationship, you may think the unhealthy behaviours are not a big deal. However, possessiveness, insults, jealous accusations, yelling, humiliation, pulling hair, pushing or other abusive behaviours, are considered as a not healthy relationship.
However, if you are in any kind of a not good relationship, you cannot change your partner but you can make changes in your own life to stay safe from your partner.
