At some point in a relationship everyone can’t help but wonder if they are in a healthy relationship. You shouldn’t worry if this thought crosses your mind. It’s completely normal to question your relationships, because when you do, you will either notice that it’s time to get out of the relationship or you’ll remember just how much you love and appreciate your partner. Here are some signs that you’re in a healthy relationship.
You Have Your Own Space
Just because you’re in a relationship together and you’re really close doesn’t mean that you should spend every single moment together. You should have your own space and time to pursue your own interests and friendships. Having hobbies and a social life will make you a more interesting person and will help keep your relationship fresh since both of you will have a chance to grow as individuals.
You Can Handle Disagreements
Just because you disagree over something doesn’t mean that you have to make a huge scene. Both disagreements and fighting is completely normal in relationships, as long as your fights are productive. This means that you should never resort to name-calling or other bad habits during fights. Instead, you should handle every fight and disagreement as adults. Remember that the purpose of every disagreement should be to understand your partner’s opinion and learning to appreciate it.
Your Relationship Is Your Safe Place
If you forget about all your problems when you’re spending time with your partner, then you should rest assured that you’re in an incredibly healthy relationship. It’s hard to find someone that you can truly rely on and who’ll make you feel safe no matter what. So, if your relationship is a safety net, then you shouldn’t question if your relationship is healthy or not.
You’re Always Honest
Communication is without a doubt the most important part of every healthy relationship. Although it takes time for you to open up and speak freely about your thoughts and feelings, it’s definitely worth it when you have someone to talk to about your problems, beliefs, and insecurities.
It can be very hard for some people to open up even if they’ve been in a relationship for a long time. This is because being open means that you have to be honest both to your partner and yourself, and that shows real vulnerability. Nevertheless, if you have a partner that you can trust and talk to about anything that you please, then you’re in an extremely healthy relationship.
You Make Each Other Laugh
All relationships are supposed to be filled with laughter and fun. This doesn’t mean that you should be laughing every moment that you spend together. Instead, it means that you take part in activities that you both enjoy and that find common interests and explore them together.
You Like Who You Are When You’re With Your Partner
If you feel like you’re your best self whenever your partner is around, then that’s a great indication that your partner is a great fit for you. You will feel like this only if your partner completely accepts you for who you are and loves you despite your flaws and imperfections. If you feel comfortable and safe around your partner that means that they love you for who you are and that your relationship is in a great place.
You Look Forward To Seeing Your Partner
If you always look forward to seeing your partner, even after a small absence, then you’re in an extremely healthy relationship. This means that you absolutely adore spending time with your partner.
