Here is great article outlining the ten aspects of a healthy relationship. I agree with the central point in this article, which is that communication is key. When couples are unable to know and understand where they are at with their partner the bond in the relationship can feel unstable. By being able to clearly communicate our needs, hopes, fears, and desires, our partner can more readily respond to us. I know I am making this sound easy, and that communicating our needs to our partner can sometimes feel like we are talking to a brick wall, but communication and understanding is ultimately the key foundation to any healthy relationship. The more we can have our partner understand, the more we feel seen, appreciated, and heard. Hope you enjoy the article.
