A strong and healthy relationship is built on the three C's: Communication, Compromise and Commitment.
A meaningful relationship is characterized as a relationship that is of personal significance, is healthy, caring, and long-lasting, and is one we couldn't do without. It's with a person who helps us grow, supports and encourages us and is there for us when we need them. And a toxic relationship is a relationship characterized by behaviors on the part of the toxic partner that are emotionally and, not infrequently, physically damaging to their partner. ... A toxic relationship is characterized by insecurity, self-centeredness, dominance, control.
One of these many important goals you should set for your relationship is first making it a priority. At this point, you have become two and not just one; in other words, you are not just catering to the physical; emotional needs of just yourself but that of another person too.
Secondly, spending one-on-one time together to reconnect is another very important goal you need to set and actively make sure it is achieved.
The most important element of this connection time is that you are fully present for each other. This means you aren’t looking at your phone, doing a task, or watching television. You are fully focused on each other.
Every relationship is different, and there is no single test that will tell you for sure whether yours is healthy.
Choose to love your partner every day!
Everything that makes a relationship “work” (and by work, I mean that it is happy and sustainable for both people involved) requires a genuine, deep-level admiration for each other. Without that mutual admiration, everything else will unravel.
Happily Ever After doesn’t exist. Every single day you wake up and decide to love your partner and your life. Some days it’s a struggle and some days you feel like the luckiest person in the world.
Most people never reach this deep, unconditional love. They get addicted to the ups and downs of romantic love. They are in it for the feels, so to speak. And when the feels run out, so do they.
Some people get into a relationship as a way to compensate for something they lack or hate within themselves. This is a one-way ticket to a toxic relationship because it makes your love conditional — you will love your partner only as long as they help you feel better about yourself. You will give to them only as long as they give to you. You will make them happy only as long as they make you happy.
This conditionality prevents any true, deep-level intimacy from emerging, and chains the relationship to each person’s internal dramas.
