Healing is a lifelong commitment. Knowing oneself allows for recognizing oneself in others. This cultivates a divine love that flourishes.
Let's honor some healthy relationship green flags and focus on healing love.
The following content is part of a relationship series based on understanding certain behaviors' expressions. It is not my intention to put anyone down or encourage harmful behavior. This post is for informational purposes only.
6 Signs Of A Healthy Relationship
1. Communication & Understanding Is Key
Can you connect on a deeper level through communication? Clear communication and understanding are crucial in order to maintain a healthy relationship.
It's essential to recognize that men and women have different communication styles. Men focus on finding solutions, while women often express their emotions. This can sometimes lead to misunderstandings. However, if both partners are open and willing to understand each other's communication styles, it is a positive sign of a healthy relationship.
2. Mutual Respect
Men want respect. Women want love. However, respect goes a long way [both ways]. When there is mutual respect and appreciation, that can remedy many issues before they even start.
How others treat you reflects their self-worth, but what you tolerate or allow shows your self-worth.
3. Readiness To Heal
Everyone is going through a healing process. When you and your mate are aware of each other's triggers and consciously choose to work past them, it creates a safe space for vulnerability and opportunities for growth.
True intimacy extends beyond mere physical intimacy. It represents a safe haven where you can truly be yourself, free from any pretense. You can showcase your quirky and vulnerable side without fearing being judged or making mistakes, and the other person won't attempt to alter you, nor will you try to change them. When the conditions are ideal, people willingly and authentically share their strengths and help to correct each other's mistakes.
5. Encouragement Provides Sustenance
Are you playing small so you don't rock the boat? Are you receiving encouragement and support? Or does your inner fire feel stifled? When you surround yourself with confident people, they will inspire you to be confident as well. They will encourage you to become the best version of yourself, whatever that looks like for you.
6. Healthy Relationships Share Common Goals
Do you know where your union is heading? Are your goals aligned with each other's to reach that destination? It is okay if the journey looks slightly different as long as you both recognize and appreciate each other's contributions.
