What makes a healthy relationship?

Every relationship is different and unique in character, circumstance as people come together for many different reasons. Part of what defines a healthy relationship is sharing a common goals and interests which leads to finding a mutual understanding and agreement for exactly what you both want from the relationship and how or where you want it to go. And that’s something you’ll only know by talking deeply and honestly with your partner.


However, there are also some characteristics that most healthy relationships have in common. Knowing these three basic principles can help keep your relationship be meaningful, fulfilling and exciting whatever goals you’re working towards or challenges you’re facing together.

Our 3 Must For a Healthy Relationship

Respect - In the relationship means that you both hold each other in high regard. When you respect someone, you admire them for certain qualities they possess and/or the character they embody. Respect in your relationships builds feelings of trust, safety, and wellbeing. Respect doesn't have to come naturally – it is something you learn.

Respect means that you accept somebody for who they are, even when they're different from you or you don't agree with them.o

Trust - In each other means you take each other at your word. If one person says they’re going to do something, the other person assumes they’ll do as they say. If someone makes a mistake, the other person expects them to be honest and tell them. In fact, trust really just comes down to each person being completely honest with the other, even when it’s uncomfortable.

Assured reliance on the character, ability, strength, or truth of someone or something, because you feel safe with them and have confidence that they will not hurt or violate you.

Affection - In healthy relationships is freely given and received. Healthy couples don’t need to remind themselves to show their partner that they love and appreciate them. They just do. And the recipient receives affection with affection rather than turning it away or taking it for granted. If physical contact and sex are important for the relationship, each person engages enthusiastically (of course, no one will always be “in the mood,” but for the most part, this should hold true).

The flow between two people, where each individual is giving and receiving a certain amount of contact and interaction at all times.

Healthy relationships are built from commitment, mutual respect, and effort. While you probably you may feel an immediate and effortless spark when you first met, it takes time and work to maintain that spark as your relationship develops—but don’t worry, try to make it fun as it can turn out to be one of the most rewarding work you’ll ever do. While every relationship is different, you can always work to improve your bond, friendship, and intimacy.

If you are having problems with communication, trust or intimacy in your relationship it's helpful to identify the "why"—is it something left over from childhood? Are they feeling hurt by you? Do they just have a different idea of what it means to communicate or be intimate? Try to bring these questions up with them and explore what you both need when it comes to these issues If this doesn't help try to seek professional help from a relationship counsellor who can help navigate trapped emotions and help you both to explore different ways of communicating.
