Is Your Relationship Healthy?

Is Your Relationship Healthy?

20th Anniversary Issue   Years ago, the definition of a healthy relationship was that the couple got along, didn’t fight too much, and spent a lot of time with each other. Whether or not they had an emotional connection and intimacy, or a fulfilling sex life wasn’t part of the definition. I often ask my clients how their parents relationship was or is, because that’s the role model for their relationship. “My parents had a very good relationship,” I often hear them say. “What do you mean by good?” I ask. “They didn’t fight. They spent a lot of time with each other.” That may have been the definition of a good relationship years ago, but now most people want more. Following are ten signs of a healthy relationship . Kindness Is kindness more important to each of you than having your way, being in control, or being right? Do you each receive joy out of being kind to each other? Being kind rather than controlling with each other is essential for a healthy relationship. Spontaneous Warmth and Affection Do you and your partner well up with warmth and fullness of heart for each other and express it with affection? Are you each able to see the beautiful essence within each other, rather than just the faults? Are you able to get beyond the outer to the unique inner Self of each other? Do you enjoy sharing affection? Warmth and affection are vital for a healthy relationship. Laughter and Fun Can the two of you laugh and play together? Do you appreciate and enjoy each other’s sense of humor?...
