Your healthy relationship is SUPPORTIVE!
When you have a supportive relationship, you can speak your mind freely.
Both parties trust that the other is speaking from a position of honesty. Communication is driven by compassion. You care about the other person and you want the best for them.
This allows you to speak openly, knowing that the other person will see positive intention in your words, whether they agree with them or not.
Your healthy relationship is RESPECTFUL!
Your healthy relationship is SAFE!
Communication is the most important thing in relationships. It forms the basis for respect and honesty.
Also it means that you listen to each other’s thoughts and opinions, and accept each other’s right to say no or to change your mind.
In a healthy relationship, both partners are comfortable letting the other person know how they are feeling.
You might disagree or argue sometimes, but in healthy relationships you should be able to talk things out together to reach a compromise that works for you both.
Your healthy relationship is FAIR!
To be fair to your relationship and to your partner, you don't need to constantly self-sacrifice. But you do need to consider your relationship and its needs as you would consider your own.
A key component of relationship fairness is balance. It is about finding the sweet spot that balances your needs, your partner’s needs, and your relationship’s needs.
Relationship fairness requires that you ask for your individual needs to be met while also considering the relationship’s needs and your partner’s needs.
Your healthy relationship is HONEST!
To form a healthy relationship with someone and become emotionally intimate, you need to share experiences and secrets with your partner that you don’t share with anyone else.
That kind of intense, intimate, highly private interchange requires both parties to be honest with one another. Honesty involves giving accurate information about events that are known or have already occurred.
