Good relationships make people grow. Both members of the couple feel comfortable and work to find mutual happiness.
Negative love relationships, on the other hand, make you fall into unhealthy lifestyle patterns. You will feel that your wings are being clipped, that your life is not as happy as it should be and that things are going badly.
Pay close attention to the 10 things you should never sacrifice for a love affair.
1 - Your happiness
Don't forget that you have the right to always live happy. There will be times when things don't work out that well, but your partner needs to be a source of happiness and fun in your life.
When your partner makes you sick often, it means that the relationship is unhealthy.
There are people who need to work on themselves before having a healthy and happy relationship.
2 - Your happiness
Do you laugh with your partner? There are discrepancies in all couples, but healthy relationships are full of happy moments.
It is important to have fun with friends, your partner and your family. Everyone needs to add a touch of joy to your life; it is good that your partner understands and respects this need.
3 - Your freedom
A healthy love relationship will give you a chance to be yourself, without your partner getting upset or restricting you.
Possessive behaviors are common in insecure people and there is nothing you can do about it.
A healthy relationship is made up of two people who have fun together but also spend time alone.
4 - Your inner peace
Inner peace is essential to be happy. A partner who continually makes you feel anxious, angry, nervous, or sad is a negative presence in your life.
It is common to see couples who spend all their time arguing. If that's the case for you, ask yourself the following questions:
- Does the relationship have a future?
- Is this how I want to spend the rest of my life?
- Does my partner make me happy? And do I make him happy?
- Is it worth continuing?
There are relationships that must be concluded so that the two people can have a full life and each follow their own path.
5 - Your experiences
Life is exciting. Over the years, you have experiences that fill you with knowledge and joy. Live as a couple it is an experience that can be satisfying, but it doesn't have to be limiting.
"Experience is not just what happens to us, but what we do with what happens to us" (Aldous Huxley)
It is important to have new experiences with your partner. Challenge each other and look for new adventures. In a couple relationship, you must feel motivated to experience new things with confidence and respect.
6 - Your personality
Your personality is representative of your person and the appropriate partner will love you with all that that implies. In a healthy relationship, neither is trying to change the other.
Love does not select the most beautiful features and those that should be eliminated. It is clear that you can change certain harmful aspects of your character, such as insecurity; however, one must have respect for the personality of the partner as a whole.
7 - Your relationships
When a relationship begins, you want to be alone with your partner. Over time, you realize that you also need moments with other people.
If you see that two months have passed and you never get a chance to see family and friends, you are probably in a possessive relationship.
It is important to have many relationships that support you; depending on your partner for everything is not healthy.
8 - Your feelings
Respect is basic in healthy relationships. Both people must be able to hear and understand each other's opinions and feelings without judging.
Do you pay attention to your partner's feelings? And yours are taken into consideration?
9 - Your dreams
In a good relationship, there is constant support. Everyone has dreams of him, but we must accompany each other along the way.
Ultimately, loving means accompanying the other in the search for his dreams.
10 - Your beliefs
Your beliefs and ideals are important. Nobody should try to change your faith or your religious beliefs. A couple whose members don't have the same beliefs can only function through mutual respect.
Be careful that your relationship does not hurt you if it breaks up, it does not forget you if it moves away, it does not bother you if it softens, but above all it does not burn you if it burns.
