How to differentiate between healthy and unhealthy relationships

God created people to love each other and feel the most wonderful feelings, enjoy life and give positivity and kindness to others. Whilst talking about a relationship between a woman and a man we have to consider that fact that no one is perfect and when a person does his best in this very relationship, it does not mean he will be treated equally well in another relationship. All relationships existing in this world have the potential to enrich people’s lives. Likewise, the same relationship can cause discomfort and harm.

There are healthy and unhealthy relationships and one way or another, we may find ourselves in either or both. Relationships are a necessity and an essential part of healthy living, but there is no such thing as a perfect relationship.

Here, we will give you an explanation of the difference between healthy and unhealthy relationships.

Healthy relationship

A healthy relationship is based on mutual respect, fairness, support, honesty and trust. Every relationship needs maintenance and time to make it work. There is more happiness than stress in a healthy relationship. Nevertheless, being in a healthy relationship means doing things with friends and family and having activities independent of each other. It also means discussing things, allowing for differences of opinion, and compromising equally. There is room for positive growth and you learn more about each other as you develop and mature. This type of relationship lasts longer. On the contrary, contempt surfaces in unhealthy relationships sooner or later as either of the partners gives up.

Unhealthy relationship

You care for and focus on another person only and neglect yourself or you focus only on yourself and neglect the other person. In unhealthy relationships, both partners strive to complete one of them because it is driven more by “about me” than “about us”. Unhealthy relationships give a feeling of pressure to quit activities you usually enjoy. You will notice arguments are not settled fairly. You may experience a lack of fairness and equality.

If your relationship has some of these characteristics it does not mean the end of your relationship. There is always a chance to change things for the better. By recognizing how these characteristics affect you, you can begin to work on improving the negative aspect of your relationship to benefit both of you.

There is a possibility that both healthy and unhealthy relationships will last a lifetime, but imagine the quality of life for the one who makes all the sacrifices.

    Quite true.. but we need to add the fact that we are in a different territory as the term “Ukraine brides” has become some kind of a brand which could go either way.. I feel there is a lot of growth awaiting the ladies from this country – yes your womanly qualities are a definite plus but your individual journeys are also important..!!
