relationships are like a tango dance. As we all know, it takes two to tango. To have a healthy and long-lasting relationship requires equal effort from both sides of the relationship at most times. But also, there should be respect, a shared vision, or any other quality which connects the both of you, so when one side falls behind, the other can pull them up or wait for them to catch up.
Following are some signs your relationship is worth it!
- Even during difficult situations, there is no name-calling or disrespectful behavior between each other.
Even in healthy relationships, there are up, and downs and it is normal. But what’s not normal is to name-call or say anything that can hurt the feelings of each other. No matter how close you are to your partner, it is not right to disrespect them or let them disrespect you.
- Both of you can engage in deep and meaningful conversations without being judged or embarrassed.
We set the precedent for how we want to be treated in the relationship whether we do it intentionally or unintentionally. This is one of the major factors that caused both of you to either have meaningful and comfortable conversations or avoid meaningful conversations with each other. It is not too late to show your partner that you would love to talk about more meaningful things with them or let your partner know that you’re willing to engage in such conversations with them.
- You and your partner always motivate and support each other.
Being in a relationship is like teamwork. You both have to uplift, motivate and support each other to create a happy and long-lasting relationship. As I mentioned above, it takes two to tango!
- You and your partner understand the individual differences between you two.
It is very important to learn to find the balance between individual differences with the person you are in a relationship with. The key is to respect them for who they are. The differences between you two can make the relationship more adventurous and worth the journey.
- Both of you can acknowledge and accept your mistakes and actively try to not let them happen again.
No relationship is perfect. Mistakes are going to happen, intentionally or unintentionally. But both of you should actively try to avoid the mistakes from happenings and the same mistake shouldn’t be repeated. If the same mistake is happening repeatedly, it is not a mistake but an action, someone is choosing that action.
- Both of you constantly appreciate each other.
Having arguments and disagreements is normal in a relationship. But it is important to appreciate each other from time to time to express the love and respect you both have. Notice the small things that they do to you and let them know that you appreciate your partner for doing things they do for you, small or big.
- You and your partner never fail to make time for each other.
When you are in a healthy relationship, you should be able to see the signs that both of you enjoy being with each other. Give attention to them and let them know that you’d love to have more attention from them if they’re not giving you enough attention. If you’re not getting something you want from them like ‘attention’ you should be able to communicate with them about it. It’s not about pride. Communicating your needs with each other will help you to understand your inner selves more.
Communicating your desires is necessary to have a good time with your lover. Don’t expect your partner to read your mind.
Not every person has all these qualities with them, and it is quite normal. But the above signs are very much needed for a relationship to bloom happily and healthily.
p.s. there’s always room for growth and change!
