There comes a point in every relationship where you need to make the decision whether to stay or go. You’ve been cruising along for a while and now you’re wondering if your relationship is making process or if it’s stuck in its tracks.
You express your individuality
While you may need to make compromises in a relationship, you should never have to sacrifice who you are and what makes you tick. In fact, your ability to maintain your individuality is necessary for the strength of your relationship. Your partner should encourage you to become more of the person you are meant to be, not detract from that. After all, it was your individuality that made you attracted to each other in the first place!
You like and respect who they are and how they carry themselves through the world. If you can’t respect the way a person lives their life, let alone admire them, it’s hard to keep any relationship going.
Your partner is trustworthy
He or she calls when they say they will and follows through on promises. It’s impossible to build trust in someone who does not keep their agreements.
Your partner is affectionate
They’re comfortable holding hands and showing other signs of physical affection in private and in public.
It’s the way that you express what you need and learn what your partner needs from you. If
you can’t speak your physical, emotional, spiritual, and mental needs to your partner or they don’t do a good job of listening to you, your relationship may be doomed to failure
You have freedom to pursue different interest
A sign of a healthy relationship is when trust has been well established, so your partner doesn’t need to check up on you or spend every moment with you. You can be out with friends doing an activity that you partner isn’t interested in and they are not worried about your infidelity to the relationship.
‘That’s nice, dear’ is not a great way to show enthusiastic interest for your partner and people in healthy relationships know that it takes more effort. Actively giving your attention to your partner and asking questions about their life shows that you care.
