Relationship is the way in which two or more people or things are connected, or the state of being connected.
Being in a relationship means you’re in a relationship with your entire partner; you can’t pick or choose which parts you do and don’t like. Along with the good comes the bad, and being a partner means embracing all of the person.
Being in a relationship, you have to be strong for each other. In life, there are bound to be experiences of ups and downs, good and bad. When your partner is going through tough or difficult times, it’s your duty to help, by offering support and being their strength.
Relationships has trying and difficult times, it’s not always a bed of roses. But it often get stronger during difficult times, depending on how you go about it, because it’s when you really learn how to be a partner to that person. You have to show your support, care and love to your partner and when you’re the one having a hard time, they’ll be there to offer you the same support.
Relationships bring people together as partners or team players. It has to do with you being committed to each other. Deciding to be in a relationship means you’ve chosen and agreed to be on your partners team (like you been a Manchester United fan because your partner is). Sometimes, it means putting their needs before yours. Don’t forget the word “sometimes”, it means, there could be a limit to you placing their needs before yours. The commitment, makes you considerate over any decision you have to make, be it small or big. You have to consider them when making decisions. In relationships, you make out space in your life for each other and work together as team players. You’re not just an “I” anymore, you’re a “we” and you have to respect that.
The fact that relationship is a ” we” thing, doesn’t mean that you can’t be yourself by embracing all the things that make you, you. Don’t just be yourself, but be the better and best version of yourself. Your partner will accept you the exact way you are, if it is a healthy relationship. They’ll never try to make you into someone or something you’re not. You cab try to change or take on the interests, hobbies, and habits of your partner, its definitely OK to do so. But don’t forget to stay true to your own identity. Being in a relationship doesn’t mean you can’t continue being an individual you were or used to be and maintain your own perspective on life. The differences in how you both see the world, brings you closer together. Don’t forget, that at the end of the day, you’re still responsible for your own individual happiness.
Relationships also deals with respect. One of the more crucial characteristics of a healthy relationship, if not the most crucial is respect. It is very important to approach every area of your relationship with respect. This balls down to being kind, knowing your partner’s limit and not doing something that would knowingly upset them. Having arguments in relationships is inevitable, but you can still do it from a place love.
This aspect of respect leads me to the main issue of toxic relationships.
