Healthy Relationships

Relationships can be a great source of joy, as well as deep pain and anguish. While the need for human connection appears to be innate, the ability to form healthy, loving relationships is learned in early childhood, in the earliest interactions between an infant and their caregivers.

Healthy Relationships provide a sense of meaning in life. They can connect us to something bigger than ourselves, whether through a shared heritage or commitment to a cause. They also offer a platform to learn from others and to share our own unique perspectives.

A relationship can be a partnership, cohabitation, civil union, marriage or any other kind of formal or informal agreement that involves exclusivity, honesty and trust. The term is so broad and diverse that it’s impossible to create a definition that would suit everyone. However, a good place to start is by understanding that most relationships are a mixture of various kinds of relationships, from casual to committed.

Ideally, a romantic partner is someone who understands and loves you for who you are. They are a team that works together to fight the obstacles of life and for your dreams and goals. They are a person who is there for you when you need them, makes you laugh and feel safe, and brings out the best in you. Having someone who truly cares about you makes every day better than the last, and helps you to heal from your scars. They can also provide honest feedback and accountability, and support you in your quest to be a better version of yourself.
