  • Mutual Respect: You understand each other and have an understanding of each person’s values and boundaries.
  • Honesty: Honesty in all relationships is vital because it helps to strengthen the relationship through trust-building.
  • Trust: You give each other the benefit of the doubt.
  • Individuality: The people involved in the relationship have their own identity that isn’t founded on the other partner. People in any relationship mustn’t push physical, emotional, or different types of boundaries. Maintaining healthy relationship boundaries is an essential aspect of all partnerships.
  • Compromise: This is mostly seen in romantic relationships where partners acknowledge that they have to give as much as they take and respect each other’s perspective.
  • Open communication: Partners speak openly and honestly about issues that come up and avoid future miscommunication.
  • Anger control: No relationship is perfect, and there are bound to be episodes of anger. However, both partners need to ensure that they can manage their anger to express their issues effectively.
  • Healthy conflict resolution: All relationships have their ups and downs. Before things get out of hand, take a break, avoid insults, and then come up with viable solutions.
  • Self-confidence: When you feel confident about yourself, it reflects on your relationships. You’re confident and calm, and you allow other people to express their opinions without feeling the need to subscribe to yours.
  • Healthy sexual relationships: If you’re in a dating relationship or a marriage, your partner will not feel forced or pressured to do anything that would make them feel uncomfortable sexually. Also, any sexual activity is done only with the consent of both partners.
  • There’s room for growth: Relationships may get boring or stagnate because the people involved aren’t progressing. When people’s interests, goals, aspirations, fears and hopes change, it doesn’t mean that the relationship must come to an end. As long as both parties involved are flexible in their expectations, the relationship can grow too.
