How to Have a Healthy Relationship

I am no expert in relationships; in fact, I have my ups and downs in my relationships with siblings, peers, partners and others.

So, with this restraint, I can only be curious as to how to really have a healthy relationship and what the experts really say about it.

  • Have an open communication. It is never easy to be open to someone who will only cause an eventual rift but experience tells me that misunderstanding may prolong until things are unrepairable already. So, with a compromise, you and your loved one can be on the same ground;
  • Share similar interest but explore new ones. They say that opposite attracts while this may be true, having a partner that is entirely your opposite can be quite distressing and challenging. So, having similar interests can be your neutral and fun zone.
  • Be real. If you don't want to be abused or treated badly or misunderstood, simply be yourself.
  • Discuss openly critical issues like sex, money, vices, vanity and alike. Relationships require compromise, so, if you can't get your or your partner's commitment to make both sides agree, then, expect a persisting rift.
