How resilient are you?

 

 

  1. YOU CAN HAVE HEALTHY CONFLICTS.

Even if you agree too everything and plan everything out there will be some differences and over coming those differences is a proof that you can be mature in a relationship and keep the needs of others before yours’. Often there re conflicts that might require a third party to interfere, there is no shame in that; hence if you think this conflict can be settled by someone else then you should go to couple’s therapy and make sure that the differences are sorted. By doing this you take a leap and establish a better communication system in the relationship.

Further, this not only strengthens your trust in your partner and they will make efforts to not le you down. This also opens up gates for new possibilities for you and your partner, like going on a trip and not having differences because you are able to communicate your feelings and thoughts more comfortably without any resentment.

 

  1. YOU BOTH HAVE A HEALTHY LEVEL OF INDEPENDENCE.

As much as relationships are about being there for the other person, they are not about becoming a liability. You and your partner do not wanna be dependent on each other. You might think your world has merged together but in reality it has not and you still have different lives. You will have independence to do things without your partner whether they like it or not they don’t get a say. And you need to take opportunities which involve personal growth without holding back because of your partner, as you can’t always rely on your partner.
