Let me get you to think here, what is your definition of “healthy”?
You may have had a number of things cross your mind right, or even none at all?
Well, I honestly believe that we humans tend to evolve on what certain concepts mean to us depending on the experiences we face in our lifetime. It is possible that by the end of this blog your definition of “healthy” may drastically change, stay the same, or have no impact. It is very, very possible that you never thought about it until now.
I can certainly say that relationships aren’t just a bouquet of roses and chilling with each other. It’s also certainly not teen couples getting together and just partying after school. It is so much more than that!
But, as we evolve, so do our relationships, and some signs are crystal clear to know if you’re in a healthy relationship or not….. So here, I present to you, the TOP 5 indicators of a healthy relationship! Let’s start checking off what we have here!
Highlight this heavily. I cannot stress this enough that respect is so so so important for a relationship and your mental and emotional well-being!

It is not pretty to get your confidence knocked down for what you value as a relationship. Speaking from experience, it takes years to build confidence and be this strong you, don’t let someone come and take it away like that!
Now this! Part of the foundation of a relationship! Trust does wonders honestly, it makes a person more open and giving in a way. Trust yourself, your decisions, your partner, their decisions, and decisions as a team. With trust, comes honesty.

Honesty is what keeps trust alive in a relationship. In general, it makes us humans feel secure in the relationship. And not just that, it also promotes self and life-satisfaction!

Instead, I would like to pose this as a question, why would you ever want to be like someone else, when you can be just YOURSELF? You are so unique, so different, so special. Be proud of who you are and be that amazing person you are!
