Relationships – What Are They?


Relationships are any kind of association or connection between people, whether intimate or platonic. Often, the term relationship is used to refer to a romantic and/or sexual connection that involves some level of ongoing commitment and feelings of romance or love. Whether these feelings are reciprocal or not, many people feel very attached to the ones they care about and find themselves in deep emotional turmoil when their relationships end.

A true relationship is built on healthy communication, trust, intimacy, companionship, and mutual understanding. It is an ongoing process of growing together, learning new things about each other and yourself and helping each other to become the best versions of yourselves. When someone makes you smile when you feel like crying, understands you in a way no one else can, inspires and encourages you to be a better version of yourself, then they are a true partner.

However, despite the deep emotional attachments of a relationship, it is important to remember that people are different. It is not possible for two people to have the same values, beliefs, habits or personality and that some differences may be irreconcilable. This can cause pain and disappointment, but it is always good to try and find ways to compromise and come up with solutions that are realistic. It is also a good idea to have other friends and relationships outside of your partner, as being isolated can be unhealthy. People who have strong social support have healthier hearts and live longer than those who do not.
