Healthy Relationships

Healthy relationships are the consistencies of our intents and efforts – sustained by our attentiveness and commitment. Healthy relationships are neither easy, nor do they just happen. Compatibility plays it part; yet, it alone can not sustain the health of a relationship.

Healthy relationships are the results of individuals who have chosen to live conscious and responsible lives. We each bring our share of stuff…requiring personal accountability.

We each offer a world of unique differences. In healthy relationships, we learn to respect those differences. In part, it is the regard for those differences that create the needed structure for relational balance – mere tolerance is not enough. Numerous lessons are stored in the uniqueness of our differences.

Healthy relating means that we are committed to change as it encourages personal and spiritual growth. We partner in the creation of healthy relationships, offering both our strengths and weaknesses. In healthy relationships, we’re committed to considering how to consider, without hindering our own development, or that of another.

The rituals of listening, learning, communicating, growing, failing, apologizing and all the other components that stabilize healthy relationships becomes the norm. This and more occurs while we sharpen & maintain our own separate sense of being.

What about you, how do you establish healthy relationships? How do you keep them?

Thank you for taking the time to visit Life Through The Storm. Live wise and live well. ~Storm

  1. You were so right, I learned early on that I don’t know everything, that I should not control everything, and when I am wrong i should humble myself, and that compromise should be a staple in our relationship. I can be strong, but i recognize when I should be weak, if you understand what i mean. I love and love deeply, so i share the same way, i easily forgive, and forget, letting go quickly and it has helped me to blossom not only spiritually within myself but also in my relationship with my wife. I rather do things that help us to grow together than apart. Wonderful message Storm! Blessings!

    1. Thank you for taking the time Wendell – I appreciate your words. Personal growth & development is no easy task…once we recognize the effort & the labor of love that it takes to sustain our own individual well-being – it becomes easier extending no less of the same to those with whom we interact..
