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?
