A Healthy Relationship

"In a healthy relationship, vulnerability is wonderful. It leads to increased intimacy and closer bonds. When a healthy person realizes that he or she hurt you, they feel remorse and they make amends. It’s safe to be honest. In an abusive system, vulnerability is dangerous. It’s considered a weakness, which acts as an invitation for more mistreatment. Abusive people feel a surge of power when they discover a weakness. They exploit it, using it to gain more power. Crying or complaining confirms that they’ve poked you in the right spot.” ― Christina Enevoldsen.

What would you say are key signs that you're in a healthy relationship? I would say having your own space to do things such as hobbies, I always try and encourage my partner to embrace his interests and go out with his friends!

All the best, Leia

Compared with my previous relationship to now, I realize that I wasn’t in a healthy relationship before like I am now. My ex was very emotionally abusive. Eventually I got fed up with it and ended it. But now I’m in a healthy relationship with my partner that doesn’t put me down when I’m not having a good day or make me feel like a burden.

Well said Leia, a healthy relationship could have different meanings to us. The most important thing is that we are comfortable and happy.
