If you want to have a healthy relationship, then there are certain foundations that you are going to need to have. Without them, it’s not going to be possible to have a healthy, solid relationship that we all end up craving. The problem with this is that there are a lot of people who try to hold on when their foundations are broken and there is no way of fixing them, prolonging the inevitable that you’re going to break up. But what are these foundations that we’re talking about? Let’s take a look.
One of the most important things in any kind of relationship is that there is trust between the people involved. You need to be able to trust the person that you are with to talk to you when they need to, to come to you with problems when they have them, and to speak to you about whatever is on their mind. Seeing as you are not a mindreader, and neither are they, good communication is the only way to ensure trust.
A lot of people think that once trust is broken, it cannot fully be regained. If you are someone who thinks this way, then as soon as the trust is gone you should be out of that relationship. But, some people manage to get past this and build up trust once more, so it all depends on you.
Respect is just as important as trust is when it comes to your relationship. You have got to have respect for the person that you are with or it is never going to work. There are signs that there isn’t any respect in your relationship, and you should not be ignoring these the way that a lot of people do. For example, if your partner lies to you, if they manipulate you, if they blackmail you, if they emotionally abuse you and so much more, then you should take this for what it is.
Love comes in a whole range of shapes and sizes. Love looks different on different people, so just because you’re not receiving love in the way that you would expect it, doesn’t mean that you are not receiving it. It does make sense if you think about it, even though it’s a bit of a mind boggle. As long as you are communicating with your partner, it doesn’t matter what kind of relationship you have or what anyone else thinks of it. For example, if you are in a sugar daddy/sugar baby relationship or you want to be, that’s nobody else’s business. There is nothing to say that there is less love here than in any other kind of relationship, and the same goes for things like open relationships.
Without these things, your relationship is simply not going to work. These are the foundations on which you should be building your relationship, and there is absolutely no way that without these things your relationship is going to thrive. As such, you need to ensure that you have all of these things, or at the very least you are working towards having these things again. Sometimes, you just have to be strong enough to let go when the relationship is not worth it anymore.
