The Importance of Relationships


Relationships are a big part of our lives and bring us a lot of benefits. They boost our self-esteem, make us feel good about ourselves and give meaning to our life. It is important that we work on them.

In a healthy relationship, you and your partner are a team that fights together against the barriers of life, for your goals and dreams and that each of you try to become the best version of yourself. That is what makes a real relationship different from all the rest. In a real relationship, you don’t hold back, and you respect that your partner has different interests, hobbies and perspectives from you and are also willing to discuss these things.

The support that a loving and supportive partner provides can be invaluable in the face of challenges. They are there to cheer you on as you pursue your goals and dreams, but they also allow you to maintain your independence and sense of identity. It’s a feeling that is very hard to describe and one that many people would wish for in their life.

They are a companion to you through thick and thin, they are a safe place that shelters you from the world’s harshness and comforts you when you are sick. They can share your fears, worries and anxieties and you can trust them to listen to your problems and help in a practical way. A person that can understand you when no one else does is a true gift and a privilege.

You can learn a lot about yourself and your behavior from the people that you are close to. It’s easy to let your bad habits show up around those you love, but if the person you are in a relationship with cares about you they will be more than happy to correct these things and encourage you to do better.

Being in a relationship also gives you a chance to practice a positive relationship model for the rest of your family. It can also be an opportunity to build a network of supportive and caring individuals in your community, which is a valuable asset for any person in today’s world.

There are a lot of reasons to be in a relationship, but it is important to remember that the primary reason for a relationship should always be love. If you are not in love, you are only in a relationship for the sake of survival and it is not worth the effort. Eventually your kids will grow up, your obnoxious brother-in-law will join a monastery and you will wake up in the future with a stranger next to you – don’t you want to be with someone that makes you smile when you are down, someone who understands you when you can’t even understand yourself and that you can’t wait to get home to?
