The Best Way to Know That You’re in a Healthy Relationship

I can’t stress enough how important and valuable it is to be a whole person and to truly know yourself before getting into a relationship. When you really know yourself, you tend to know your likes, your dislikes, what works for you, and what doesn’t in a relationship. As well, when you know yourself really well, you’ll know what truly inspires you. Nothing feels as good as when you’re in a healthy relationship and your partner inspires you on a daily basis. Each and every one of us gets inspired in different ways. And because we all get inspired from different things, the side effects and things that happen because of that inspiration differs from person to person.


One really great thing that happens when we feel inspired is that we tend to see the positive side effects through our own actions and in regards to how we feel on a daily basis. As well, whether we’re in a healthy and happy relationship and even when we’re happily single and feel mentally and emotionally in a healthy state of mind, we’ll not only able to function on a driven and motivated level, but we’ll tend to feel happy while doing so.


The ultimate goal in life is happiness, and that’s why we should surround ourselves with positive and enlightened people that make us feel good about ourselves. Having said that, we should also avoid toxic people at all costs. It’s imperative to surround yourselves with people that have your best interest at heart, and with those that want you to ultimately succeed in life. Therefore, it’s imperative to stay far away from negative and toxic people whenever you can. 


For me personally, when I’m in a healthy relationship, so many different and wonderful things happen to me. For example, my nails start to grow longer and stronger, and that’s likely because I keep them out of my mouth and stop biting them from my nervousness and anxiety. And I’m usually much calmer when I’m in a healthy, happy, normal, and stable relationship. Having nice nails and feeling calmer are two really great side effects of when I’m feeling at my best. Obviously, these are just two minor examples of what happens to me personally when I feel inspired from being happy in a relationship. 


Another thing that might happen to me is that I’ll start to smile more. And that smile alone will affect everyone around me, because after all, smiling is contagious in a very beautiful and positive way. Another thing that happens to me when I feel inspired by my love, is that I’ll start writing many more articles. And I think that the reason that I’m able to write more when I’m in a healthy relationship when it’s normal and stable, is likely because of its aspect of balance. When I’m in a stable and happy relationship, I tend to know that, and feel secure about my relationship to the point where I’m able to focus on other aspects of my life as well. That way, my life maintains its sense of balance.


Balance is imperative in order to feel good about your life, and where you’re at in the moment. People that tend to be balanced usually make everything that’s important to them a priority. I’m sure that many others might have some similar side effects when they feel inspired, so I’m just sharing those couple of examples. But despite the ways in which you feel inspired and motivated, you should easily be able to tell one big side effect of a healthy and happy relationship, which is simply the feeling of motivation.


Perhaps only you may tend to notice when you feel motivated and inspired, but others may tend to see that you’re feeling more inspired, motivated, or somewhat overly enthusiastic as well. And maybe it’s simply because of that big smile full of pearly whites that keeps beaming out from your face, out of pure joy and zen—as a result of your relationship. When someone is in a healthy state of mind, as well as feeling happy with certain aspects of their life, they’ll be more apt to focus better, and be present more in each moment, and working harder when it comes to doing other things and striving towards their other goals and priorities.


Having said all of the above, you know when you’re in a bad or toxic relationship, because the side effects not only won’t bring you inspiration, but you could end up feeling lazy, tired, deflated, drained, and unmotivated to do nearly anything, let alone priorities that you’ll have or whatever obligations that you know need to get done. This is why it’s so imperative to be in touch with your feelings and know yourself well, because then you’ll be able to recognize when someone or something is good for you, and you’ll be able to tell much easier when you’ve been inspired by someone or something good.

  1. I totally agree. Learn to love yourself before you try and let anyone else love you. Figure out who you are alone before getting into a relationship.

    Happiness is the ultimate goal in life. I love this.
