What does a healthy relationship look like?

A healthy relationship has these characteristics:

  1. You feel honored.
  2. You feel more alive.
  3. There is nurturing and support for you to become more of who you are.
  4. There is strength coming from your partner allowing you to explore ways to expand into new territories.
  5. There is trust.
  6. There is equality and mutual expression of care.
  7. The goals are the same, even though the ways of expressing them may be different.
  8. Each brings healing into the other through depth and security.
  9. The relationship causes you to create a new dynamic based on the future rather than on what has been known in the past.
  10. There seems to be a knowing about the other person that goes beyond this time and space, as if you had known each other before.
  11. Your partner is more than you would have known to ask for.
  12. You wonder how you ever got this lucky.
