A Healthy Relationship
A healthy relationship in my opinion is a friendship or relationship that both people feel safe in, trusted, loyal and all round happy and comfortable. A healthy relationship can be many things, it can be with a close friend, a boyfriend or girlfriend, a family member or even a teacher. Each relationship with be healthy in it’s own way.
A relationship with a special friend, boyfriend or girlfriend should be very strong as you choose to be apart of their life and their’s apart of yours. Family relationships can be tricky as don’t choose or ask to be apart of a particular family, you just have to make it work. You have to willing and ready to make sacrifices and work through differences when you are in a relationship as you might have disagreements and certain others could happen like having children can really test first time parents. Last of all I will list a few vital things you need for a healthy relationship.
