A healthy relationship is a key to happiness

By Jonathan Orihuela ’20

Being in a healthy relationship is something one should experience at some point because it brings nothing but joy in one’s life. A relationship should be something a person can come to if they are having a bad day or need someone to talk to.

Being in a healthy relationship will also consist of support between the two individuals because that is needed in order to keep going. 

Relationships bring joy to a person’s life

Being in a relationship could be the best thing in life, especially, if both people have a mutual love for one another. The happiness that one gets to experience in a relationship is way different than a friendship or a bond one has with a sibling. One becomes genuinely attached to that person, that if you are ever separated from them, you get this feeling of wanting to be with them.

Moreover, when you and your significant other are having an argument and both fight to find a solution to be “good” in the end, it could bring happiness to both. I say this because if both of you are willing to find a way to be happy even when you are mad, that can be the best filling ever.

Another thing that can bring joy in a relationship is setting goals. When both of you sit down and start talking about wanting this and that, it makes you feel joy because you are thinking positively about making it together to the future no matter what comes along the way. 

Having someone to talk to

Being in a healthy relationship is someone only to help you, not hurt. For example, if you are having a bad day and have no one to talk to, you know that you will always have someone to come to, your significant other. You will always be able to talk to your partner about anything without any type of judgment being made.

Disagreements are a natural part of having a healthy relationship, but you need to compromise when you dislike something. When having a bad day, the number one person who you should go to is your partner because they should be updated on how your mental and emotional state is going. 

Supportiveness Matters

A healthy relationship will most certainly consist of having support between both persons. However, being supportive is a commitment, which is not bad because you are doing it for the sake of being with the person you love. You can easily help somebody and call them your friend, but words are cheap. You need to show a constant supporting system to show that you really care for that person’s well-being.

A way to show that you support your partner is by making time for them. This shows that you’re putting things aside to talk to them about whatever they might need or want. Not only that but, you being your partner’s cheerleader is one of the best ways to support someone. The occasion in which you’re in doesn’t matter. What matters is that you are there to support your partner in any way possible to see a smile in their face or just to make them feel like they are important.
