Once immersed in a relationship and when you do not have maturity, it becomes somewhat difficult to know if it is on the right track, and many believe that the simple fact of being “together” is enough, but today we will talk about some notions regarding this, take a look:

Someone once said, “The right person is the one who is always by your side in times of uncertainty.” But will always being there be enough?


How do I know if I’m in a good relationship?

It’s a question that many people ask themselves more often than you might think, but you should counter it with another question, because the answers to it are usually much more specific: What do you think a good relationship should offer the people involved?

And although the answer is obviously subjective, in all loving relationships, there are certain clear indications that things are not going well. For this reason, it would be interesting to review some signs that indicate that a relationship is “healthy”, and also some tips that could help you redirect everything that is wrong with your relationship.

1. No more games.

Sometimes, we tend to transform the relationship into something more difficult than it should be. Difficulties usually arise when conversations turn into text messages, feelings become subliminal, sex becomes a sacrifice, the word “love” loses meaning, trust disappears as honesty fades, insecurity and uncertainty become a lifestyle, jealousy becomes a habit, Being hurt seems like a normal thing to do and running away is the only solution.


It’s time to stop running away, face these issues, fix what’s wrong, communicate, value, forgive, and love those who deserve it. And of course, if you feel that someone is just playing with you, it doesn’t cost you anything to talk about and put an end to this, because if we have something valuable in life, it’s time, to waste it.

2. Are we on the same frequency?

If a woman starts a casual relationship with a man and he doesn’t specify that she’s looking for a serious relationship, casual will probably never become serious. If you give someone the impression of being casual, or whatever, and everything is perfect for you, that’s how it’s supposed to be from now on, it’s like a silent pact. What you want to achieve in the end is what you have to follow in a straight line from the beginning, always being aware of what you want. Don’t beat around the bush. If someone freaks out and runs away, because you took an honest attitude and set boundaries, then this person would not have been beneficial in any way.

3. The line of communication is open, honest, and clear.

You can’t be afraid to talk about certain topics or have “those conversations.” It is better to converse and find out the truth, than to continue not speaking and go nowhere. Say what you have to say. Don’t expect that person you consider important to be able to read your mind, and above all, don’t get involved in emotional games. Don’t tell half-truths and hope that with that there can be trust, after all half-truths are not much better than lies.

Happy couple

Listen without defending and speak without offending, this is the key. Communication is not only an important part of the relationship, it is its main pillar. Relationships often fail to progress due to trust issues, commitment issues, and most of all, communication issues. So be honest and reach out when it comes to something fundamental.

4. Actions constantly reinforce words.

Seeking a relationship does not simply mean telling the other person that you love them, expressing such a thing is nothing more than a ritual validation of a supposed feeling. Do little things every day to show that you care.

In all seriousness, you can say “I’m sorry” a thousand and one times, or say “I love you” a million times, or whatever you want, but if you don’t act to prove that such things are true, they really aren’t. If you can’t prove it, then your words are hollow. It’s that simple. And there is no good relationship that is not simultaneous, i.e., congruent at both ends.

5. Expectations of perfection are strictly forbidden.

Any real relationship just won’t be perfect, but if you’re willing to work to make it better and better, it can be everything you’ve ever dreamed of.

Your best friends and your love are far from perfect, but they are a perfect fit for you. Give them a chance to show it to you. When you stop expecting people to perform according to your expectations, only then can you begin to enjoy and appreciate them for what they are. What you need to keep in mind is that every relationship has its problems, but what makes it perfect in the end is that you don’t want to be anywhere else, even when things get tough.

6. Honesty, vulnerability, and presence are sacred.

Although it may seem risky, the strongest kind of love is the love that makes you most vulnerable. It’s about daring to be honest, daring to be open, and putting yourself out there for the long haul. It’s about being with each other in good times and bad, yes, but it’s really about being there in presence and spirit, just when it’s needed most.

Spend time with the person you love. Allow yourself to experience yourself to the fullest in an authentic way. Break down all the emotional walls you’ve built around yourself and feel all the emotions, good and bad.

7. Personal growth is celebrated and shared.

It’s not about finding someone to get lost in, but about finding someone to find yourself. When you connect with someone special, whether it’s a friend or a sweetheart, that person helps you bring out the best in yourself. In this way, neither really knows the best of themselves, both will grow and become better and better as they spend time together and nurture each other’s growth.

Couple Holding Hands

When we think with our hearts about ourselves and about the person we are with, we often come across the idea of taking things from the other (advice, answers, material gifts…) but we also think about all the ways in which it influenced their joys and sorrows, in the experience of each one in that life together through the good and bad moments. But in the end, that doesn’t matter, it’s just details and consequences of something bigger… What’s really important is the fact that they’re there for each other, growing and learning as one.
