Relationships have been known to cause the greatest joy and also the greatest pain. A break-ups can leave you confused, lonely and devastated – questioning if it was truly love, a valuable learning experience or just a waste of time. Relationships are hard work – requiring constant compromise, understanding and patience. Healthy relationships are constantly emotional and they are not cold either. There should be a balance in the middle. It’s hard work and well worth it when you’re with the right person. There’s nothing lonelier than a one-way relationship and nothing more fulfilling than a healthy relationship between two people who love, care and respect one another. So how do you know if you’re in a healthy relationship? Well, healthy relationships are equal partnerships where decision-making and responsibility is shared. There should be freedom and equality regarding money, work and education. You should feel secure with one another – enough to share your fears and insecurities with one another. Both should be sensitive to the other’s needs and wants. You should respect each other’s space. Value each other’s opinions and raise each other’s level of self-esteem. Manipulation, control and fear have no place in a healthy relationship. Mutual understanding, acceptance and trust should dominate. However, if it does not work out this way – it can be frustrating, confusing and painful. Dr. Cristiano can help you find your answers and facilitate your decision-making.
