What makes a healthy/non-healthy relationship?

A healthy relationship doesn’t just involve one person, it involves two people who are willing to work on things together.  In a healthy relationship, you have to be willing to compromise on certain things and accept the person for who they are.  To receive a little you have to give a little.  A healthy relationship also involves listening to one another.  There is a huge difference between hearing and listening.  If you listen to someone, you are taking what they say into consideration and you are able to communicate with them on what they said.  Hearing someone is just taking what they say in one ear and out the other.  If you really want to be heard, then you need to give your undivided attention to the other person.  I promise it will pay off.  It comes down to respect and how much you have for that one other person.  Healthy relationships have nothing but respect between the two people and it’s what can make a relationship last.

What makes an unhealthy relationship?  Well pretty much everything that’s the opposite of what I said above.  One thing that can cause a relationship to go down the toilet is not having any sort of trust between you and your partner.  Without trust, a relationship is bound to fail.  Another thing is not giving your attention to your partner.  You have to put forth an effort to make something work.  If you don’t, then they won’t either.  Communication is a huge key in any relationship.  Without communication, you and your partner will eventually blow up at each other because you’ve been keeping things bottled up inside of you.  You guys won’t know what to do if that happens because you haven’t been talking to each other to try and find the problem and then a solution.  Without any of these tips, a relationship will not last, or even start.
