What is a Relationship

A relationship is a connection you share with another person. The connection can be blood related or chosen or even forced as in the case of co-workers. A relationship is a two way interaction. Both parties are responsible for their actions and behaviour.

Relationships mean different things to each person. Some of the most vital elements involved in a relationship include values such as trust, friendship and familiarity.

Types of Relationships:

There are many types of relationships, of them the most common ones are:

  1. Romantic (Couple)
  2. Family
  3. Co workers
  4. Friendships / Platonic

Your relationships affect your mood and contentment levels. When there is disharmony in relationships it affects your way of thinking, thus affecting your emotions and actions. How you interact with others is very important as it has a deep impact on your emotional state. A positive interaction has a good effect on your overall state of self. It brings about satisfaction, contentment and even happiness.

Good relationships all share a varying degree of love in them. Often in bad relationships, people do not know how to improve the relationship and feel trapped. Neither are they able to give the relationship up for whatever personal reasons. This negative feeling affects their soul, causing emotional instability.

Judgmental people often remark that they would never tolerate what they see on other people’s relationship. Yet these same people may be tolerating to an extent something worse. For example when they see abuse in someone else they can identify it, but they may tolerate control issues within their own relationship that those other people would not tolerate.

In intimate relationships, your contribution to how a relationship shapes out is important. If you do not like the pattern, take steps to alter your behaviour towards the person. Knowing yourself on a deeper level will help you to have a better relationship with other people.

If your gut feeling is not to give up – then don’t. Successful relationships would never have been accomplished had the people involved given up. In fact, great relationships are achieved through hard work and dedication. This rule can be applied to any relationship not just in the case of couples.
