9 Good Signs Youâ€™re in the Right Relationship

Number 7 speaks to me:
7.Â There is a healthy blend of freedom and teamwork.
Keep in mind that we canâ€™t force anyone to be with us or love us.Â We shouldnâ€™t beg someone to stay when they want to leave.Â And likewise, we should never feel trapped in a relationship.Â In fact, if either person feels trapped, the relationship doesnâ€™t really exist.Â Because thatâ€™s what relationships are all about: freedom.
Relationships are also built on a solid foundation of teamwork.Â And since relationships are one of the greatest vehicles of personal growth and happiness, the most important trip you will ever take in life is meeting someone else halfway.Â You will achieve far more by working with them, rather than working alone or against them.Â It really is a full circle.Â The strength of a relationship depends on the strength of its two members, and the strength of each member in the long run depends onÂ the quality of the relationship.
And remember, relationships are rarely 50/50 at any given instant in time.Â You canâ€™t always feel 100%, or a full 50% of a relationshipâ€™s whole â€“ life is simply too unpredictable for that.Â So on the days when you can only give 20%, the other person must give 80%, and vice versa.Â Itâ€™s never been about balancing steady in the middle; healthy relationships are about two people who are willing to make adjustments for each other in real time as needed, and give more when the other person canâ€™t help but give a little less.
