Being in a relationship should send shocks through your body. It should be healthy, nourishing, mutually beneficial. It should set a fire in your soul, make you want to do better, make you want to see the other person succeed no matter the cost. Being in a relationship shouldn’t be draining, shouldn’t make you feel any less of yourself or of your worth. Being in a relationship should be a constant positive, even through your struggles. You shouldn’t have to fight for attention, you shouldn’t have to go out of your way to make your significant other care. A toxic relationship can easily be confused for a healthy relationship, so constantly remind yourself of your worth and stick to it.
A healthy relationship is one where two independent people just make a deal that they will help make the other person be the best version of themselves.
