There is no such thing as an ideal relationship. When it comes to love, we can’t chalk a set of perfect rules. We all make our own rules as we get to know our partner on a deeper level. There are a lot of relationship habits that are widely perceived as “toxic”, but if you really think twice, you would realize that they are actually healthy for couples. Stop complaining about these healthy relationship habits that might look toxic at first.
- Not truly understanding each other
We all come in layers and it is only with time we get to know each other. There is nothing wrong with not knowing everything about your partner. The good part is all about getting to know something new about them with every passing day.
- Making separate plans
SourceYou should have some conflicts while making plans with your partner. That is how you would pull each other out of comfort zone and try something new.
- Not resolving everything
SourceWhen it comes to any relationship, you have to pick your battles. You can’t blindly have a fight regarding the most irrelevant of issues. There are a few things that are not meant to be resolved, but only forgotten.
- Accepting that love can’t conquer everything
SourceThis is how you take a pragmatic decision while being in love. You should know your own worth and not lose yourself in the process of loving someone else. There would be times when you’ll realize that love is not enough, and it is absolutely fine!
- Able to hurt each other
SourceWhile hurting each other constantly is toxic, the two of you should have occasional fights. This is how you would express your opinions and might hurt each other in the process. Though, every time you hurt your partner, you would realize how much you love them!
- Feeling attracted to other people/things
SourcePeople assume that after being in a relationship one can’t be attracted to other people, or even things. Getting attracted to someone is the most natural thing. Though, one should not commit adultery, cross the line, or have an emotional affair with someone else while doing so.
- Not being together all the time
SourceDon’t be one of those inseparable couples that no one likes to hangout with. Have your own group of friends and go out separately every once in a while.
- Focusing on your pattern’s flaws
SourceLet’s be honest, we all have flaws. Instead of simply celebrating each other’s imperfections, why not make an effort and correct it. Why not be better with the help of your significant other?
- Knowing when to end it
SourceNo one likes to be in a relationship with a thought of ending it one day. Though there are times when you need to know how much is too much. If you are losing yourself in the process or is simply not happy with your partner, then there is no reason to drag a toxic relationship your whole life.
Loving someone takes a lot of effort. You literally have to walk an extra mile to make it work. It is definitely not how it looks like in rom-com movies or those classic novels. There is nothing wrong with setting your own path and making your own decisions. After all, there are all kinds of love and only you can decide what’s right for you.
