You cannot rely on your partner to always be available, attuned to you, or help you heal. A relationship is a joint effort where both partners contribute to its growth. By building trust and learning to support each other during difficult times, you lay the foundation for a strong bond.
In a healthy relationship, both partners strive to be good for each other. You consider what your partner needs to feel safe, as well as your own needs for safety. You recognize the value they bring to the relationship and what you bring in return. You seek ways to support your partner while also expressing your own desires for support.
When we adopt this perspective, we balance both our partner’s needs and our own. We give equal importance to both, creating a sturdy foundation for a fulfilling relationship.
