By KOKO TV

Most people when asked, will say that having a healthy and happy relationship is one of the things they believe will make them feel fulfilled. The desire to have a happy, healthy and loving relationship is one shared my most people around the world but many do not know how to go about achieving it. There are traits that all healthy relationships do share and knowing this traits will go a long way towards helping you set goals for your relationship and work towards reaching them. Here are our five top traits of healthy relationships
Both Partners Are Responsible For Their Own Happiness: Many people unfortunately fall into the bad habit of believing and expecting that our partner is meant to be our source of all happiness, love and fulfilment in our lives. However, in a truly vibrant and healthy relationship, neither partner expects the other to be the source of all their happiness in life. Both people know and understand that they themselves are responsible for their own happiness and well-being. They each know that they are there to support and help one another, but they both know that they are ultimately responsible for themselves.
Conflicts Are Dealt With And Dropped: In a heathy relationship, conflicts aren’t a deal breaker. Just because a conflict happens, it doesn’t signal that it’s time to just check out and move on to something else. Rather, the conflict is seen as an opportunity to learn and grow. Both sides openly share their feelings and views honestly and with respect.
Feelings Are Shared Honestly And Openly: Both people share their genuine feelings with one another freely. Both partners respect and accept the other’s feelings. Expressing one another’s true feelings aren’t repressed because both partners know that by not sharing them and that by not accepting the other person’s feelings it will cause conflicts later on.
The Relationship Comes Before Both Parties Involved: In a healthy relationship, both partners are able and willing to consider their partner when making decisions. They don’t just go off and plan a trip for themselves without discussing it with the other person. They make room in their lives for the other person and are willing to work together as a unit.
Both Parties Are In The Relationship Because They Want To: For some of us, we can find ourselves staying in a relationship because we want some kind of security. That can be emotional, physical, financial, or whatever. In a truly healthy relationship both people want to be together because they genuinely want to be together for the sake of living a life with the other person. Security isn’t a primary motivation to be in the relationship, as the motivation of genuine love runs so much deeper than the security that can be gained on a physical level.
