Common Mistakes In Healthy Relationship
Change Is Not Meant To Be
It is impractical to expect a relationship to tread at the same pace throughout life. Change in living is inevitable and its effects on your relationship can be obligatory. Since the change seems inevitable, considering it an opportunity to explore your bonding can be more benefiting than preparing ground work for arguments.
More than often, the change has something good in store for both of you. Much depends on you how skillfully you can transform the occasion into an opportunity.
The Perfectionist: Me Vs. We
Relationships rely on dedication and understanding. There is hardly any room for competition here. If you are arguing to win a conflict, expect something upsetting in the course to follow than mere exchange of harsh words.
Competition can be unhealthy in a relationship. Both of you share the same platform to nurture your relationship; and this may not be the right place to display your individual merits. Competition between partners can mean trouble in the relationship and a bad example for children. Nobody in the world can be perfect; it is a matter of accepting your limitations. A healthy relationship lets you know and mend your weaknesses but should not charge you for them.
Listening But Not Agreeing
Differences of opinions, which can be obvious is relationships, should set benchmarks for achieving new heights. Disagreement is not the end of the world.
Not accepting differences can be unhealthy for relationships. Individuals have their own opinions and that is what makes each one different from the other. Individual differences may hold true but they take a secondary position when it comes to influencing someone else’s life.
Couples, who view conflict as a threat to relationship, may want to avoid it at all costs. The unattended or accumulated conflicts can revert with increased thrust to damage the relationship beyond repair. Healthy couples may fight, but they fight with responsibility. Fighting fair is more important than not fighting at all. Admit when you are wrong and seek compromise.

Expression Is Unimportant
Your wants and needs can be different from your partner’s. It can be easily assumed that your partner knows what you want (or need); but this is often not the case. It can create stress in relationships and slowly damage their foundations.
A direct expression of needs and wishes is important. Your needs differing from your partner’s make the expression all the more important.
Silence May Speak All
Sometimes, silence may serve the purpose of saying all you want to convey to someone. However, even if you are an expert at depicting your ‘silence’ skills, your partner may not be confident enough to interpret it the right way.
Silence can be often be a wrong expression of your emotions. Instead, you should adopt the more comprehensible expression of emotions – the words.
