Five Core Practices of Healthy and Strong Relationships

  1. Respect: You and the other party are equal in your perception, you are not inferior nor superior, but stand as equals with a healthy respect for one another. This equality is referring to acknowledged potential as human beings. There is often a first among equals but this is entirely different that a superior-inferior relationship.

  2. Truthfulness/Honesty: Total fearless honesty eliminates the growing of falseness in your relationship so you can always fix problems simply by approaching the problem. It removes complication and falseness which make any problem impossible to fix. A person can speak in a way that is not deliberately dishonest while still failing to be accurate and truthful about what they are thinking and feeling. To be truthful is a higher standard than mere honesty as it means you have sufficient external and internal awareness to be at a high standard of accuracy in what you relate to the other party in the relationship. “The fate of a liar is not that no one will believe them, but that they can believe no one else.”

  3. Acceptance: You must decide to accept the other party in full, both good and bad aspects, and you decide to be unconditional so you can honestly express yourself and never hide out of Fear. You allow the other person to be free without your control but they must still know who you are and where you stand so they know how you will respond to what they do.

  4. Appreciation: Never take the other for granted. Appreciate all the things they do in your relationship and never forget to be grateful for everything. Appreciation is a deliberate action you take that results in feeling grateful. Trying to just feel grateful is defeating, feeling gratitude is the natural result of consistently practicing appreciation in your thoughts, words and actions.

  5. Dedication/Devotion: Promise yourself to the other, commit to watch over them, to support and work with them. Make them a top priority and choose to be there for them always. This is about demonstrated loyalty by consistently prioritizing the relationship.
