It is no secret that your relationship has a direct effect on your emotional health, your disposition to life, your thought patterns, your behaviour and as has been recently discovered your future health. Check every couple that has been together for over forty years. You will often find them to be people who are so comfortable with each other and have attained a level of intimacy that transcends just a physical act. That is why it is extremely important to have a healthy relationship.
If you want to live a long, healthy life then you should be enjoying and not enduring the relationship you are in today. A bad relationship drains you emotionally and may drive you into anxiety or bitterness which have been fingered as remote causes of certain terminal illnesses.
Evaluate your relationship today. It is normal to have disagreements with your spouse or partner but where the disagreements are more regular than the lovey-dovey days then you are enduring and not enjoying your relationship. That means that you may just be setting yourself up for future health problems.
What to do….
Be Intentional about your happiness
No man or woman holds the key to your happiness. Your life is what you make of it. Find the things that bring you joy and fulfilment and do them. Set your mind at peace and hold no grudges.
