The Basics of Healthy Relationships.

Nothing can bring more joy to life than beautifully fulfilling relationships.

The depth of meaning, understanding and appreciation that these kinds of relationships bring is almost unfathomable.

And, of course, as many people find out, nothing can bring so much pain as a broken relationship with someone dear to you.

Yes, relationships make the world go ’round’. For better or for worse. But the exciting thing is that we can do much to increase our chances of having terrific relationships–relationships that are fulfilling and exciting, rich with meaning, joy and love.


There are basics that govern most human relationships and these basics are what I want to cover below.

So, here is my list of the eight essentials that I believe make up the basics of healthy relationships.

1. Love. Now, this all depends on your definition of love.

Most people think that love is a feeling, but I would strongly debate that point. Actually, the concept of “like” is really about feelings.

When you say you like someone, you are talking about how you feel. But when you say that you love someone, you are not necessarily talking about how you feel about them.

Love is much deeper than a feeling. Love is a commitment we make to people to always treat that person right and honorably. Yes, for those we become especially close to, we will have feelings of love, but I believe it is time for us to re-examine what we mean by love.

We must expand our definition of what love means by including the commitment aspect of love. For healthy relationships, we must love everyone.

We may not like them based on how we feel about them, but we should love them based on our definition of love above which in turn determines how we should act towards them, that is, treat them right and honorably.

2. Serving Heart. My good friend Zig Ziglar says frequently that “you can have everything you want in life if you help enough other people get what they want out of life.”

The concept he is talking about is having a heart and life that is focused on serving other people. The Bible puts it this way: consider others’ interests as more important than your own. This is also fundamental to healthy relationships.

3. Honest Communication. In any good relationship you will find open and honest communication.

Communication is so important because it is the vehicle that allows us to verbalize what is inside us and enables it to connect with another person.

Isn’t communication amazing? One person is feeling one thing and through communication, another person can find that out and feel it too–amazing. And this is a vital goal in good relationships–to communicate, to tell each other what we are thinking and what we are feeling.

It enables us to make a connection. Sometimes we are the one speaking and other times we are listening.

Either way, the central tenet is communication for the sake of building the relationship and making it stronger.

And here’s what’s exciting, if we just communicate, we can get by. But if we communicated skillfully, we can work miracles!

Let’s begin to focus on improving our relationships in these areas and see what miracles occur!

HA68 Basics of Healthy Relationships by Jim Rohn
I’ve come to the realization that everything we do is based on relationships. Relationships make the world go around.

We buy out of relationships, wars are fought over broken relationships, we have children because of relationships – every single thing that takes place on this planet is an extension of and is driven by relationships.

Our relationships can allow us to experience the peaks of ecstasy and the low valleys of agony. They have the greatest potential to give us joy and cause us to grow and become more if we so choose.
