The month of February brings up visions of valentine hearts, flowers, and sweets. Valentine’s Day creates the opportunity to focus on our loved ones and acknowledge their importance. When we acknowledge someone’s importance by nurturing the relationship we are cultivating a healthy relationship that will be able to weather the storms of life. Nurturing a relationship can take many forms. The more nurturing skills we have in our repertoire of behaviors, the healthier our relationships will be.
In order to embrace a conscious proactive nurturing process, one must start by taking a personal inventory of one’s personal beliefs. These beliefs are the underlining forces that create our value system which in turn build healthy or unhealthy relationships.
Some examples of healthy beliefs are as follows:
Since we are well aware that the storms of life will come, we need to build a strong Love foundation in our relationships. We can consciously create and practice good habits that nurture the relationship.
Some examples of good love habits are:
Healthy Relationships don’t just happen, they must be protected and nourished just as you would a precious red rose with sunlight, water, plant food, pruning etc.
Creating time and commitment must be a part of a healthy relationship in order to develop strong pillars of respect, trust and support, honesty and accountability, shared responsibilities, and healthy negotiations and fairness.
