Are Your Relationships Worth Keeping? Here’s How to Tell!

Relationships Worth Keeping

We meet many different people throughout our lives and each of them offers us a myriad of relationships and experiences. We will learn from them all—some bringing great joy and positive growth, others sorrow and difficulty. While we do not have control over the scores of people who cross our life’s path, we do have a choice about how we react to them and how we allow them to affect us. We have a choice about how much we let them into our lives and whether or not we give them any control over us. When evaluating the relationships in your life—whether it be family, friends, co-workers, or significant others—be mindful of those relationships that lift you up, and those which, sadly, drag you down. Here are four relationships worth keeping!

The “Balanced Give and Take” Relationship

The balance of give and take in a relationship is essential to its success or failure. If the giver feels depleted or used, the relationship degrades, resentments build, self-esteem is eroded and depression can sink in. The taker cannot fully respect the giver either, even though he or she will continue to take advantage of their partner. In a healthy relationship, both people give and take, enjoying giving to the other and being able to receive in return. If you have a relationship that is seriously skewed in one direction, realize that this is a relationship that is probably not worth keeping.

The “Easy Compromise” Relationship

Every relationship requires compromise, which must be done with a sense of grace and without resentment. If you find yourselves arguing all the time, with one person unhappy and sulking after a compromise is made, each day with that person will feel more like an battle than a relationship. When both people realize that they enjoy having the other person in their lives more than the compromises they are making, a healthy and happy bond has occurred. You want to keep those relationships where the compromises seem insignificant compared to what each individual brings to the other’s life.

The “Challenge You to Grow” Relationship

Certain relationships will challenge you—your patience, your fears, your doubts and your comfort zone. Realize that defeating these challenges makes you stronger and helps you grow. If the person in your life sees that you are holding yourself back, and they challenge you to defeat your short-comings, that is a relationship to hang onto!

The “Bring Out the Best in You” Relationship

While some people make us feel less than, there will be other people in our lives who, just by being who they are, will bring out the best in us. These are the people who see your strengths and potential while accepting and forgiving your imperfections. These relationships challenge you to be the better person, and support you in your journey towards becoming that person.

    Should i hang on or let it go? We’re both separated from our respective spouses. We’ve been seeing each other at least once a month but we constantly communicate through sms. We’ve been on for more than 3 months now. He’s a nice guy, quiet, reserved, educated, refined and open minded. I’ve learned to love him but I don’t know if he loves me back or if he feels the same way as I do. I’m not sure but i think our relationship falls under either the “challenge you to grow” or “bring out the best in you” relationship.
    Please advise.

    Great article, Alina! Relationships of any sort should not only fulfill us emotionally, but should be life affirming and invigorating.

    Any relationship that drains us or makes us feel “less” needs a serious overhaul and, if that is not possible or does not work, left behind sooner rather than later so we can make room for something better.

    Brightest blessings,
