Hi, allow me to share to you what I've think are the positive effects of being in a truly healthy relationship, of really being in love. Let's call theme the Seven E's.
The Seven E's
1. Energy . . . Truly being in love will energize you physically, mentally, and emotionally.2. Enthusiasm . . . A healthy relationship creates a healthy and enthusiastic attitude toward life.3. Excitement and optimism for the future . . . When you are happy and in love today, you look forward to tomorrow with excitement.4. Esteem and self-confidence . . . A good relationship will support you in feeling high self-esteem.5. Emotional Generosity . . . When you feel loved, it is easy to share that fullness of heart with those around you, and to become very loving and giving.6. Ease in being oneself . . . When a relationship is supportive, you will find it easy to be yourself around your partner, your friends, and in all circumstances.7. Emotional Relaxation . . . When you feel well loved, your whole being relaxes, filling you with a deep sense of peace of heart and mind.
Base on my experience, the Seven E's will develope overtime in a truly healthy and growing relationship. Yet love thrives only under certain conditions. I've learned that, in order to stay in love, you must consciously create those conditions necessary for love to grow. Then you will naturally behave in ways to stay in love.
Now tell me, are you in love?
