Everything that you are is enough. However, even the brightest of souls face their share of gloomy days. To tackle these days, we humans have a wonderful ability to share, communicate and understand others.
All we need on gloomy days is a person to rely on. A person whom we can confide in. A person who can help us cope with our darkest whims. Someone with whom we can be our truest selves. This individual could be anyone from our parents to a dearest friend or life partner. Speaking of life partners, they have a lot to do with our well-being, physically, mentally, and spiritually.
When we choose someone as our life partner we give them access to our lives. It is our responsibility to not hand over our lives to any detrimental person. It is undeniably true that a life partner could positively influence your mental health.
How, you ask? Read on!
In form of a life partner, you also get a trusted ally at your side. Every human is fighting some sort of individual battle. Having a life partner helps you fight those battles without draining too much of yourself.
Sometimes, all one need is someone to hear them out. Your trusted ally would be your ardent listener and the best supporter. Even when they won't be able to do much to help you out, their constant source of inspiration would help you face tough situations. They are your most trusted allies, given that your relationship isn't toxic.
Though we are all capable of leading our lives in an individual manner proficiently. We all need support, a confidant, and a companion to lean on at times. During dark days, you need a person who trusts you more than you do.
With a good life partner by your side, you would never be alone fighting the demons in the darkest corners of your mind. In fact, they would help you be the most important and lovable person in your life, regardless of what may come.
Disclaimer! We don’t mean solidarity is inessential.
While solidarity is one of the most beautiful things in the world, it can also take over us at times filling our minds with negativity, insecurity and overthinking. A good life partner would be by your side and make you remould the negative energy that arises from being too aloof.
A good partner would identify the signs of your trauma and would not let you sip in further. The best relationships have the capability to lift you up and raise your spirits.
It is great to be self-sufficient but that doesn't mean sailing on a boat alone. Having a good partner by your side means you would never truly be aloof. They would look out for you both on your best and worst days. That in itself would save you from sinking deep into melancholy.
This might seem like an overstatement but trust us it is not. A good life partner knows you well inside and out. They won't let you face pressing loneliness. They would stand by your side with their unwavering support even when everyone would fail you. We, humans, are made of love and there is nothing that a healthy dosage of love cannot solve.
The signs of mental illness are subtle at the start and glaringly evident at later stages before it finally takes the form of something inconceivable. While a good life partner positively influences your mental health, a toxic marriage can take you to the depths of mental trauma and suffering. Be mindful of this while choosing someone as a companion for the rest of your life.
With all that said, we would also like to remind you that it is very much your responsibility as your partner’s to look after your mental health while also being a good life partner to them. Always remember, “A happy marriage is the one that’s mutual.”
Till next time,
Have a happy married life!
