Strong, healthy adult relationships are defined by mutual respect, trust, and honesty. In addition, they also support you and have your back when needed. If you work to build strong adult relationships, they’ll make your life so much better in all the following ways. 

You’ll Experience Less Stress

When you have a person, you can call on to vent your life is automatically much better. This is especially true if your relationship is open enough that your friend won’t let you wallow in your anger for long. Instead, they’ll help pull out of the stress and focus on the good in your life. 

You’ll Live Longer 

Studies show that people who have strong adult relationships live longer lives than those who are isolated. People need to be connected to other people. That doesn’t mean you have to be friends with everyone, but you can focus on building the relationships you choose into strong ones. 

You’ll Get Well Faster

Because you have friends and family that care about you, your immune system will fight off colds and illness faster. Plus, you can likely get help from those strong adult relationships when you need it too. If you have a couple people in your life that you can call on you can avoid being burned out.

You Will Engage in Healthier Behaviors

Your good friends and family members that you have solid relationships with will not let you do things that are unhealthy regularly. Sure, you may enjoy a nice evening out with drinks, ribs, and cake but you will also get each other to the gym to combat the damage. Likewise, your good friends will not lie to you about your own behavior even toward your spouse if it’s wrong. 

You’ll Feel a Greater Sense of Purpose 

When you are connected to society, you will feel a more profound sense of purpose in your life. You will feel relevant to the lives of those that you are close to. That will help prevent loneliness and other problems later. Even an introvert can benefit from strong relationships with others. 

Forging healthy relationships as an adult can be harder than it is for younger people who aren’t yet tied down with jobs and responsibilities. However, if you make it a priority to focus on a handful of adult relationships that make you feel good, you will experience all these benefits and more.

Petra Monaco is a published author, coach, mom and breaks the status quo for fun. As a foster kid, she knows the challenges and excuses people make as she rewrote her own story and then worked her way through to become a Master's level therapist. However, after watching her son fight for his life due to a rare genetic disorder and three liver transplants, she now coaches creatives and multi-passionates to stop waiting for “one day” and the “perfect moments’. Petra helps you dive deeply into the heart of things in order to discover your next steps, inspires you to set up your own personal framework so you can break free from fear, doubt, and overwhelm so you can start creating the life you want now. Petra uses her personal story to inspire and motivate people into doing the work they need to do to create change because she believes that your excuses are just avoidance. You can have the cake and eat it too if you're willing to show up for it!
