HelpGuide: Relationships
A relationship is an investment that will build as you continue to devote your time and effort. The more you put in, the more you’ll get back. As well as commitment and a willingness to adapt and change throughout life, healthy relationships require skills in communication and emotional awareness. Thankfully, these skills can be easily learned. They can even help to repair many relationships.

HelpGuide: Conflict Resolution
Conflict is a normal part of healthy relationships. After all, two people can’t be expected to agree on everything at all times. Learning how to deal with conflict – rather than avoiding it – is crucial. When conflict is mismanaged, it harms the relationship, but when handled in a respectful, positive way, conflict provides an opportunity for growth, ultimately strengthening the bond between two people.
