Today, family psychologists are in great demand. It became clear that a seemingly prosperous family hides problems and conflicts.
More and more couples are trying to solve this problem.
Psychologists have such a thing as a functional family. This is the family in which everyone has learned to adapt to each other. Each member of the family is comfortable and well.
If there is a plus, there is a minus. Dysfunctional families are characterized by feigned well-being, they create the illusion for themselves and others that the family is happy. In fact, such a unit of society can disintegrate at any moment.
Today we will talk about the signs of a functional healthy family.
1. Your problem is my problem.
Any conflict is resolved on both sides. That is, the outcome of the problem should suit both. It is important to be able to freely express your opinion, even if it contradicts the opinion of a partner.
Ease in communication with each other will eliminate the moment of rivalry. In a healthy family, both spouses are on the same side of the barricades.
2. The desire to save the marriage.
Couples who have been together for a long time know how to get through moments of crisis. They understand the importance of living together, appreciate that they have each other. Each problem, solved mutually, strengthens bonds and feelings, gives confidence that together everything is on the shoulder.
The main thing is not to give up at the first quarrel and not to go to different corners, but to find strength and resolve the issue.
3. Patience and work.
The ability to adapt to the interests of a partner when necessary, at some point to sacrifice one’s interests for the sake of the family, is the key to a long and happy life together.
In such a family, they don’t shout, they don’t make decisions in haste. Diplomatic, calm, thoughtful dialogue is the hallmark of a functional family.
4. Unity of thoughts.
When a couple is just starting to live together, they are faced with questions that require a single answer from both partners.
In order for an opinion on any topic to coincide, you need to go a long way through joint discussion, constructive dialogue.
5. A healthy mind in a healthy body.
There is stress – there is illness. Everyone knows this. Therefore, if the spouses are healthy physically and emotionally, then the psychological climate in the family is prosperous. The lifestyle of such a family is always active.
They find time for joint walks, trips to the countryside, hiking in the forest. All this has a beneficial effect on the psychological balance of all family members.
6. Is everyday life an enemy?
There is an opinion that routine eats love. It is a myth. There are many examples of families where they were able to keep their feelings, did not turn living together into a habit.
To do this, you need to find common hobbies that you will enthusiastically discuss over dinner. You must have a common cause or hobby. There will be another reason to spend time together, discuss the news or watch a movie.
It is important to change the situation, arrange romantic evenings for each other, surprises, get out into nature or abroad. Our advice may seem banal, but not so easy to implement.
A good healthy family needs work, diligence, patience, and sometimes cunning and flexibility.
