The media is always portraying the bad sides to being in a relationship. From couples breaking up to one person cheating on the other, it seems like nothing good will ever come out of starting a relationship. With all this negativity, you may never hear about the benefits to staying with a partner. Relationships can actually improve your physical and mental health if they are with the right person and take place in a healthy environment. If you are looking for some reasons to start a relationship or continue your existing one, then check out this article to learn nine ways relationships are good for your health.

1) Self-Confidence

Relationships and self-confidence can be a double edged sword. On one hand your self-esteem plays a role in dictating the success of the relationship and the satisfaction each person has in the partnership. When one person in a relationship has low self-esteem, it can damage the relationship and lead to more problems. On the other hand, a well-balanced relationship can boost your own self-confidence. People who are in long term relationships feel a sense of security from having the constant companionship of another person. This in turn allows them to be assured of themselves and maintain a positive disposition. Maintaining a relationship will give you the benefit of having a support system when things go south. Your self-confidence will never fade when you have someone who is always there when you need words of wisdom or a compliment.
