Ability to change one’s own behaviour according to changing social conditions is an important characteristic of social health. A socially healthy person can also cope with a variety of social situations. Can behave appropriately and be adaptable to changing circumstances. Your spouse can match such people with your co-workers and form good relationships. All of these relationships require good communication. It is important to have empathy and a sense of responsibility for each other. On the other hand, there are negative shades like jealousy, revenge, and loneliness.
