National Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month continues. Today let's take a peek at some healthy traits you want in a relationship.
This is taken from www.loveisrespect.org. Please take a look at their very helpful website!
In a healthy relationship:
•Your partner respects you and your individuality.
•You are both open and honest.
•Your partner supports you and your choices even when they disagree with you.
•Both of you have equal say and respected boundaries.
•Your partner understands that you need to study or hang out with friends or family.
•You can communicate your feelings without being afraid of negative consequences.
•Both of you feel safe being open and honest.
A good partner is not excessively jealous and does not make you feel guilty when you spend time with family and friends. A good partner also compliments you, encourages you to achieve your goals and does not resent your accomplishments.
