Positive relationships

Read about what healthy and positive relationships look like
Mutual respect

They value you for who you are. They listen to you when you say you're not comfortable doing something and stop right away. Each person values the other and understands the other person's boundaries.

Trust and honesty

Jealousy is a natural emotion but how a person reacts when feeling jealous is what matters. Telling the truth to each other so that you can build trust

Mutual support

When things are good they celebrate your successes with you. When they are not so good, they lend a shoulder to cry on


There is a give-and-take in your relationship. it should not feel like a power struggle, with one person fighting to get their way all the time 

Separate identities

You should not feel like you're losing out on being yourself, pretend to like something you don't or give up seeing your friends. You should feel free to keep developing new talents or interests, making new friends, and moving forward.

Good communication

Can you talk to each other and share feelings that are important to you? And if you need some time to think something through before you're ready to talk about it, they give you some space
