I was on Pinterest searching for an AWESOME pic about healthy relationships and saw more negative quotes than positive ones! :-( ERROR MESSAGE!!!!!! In relationships we often normalize unhealthy behavior because this is what is often romanticized in movies and media-the struggle, the sacrifice, the difficulties! BUT we at Between Friends believe healthy behavior can add to an amazing and exciting relationship without the drama!
You DESERVE to be in a healthy and happy relationship. No need to go through the hurt and the pain ESPECIALLY if it’s a pattern. No relationship is perfect but when unhealthy behavior is a pattern and there is no attempt to change it, that’s a WARNING SIGN! You hoping that they will change isn’t going to allow them to change.
If any problem is bothering you in a relationship, you should feel comfortable enough to share what’s going on with your partner! Nothing can change if you don’t let them know what’s up!
We hear that a lot in schools! No relationship is perfect but you don’t have to be in a relationship with fighting or even arguing!! It is possible to have a calm and effective conversation. When you stop fighting in a relationship it doesn’t mean that there is nothing worth fighting for it just means you found a better way to resolve your problems!
Don’t ever give up on finding the right relationship for you! Remember relationships take work and patience. Take the time to build with that person and enjoy the time you two spend as friends! We’ll be sure to post some more tips to help you out!
