That’s where we can help.
There are many types of relationships we can enjoy with others:
Our happiness and well being largely depend on the relationships we build with others.
When we choose to build positive, meaningful, and healthy relationships we strengthen ourselves emotionally, socially and physically.
Strong relationships allow both people to feel supported and connected but still feel independent.
Healthy Relationships require work, flexibility, compromis and caring to remain healthy.
All Healthy Relationships must consistently have these 3 qualities:
- You feel physically safe, emotionally safe, your reputation is safe, your possessions are safe and your other relationships are safe.
- You receive respect for your feelings, thoughts, beliefs, opinions, personal boundaries, physical body, personal possessions, and your work/contributions.
- Your feelings, thoughts, needs, desires, opinions and work are of equal value to the other person. You have equal power in your relationship.
