"100% of us are in relationships and 100% of us can learn to love better."
We can all benefit in learning how to love a little better. All too often we fall victim to those rose colored glasses and dismiss those red flags we should be paying attention to. We need to educate ourselves about what healthy and unhealthy relationships entail, empower ourselves to pay attention to how we should be treated and ultimately learn to love better.
Join me in learning about: the 10 signs of a healthy and unhealthy relationship, how pop culture tends to glamorize unhealthy relationships and the misconception we have about empathy so that you are able to be
in the relationships that you need and deserve to be in.
Healthy relationships bring out the best in you and make you feel good about yourself. A healthy relationship does not mean a “perfect” relationship, and no one is healthy 100% of the time, but the signs below are behaviors you should strive for in all of your relationships. Healthy relationships manifest themselves as healthy communication, but in order to have a healthy
relationship, you need to love yourself first.
While everyone does unhealthy things sometimes, we can all learn to love better by recognizing unhealthy signs and shifting to healthy behaviors. If you are seeing unhealthy signs in your relationship, it’s important to not ignore them and understand they can escalate to abuse.
Pop culture affects our views of love and relationships in helpful and hurtful ways. It can be entertaining to watch disastrous on-screen couples, but it’s time to start questioning those relationships. They are practically romanticizing abuse, betrayal, sabotage and encouraging sociopathic behaviors.
What does empathy really mean?
