Healthy Relationships

All relationships are different and different people like and want different things from their relationships.

Everyone has their own individual opinions on how relationships work but you shouldn’t feel pressured to do things that you don’t want to in a relationship or feel trapped or isolated by being in a relationship you don’t want to be in.

Healthy relationship checklist

In your relationship do you feel:

  • Supported?
  • Safe?
  • Happy?
  • Trusted?
  • Loved?
  • Do you have fun?

Emotional abuse is quite common amongst young people. This might start as ignoring your feelings or expecting you to do things you don’t want to, but can quickly become more frightening and controlling

If you aren’t happy in any of your relationships (this might be with a partner, friend or a family member) then the best thing you can do is talk to someone.

It is good to talk honestly with your partner, friends or family about what you think is OK and not OK, so that you can make decisions about relationships that are right for you and stop any situations that might otherwise get out of control.
