Healthy relationships

Most of the time, relationships are fun and healthy. In a healthy relationship, you enjoy the time you spend with the other person and feel good about yourself. Sometimes, though, relationships can be unhealthy.

What makes a relationship healthy?
Healthy relationships are fun and make you feel good about yourself. You can have a healthy relationship with anyone in your life – family, friends, and the people you date. Relationships take time and care to make them healthy. The relationships you have as a teen are a special part of your life and will teach you good lessons about who you are.

Communication and sharing
The most important part of any healthy relationship is communication. Communication means that you are able to share things about yourself and your feelings, and you listen to what the other person shares. This can happen by talking, e-mailing, writing, or even using body language. When you are talking to someone, look him or her in the eye to show you are listening.

When you have healthy communication, you both feel at ease. You can share your feelings with the other person. You know that he or she will be there to listen, support you, and keep personal things that you share private. In healthy relationships, people do not lie.


Example : Me and my frenz.

I am trying to tell her what is on my mind, but she keeps changing the TV channel. She is not being a good listener.



Example :

She is facing me and lookin in my eye. She is really listening to me.
