In reality, I had no idea of what a healthy relationship was.All I really knew about was the relationship my parents had, which was anything but what I now call healthy.As adults, happiness, emotional safety and self-worth come from how we treat ourselves and others, rather than from how others treat us.
When people do not take responsibility for their own feelings, they tend to try making their partner responsible for their own happiness, emotional safety and self-worth.
I think if we, as women, do those things, then the right men will join us in the right relationships by taking on that role as well.
This is not to say that “being ourselves” means not being open to change and growth, but it just means that we don’t try to be someone we aren’t.
Learning emotional responsibility is vital for creating a healthy relationship.
Kindness, Acceptance, Compassion and Empathy Relationships thrive when both partners are kind, accepting, compassionate and empathetic.
