24-Hour Domestic Abuse Hotline: 208.343.7025


From Bev’s Desk

24-Hour Domestic Violence Hotline: 208.343.7025 24-hour Rape Crisis Hotline: 208.345.7273 (RAPE)

Bev La ChanceOh, those teenage years – new experiences, new feelings, getting to know yourself and, sometimes, flat out bewilderment as you try to fit in to this crazy world.  Making friends and establishing relationships can be a tricky prospect – so knowing what to look out for in order to keep that relationship healthy is important.  The following elements should be kept in mind when teens, or any one of us, find ourselves feeling swept off of our feet.  Take off the rose-colored glasses, toss the blinders and take a look at the following.

  • Mutual Respect – Respect means that you value your partners individuality and understand their boundaries- and vice versa. Know what you stand for and don’t be willing to compromise.
  • Trust – at the core of many unhealthy relationships is jealousy – it seems to be pervasive in domestic violence.  A relationship can’t be healthy if you don’t feel confident that your relationship is underscored by trust
  • Honesty – It’s hard to trust someone if they aren’t being honest. When honesty is questioned, trust finds shaky ground and the relationship suffers
  • Good communication – speak honestly and openly so that miscommunication is avoided.  Never keep feelings bottled up because you’re afraid it is not what your partner wants to hear
