Re: [CHAT] White Ribbon Day & healthy relaiontships

Hi guys

One of the first ways we can help to combat the issue of violence against women is to teach everyone from a young age about what makes up a healthy relationship. Did you ever get taught about this, and if so who from? (School, uni, friend, parent, your own research etc)

I learnt a lot about healthy relationship through church and friends that had solid relationships

@Sophie-RO That's so true about high-school relationships! For me, my high-school relationships were basically a "What not to do 101' for my future relationships, haha.

Hey @stonepixie - that's so true about emotional abuse.... there are some pretty unhelpful myths about violence that we'll be chatting about later...

@stonepixie I had the same experience! Learned that there were other forms of abuse than physical so much later than anyone should

Re: [CHAT] White Ribbon Day & healthy relaiontships

Hey @stonepixie , thanks for joining us! That's totally fine, make sure you look after yourself! 

 

I feel like a lot of people don't learn about emotional abuse and it tends to be overlooked a lot, so you're not alone in not knowing about it straight up.I definitely didn't know about it as early as I wish I did. Unfortunately, sometimes it feels like its something people don't find out about until after the fact, or after they have suffered through it for a long time. 

Re: [CHAT] White Ribbon Day & healthy relaiontships

@redhead I love hearing about solid rolemodels! I think it's really cool that some of them came from your community as well!

Re: [CHAT] White Ribbon Day & healthy relaiontships

Awesome to know that you've all learned about healthy (and unhealthy) relationships from that people in you life!

 So – what are the types of things that make up a healthy relationship?
