Closing words about
Respect in Relationships
Respect is a big part of any relationship. When you don’t have
respect, it’s impossible for the relationship to be healthy.
For example, ask yourself these questions…
• How can you feel good if a BF/GF (Boyfriend/Girlfriend) is mean to
you or ignores you?
• How can you say what’s on your mind if you’re not being heard or you
don’t have trust?
• How can you be sure that the relationship is the real thing if you don’t
think your BF/GF likes the real you?
You have to be able to say (and mean) these three-word promises:
I like you. I trust you. I respect you.
I Like You + You Like Me
You care for each other’s well being.
I Trust You + You Trust Me
Trust starts with being honest.
I Respect You + You Respect Me
Getting respect starts with you.
When you communicate honestly and when you care about your partner’s
well-being, then you set the tone for how you want to be treated in return.
