Safety Falls To Us First and Foremost

You get the best version of me when I feel safe with you.

...and want to add that creating safety falls to us first and foremost.

.

I want to focus on emotional safety in dating and relationships with this one.

.

When it comes to emotional safety here are some of the hallmarks:

  • You trust that the other person has your best interest at heart

  • You feel your partner is accountable and reliable

  • They say what they mean and mean what they say

  • No name calling or use of demeaning language toward you

  • Your significant other takes responsibility for their own feelings, not casting blame onto you

  • Your partner does not threaten the relationship to gain control

  • They treat your relationship as if it is a living breathing entity

  • Your partners negotiate their individual needs

  • They are open to having difficult conversations and strive for win-win solutions

  • Your significant other is willing to undo or break destructive patterns and generational cycles knowing that history does not define them and the relationship

.

That's a hefty list right?

.

And that is a short list!

.

Here's the thing:

.

As much as you long for all the qualities listed above in a romantic relationship...

.

...you will not GET THIS until you GIVE IT.

.

...you will not HAVE IT until you BECOME IT.

.

Creating emotional safety in your love relationships is our responsibility because it starts with us.

.

Ohhh so curious what your thoughts are about this one.

.

Love,

Michele
