Domestic Violence Awareness

30th November 2023

All relationships go through ups and downs.  They take the commitment to each other with the intention of each one to adapt and change with your partner as you live through the seasons that life brings.  Healthy relationships involve honesty, trust, respect, and open communication between partners.  It takes effort and compromise from both people.  There should be no imbalance of power. If one partner actively disrespects, ignores, or demeans the other person this is abusive behaviour.  There should not be fear of the relationship but a willingness to resolve conflict and recognise that communication is a key part of any relationship.
The following points help growth in your relationship together.

  • Desiring the best for one another – being pleased that your partner grows as an individual as well as being vigilant to nurture your couple relationship.       
  • Enjoy each other with quality time. Have some fun!   
  • Make time to communicate and talk.
  • Be a good listener. 
  • Learn to give and receive. 
  • Be demonstrative with physical affection. 
  • Be kind.
  • Give one another support at difficult times. 
  • Love is patient, love is kind.  It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
