What is a Safe Relationship

Navigating unsafe relationships can be an incredibly distressing and frightening experience. It's a situation that can sneak up on us, or perhaps we're just too overwhelmed with fear to reach out for the support we desperately require. In times like these, it's crucial to understand that recognizing the telltale signs of an unsafe relationship is not just a matter of awareness; it's an act of self-compassion and self-preservation.

Recognizing 6 signs of an unsafe relationship can help a person seek and get the help they need to escape.  

    ✧ Expecting the next bad thing to happen.  Where it seems like every day something bad is going to happen, you're expecting it.

  • ✧ Focused on protection, because that is where you're relationship is.  Waiting for the bad, and protecting yourself.
  • ✧ You're not understood, you feel like you don't matter. A healthy partner will try to understand you, will value you, and will love you for you.
  • ✧ You feel small, disrespected, insignificant.  When your partner does not value you, shames you in private or in public.  Domestic violence isn't just physical, it can be emotional too.
  • ✧ Afraid to express ideas, expressing yourself, and your ideas should be mutual in a healthy relationship.
  • ✧ Expecting rejection all the time.  Whether they're criticizing your cooking, your appearance, nothing you do seems to be good enough for them.

Let's pray,

Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank you for teaching us the essence of love through your Word. Help us to live out the qualities of love as described in 1 Corinthians 13:4-7. May our relationships be filled with patience, kindness, humility, forgiveness, and enduring love.

Grant us the strength to be patient with one another, to show kindness in our words and actions. Help us let go of anger and fear, and let us keep no record of wrongs, but instead, rejoice in truth and protect, trust, hope, and persevere in love.

In your name, we pray for the grace to love and be loved, as you have loved us. Amen.
