February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month

Teen Dating Violence includes four types of behavior: Physical Violence Sexual Violence, Psychological Aggression, and Stalking.  It can take place in-person or electronically, such as repeated texting or posting sexual pictures of a partner online without consent. Teens often think some behaviors, like teasing and name-calling, are a “normal” part of a relationship—but these behaviors can become abusive and develop into serious forms of violence. Many teens do not report unhealthy behaviors, because they are afraid to tell family and friends. If you are a teenager experiencing abusive behaviors please reach out to a trusted adult or call our Safe Haven program at 419-289- 8085, 24 hours a day/7 days a week.

Valentine's Day

Sunday is Valentine’s Day. Here is my best advice for relationships. If you want a friend, be a friend. If you want a better spouse, be a better spouse. The bottom line is that if you want to have good relationships you have to start with yourself. Are you trustworthy? Are you supportive? Do you give the other space to be themselves? Do you support their success? Do you give them the help and support they need to be their best selves? If you focus on being this kind of friend and partner, you will likely come to find your relationships improve.  Give it a try.

I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.” Finding ways to build honest and supportive relationships is one of the most important things you can do for your mental health and to increase your feelings of wellbeing.
