Today I Choose…

There are a lot of choices in dating and relationships. And while you cannot choose how your dating partner behaves towards you, you can choose to to display those qualities yourself and seek them in others.  We have created a series of graphics to post on our social media pages to spread awareness of healthy relationship qualities to the teenagers in Warren County.

 

Today we hope that you choose to be RESPECTED. If your dating partner does not value your opinion, your friendships, or your beliefs, we hope that you choose to walk away.

Respect should not be optional.

 

Today we hope that you choose to TRUST. If you or your dating partner constantly check up on each other, accuse one another of cheating, or have to have each other’s passwords to check social media postings, we hope that you stop and look at your relationship.

Trust should not be optional.

 

 

Today we hope that you choose to SPEAK KINDLY. Sometimes we forget how much words can hurt and we say things jokingly that aren’t funny at all.  We hope that you are speaking to your dating partner with kindness.

Kindness should not be optional.

 

 

 

Today we hope that you choose to EDUCATE.  If you see red flags in a relationship, we hope that you choose to gently let that person know or seek help from an adult.

The willingness to educate others should not be optional.
