Basic Relationship Rights

5/05/2015


(NOT ORIGINAL CONTENT) Most of my blogging is dedicated to the single girl but I wanted to share something that was universal. I wanted to reach all people who are with or without a relationship. 

You must also remember that the other person needs the same things from you. You have to give to get. So open your mind and soak up what needs to be done. Be the first to take action and others will follow. 
Basic Rights in a Relationship
  • The right to good will from the other.
  • The right to emotional support.
  • The right to be heard by the other and to be responded to with courtesy.
  • The right to have your own view, even if your partner has a different view.
  • The right to have your feelings and experience acknowledged as real.
  • The right to receive a sincere apology for any jokes you may find offensive.
  • The right to clear and informative answers to questions that concern what is legitimately your business.
  • The right to live free from accusation and blame.
  • The right to live free from criticism and judgment.
  • The right to have your work and your interests spoken of with respect.
  • The right to encouragement.
  • The right to live free from emotional and physical threat.
  • The right to live free from angry outbursts and rage.
  • The right to be called by no name that devalues you.
  • The right to be respectfully asked rather than ordered.

What You could be doing to HELP in the Relationship:
  • Be consistent.
  • Be on time. 
  • Call to say you'll be late.
  • Do what you say you will do.
  • Don't lie -- not even little white lies to your partner or to others.
  • Be fair, even in an argument.
  • Be sensitive to the other's feelings. You can still disagree, but don't discount how your partner is feeling.
  • Call when you say you will.
  • Carry your fair share of the workload.
  • Don't overreact when things go wrong.
  • Never say things you can't take back.
  • Don't dig up old wounds.
  • Respect your partner's boundaries.
  • Don’t be jealous.
  • Be a good listener.

"If you have been involved in emotionally abusive relationships, you may not have a clear idea of what a healthy relationship is like," Evans (1992) suggests the following as basic rights in a relationship for you and your partner:
