6 important green flags in relationships that you should know
We hear all the time about dating and relationship red flags, but I believe that it is important to know what you do want here are some healthy green flags in relationships. Green flags signify a relationship characterized by emotional safety, mutual respect, and a genuine desire to foster each other’s well-being and growth. These positive signs indicate a partnership that has a strong potential for happiness and longevity.
1. You are Friends, not just Lovers
One of the green flags in a relationship is you connect on an emotional, supporting, friendly and heartfelt level, the same as on a physical and sexual level.
2. Knowing when they are getting triggered and knowing how to untrigger is a sign of a green flag in a relationship.
They know their shadows and their triggers and also know how to deal with them and calm themselves down before taking it out on you or projecting their hurt, and traumas onto you or others.
3. Know what type of support to ask for and also want to know how they can support you
They know what they need and wish for and they know how to ask for it. The same importance for them is the need to know how they can support you.
4. Open and vulnerable communication is one of the green flags in relationships
Of course, open and vulnerable communication also requests some self-awareness and self-knowledge. They can communicate easily with you and others about their feelings and share vulnerable thoughts with their partner without hurting or blaming someone else.
5. Boundaries are being respected
Another important relationship green flag is, that your and their boundaries are being respected and kept and they are not trying to convince you of sth, that is only in their interest.
For example, you say, that you need some time for yourself or you don’t want to talk about it, once saying so is enough to be respected. Maybe this also takes a little practice in the beginning, I will be writing about setting healthy boundaries here.
6. Healthy Disagreements = emotionally validate your experience even if they don´t agree with it is a green flag in a relationship
They validate your experience even if they don’t agree with it is also another important green flag in relationships. That you have healthy disagreements in your relationship means that you value each other and love each other no matter what disagreements you have.
Watch out not only for green flags in others but also in yourself 🙂
