February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month
February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month – 2018’s theme is “Healthy Me, Healthy We! A journey of self-love, strength, and positivity.”
The members of Let’s Be Real want the 2018 Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month theme to remind each and every one of you that you are good enough, you deserve to spend your time and energy as you wish, and you are ALWAYS worthy of a love that builds you up – especially love from yourself.
Telling the difference between healthy, unhealthy and abusive relationships can be difficult. Although no two relationships are the same, these are common warning signs of dating abuse from BreakTheCycle.org:
- Checking cell phones, emails or social networks without permission
- Extreme jealousy or insecurity
- Constant belittling or put-downs
- Explosive temper
- Isolation from family and friends
- Making false accusations
- Constant mood swings towards you
- Physically inflicting pain or hurt in any way
- Telling someone what to do
- Repeatedly pressuring someone to have sex
