A healthy relationship

is butterflies of joy and excitement

not fear and sadness

A healthy relationship

is sharing my feelings, open and honest

not hiding everything so you don't get mad

A healthy relationship

is happily spending time together because we want to

not because you'll hurt yourself otherwise

A healthy relationship

is bittersweet goodbyes and "until next time"s

not "this is goodbye for good if you leave"

A healthy relationship

is coming to you for help, trusting

not going to the police for help, terrified

A healthy relationship

is what I am slowly learning to have

With Myself.

not what you gave me.
