To cultivate Healthy Relationships in one’s life, a key prerequisite is to be healthy oneself. So, if you want to set and work toward goals of having healthy friendships, healthy family relationships, and healthy romantic possibilities, the place to start is with yourself.
There are some neat books you can start with, like, If the Buddha Dated by Charlotte Kasl, or Homecoming, by John Bradshaw. There is great Wellness Counseling at the K-State Counseling Services, and you can always start by speaking with a trusted professor, an old friend, a parent, an RA or SafeZone Ally, or a pastor, priest, rabbi, or cleric.
Think of this: If you get yourself into a really great place, where you are pursuing the things you like; where you are passionate about your life and your interests, you will attract similar people to yourself.
And then, the relationships you form will naturally be positive and long-lasting .
Here are some handouts and websites to get you thinking:
