My dear friends,
So often we talk about red flags, things to look out for, signs that someone might not be who they say they are, and intuitive hits that things might not be all that they seem.
Content about red flags has been popular lately, and rightfully so. It’s important to be mindful, aware, and in tune with where you are, who you’re with, and what the intentions might be. This week, however, I wanted to switch gears and shed some light on green flags, the good signs, the positive omens, and the things to look for that make you breathe a sigh of relief and let you know that in this moment, things are okay.
We’ve all been through so much over the course of these two years of a pandemic and global turmoil, many of us are suffering and feel like we are at the end of our ropes. It can be hard to be open, receptive, and vulnerable to new people because quite honestly, it’s a little scary out there.
The thing to remember is that beneath the surface of all the chaos and uncertainty that happens around us in the world, I do believe that the right people will come in to our lives at the right time, and it is our willingness and ability to be clear, connected, and centered within ourselves that we can cultivate and maintain these relationships.
I’ve had a lot of ups and downs in my personal relationships, but in my lifetime of experience, when these five factors are in play I feel much more calm, centered, and at peace.
1. Clear communication. Open and clear communication absolutely put me more at ease. (It’s actually why it’s first!) Relationships should not feel like games, clear communication dissolves that tit for tat mentality and creates a level field for all involved.
2. Honesty and vulnerability. I really value when someone can speak from their heart in a kind and compassionate way. There’s nothing more frustrating than playing guessing games with someone and not really knowing where you stand. The right people will be truthful and open and won’t leave you questioning yourself.
3. Integrity. It’s really common to meet people who say all the things they think you want them to say, but if their actions don’t align with their words, it can leave us feeling duped and disappointed. Seek out the people who say what they mean and mean what they say.
4. Displays healthy boundaries. We all are unique in our wants, needs, and desires. It’s important for all of us to care for ourselves in an aligned and kind way. Brene Brown recently noted in a study that the most compassionate people she has met are the ones with the strongest boundaries. The people who know when to say yes and when to say no are the ones to keep around.
5. Isn’t afraid to admit mistakes. Part of the human experience is making mistakes, the power of a misstep is owning it, learning from it, and making amends when needed. Strong character comes from the ability to know when to apologize.
What are some green flags you’ve experienced in relationships? I’d love to hear in the comments!
